Bottle, shared at the lake. Looks pretty clear and golden in my red Solo cup. Aroma is of grassy hops and biscuity malts. Flavours of clean pale malts, grass, celery. Quite hoppy actually-- nicer than I expected, although more of a golden ale than a true wheat beer.

A new brewery at GTMW 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin. Sampled on draught and pours a semi-clear golden straw colored brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates to a thin white ring and film top. Aroma of golden grain malt, floral hops and a hint of citrus. Taste is light to medium bodied, flavors of golden gain malt with wheat, floral hops and a touch of vegetable. Finish is light, crisp with a short lived and light bitterness.

650 ml bottle picked up at Lau-Nae Winery in Red Bud. Hazy, almost clear, golden with a quick to fade white head. An aroma of honey and wheat. Flavor is not really hefeweizen like. Beginning is hops that might include Saaz. Malt is light, grain is too. Wheat adds crispness but is not prominent here. A bit of vegetables, soft fruit (but not enough). A dry bitterness permeates. As a wheat beer this had few of the usual wheat flavors. No orange peel, no cloves, no banana, etc. I happen to like those flavors and was disappointed by the decisions that went into this beer.

22oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a clear gold body with a smaller bright white frothy head. Aroma is basically all vegetables, some notes of wet bread and a hint of skunk. The body has harsh carbonation, a medium mouthfeel and luckily for me a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is more like skunk flavored bread than vegetables but still not desired unless you like skunk bread. Is this really the same brewery that made that damn good India Brown Ale???

ben4321 (4062) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/10/12

Aroma: It has a nose of fresh cut grass, bread/yeast, wheat, and some grains
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear yellow-straw color with a small white head and light lace
Flavor: The taste has some light pale malts, light sweetness, bread, and a light grassy hop
Palate: The carbonation dominates the palate up-front, is way too strong here, and completely overpowers the fairly light body. Despite that, it finishes with a nice crispness in the mouth, which I would have liked to reward, but that crispness ultimately could not overcome the carbonation to get the palate above a 2.
Overall Impression: Decent ale, I get where they were going with it drinking like a Kolsch, I really do. For me, the nose is best component, and it kind of went down hill from there. Overall, it fine, but it is somewhat flawed, particularly that carbonation. It isn’t far off from being solid.

Very grainy in aroma. The flavor is very much like the description of being similar to a Kolsch, although a bit more grainy and hoppy. Not a flavor blast, but solid in flavor and easy to drink.

From 650 ml bottle shipped to me by Strykzone. Thanks. This poured a hazy gold, with a simply huge white head that filled my hefe glass from top to bottom, and refused to go away. II is rare to see this much head retention in any beer. This was served at my 50 degree cellar temperature which might explain all the foam. The nose is wheat and light caramel malt. Medium body and a highly carbonated mouthfeel. The flavor is mild for a hefe with not much going on. However forgetting the style and simply enjoying it as a lighter beer, it is easy to drink and quite refreshing.

22oz bottle 8/17/11 (Binny’s Plainfield)-Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head which has an aroma of wheat a bit of hops. Taste of the same with a bit of citrus and grass. This light bodied brew is a great mowing beer. Nice job.

thegreenrooster (3261) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Pour is a hazy blonde with a large white head. Aroma is slightly wheaty with not much else. Flavor is also just kinda wheaty and overall kinda watery. Typical boring American wheat ale.

This is a nice pale colored, cloudy brew that leaves behind an enormous amount of lace after each sip. Grassy and herbal hops are the focal point above a mild wheaty malt character. Full bodied but dry enough to feel light on the palate. Carbonation is mild, adding just a bit of zip to this easy drinking beer. Finishes w/ an earthy hop bitterness to keep things interested. I wish this came in six packs so I could drink all six of them.
