A sweet wheat beer with a lemon finish. Very likable in the summer sun, with friends, at work, under the table...

Filtered wheat beers are so creepy. Great head though. Great aroma - sweet, wheaty, some lemon. Flavour was not so impressive, even for an american wheat. Surprisingly bitter, which isn’t necessarily bad. But it was also watery, which is bad. Too carbonated.

Not bad, but nothing special. Kind of bland, in my opinion, but the packaging is great. Probably good in the heat.

Why do I continue to buy filtered wheat beers? Crystal clear, yellow. Clean malt aroma with a touch of pepper spice. Mild palate, clean and sweet with an unconvincing finish. Refreshing ...

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2013 Can. Clear bright gold with a finger of snow white head. Simple but pleasant aroma with notes of toasted wheat, light honey, faint hint of cut grass. Thin and crisp body, cuts thirst nicely. Flavour follows the aroma - simple but clean, mild honey-on-toast sweetness to start, hint of banana, light lemon balm and suggestion of lime cordial in the finish. Certainly not a beer snob beer, but for a simple refresher, you could do a lot worse.
ORIGINAL RATING (September 23, 2002): Not a great beer by any means, but it’s a good thirst quencher. One for those warm summer days on the patio. Just don’t forget the lemon wedge. [6/3/5/3/11 = 2.8]

What "light" beer should be. Full alcohol but you can drink a lot and enjoy it. Great for passing the time and not thinking too much about the beverage.

The wheat lightens the body somehwat and allows you to "feel" the hops a little more, but overall this is but a step above the macros, brewed for drinkability. Ther is a nice finish to this beer which does make it more refreshing.

I’ve often wondered, when it comes to so-called american wheats why they even bother putting wheat in the name. They usually taste like Rogue’s Buckwheat Ale - ie. not a hint of wheat in sight. This product from Big Rock is little different. It’s a clear, bland ale-like brew.

not very wheaty really. maybe a little tartness, that’s it. more like a lager. not very impressive, but I’d drink it on a hot day.
