General Impression: 3 out of 20
Freshness: seems a bit Stale
Personal Taste: Disliked very much.
Notes: There’s no ‘there’ there. It’s the first unfiltered beer that had no haze. It’s the first wheat beer that had no wheaty body. Poorly crafted, badly balanced, and just downright watery. Very much like a light beer, but I’m still consuming the extra 50 calories.
