Let me say this up front: This is not a bad beer, but I really had to warm up to it in order to understand it better. This wheat ale is a bit of a conundrum for me: It has less head than I expected and not as much cloudiness as I expected; in fact, it’s hardly cloudy at all. However, the gold color is quite attractive, and it has some decent carbonation and a nice grassy smell to it.

On my initial taste I was a little disappointed. I thought I’d really dig this beer, but it was leaving me a bit flat. The taste was all on the front end, and I wasn’t getting much of anything out of it. A few sips in, I got into the creamy smoothness of the flavor and the malty feel it left on my tongue that left me with the sense of satisfaction I get from drinking a decent microbrew.
