3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
super pale (yet well hazed) straw pour with active carb and quick reducing head, no lacing. despite lack of intensity in appearance, first aroma element is yeast then dry gueze like sourness, candy sweetness turned on its head. flavor follows on that same note then ends with the most pronounced wheat flavor ive ever experienced, a breadiness unlike the toast found at times in barley malt bills, this is a cool breeze of a midwestern farmers field. ultra refreshing even amongst a style reknowned for that effect, this beer is a true surprise

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 [Bottle] Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma has a lot of wheat, mustiness, notes of honey, and very faint pepper when I swirl it. Taste is slightly sour up front, but in a strange way--sort of reminds me of water served with a slice of lemon, this is followed by a lot of wheat. Fairly thin, finish length is somewhat short. Overall, an odd beer that isn’t awful, but not something that I would want to drink real often.
Re-rate: Wow, a few months on this, and it is really solid now. Has really soured nicely, and is a real joy to drink now. Bumping it up 0.5.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear, pale yellow pour with white head. The nose is a mixture of wheat, grass, and sour lemon. The light body begins with a puckering sourness, but surprisingly finishes clean. Though this beer isn’t great, it is interesting and worth the try.

++++ RE-RATE 26-January-2011 ++++
12 oz bottle given to me by beastiefan2k, who gave me the bottle with the understanding I would re-rate, so here goes. Batch 9934 which means it was packaged on September 20th, 2010 - making it around 4 months past packaging at time of tasting. Pour is an ever so lightly hazed yellow golden with a fluffy one inch white head that falls slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is soft tasrt lemon, along with a soft wheat earthiness. The aroma is clean and bright. Taste is the softly tart lemon citrus of the nose, blended nicely with the the wheat - this time showing more mineral than earthy. Clean, bright, I really enjoy the subtle citrus bite - really bright and thirst quenching beer. The palate is light to medium bodied, nice active carbonation, and a dry clean brightly tart finish. As it warms, a bit of butter shows up. First time around, I thought this was a pretty run of the mill wheat beer - this time, a really nice quaff-able slightly tart beer. Nice one, thanks Eugene for having me retry this. (8,4,7,4,15 - 3.8)
++++ ORIGINAL RATING 12-September-2010 ++++
4 oz pour at the Flying Saucer beer festival in Kansas City. Pour is a cloudy yellow lighter golden with a loose white head. Aroma is faint, what is there is grainy wheat and only a whisper of lemon peel. Taste is the nose, fairly straight forward grain wheat and very mild sourness. Palate is lighter bodied, nice carbonation, crisp clean finish. Nice enough. (6,3,7,3,13 - 3.2)
