A decent full mouthfeel for a refreshing beer. Wheat and citrus flavors came through the strongest with spicy undertones. I wasn’t blown away by the flavor, but it is a more interesting flavor than many of the wheats I have tried.

Cloudy, golden bronze in color with a creamy, 3/8" white head. Smells of Wonderbread, orange cream, nutmeg and cloves. Taste is cherry-vanilla, amarillo and orange cream. Subtly sweet. Not really any strong flavor elements; rather reserved. Decent summer drink.

This poured out a very murky and cloudy yellow with a white head that almost shot up over the top of the glass. The head stuck around for a bit and left rings of lace as this was drank. The aroma was yeasty with a bit of spice and a lemony zip to it. Also there was a good amount of sweetness present in the nose. The flavor started off with doughy malt and lemony notes and a bit of banana. There were also notes of various spices through that taste. It finished with a dry spicy after taste. Mouthfeel is medium and feels pretty heavy on the tongue. This is pretty tasty and wheat beers are usually not my thing, but I could drink a lot of this if I was in the mood. Great example of the style and a great beer.

Yeasty/golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma has banana and citrus. Taste is pleasant, but too watery. Descent but nothing special.

Yeast cloud this deep golden hued summer refresher. Topped with a modicum of clean sharp white head, lacing acceptable. Aroma of apples, pears, and plums...backed with light yeast and wheat. Crisp. Sugary sweet across the toungue, spreading out into a cool, oily and extremely refreshing wheat. Leaves a fresh lemony smack on the palate. Clean and smooth. When it’s hot, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Orange rinds from the time I got my nose within a foot to the open bottle... many citrus and wheat flavors while staying crisp and light. Probably the best "summer" beer I know.
