Bottled. Tasted sort of like a weak saison more so than a wheat. Poured gold etc. Ok.

Clear golden with visibible carbonation and thin white head. No aroma. Very light, hint of lemon and grainy. Carbonation provides a bit of bite on the tongue.

Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Light wheat and lemon aromas. Crisp wheat upfront with lemon, marshmallow and yeast in the dry finish. Very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The look is quite see-through, a bright sunny yellow. It does look like a regular macro pale lager, but much brighter. Head is short-lived. It looks like a brighter-than-normal wheat beer.
The smell is a slight wheaty aroma, but with almost a bitter malt to it as well. The smell is actually very slight. There is a slight twist of lemon, and some orange. Sweet, light, flowery.
Wheat taste comes in with a strong fruit (orange peel) flavor. Sharp wheat punch. The fruit is really merely an accent to the typical wheat taste.
Feels a bit dry, but also refreshing. The wheat comes through not only in the flavor, but also as a dry feel. Not ashy as I had worried. Itís not got a lot of character, but itís quite drinkable. Sweet, summery, dry, wheaty.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Clear, pale amber color. Nose is light lemon. Flavor is light sweet lemon and yeast. Good session ale. $1.85 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

Tap at Rattle n Hum. Available through Mid-September? Well, I had it tonight at RnH. Hmm...Maybe if it were 5 to 6 months earlier I would have enjoyed this beer more. As it was, I enjoyed it a little it. Not an offensive beer by any means, just nothing to write home about. Not crisp and refreshing like I want a wheat ale. More like a pale ale. Perhaps it lost its bite before I could get to it...will this mystery ever be resolved?...

Very pale, slightly cloudy yellow. Simple wheat and lemon flavor. Not bad flavor but really, really thin.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Cloudy yellow golden pour with a medium white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat and lemongrass. Nice sweet taste with a thin mouthfeel. Not terrible but fairly simple with no depth or complexity.
