12 oz. Lively body is lightly hazy and golden with a lasting disc of bubbles. Aromas of honey, cracked dry wheat, and white grape with some earthy must. Taste is the same nice mix until some sickly tart lemon shows up and dominates a bit too much. Light body has average carbonation and finishes acidicly astringent.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Super Market - Blairstone - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling light golden with a murky tint and a long lasting snow white head. Aroma has some lemon zest to it with a spicy zing. Flavor is crisp with some lemony note, a hint of yeast, some coriander notes. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it. Refreshing in the late spring heat.

Very nice shot of lemon zest spruces up an otherwise fairly average wheat ale. Light, crisp and refreshing + low alcohol content could lead to sucking down far too many of these by the pool.

Poobah (258) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - APR 29, 2013
Pale gold similar to lemon juice with a thin head. Somewhat lemony nose. Slightly-carbonated mouthfeel with a malty presence throughout. Lemons noticeable in the aftertaste alongside a mild lemon drop sweetness.

Aholmb1 (88) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - APR 28, 2013
Appearance: hazy yellow color, about a one inch head, good amount of lacing on the glass, head dissolves fairly quickly but still leaves a nice foam on top Aroma: lemon aroma, light and refreshing Taste: lemon comes through in the flavor but its not overwhelming the wheat flavor , bitterness at the end, light body Palette: tingles on tongue, leaves a bitterness flavor Overall: this would be a great summer beer, the lemon flavor is definitely present in the beer but I expected it to me a little bit more lemony, very easy beer to drink and relax with ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: very hazy light yellow color, pours with a large white head, but it fades quickly, minimal lacing Aroma: wheat, lemon, kind of subtle Taste: wheat grains, lemon, hint of bitterness on the finish, Palate: light body, soft carbonation, leaves a very subtle bitter aftertaste Overall: The name of this beer describes it perfectly, wheat and lemon are the predominate flavors, this is a very drinkable beer, if kind of simple,
