With a deep gold color, slight cloudiness and fl uffy white foam, this American ale seems just as attractive in appearance as its Bavarian Weissbier cousins. However, the nose is wholly different from the spicy, clove-like character of a German wheat beer. This American version offers tinges of minerals and citrus with mild banana and hop nuances, while the flavor profi le focuses on wheat malt and gentle, citrusy hops. The tongue also picks up notes of minerals, lemons and cereal grains – all backed by a pleasant hop tease. Light-bodied and not astringent, this wheat beer offers a moderately dry finish and drinkable personality that's a bit understated but clean and approachable.
