2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at the brewery, served very cold with 1/8 of a lemon. Murky yellow, no head. Hardly any aroma. Lightbodied, fizzy. Light spicy wheat base, light citric notes, quick finish. I would be surprised if they used a German yeast in this one. I see that I disagree with previous raters, there seems to be some variability

Much better than the wheat beer on tap that we sampled at the same time. THis one had vibrant fruit flavors, but also some nice yeasty sour notes and a very smooth finish. Bright and complex. I like this one a lot.

Pours a nice golden hazy color. Aroma is pleasant with citrus, banana, and some spice. Taste is similar with lots of tingling on the tongue. Maybe alittle thin. Overall, surprisingly good.

Fizzy carbonation, light bodied, well attenuated, overall clean, dry.
