Tap. Yellow pour with white head and a lot of lacing. Almost a wine smell to it. Very fruity flavor with a smooth finish. Easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle
A so-so wit beer shows glimmers of promise amidst mostly mundane sips. A bright sparkly presence could have been redeemed with a little tweaking. It is likely that I will be passing on 3 Sheeps for the time being with so many other choices on trips through the state.

Aroma / Appearance - Lively carbonation overstays its welcome as it brightens the glass with a fresh crisp white head. Lemon crisp, wheat, and custard thin out after a few minutes of sitting on the table. The hints of delicate yeast muster up brief sparks of better experiences.

Flavor / Palate - Dry lemons and buttery toast briefly spark the tip of the tongue. The bubbly carbonation then scrubs the palate clean in the course of a few seconds. It eventually falls squarely in the middle of the pack with the other forgettable witbiers. If you’re looking for a new tick grab a bottle. Otherwise check out many other better offerings in the Wisconsin area.

AWISLguy (1810) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Straw colored pour. Light earth and lemon in the nose. Some earth, some yeast, some light fruit comes through in the taste. Light to medium bodied. Finishes lightly sweet. Shrug? Bought this for a missing Sheeps tick. Not my favorite style, and not a very good representative either. Still expecting more from what has been a solid brewery.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2015
[Tap] Hazy straw colored pour. Quickly receding soapy head. Sweet wheat malt, coriander and grassy notes in the aroma. Flavors are sweet and grainy, with wheat coming through. Not a ton else going on here. Rather thin. Simple overall. Tasting notes from Big Blue Craft Beer Festival in Sheboygan on 10/18/14.

Bottle poured a cloudy gold with a lasting creamy whte head. Aromas of wheat, yeast and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of wheat, yeast and citrus with a smooth finish.

rumproasts (4182) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
bottle. Hazy pale golden with one finger head. Bland wheat beer, lightly sweet. Virtually no wit spicing. Very underwhelming.

Mittenator (1609) - Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2014

sawbuck (447) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Some faint aroma of orange citrus, mixed in with some sweet wheat and bread. Deep yellow in color, ultra whitehead..thin. Sweet wheat malt up front. Some notes of lemon/orange and some spices. Finishes with some sweetness, and some peppery spices and some bitterness. Would characterize as more of an american wheat due to a slightly more bitter finish than typical beligian white....works.

Draft. From notes. Medium sweet with baking spices, Belgian yeast and candi sugar. Pretty good.

On tap at Milwaukee Brew Fest 2013. Pour is golden yellow with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is grainy and sweet - tangy orange, cloves, wheat. Flavor is similar with a residual wheat finish.
