Harpoon Crystal Wheat

Filtered wheat beer in the 12 oz bottle as a single from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. $1.19.
The appearance is as expected with a decent head but little or no retention. Filtering means good clarity but somewhat lacking in character for me in its look.
Lemon is very strong for me. the label suggests a “hint” but to me it somewhat overwhelms the beer and it certainly does a number on the wheat aspect of the brew. For this reason i found the beer difficult to drink and wondered why they felt it necessary to drown the wheat, out.
Thirst quenching on a hot summer or spring day? Sure, but so are a billion and one other, better craft examples.
Not good for me.
