COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing brew made in the American wheat beer style with wheat and pilsner malts blending perfectly in this light, creamy ale. The malted wheat gives this beer a surprising complexity, while imported European hops give it a pleasing finish. The wheat is a stand-alone beer, or have a pint with our Turkey Sandwich.

maekchu (1982) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2013
Draught at Alameda Brewing Co. Slight lemony nose and a bit of candy. Light minerally sweet initial / moves into moderate bitterness / very mild bitterness in final. Hazy medium straw color. Thin body. Okay, No standout flavors. A bit too light.

stantheman (628) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2013
On tap at Malone’s Urban Drinkery in Vancouver. An amber orange color with a moderate whitish head. Very bitter for a pale or wheat ale! Hops predominate heavily, with the faintest malt trace. It’s balanced, but an uneasy balance it seems.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2013
Draught at Malone’s Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Pale blond color, hazy. Some aroma of wheat, stale bread, cereals, pond water, but also some fresh (very light) fruitiness. Light body, with mild but not bad bread flavor; it has a very light fruity touch from the yeast (peachy), and relatively low bitterness.
Easy, but quite delicate and not bad at all.

Hazy gold. White smear. Medium body. Mild carbonation. A little citrus with the wheat for flavor. Finishes citric and bitter.

boFNjackson (4118) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Tap... Poured nearly clear golden/orange with no head. A pretty bellow average American wheat. Too tangy and too much of a corn chip character. Other citrus notes with yeasty flavors too. Very unbalanced.

anders37 (16460) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Has a sweetish wheat malty aroma with some hints of citrus. Sweetish wheat malty grainy flavor with some hints of citrus. Has a fruity what malty citrus finish.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Very bland american wheat, watery on the palate, not much crispness to it at all. Light gold in color with a thin white head. A touch citrusy in the finish, very mild on the wheat, more so then Widmers. The lemon if added would just take over the whole flavor cause there was just nothing to this.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Pint at Alameda Brewing in Portland, OR--Poured a thick dark hazy golden bronzed body with a mild white head. Why are American Hefes always served with lemons? This beer was very reminiscent of Widmer and Pyramid. Mildly lemony. Tart, grassy, wheaty and somewhat yeasty. Dull chewy body though very drinkable. Some graininess but overall blah! Move on.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. An unclear orangey beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of lemon and wheat. The flavor is sweet wheaty combined with notes of lemon, leading to a dry wheaty and bitter finish.
