Bottle thanks to 5000. Pours a translucent gold with a white head of foam. Aroma is sweet bread with some odd vanilla. Tastes bready with just a faint grassy hop persona. Light on the palate.

I had this at Global Brew. I thought this was so so. I expected a wheatier taste but it wasn't there. I could drink this again.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/7/2013. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, pepper, orange zest, wheat, clove, bread, floral, grass, herbal, and light banana. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance of malt and hop notes. Taste of lemon, pear, pepper, orange peel, wheat, clove, floral, grass, bread, herbal, and light banana. Lingering notes of citrus, light fruit, pepper, wheat, clove, floral, grass, herbal, and light banana on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance of citrus, malt, and spicy hop flavors; with a good amount of robustness for 5%; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale what ale! Very nice balance of citrus, malt, and hop flavors; and extremely smooth to drink with plenty of flavor. Really enjoyed this one.

Pours clear gold with a small thin whit head. Medium carbonation in this one. light grain aroma. Smooth crisp taste on the first drink. Would be nice to know which grains where used but USA Brewers seem to just focus on the hops. Not sure how an ale yeast strain can ferment well at cool termps to somehow make the beer smoother. Bland finish.

Draught at Rodeo Steakhouse in Roseburg, OR. Fruity, estery, yeasty aroma. Clear bright yellow (served in a mason jar!). Light fruity initial / some yeasty punch in mid palate / tiny bitter finish. Thin-medium body. Kind of weak, uninteresting, and a bit too estery. I wouldn’t guess that this is a wheat ale.
