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!

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

OK SA, a solid summer brew! lemon flavor and aroma. Balanced of citrus tartness and sweetness with a little spicy hops. Clean, crisp and refreshing.

Drank from a 12oz. bottle. Not very impressed by this one. Aroma is kind of bland while the color is okay. Has a very carbonated taste with a limony aftertaste

Drank from a 12 oz bottle. I didn't dig the aftertaste and the beginning of the taste was a little sweet for me. Not really into wheat beers either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
