3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2005 More body than expected, more malty than expected, definitely more hop presence than expected. More parrots on the bottle than expected. Fairly non-descript in appearance, but I found nothing else to complain about.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (lemon), lightly yeasty (sweat). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The acidity is partly the dull yeasty kind, but overall the balance is good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright straw color with a a tall white head. Mild fresh hop and fresh mowed grass aroma. Sweet pale malt flavor. Semi-sharp mild white pepper finish. Actually not bad for a American Wheat.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very light golden in color. Huge head initially that quickly faded but left some nice lacing. Smells very un-wheatlike, in fact it was hard to dicipher anything but the cascades they use as finishing hops. Not a good wheat beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear gold - obviously a filtered wheat. not much of the typical wheat flavor - must have been filtered out! This is more of a very light APA - but it does have some nice citrus and light hop flavor. Just a good thirst quencher.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear straw-golden color. Watery and smooth up front. Rich and dry in the finish. Very light and gentle. Some bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Clean, without any off-flavors to complain about, just a little underwhelming... unfortunate for such a great brewery!
