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.

Big creamy looking head atop golden body. Small champagne bubbles running up through the brew. Very slight smell to it: bit of sourness. Smooth, yeasty flavor (though this is a filtered wheat) very slight tartness. Kind of bland. Not a whole lot of flavor or smell. Bottles may have been sitting for a while (i only got them because there was a mixed sixer, 2 grasshopper, 4 warthogale, for only 2.99. couldn’t pass that up.)

I like some wheat beers. This was a little too bitter and not full of enough flavor for my liking. Didn’t even go really well with a good bread I have. Fairly light though.

The pub that I had this at served it to me with a lemon in it. Had a rancid, almost vomit like aroma to it. Not a great quality. Really bland which got worse as it warmed. Nothing at all good about this one.

Fairly light beer overall - aroma, palate and taste. Leans towards the malty side of tate. Crisp. Would like to see some bigger wheat flavors. Nice quality beer, but lacking in overall effectiveness due to its light profile.

Smells malty. Deep amber, slight head. Sweet taste, where is the wheat? Sticky sweetness. Average.

Excellent for an easy drinking, all day sort of beer. Quite good, but there are better wheats out there. Give the Paulaner a shot!

An ok beer. Definitly better with a slice of lemon. Which means to me its not the greatest on its own. But good enough to buy a case of every once and a while.
