Bottle. Hazt golden pour. Tall, fluffy and sticky white head. Aroma is big lemon, wheat and yeast notes, with some grains and spice. Taste is big lemon, tart fruits, wheat, strong yeast notes and softer peppery spice. Body is light and extremely bubbly. Almost feel over-carbonated at times. Lots of belching with this one. Ends with more wheat, tart fruit, lemon juice, yeast notes and flowery hops. Light spice towards the back-end as well.

Sampled for free by a distributor rep at El Bait Shop! Whoot for the free tick!
Pours a very hazy yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is doughy and yeasty with a weird tire aroma. The flavor has a light lemon zing with plenty of breadiness and a nice spicy clove flavor. This beer is light and refreshing and wholly un offensive.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow orange with a generous white head. Smells of stale wheat and candy lemon. Tastes like a funky wheat with alot of lemon citrus. Semi sweet and semi sour finish that quickly gets dry. Not bad.

Bottle from Canals. I never knew this existed but apparently this will be replacing Sams Hefeweizen.
Hazy golden pour with hints of wheat and lemon in the aroma. Noble hop taste with a crisp wheat finish. This was a refreshing beer on a hot day.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was expecting more lemons from the description on the bottle, but just a hint, more like a refreshing summer beer, kinda odd it came out this time of year, instead of spring time. Nice wheat character, Amber orange hue, head didnít last long....but neither did the beer, another fine beer from a fine brewery. hmmmm.....not even on Sam Adams site yet.
