Appearance? The bottle is pretty. Pint glasses are for little girls. Hooah! Earthy grainy aroma. Soapy watery metallic grain taste. Blucky!

Pours a four finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving traces of lace. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Crystal clear pale amber color. Nose has hints of malt, no hint of lime. Flavor is mellow - very light malt. $1.85 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

Bottle, pours light caramel with a medium off white head. Strong wheat aroma with light lime notes. Flavor is strong wheat with a lime syrup kind of thing in the finish. Not bad. Thanks for bringing to the party Steve.

Copper brown pour with a thin off white head. Tart citrus peel and a little oxidation in the aroma. Nice smooth maltiness, lime and a touch of wheat in the taste. Just ok.

Tricountybeer (167) - Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Aroma of light citrus and yeast/spice? Coppery amber color with a decent, lasting white head. Thin to medium body with mild, sort of chewy, carbonation. The flavor is wheat, lime indeed, and it seems some spice. The finish is a bit papery, but not all that bad, and the citrus helps out. Pretty refreshing.

GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2010
Copper color with thin tan head and some lacing. Scents of malt and lime. Similar in taste, with a nice balance. Medium-bodied with a smooth finish. Overall a nice wheat ale.

12 ounce bottle from Dans. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malts, light lime. The flavor is decent; mostly rich wheat and grains, thin and watery. Light lime. OK.
