Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Decent aroma and flavor of floral hops and citrus. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation.

meh, Itís not bad at all. Itís just nothing to write much about. Light flavor, great palate / mouthfeel, and refreshing without being all annoying and citrusy. Itís OK, and thatís okay.

Tap at founders. Not too much aroma. Light lager type flavor. This might be the worst beer at founders but doesnít have the skunky flavor like AB and Miller. Donít get me wrong, I still would rather drink this than Bud Light.

On tap @Founders. Everything about this beer is LITE. It has a LITE yellow appearance with a LITE aroma. LITE wheaty taste with LITE hop flavor. LITE citrus notes and LITE alcohol content. also LITE carbonation. Its actually an OK beer, but I expect more from Founders.

okay...pretty much everything silphium said about this beer is true....macro appearance with medium white head...aroma is very grassy and floral...flavor is a watered down version of their extra pale ale...grassy, wheat, and yeast.....a lame effort by this fine brewery

On tap at Founders. Clearish straw-colored body, thin off-white head. Light grassy, spicy aroma. Flavor starts with dry, biscuity wheat, quickly leading to strange perfumey, spicy hops notes, which dominate the grassy flavors imparted by the wheat. The overall effect is spiked hop water with a touch of alcohol for effect. The worst beer Iíve ever tried at Founders. Thankfully a handful of stellar beers were on tap to assuage my pain.
