What the brewers say

“An easy-drinking American-style wheat. It’s light, crisp, and refreshing.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A nice hoppy nose up front shifts into an impression of herbal soap. It flip-flops between resinous and piney, then funky and floral, and it’s also fairly fruity. Underneath, it’s got some bready dark malt, toast, and caramel and some light spicy phenolics with a slight note of honey.”

Flavor: “The piney, grassy, citrusy hops flavor hits up front and sticks through the finish. Next up is a light lemony tartness that fades to a mild citrusy bitterness. A subtle caramel malt flavor, as well as some bready malt, and the mouthfeel is dry, light, and watery. Some faint soapiness and moderate acidity, but overall, there is not a lot going on.”

Overall: “While this beer is very easy to drink, it’s almost too light to be very enjoyable. When the beer warms, some nice hops flavors emerge, and the lemony background adds some interest. Additional bready notes and body would add a lot to this beer, but that said, it does have some enjoyable wheat flavors in it.”
