3.39/5

Pours a hazy, straw color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong wheat, slight pale malt, hint of citrus, earthiness, hint of yeast, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight metallic taste. Tastes of floral notes, strong wheat, hint of citrus, hint of yeast, hint of pale malt, and a hint of hops. Overall, average appearance, good complexity, metallic taste is distasteful, and the blend is quite weak.

3.72/5

This one pours a hazy, golden yellow color with a fluffy white head of foam. It has a nice crisp, cracked wheat aroma. It has some floral notes with sweet breads and a slight bitter tang.
