Pours a hazy yellow with a quickly dissipating head. I really wanted to like this better. The lemon seems to have provided a bit too much sourness but not as much flavor. Needs done sweetness for balance.

Bottle shared @ ChrisO after GBBF Day 1. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste wheat, lightly lemon, a tour of lime, slightly sweet. Average body and carbonation. Decent.

Smells wretched. Tastes is what I imagine Windex is like. But Windex might actually be better. Avoid this one at all costs.

mansquito (3337) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Claw Daddy’s, NYC: Pours soapy looking yellow with a white head. Aroma is soapy... lemon soap to be precise. Taste is similarly lemony. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. In any case, this was not my cup of beer.

nick76 (4211) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2014
The aroma is of lemon candy, wheat, and yeast. The appearance is yellow with a big foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a chemical bitterness. The palate is thin. Overall not good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Sampled on draft at Dad’s Pub this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a medium sized yellow-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was lemon, sage, oregano, wildflower and perfume - very odd. The flavor was dryish and chalky with notes of perfume, herbs, wildflower and sage. Long finish. Light body. Meh.

lb4lb (2520) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours hazy yellow light gold. Smell is lemon and wheat! Taste is similar. Very lemony, lightly tangy and some wheat. This is such a perfect gateway craft beer. Just what I would have wanted 7 years ago. Still enjoyable. Typical Abita flavor. Decent. Medium body light carbonation.

Pours a hazy yellow. Aroma is wheat and some lemon tartness. Taste is sweet for the most part with some lemon juice dripped in.

Pour at the Coney Island beer festival at mcu park. Lemony wheat flavor with a fruity taste. Decent

Hazy yellow in color. Very lemony aroma. Almost overpowering taste of lemon. Sweet. Actually too sweet.
