Cloudy orange color with with big white head. Super light body almost thin with soft carbonation. Mostly a light bitterness dominated the flavor very mild. Aromas of floral and piney hops. I’m suprised this is a wheat ale because I didn’t really detect that while drinking the beer. I’d describe it as a very very light IPA maybe even a watered down version. I haven’t tried many low alcohol beers but this was very drinkable because of the body and great taste.

TheBeerGod (5178) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy gold with a medium, blond head. Strong floral hops in the nose along with a lemony, citrus zest. Taste is strong floral and citrus hops up front with yeast, soft wheat and lemon drops behind it. Body is light and very lively with a lingering hop bitterness. Finishes with abundant hops, citrus, yeast, light malt and light wheat. Not my favorite style but not bad for a 1.9% beer.

Bottle sample at CBC 2012. Deep golden and zippy in the glass. Mild-hoppy aroma. Starts surprisingly intense fruity, modest sweet. Finish less fruity, milder, but not washy. Some interesting grasy notes. Interesting beer!
