COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light refreshing wheat beer is sure to delight. Our special yeast and blend of malted and unmalted wheat provide the haze in our unfiltered style ale. This beer is traditionally served with a lemon slice on the side.

This wheat is certainly lacking flavor. For an unfiltered beer it was very clear and lacked any haze. This is definitely a summer time brew for many people I am sure, but it would not be for me.

Very mild grain aroma, pours light amber with a thin white head. I would expect a lot more haze for an unfiltered wheat beer. There’s some wheat flavor there, and a slightly bitter finish and a medium body. This wouldn’t be a terrible lawnmower beer, there’s just not much going on.

Draft at the Collegeville brewpub with a lemon wedge. Pours clear yellow with a bunch of fizz. The aroma is big lemon. The taste is grainy and bland.

Weak flavor and a bit skunky. Aroma is also skunky and grassy. Had on tap at Harrisburg.

60minuteman (698) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Aroma of corn, yeast, wheat, malt and hop. Flavor is roasted malt, metallic, nutty, earthy and corny. Good lager but it has that astringent metallic and alcoholic taste that gives me a headache. Idk what it is but Yuengling does the same thing.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a hazy golden colored body leaving no head, and some fizziness is heard when it was poured. Some light carbonation is seen rising. The smell was wheat and lemon up front. The taste was basically the same. The palate was about a light to medium in body, semi-carbonated and watery. Overall, though I got this in a year round variety pack, this seems more of a beer that would be better in the summer. Not bad, but nothing spectacular, and decent for the style.

Ehh. I think they missed the yeast / malt combination on this one. Pours yellow - orange with some light carbonation. Aroma is slight skunk with some lemongrass. Decent mouth feel, lively carbonation, finishes with a dry bite.

A cloudy amber color. Some orange/lemon flavoring but overall not a whole lot of flavor or body. A lighter tasting beer

snoworsummer (1947) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Draft at the brewpub in Gettysburg. Pours hazy pale gold with a thin white head. Tastes like cereal, malt, musk, and some lemon. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musk and lemon.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2013
Tap at Appalachian, Collegeville, 29/11/13. Hazed orange amber with a thin off white head that clears to edgeing. Nose is thin, faint bread dough, lemon rind, light grassy notes. Taste comprises light citrics, faint orange ring, grassy. Medium bodied, little in the way of carbonation - poor feel, sweet closure. Sub par nonsense devoid of flavour and body. And the stoopid lemon got dumped before I went anywhere near sipping from the glass, just remind me the last time I had a wheat based beer in either Belgium or Germany and someone stuck a fucking piece of lemon in it !?!?!?

A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Some Lacing S: Mild Wheat, Mild Lemon T: Wheat, Mild Lemon M: Decent Carbonation, Light Bodied, Mildly Tart, Watery Overall, a nice light and refreshing beer but the watery finish detracts the overall experience. They serve it with a lemon wedge too...rated without the lemon but actually tasted better with it sadly.
