Picked up a 12-pack while on vacation in San Diego as I figured it was a style the whole family would enjoy. The beer pours a golden hazy color with a 1/4 finger white head with minimal retention and lacing. The nose was unimpressive and didn't present the hefeweizen yeast character expected. A lot of lemony fruity flavors. You can almost taste the sweetness on the nose. The taste follows suit: sweet lemons with minimal malt background. Mild bitterness. Some wheat flavor as well. Lighter end of medium bodied. Adequate carbonation.

Overall, this really wasn't what I was expecting. Far too sweet and I found the name misleading as it didn't seem like a hefeweizen. That said, the non-beer drinkers in the family really enjoyed how easy drinking they found it and enjoyed the sweetness and lemons, so to each their own. Not for me.

A- light amber color with small white head, no lace.

S- bready, yeasty, light citrus, simple and clean.

T- grains, spices, a bit of a cities hop,

M- medium bodied, and finishes dry

O- not a bad brew if you are into simple beers. Nothing really stands out with this one. It's good, but nothings going to jump out at you with this one.
