Poured from a 12oz. can into a Shock Top glass. The color is a hast yellow/orange with a finger or two foamy white head that stats for a short while but dissolves without a trace on the glass. The smell has some touches of coriander and lemongrass with a wheaty aroma that takes center stage. There is a light malt presence that contributes to the lightness of the nose and gives a small twang. The taste is Wheaty at first before giving up some of that smooth fruit flavor that slides into the margins of this beer bordering the outside edge and keeping things together as things slide into slight punchy end where the hops hide till the very end. This beer is light bodied and is really drinkable with its low ABV and easy drinking feel. The crisp feel adds to dry lip smacking wheat flavor and makes for a great summer drinker.

12oz in Boston. A little out of date but still tasty. Refreshing but still small town macro version of a light spiced wheaty ale. Not so cloying in flavors as it could have been. In the right conditions, this is fine.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is an unfiltered looking pale yellow-white with a fizzy white head. The aroma is delightfully refreshing with a dose of wheat, pale malts, and lemon citrus. The body is light and summery. The taste also has a pleasant and mellow wheat sensation and a light but tart bite of lemon citrus. Overall I could drink many of these on a hot day.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Pours a deep yellow with a long lasting white head. Nose is lemon and wheat. Palate is medium body with slight lemon and wheat. Bitterness is almost missing.

Bottle courtesy of AirForceHops. Lemon and wheat malt aroma. Slightly hazed straw gold with a small white head. Sweet wheat malt and light lemon flavor. LIght body, soft carbonation. I drank this after coming in from cleaning the chicken coop. Works as a lawnmower beer.

Pale light yellow appearance. no head. Pale lager and wheat scent. Hints of citrus. Lots of lemon and citurs, hints of honey in taste. Medium carbonation, light body.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2012
On tap at McCoy Stadium. Faintly spicy, wheaty aroma. Some lemon zest is all the bitterness this beer will offer. Soft malt character is main feature of this summer ale, which seems a light interpretation of domestic wheat ales. Very refreshing...not so memorable.

Not a bad beer. I like it on a hot summer day, very refreshing. However, when it comes to ratings, this beer just doesn’t make the mark. Palate is off, appearance is not that great.

matalec1984 (115) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2012
Pours a hazy light yellow with a light white head. Head doesn’t last long and has very little lacing. Aroma has a slight citrusy hint but is overwhelmed by the malty/wheat notes. Flavor is a little thin, hops fail to come through, and leaves the drinker with a fairly malty wheat ale. Light carbonation and easy to drink, but not a whole lot going on.
