This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a typically carbonated body transparent weak yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was hoppy and lemony with a crisp citrus hop aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of lemon, citrus, and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 6/13/2017. Pours slightly hazy medium golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lightly tart lemon juice, lime zest, grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, lemons, and moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart lemon juice, lime zest, grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lightly tart lemon juice, lime zest, grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops, lemons, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance. Slight hop/fruit astringency through the glass, but not overwhelming. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a very nice American pale wheat ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops, lemons, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink; despite the increasingly bitter/drying finish. Very similar to the base beer, with more vibrant lemony/rindy citrus notes; and a little more bitter/drying from the fruit. Very flavorful for the low ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

tillmac62 (759) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2017
BOD 3/17/17. Pours a clear golden amber. Outstanding head volume, quite outstanding retention and good lacing. Good, but light, nose that is mostly lemon and hints of grainy wheat. Zest and the lemon itself are expressed. Underneath is a subtle light sweetness. The body is deceptively light in texture yet provides a rich slick oiliness. The finish actually is oily even when the effervescence is at it’s maximum. The carbonation / body balance is world class. The middle explodes with effervescence that ebbs slightly then delivers a rollicking finely bubbled finish. The flavor profile is outstanding and falls just short of quite outstanding. Balance is world class. Intensity is outstanding but complexity is only very good. This is a lemon focused wheat ale that has moderate bitterness which is expertly balanced between hops and zest. Towards the end, wheat exerts itself with a nice cracker aspect plus a light nut influence. The middle has just enough sweetness to notice but not enough to fully contrast the lemon. The finish is slightly tart and oily. Notes of lemon and grain linger.

I had it on tap. It pours golden with a white head and lacing. The aroma is lemon and grain. The taste is lemon, bread, and herbal. It’s refreshing. This is a nice beer on a hot day.
