out of a keg from the brewery for the 4th. This was a decent brew. Nothing too extremely exciting. A good wheat beer though. Some honey and lemon, banana, and some creamy yeasty flavors. great summer beer just not much imagination.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Beautiful hazy golden yellow in color. Aroma is muted, with some lemons, honey, banana and a touch of cloves. Hits the palate and is sweet and yeasty. Flavors revolve around lemon-banana smoothie qualities, and perhaps some KFC biscuits topped with honey. Good creamy palate with a hop interjection thatís a touch off on the backend.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper color with a beige head. Aroma of some caramel and burnt malt. Sweet caramel and malt flavor. Finish is a little sour and hoppy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet aroma of honey, light caramel, bright fruitiness, and floral hops. Slightly hazy golden color, decent white head. Sweet honey and light caramel flavor, just enough hop flavor and bitterness to provide balance. Medium body. A really nice summer beer, more going on than in a typical American wheat.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a foamy white head, big fruity,sweet aroma. Head lingers throughout. Firsy tastes are vinegar and weeds. A bad/old bottle(?). A much more pleasant malt taste follows, but itís hard to lose that bad lactobaccillus taste.. Pretty bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden amber with small white head. Aroma of citrus and toffee. Medium body with sweet finish. Flavor was full with citrus and wheat sweet. Good American Wheat.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fairly decent, pouring a cloudy amber body with a thin, fizzy white head. The aroma is bready malt along with a dash of honey sweetness and some lemony acidity. Itís got a toasty taste with a bit of spiciness. The finish is fairly clean and crisp. Good warm weather fare.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 12oz - Pours cloudy amber with a short white head. Aroma is of wheat bread and a hint of spice. Taste is caramel, apricots and some spice. I really thought that this was a Belgian Wit until I saw the style above. I believe that it has more of the characteristics of one. It is light and crisp on the palate and refreshing for after mowing the lawn.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2008 Lots of bready, toasted malts in the nose. The body is crisp and refreshing, hinting on dough, caramel, apricot and vanilla bean. The finish is drawn out, dry and fuity. Yet another good brew from Aracadia.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A solid orange color, under a fine, whitish head, with numerous micro, and some not so-micro-scopic "floaties" zipping about...yikes!
Aroma: odd. fruity, peach and nectarine, apricot, but it feels a touch plastic, rubbery...caramelly...reminds me of certain NW hops, but put to strange use...
something ill-fitting in this nose. Enough, letís taste...
That plastic/rubber thing I canít put my finger on is there again, in the taste...might be the yeast they use, but it dominates the texture of this brew.
Full-bodied, big -time fruit, mucho maltiness, not much from hops, an easy traveller over the esophagus...but lacks something...drinks easy, for sure, but misses ...I donít know...character? Thatís what Iíll call it...
not bad, actually, just needs some ZING! to make me, or anyone with taste, stand up and salute. As it is, it ainít happeniní...
