2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft in Gettysburg a few months ago. Gold in color, aroma was of wheat, grain and a light banana. Flavor was below average for the style, as was the beer in general. Easy drinking but lacking in great flavor.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle. "mellow gold" hue (beck). typical head for a hefe. unfortunately, i found more of a grain-dominating aroma than anything else, and airy at best. as far as the flavor is concerned...until the finish i wasnít sure if it was a hefe or not. that is where the citrus and creamy banana made itself readily available. it scares me that american hefeís are coming to this. for the sake of conversation, iíll pretend this beer was just mis-categorized. itís not a hefe, but itís rated as such..

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Plain jane golden orange, little to no carbonation and just a barest thin foam head. The aroma is musty, almost moldy, with a bit of breadiness, too. The breadiness, thankfully, is what carries in the flavor, with a shadow of yeastiness. Despite the flat appearance, the mouthfeel is fairly nice. (#3016, 7/12/2007)

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from ABC in Harrisburg. The title says it all WATER GAP with some wheat. The aroma has some fruit, grains and sweetness and Iím trying hard to locate the flavors. I like the aroma better than the sip of water which has some wheat, citrus and malt flavors in it but all of it way too minute. This should be categorized as Wheat Lite.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a golden color with a good head that sticks around for a while. There is a nice earthy smell to it and some hints of malt. As you sip on it there is some flavors of mild fruits mainly aprocots and other earthy flavors. there is also a nice appealing flavor that is left on the palate.
