2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from Orchard Fresh, Orchard Park, NY. Hazy straw in colour with a tight white head; slight honey aroma; grainy body with a subtle honey taste that’s not too sweet; and a not unpleasant finish. Rather bland, but could have been far worse.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer is not totally useless. It is not the best beer in the world but it is definitely not w/o its good qualities. It basically tastes and smells like a lemon cookie. It has a clean, wheaty malt chaacter; it’s a bit sweet; and it has a touch of lemon. Despite the sweetness, vigorous carbonation keeps this feeling at least relatively light on the palate. Definitely, this is not a shining star on the craft beer scene but as far as "crafty" beers go, you could really do much worse.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear light yellow with a thin bubbly white head, aroma is of light wheat and maybe a hint of fruit character, not a whole lot there though, the flavor has a really sweet front end with a strange metallic like finish, meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass -
Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is biggest of a grassy, clover, and lemon smell mixed with a light wheat aroma. Along with these smells are some very light honey and biscuit aroma as well with just a hint of yeast.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter and crisp flavor with some wheat and a slightly doughy taste. The sweeter flavors are mostly of a honey nature, but also have some flavors of a more sugary sweetness. A bit of lemon comes to the tongue more toward the middle, with the wheat and doughy flavors lessening at the expense of a light biscuit flavor. With a light grassy taste coming to the tongue at the end, one is left with a sweeter but yet somewhat crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather nice for complementing the sweeter flavors all while keeping it more on the crisp and refreshing side.
Overall – A bit on the sweeter side but actually rather crisp and refreshing and a pretty easy going summer style brew; just what it is meant to be.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a bright white head that fades quickly leaving no lacing. Light aroma of citrus and wheat. Almost nonexistent. Taste is also very light with honey, wheat, citrus (orange mostly), and a bit of malt. Crisp and refreshing. Quick finish of wheat and orange. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation. Not bad. Would be good on a hot day. But ultimately there are many, many better wheat ales out there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear pale yellow with a nice head. The lacing is average and is not well retained. Nose of Belgian yeast over a light honey sweetness with a touch of citrus. Almost medium bodied with a strong level of carbonation that imparts a nice effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is that of a classic wheat ale, but is quite muted. Light citrus over light honey with just a barely noticeable touch of spice. Nice crisp finish that finishes clean.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very citrusy--almost like a fruit ale. Other than that, the wheat flavor is very mild.
