The beer pours out into a Duvel glass a clear bright yellow with a thick, fluffy 2 1/2" white head that slowly recedes to a thin layer of foam that leaves patches of lacing. Sipping leaves scattered patches of lacing. Eventually the head recedes to an large island of foam, a circle of foam with patches and legs of lacing clinging to the sides of the glass.

The aromas include the wheat, a bit of malt and some light touches of honey.

The flavors include the wheat, some sweetness from the malt, and hints of earthy bitterness from the hops.

The mouthfeel is on the light bodied and slightly crisp from the moderate carbonation. The finish is medium length and begins with the sweetness fading away leaving the grains and dry bitterness to gradually close the show.

Overall while this is not an exceptional beer it is clean, refreshing and easy drinker. It would be particularly good during the summer and at a backyard barbecue. While, I don't intend to seek out another bottle, I certainly could be persuaded to accept another and am glad to have tried it.

Poured into a weizen glass. Pours a light golden amber with thin white head that dissapates to patches leaving light, slippery lacing. Aroma of light, grainy lager malt, hints of wheat and honey. Light bodied with good carbonation. An odd take on a wheat beer, smelling and tasting much more like a light adjunct lager with additional flavors. There is some wheat, especially in the taste, and some nice light honey flavor, as well as a hint of clove, but this does not fit a wheat beer profile very well. The light honey is nice and the taste is more interesting than a typical adjunct beer, but that is faint praise. Drinkable and harmless, but should be reformulated to bring out the wheat character that would make this stand out.
