      Looks identical to Sierra Nevada Wheat. Yellow opaque. Thick white head. Spicy-yeasty aroma. Very chewy toasted malt character. Tastes like a wheat beer, but they say that's due to the "organic malt". Sweet. Refreshing. Their description: "Pale, hazy, vital, organic, unfiltered, fresh."

      Brown-amber opaque. Thick white head. Toasted malt aroma...no hops. Thick but not lingering. Underhopped for style. Very similar to their Pale Ale but a bit darker.
