9/12- Very delicious tasting beer with notes of citrus, but not too heavy like blue moon. Could be just a smidge stronger tasting, but you can't expect too much from a wheat beer. 7/13- mildly sweet aroma with a slight hint of citrus. Light golden color. Very refreshing and crisp beer. Obviously not bitter at all but not overly sweet and citrusy like blue moon. Mild amount of flavor, but this is typical of a wheat and may actually be a good thing so that the citrus is not over powering. 8/13- might be the lightest colored beer I have ever seen besides hoegarden, very clear light yellow color with little head retention, mild aroma of sweetness fruit/ sweet smell is fairly obvious, strong in a flavor that hits you right away, not as fruity as the smell but is definitely there (too much? Maybe just a tinge), stronger in flavor than agave. Takes the cake despite being maybe slightly overly flavored artificially profile - July 18, 2012

15JUL12, Flying Saucer, Nashville, TN Very light wheat and fruit aroma. Flavor is kinda deep for a wheat beer, as there are some fruit tones that mix well together with the wheat. Light on the palate, just not super-complex. Would probably be very drinkable at a bar-b-que or crab feast. profile - May 23, 2012
One of my favorite beers. Excellent summer beer.
