Poured from a 12OZ bottle, the color is a hazy light yellow. I smell citrus, white bread and light grass. I taste all of the same with a clean finish. Good.

GuideDogSaint (1079) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 9, 2016
355ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of wheat malt lemon. Very mild sourness but really a sweet finish. A bit thin.

Draft - Light wheat and a touch of sour notes. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Loght wheat and a touch of citrus. A bit boring.

Reviewed March 17, 2014. A: Pours a hazy straw color. The head is about two fingers high, and completely white. It fades to a thin film somewhat rapidly, with a soapy yet somewhat soft texture. Some lacing is left behind. S: Just from the aroma, the character seems closer to a wit than a hefeweizen. Itís mostly forward in candied sugar and black pepper, with subtler hints of clove and coriander. Nothing exciting, but it works acceptably. T: The flavor profile is mostly just wheat malt with some lemon. There is, however, a light kiss of tart fruit that hit the palate before fading quickly. It also finishes with just a hint of spice esters. Similar to the nose, thereís little excitement, just a pleasantly drinkable offering. Wait: a bit more lemony tartness is coming to the forefront? Awesome! Letís raise the scores some. M: This is a very crisp and light beer; itís also vaguely sweet-finishing, but I donít care. The carbonation is strong without being oppressive. Ultimately, itís both refreshing and easy to drink, but somewhat dinky. O: I really like how thereís some genuinely noticeable tartness, even to my scorched-Earth palate. Yet, itís disguised within a well-balanced yet unassuming wheat beer. Without the sour notes, this would be BOOO-RING; thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster they exist, and help to make this one pretty solid. Iíd even buy it again!

Hazy yellow white head. Light earthy aroma. tartness up front, lingers and then leaves a fairy flat taste after. Not thrilling or complex.

Pours a medium golden yellow color. Aroma is lacking, traces of grass, malt, and maybe some hops. Flavor was almost as bland as the smell, a little sweetness, followed by a touch of hops. Not much here.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4237) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 12, 2016
New Belgium Snapshot 5% It is listed as a tart wheat beer with a cloudy light gold color that possesses a filmy eggshell white head. A tart wheat aroma that is very reminiscent of a Gose. The taste is wheat, soda bread, some lemon and a mild tartness. It feels to me it is midway between a Gose and a wheat ale. That tartness is very mild in the finish. It's ok but isn't as good as the previous two bottles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at New Belgium Hub, DIA. Pours cloudy yellow with a medium, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy earthy wheat malt, light lemon zest and earthy hops. Flavor is lightly tart lemon zest, moderate earthy wheat malt, light earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation.

My second encounter with New Belgium brews was even better. This american wheat beer is refreshing, slightly sour and little bit of banana sweetness as well. I tip my hat off!

Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is citrusy and wheat. Taste is a wheat body with citrusy hops. Easy going down beer. Nice lacing.
