3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a very fluffy two finger white head. Excellent head retention along with ok lacing.
The aroma is very fruity along with some bubblegum yeast esters. There is a really nice interplay between the fruit from the hops and the fruity from the yeast.
The flavor continues this hoppy/yeasty mixture although I feel like the yeast is a little more prominent than in the aroma. Bitterness is on the lighter side with a slightly watery mouthfeel.
Overall, a nice version of a lighter pale wheat ale. I would have liked to have had a little more in the way of hops but all in all, a nice refreshing and easy to drink beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped: 3205-1354-D-BEST BY 12/21/13. So I am reviewing it about a month after its expiration date. The color is a heady cloudy pale yellow with lively carbonation. The aroma is toasted biscuit, wheat, grass, honey, and mildly floral (which could be the same as "grass"). The body is light to medium with a smooth texture. The taste brings out the hops much more than the nose would suggest, which is what they were probably attempting to accomplish with this brew. Biscuits at first and pleasing hops at the end. Even a month after its expiration date it holds up well.

Pours a cloudy pale gold wheat color with a nice white head. Aroma of lemongrass, floral hops, and wheat. Taste is really great, makes me forgot that it’s below zero outside and takes me to summer with a floral, lemon, and crisp finishing tatse. Love this beer !

Having this one at Rustico on draft. Straw colored and foamy, nice wheat flavor. I am not sensing the hoppiness, maybe some citrus, very little. Finished clean, refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle - Pours a cloudy straw color with a large off-white head. Ith as a very grapefruit forward aroma. The flavor has mild to moderate hops bitterness with wheat malt and a bit of citrus. It’s light bodied and the malt is bland. Underwhelming.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a 12 pk assortment. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with an average white head. Taste is a combination of a Kolsch, IPA and traditional wheat beer. Very crisp and refreshing however will not overwhelm you with a complex flavor palate.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with white head. Citrus and floral aromas lead the way with undertones of yeasty wheat bread dough. Refreshing taste with medium sweetness and just enough hops to keep it interesting. Crisp, clean, delicious. I don’t normally care for wheat beers but this one is spectacular.

Wow! Picked up one as part of a make your own 6-pack. Now I wish I had grabbed a few more. A very good mix of a wheat and IPA. A hoppy, lemon aroma, with a light golden color. A crisp, clean flavor. Would make for a great summer brew. I could throw many of these back at a time.

Cloudy, yellow/gold appearance with an average size white head and light lacing. Aroma of citrus, mainly orange and lemon. Hoppy taste is balanced nicely by tart, grainy flavors. Decently carbonated, medium bodied mouthfeel. Finish hangs around for awhile. Interesting and well executed.
