COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hazy and golden in color, this brew is a fresh twist on the popular Hefeweizen style. Eureka and Lisbon lemons, from three growing regions in California, balance out the wheat malt character, resulting in a crisp and refreshing wheat ale with subtle lemon flavor. Cheers!

The lemon makes makes it feel almost like some sort of perfumated soap/detergent. Weak, undercarbonated palate. Little harmony between the hops and the wheat/yeast.

JoeinDahlem (1333) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2012
A zesty wheat beer that is pretty much like the others. Thickly hazy orange color capped with white foam. Tangy orange-marmelade nose, juicy navel orange taste, and virtually no bitterness to speak of. Ends sweet and wet. I suspect they mailed this one in to please a certain Blue Moon-swilling demogaphic. Bidness!

patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2012
bottle - Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Lemon is clearly pleasant in the aroma along with some mild wheat. The flavor is sweet, citrusy and rather bland. Itís light bodied and refreshing in the summer, but offers little more to recommend it. Decent.

vipinvelp (2357) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2012
Somewhat hazy yellow with small/no foam head. Aroma is lemon, taste is a bit too sweet weizen with distinct lemon fravor. Not quite my style, sweet fresh lemon aftertaste (Houston 201208)

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Itís got a slightly metallic aroma to it. Pours a dark gold with a moderate head. Citrusy and floral taste, but not a particularly interesting beer.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle from Little Brothers. Nice orange body with medium head. Nose of grains, malts and lemon. Taste similar with malts, and grains but plenty of lemon. Kind of a summer beer. Not really my thing.

JPDurden24 (1621) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Orange and gold pour with a small white head. Earthy, grassy and some lemony flavors. Itís a decent wheat beer with a little lemony flavor.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Lots of lemon and wheat. Not bad, but Sam Adams has a lot better stuff.

lawman834 (229) - Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Already not my favorite style. Pours a hazy golden as expected. Aroma is grassy, with lemon zest and pretty prominent alcohol. Taste is quite underwhelming. Its thin and the finish has an unpleasant metallic/acidic texture. I am generally a fan of SA offerings, but this one falls way short.

July 4, 2012 bottle from MGM. Golden orange pour with some head. Aroma was lemon and grain/wheat. Taste was consistent with aroma, but had an unpleasant aftertaste. Thin bodied with little carbonation. I typically like wheat beers but this did not tickle my fancy.
