UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 Draft. Hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma of hops but also with a slight cabbage note. Medium/light body with malt sweetness upfront and notes of stone-fruit and wheat. -- Much better on second sampling. More citrus hop aroma and the cabbage is gone. Nice hop bitterness and wheat body.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 Draft in taproom. Poured a slightly hazy straw with a small white head. Aroma and flavor were quite hoppy. Lots of citrus, a bit of pine, some spice. Light, sweet wheat, without much banana or clove. Medium light palate. Quite crisp; prickly carbonation. -- Rerate: I’ve had this quite a few times now and am really coming to like it. Did some more research on the American "pale wheat" beer and now get what they’re going for. And they nailed it. As I understand it, "pale" refers to the lack of yeast normally added to a hefeweizen, the yeast that gives those beers their usual flavor profile of banana and clove. So a pale wheat highlights the smooth, slightly sweet, refreshing character of that grain, without the flavors that actually come from the use of the weizen yeast.
