Refrigerated 12 oz. squat brown bottle, from slowrunner77, poured into a weizenbock glass. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is light grain, light body, medium/light carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is light grain. No reason to have this again, just not much there.

CacheManyHose (538) - HONG KONG - MAR 5, 2015
Clear copper-straw with fizzy white head and watery legs. Smells of faint malt, cereal grains, a bit corn-y like certain pale ales. Taste is even more faint, similar malt with light citrus/lemon. Body is light-to-medium, less carbonation than expected, finish is slightly more sharp and bitter. Overall not bad but rather boring (even though Sierra Nevada explicitly states it was aiming to make its lightest beer yet).

HKdIPA (617) - HONG KONG - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle from Citysuper. Slightly hoppy Pilsner aroma - just slightly more interesting than standard Pilsner. Taste is pleasantly bubbly crisp and bitter. Pilsner-like crisp sharp finish. Drinkable. Not bad.

SlimHabib (399) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle pour. Clear golden with lots of carbonation and a large soapy white head. Aroma is wheat, grains, and coriander. Light body. Wheat, hay, and very light hops. Not too much going on, but very easy to drink.

slowrunner77 (9217) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"some of the classic nose you expect from a wheat beer, but hoppier. in other styles i ilike hoppier, but this one doesn’t quite work. still too light and boring for my taste. 1/10-reaffirmed as their most boring and passable beer. why bother?"

355 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear golden colour with no yeast sediments; Razor-thin head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Very small sticky lacing and barely notable carbonation; Fragrant aroma of light Ale malt, with pretty sharp citrus, orange, light floral, light cinnamon, honey, light pepper, spices and hop cones; Close to medium sweet taste of light Ale malt, with light wheaty tartness, citrus zest, molasses notes, pine, light spices, lime, lemon, quite strong bitter hops and light sharp grass; Close to light body, crisp and hoppy palate; Mouth feel is pretty solid light maltyness, wheaty presence is very notable with light tartness. Absence of yeast is filled up by strong spicys hops with sharp citrus, quite piney and spicy characters. Lots of hop cone taste with moderate bitterness for a lasting but light astringent finish; Quite dry after taste. Very hoppy and light bitter to mouth.

Comments: Not your usual estery and phenolic Wheat Ale, this one replace all these chemical chcarcters with very coney and spicy floral hoppiness. Quite expressive and at times tasted like a Premium Lager with wheaty element remain intact. A pretty good one and perfect for Summer!
