“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.”
