COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional summer wheat beer marries a west coast Pale ale. Brewed with locally grown wheat, providing a complex mouthfeel, and single-hopped and generously dry-hopped with Amarillo, creating a glorious citrusy aroma and finish. The approachable 5% abv makes this the perfect session beer on a summer day.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2012
Served on draft at Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear golden color with a thin frothy head. Poor head retention. Aroma of herbal hops and pale malts. Very similar taste. Medium bodied and pretty bland.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 19, 2012
355mL found for $2. Pours a low haze golden. Thicker than expected white head. Webby lacing. Nose is squashy, pineapple air freshener, grass, odd butterscotch. As it warms more butterscotch. Taste is dry, grassy, soapy, spicy. Hints of butterscotch in the background. Fairly bitter. Odd but not offensive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ibrew2or3 (7097) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2012
12oz bottle pours clear effervescent gold with white head. The aroma is lemon acidity at times and sugary cotton candy marshmallow at other times. The taste does offer up a decent dose of lemon like citrus with some acidity. Behind that is sort of a sweet floral cotton candy like sensation and a bit of grainy malts. OK, summer brew, eh? Maybe this is better when super fresh and what I have maybe isn’t super fresh.

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2013
On tap at Finback during a bar crawl through Bar Harbor with my wife. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, sweet and bready. Little buttery, soft and musky. Light sweetness, crisp musk, dusky grain. Tolerable, but not worth it.

Draft. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Wheaty aroma with a light grainy sweetness. The flavor is grainy and wheaty with some straw and light earthy hops. Not bad.
