Light hazy gold, no head. Nose of citrusy yeast, a bit of esters & phenols but fairly light. Also a nice hop note with it to carry it along. Finishes balanced & awesome. I like this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden. Aroma is very wheaty with notes of lemons, bananas, bread and more wheat. Nice tart finish. This one offered way more than the American wheats from the other 2 Bend brewers I visited.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draft at the brewpub Bend) Pours hazy orangey gold with a big white foamy head.
Aromas of banana and citrus (lemon) and wheat bread. This is decidedly not an American-style wheat.
Light-bodied, crisp and clean. There’s a bit of sweetness mixed with the tangy finish which I found a little unusual. Best wheat beer in the Bend area.
