3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rating #1026 - March 17, 2014 - #stpatricksday beer samples on my first day on the job. Was expecting a mildly hoppy american style wheat beer. Hazy golden pour, decent white head. Aroma is lots of lemony-orangey oily hop notes. Palate is not dominated by any one characteristic, impeccable balance of sweet fruits and mild bitterness. Mild yeasty kick up front and in the finish. Solid wheat ale.

bottle. A bit hazy, golden with small head. An averageish wheat beer. Hard to get excited about this.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from a random liquor store near the Grand Canyon, 3/6/14
Aroma: The nose is grains and wheat, some citrus, mild spice, and some herbal notes
Appearance: It pours a gold-orange color with a frothy off-white head on it
Flavor: The taste is light malty and wheaty sweetness, mild lemon, light herbal and spice hop notes
Palate: The body is light-medium, a bit thin, with a slightly fizzy feel
I wasn’t all that impressed. This beers a little dull and just not that intriguing to drink.

Pours a straw yellow with two fingers of head. Aroma is yeasty and cooked corn. Flavor follows. Some sweetness and also a tinny metallic flavor. Light bodied. Drinkable session beer.

Nice golden color. Little bit of hoppy bite. Would make a good session beer. Kind of above average wheat beer. Nothing amazing, but I’d drink this again.

Drinking straight from the bottle so can’t really comment on appearance but taste is good. Good hoppy bite and just a touch of bitter aftertaste but not too much.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Gold and clear with a slowly dissipating, sticky white head. Aroma of fruity esters, bready malts, light skunk, socks, medium sweetness and minimal bitterness. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, pretty bland flavor. A bit dated, perhaps.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle via trade. Pours a totally clear orange with some thin, white head. Nose is interesting, there is a little bit of garbage, sort of over ripened fruit, but that said, it could be an older bottle because the other aromas are grass, lemon, some persimmon, a hint of cedar. Flavor is sweet, the fruitiness of the weizen yeast comes out, some candy, orange peel, lemon peel, light soap. Medium bodied, refreshing finish. I’m sure this reads all over the place, as was the beer, but the whole was greater than the sum of it’s parts.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
There aren't any glaring reasons it's not great for a filtered wheat. Tastes closer to a pilsner with the grassy refreshing notes. A good beer, but nothing special.
