2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap in West Yellowstone. Pour was a clear golden with little head. Aroma was fruitty and doughy. Flavor is sweet malt, fruitty, with a little bitterness. Not really what I would call a wheat, but very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, light citrus and light styraw. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw and light citrus with a crisp dry clean finish.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Poured clear honey tone with a fluffy white head. Aroma is faint with corn-malt and slight hops. Flavors are pretty pleasant, with floral characters that give way to sweet tones of malt and herbal hops. Other flavors of spices and maybe coriandor. This reminds me more of maybe a golden ale of some short.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy yellow with a moderate white head that is moderately persistent. Aroma is somewhat malty with some bitter hop accents...not much else, but smells decent nevertheless. Flavor is malty up front, and turns bitter near the end...although the finish is bitter, there really isnít any telltale hop flavors to go along with it...just bitterness. However, the beer is very clean in my flavor, and has some decent balance...didnít really come across as a wheat ale to me, but who knows...more of a weak APA IMO. Palate is average...decently thick for a beer of said ABV. Although this is far from a mindblowing experience, I think this is catching a bad rap because its a) not a cool style and b) isnít extremely hoppy...not running back for more, but would happily quaff another of these in the future.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bonus bottle from a long time ago, sitting in my frig waiting. Popped cap and I smell some melanoidins, which i usually like, but seem a little out of place here. Head fades instantly. Yellow color. Lots of bitterness, but not of the good kind. The flavor is not good. The bitterness lingers on my tongue and makes my face cringes the whole time Iím writing this. Yuck.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy yellow gold, moderate white head. Lightly fruit-accented pale malts, slightly wheaty, very low bitterness. Not bad, but not a standout either.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I picked up a six pack of this at the Co-op in Boise, ID. Most of the beers were full of diacetyl. This was like taking a sip of buttered popcorn. Did have one bottle that wasnít bad, but it was still overly astringent, unbalanced, and tasted like it was full of adjunct ingredients. I have to agree with the last rater who said it could actually be used to slay trout by serving it to them, rather than drinking the product yourself.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma of honey and corn, taste is more of the same and some lemon. Sure doesnít seem like a wheat beer to me. Bland, astringent finish. Perhaps the bottle would better be served to actually slay trout by throwing than by drinking what is inside.
