Harpoon's wheat beer is named UFO for unfiltered wheat offering. The beer pours a hazy, yellow color with a foamy white head. The nose gives off lots of wheat and it becomes more apparent on the first sip. The beer is smooth, it transitions well throughout and has a nice mouth feel. The best part is the wheat on the first taste. The body is fairly light and at 4.8% it could be used as a session beer. It left a nice spotted lace on the glass as I finished it. I can't help but think that this beer could be much better, but it is a good introductory beer for those who are looking to try out wheat beers.
