I got this bottle in a trade with jwc215. Thanks Joe!

This pours a clear gold with a 2 finger head of foam and some lacing. Great head retention.

The smell is very nice. A good presence of lemony citrus hops and about an equal amount of malt hits my nosebuds. If the taste is anything like the smell, this could be good...

The taste follows the nose alright. A very tasty lemon hoppy flavour balanced by an ample malty sweetness and some wheat notes. Man, I could drink a lot of this one. It's so tasty and so smooth. Very good mouthfeel here and the carbonation is actually on the light side and that works perfectly. The finish has a nice lemon bitter subtleness to it. I like!

A great drinking experience and a real authentic session brew. I'm so pleased I got to try this; I don't think I've had a better example of style. Southern Tier has done it again!

A light unobtrusive summery wheat ale that strikes a balance between grainy cereal flavors and mild citrus. A little tart, a little sweet, and a lot quenching. Pours a drab cloudy yellow with only a nip of head. A tight bubbled carbonation keeps things airy.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy honey gold color topped by a large rocky white head. Fragrant sweet citrus malt nose. Tart citrus malt flavor. Notes of wheat, lemon, white bread, yeast and grassy hops. Light and refreshing.

HourGlass13 (1074) - North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2017
Pours up a straw hue with a fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is lime, grassy, grapefruit, slight cereal. Refreshing medium body and sharp carbonation. Taste is a little sweet, with a bitter following that lingers through the finish.

matty (448) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a brief white head. Aroma is mostly wheat, a little hoppy and tart. Medium-light body, taste is kind of plain, a little bit of hop flavor, some citrus comes through and just a touch of tartness at the end. Overall, not bad.

2.4
Nickls (2609) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle. Hazy light gold. Some dusty faded citrus hops and light wheat in aroma and flavor. Bleh, is this old?! Dusty, candy, some citrus hops. Lighter medium chalky body.
