3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Cloudy golden color with no head, surprising in a wheat beer. Wheat and yeast flavors are only moderate, slight fruit, surprisingly hoppy bitter bite, which I really like. Not a very wheaty wheat beer, not a great beer over all, but pleasant enough. // Rerated from a mini-keg. Much better head, much better appearance than the bottle. Much more intense wheat and lemon citrus. Better mouth as well. Significantly better overall.

I'm not a fan of wheat beers but this one is OK for my taste. Wheat is not overstated as some. Very nice hops bite. Pleasant aftertaste. Beautiful light straw color. Will buy again

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Highly spicy, yet mild, lighter summer beer. A large amount of sludge in the bottom of bottle that made the beer in my glass goopy. Nicely balanced with no bitterness - instead a touch of sourness that compliments the honey flavor. A good beer, but it's hard to believe that Kalamazoo would make something this quiet.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2005 really tasty beer--very wheaty, and almost cidery and citrusy. no head at all, and a tiny bit of lacing on the side of the glass.
after countless bottles, iím compelled to re-rate, simply because i canít agree with the the 3.9 i originally gave. itís refreshing and light, but still a prototypical american wheat. outside of summer i donít want to drink it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours thick for a summer ale, with no head and a murky blonde appearance with lots of large floaties. The bottom of the bottle is coated with a thick layer of white sediment. Smells very citrusy and mildly sweet. Mouthfeel is unusually thick and slightly creamy - flavor is slightly tangy, with a big citrus flavor and a nice malt presence for a summer beer - the finish is slightly bitter and hoppy, but mellows to a mild sweetness in the long term - aside from the appearance, this is probably the best wheat beer I've had yet.

By far one of the best summer ale's out there. Foggy appearance but it has a great taste. The bottle is pretty cool, too.
