Bottle. I think this has been dwelling in my fridge way past its ideal drink-by date. So, thereís that. Smell is overly sweet malts, cooked veg, and really sweet fruit. Pretty looking, though with a nice clear dark golden color and decent white head. Taste is out of kilter. Too sweet then a sharp bang of hops. Light hop finish. If I ever run across this fresher, Iíll give it another go

Refreshing wheat ale. Some mild, grassy characteristics. The aroma of the beer gave me a great first impression of the beer, but it was lacking with flavor in my opinon. Overall, a refreshing mediocre wheat ale.

An excellent wheat ale very drinkable just what I expect from a wheat beer. Pours a nice hazy creamy color. Would recommend.

12oz from refrigerated bottle into a shaker pint. Moderate pours a pleasant one-finger white head with moderate retention and decent lacing. Golden and clear with moderate carbonation. Nose is fairly weak. Wheaty. Moderate body. Appropriate for style. Taste is very straight forward. Moderate bitterness with a wheat and malty taste. Not too much going on, but an alright hot-day beer, Iíd say.

Clear, golden pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has wheat and some mild, grassy hops. It has a light body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is slightly sweet with a dry finish.

Bottle. Aroma of malted wheat, and some citrus. Pours pale straw yellow with a thin white head. A hint of grassy hops on the palate. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Smooth and quite drinkable, though nothing special.

Not a lot going on. I feel like this is barely more than a blonde ale. A hint of spice and a little wheat. Quite refreshing, which is itís redeeming factor.

Itís always oddly rewarding to drink refreshing wheat ales in the cold months, so I couldnít resist the urge to crack into trout slayer. I must say, in more appropriate weather, Trout Slayer might be a god send. Itís an approachable thirst quencher with a fair amount of hop character. I liked the pale yellow color, the spicy aroma, and the somewhat creamy mouthfeel. In all though, I wished Trout Slayer was headier and more flavorful. Still, this is a sweet, smooth wheat ale. Though it did not slay my trout, it certainly gave it a nice tickle. That has to be the weirdest euphemism Iíve ever given on this site.
