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.

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.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 4-12-08. "Beery," surprisingly hoppy, grassy aroma. Pours an effervescent pale gold with a small amount of white head. Produces good lacing. Hoppy, bitter taste. Itís remarkable that a wheat ale is this bitter, though there is some underlying sweetness. Black pepper flavor. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Trout Slayer is not a bad summer refresher, but itís simplistic and not exactly my kind of beer.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2008
Peppery and slight floral nose. Yellow gold with slight haze. not much sweetness, almost slightly sour in the bitterness. Not terribly balanced. Bubbly and thin, not much finish.

BelgianBeerGal (3103) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2008
Bottled. Clear orange amber colour with no real head or lacing. Aroma is citrus, wheat and hints of yeast. Pleasant. Crisp, hoppy flavour with no bitterness and a clean finish. Nice wheat, easy to drink.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours a clear amber, with a small white head and tons of carbonation. Smells a bit rancid, like an overripe Granny Smith apple. Flavor is light, and mostly yeast. Palate is thin and watery. Overall, and uninteresting, uninspired brew.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2011 sample from bottle on 11/16/11. golden pour with a small white head. banana and light citrus notes with wheat on the nose. medium body with banana, grapes and bread. nice full smooth body with a light citrus bitterness. crisp and dry finish with yeast esters and a citrus bitterness.

spikester (603) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Nice APA. Lotís of hops and nice malt character. Very sessionable. Amber color with a 3/4 inch head. Aroma of toasted mat, earthy hops. Sight citrus presence. Easy drinker.

jake65 (2595) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Bottle: Bubbly golden with a moderate white head. Smells kinda sweet and grassey. Flavor is wheat and crisp florals. Carbonation is brisk before the watery bit in the tail. Bland and dissapointing.

Thanks to jetzler. Solid pale gold body with light carbonation and a cottony white head. Aroma is of light butterscotch, sweet doughy malt with an apple tone, and moderate strength citric and peachy hops. Flavor is fairly dry with light fruity esters, a nutty note, and a lightly bitter finish. This is a clean, easy-drinking American wheat ale. Does have some underlying character and is not bad for what it is.
