1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Normally I like abita but this release is really bad. The initial taste is bland with no lemon flavor. The after taste reminded me of the chalky pink candies. Not a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Zesty lemon peel, vanilla, spicy yeasty, wheat aroma. Tangy, sweet cracker, wheat, bready/cereal, vanilla, lightly tart lemon flavor. Pretty easy to drink but nothing too special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks decent; an ever so slightly hazy (almost completely transparent) gold with white lacing. Smells of wheat, lemon zest, and yeast with light hop notes. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An alright wheat ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Short 12oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow, lots of floaties. Aroma of wheat malt, piss, and lemonade. Carbonation is nice, it has a light mouthfeel, must be an unique yeast strain. Taste is of simple wheat malt, some straw notes. Finishes like a lager. Crisp and refreshing, with a touch of lemon fruit, zero tartness. Perfect flavors for summer. I could do without the floaties tho. (3754)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy pastel yellow with a white fluffy head that slowly subsides to a 1/8 cap.
Aroma: From a few feet away, you will immediately intake lemon zest. As I get closer, I get the classic wheat ale aromas such as bread dough, banana, but honestly, the lemon peel is the most dominate.
Taste: Lemon essence/zest, bready, low spicy hops. Finishes very quickly, leaving no aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Deceptively thin. Fizzy carbonation.
Overall: The lemon was in your face from an aroma standpoint. Dare I say this would be a good candidate for beginners, those who don’t really like beer, or girls.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of candied citrus and wheat. The taste is tart citrus and mild wheat. Thin and watery, muddled and almost seems a bit dirty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Tickers gotta tick. Hazy unfiltered yellow-orange. Thin, creamy, white head. Mellow orange-banana-tea aroma. Medium bodied, very drinkable, just a touch of bitterness up front...easy yeasty finish. Not outright bad, but not really good either.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured pale golden with a short white head. The aroma picked up slightly-sweetened lemon juice and tart peel over soft biscuit and wheaty notes. The flavor found bitter lemon and odd dank notes throughout (perhaps from the yeast), with grainy wheat support.. more hop-like lemon and grassy bitterness on the finish. Light-bodied with a grainy/scratchy flow through the palate.. this just wasn’t very enjoyable.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white head. Lemon zest aroma. Flavor is pretty lemon with a little wheat following. Finish is papery/blah, tho the start was fruity.
