Short 12oz bottle. Pours hazy yellow, lots of floaties. Aroma of wheat malt, piss, and lemonade. Carbonation is nice, it has a light mouthfeel, must be an unique yeast strain. Taste is of simple wheat malt, some straw notes. Finishes like a lager. Crisp and refreshing, with a touch of lemon fruit, zero tartness. Perfect flavors for summer. I could do without the floaties tho. (3754)

Appearance: Pours a hazy pastel yellow with a white fluffy head that slowly subsides to a 1/8 cap.

Aroma: From a few feet away, you will immediately intake lemon zest. As I get closer, I get the classic wheat ale aromas such as bread dough, banana, but honestly, the lemon peel is the most dominate.

Taste: Lemon essence/zest, bready, low spicy hops. Finishes very quickly, leaving no aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Deceptively thin. Fizzy carbonation.

Overall: The lemon was in your face from an aroma standpoint. Dare I say this would be a good candidate for beginners, those who don’t really like beer, or girls.

Bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of candied citrus and wheat. The taste is tart citrus and mild wheat. Thin and watery, muddled and almost seems a bit dirty.

12oz bottle. Tickers gotta tick. Hazy unfiltered yellow-orange. Thin, creamy, white head. Mellow orange-banana-tea aroma. Medium bodied, very drinkable, just a touch of bitterness up front...easy yeasty finish. Not outright bad, but not really good either.

Ughsmash (7126) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottled. Poured pale golden with a short white head. The aroma picked up slightly-sweetened lemon juice and tart peel over soft biscuit and wheaty notes. The flavor found bitter lemon and odd dank notes throughout (perhaps from the yeast), with grainy wheat support.. more hop-like lemon and grassy bitterness on the finish. Light-bodied with a grainy/scratchy flow through the palate.. this just wasn’t very enjoyable.

bhensonb (10970) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white head. Lemon zest aroma. Flavor is pretty lemon with a little wheat following. Finish is papery/blah, tho the start was fruity.

Golden in color, light in the mouth. Like a shandy. Nice beer but there is a bit of an identity crisis. ---bhiner41 Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Samples at store. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is lemon and some wheat. Taste is dominated by the lemon but not overpowering. A light beer in flavor but somewhat refreshing.

Bottle; poured a dull gold color with a whitish head. Aroma of lemon and wheat. Ok aroma. Flavor was not great. A lot of lemon, but little else that was positive. Not what I am looking for.
