look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: A lightly hazy pale gold. The creamy white head is thin and doesn't last very long.

S: Moderate wheat malt and moderately-low citrus hops aroma.

T: There is a moderate soft malt flavor and slight more hops bitterness. The low hops flavor is citrusy. The balance is somewhat bitter. The finish is dry and the aftertaste is a of a light fruit ester.

M: Smooth medium bodied with moderately-high carbonation. A little creamy.

O: Not bad but it doesn't impress me; I'd like more hops flavor and aroma. An average American Wheat.

12oz bottle about 1.5mo old; review from notes

Pours a terrific looking cloudy yellow gold. Looks a bit like Mt. Dew. smell is bready: wheat, grain , yeast, coriander, spice, as it warms there's pumpkin. Taste is more of the same: bright/clean yeast bread/wheat, some lemon, coriander, light pepper. Finish is crisp grain. Feel is a tad thin, maybe little undercarbonated.

Great tasty wheat, with moderate complexity. I could drink this all day.

Pours a light golden with way too much head. Decent lacing when the head finally disappeared. Nose is grassy,with hints of lemon...Something not quite right.Body is light and carbonated, but dry, not crisp Taste is grainy, with some hints of fruit. tart finish. Barley average. Don't go out of your way....
