Good fuzziness! Lacing, yes. Feels perfect in my mouth. Smells skunky a bit, little bitter, but good aftertaste. Solid. Would rather buy a 6 pack of a weihenstephaner.

Hazy, smells of citrus, clean taste with a crisp finish. My personal favorite

I really dig this beer. I’m a novice as it comes to beer but this is my favorite Wheat Ale I have come across.
It pores a extremely hazy but bright gold, with a finger length head that dissipates quickly.
I would almost want to describe this as closer to a pale ale. The only thing setting it apart is the carbonation.
The aroma is very mild with hints of spices and wheat and the taste is mild as well, but the carbonation carries it well. It’s a subtle and easy drinking ale.
Will be purchasing again!

Decent beer that seem to be mimicking a hefeweizen. I can only recommend this if you can't get a hold of an authentic German hefeweizen. Cheers! C (75-79) score range

Well crafted Belgian Witbier. Extremely florescent looking with a very bright, neon gold glow.
