This bottle poured a light straw color liquid with an almost nonexistent head, consequently there was also no lacing. It is bottle conditioned therefore must be poured very carefully to avoid stirring up sediment. The aroma was very light, reminiscent of a lager but more malt. There was a slight scent of lemon and some very faint spiciness. The flavor is very delicate. It starts out slightly sweet with hints of lemon. This would be very refreshing on a hot day. The initial sweetness fades to a relatively dry finish that has a satisfying duration.

Very little head for a wheat beer. Not too much going on, but decent for an american wheat. Just hard to get excited about this style.

Small white head thats short lived leaving a scant amount of lace behind. Hazy straw color. Light malts and yeast in the nose, a touch citrusy. Light body, nice co2 level. light, crisp wheat malt flavor, fruity with citrus flavors on the palate also. Dry finish. Thanks csbosox!

Thanks to csbosox for this one!
Pale straw gold with a frothy white head that left disappointly fast for a wheat beer.
Pineapple/lemon aroma with a well balanced flavor. The palate was filling and rich, with a good smoothness to it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Hazy, straw-colored ale. No head. Malty aroma and flavor with notes of wheat, cream and toffee. Light-bodied and fizzy. Crisp, clean, refreshing finish. Although, thereís really not much to this ale, it is very refreshing and mercifully lacks the cloyingly fruity and spicy characteristics of most wheats (one of my least favorite styles). I like this strain of yeast.

Thanks to beer handy for this. Geez, this is my 3rd consecutive wheat beer tonight. Pours turbid yellow with aroma of hopcit, Tastes malty, bready, with some finishing yeast, honey, and wheaty flavors. A unique wheat beer, with a solid complexity. Iíd drink this one again any day of the week, and any time of the year. Go Steelers!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle</B Pours a very pale cloudy light yellow. Very active fizzy white head that dissipates rather quickly. Sweet wheat taste with light fruit notes as well. Apple, pear, apricots maybe. Light grain taste with some lemon and apple. Very soft carbonation. Very mild aftertaste and quite light on the hops. Slighly chalky/unfiltered feel. Very pleasant and drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled: Hazy golden hue (get that yeast from the bottle!) with a fizzy and fading head and little lace. One of my knocks against this beer has been itís lack of head retention unlike many classic hefeweizens. The aroma is quite estery with a lot of lemon yeast notes and a noticeable wheaty nose. Not any banana or spice however, hence why itís an American Wheat despite itís unflitered nature...back to the rating, the taste starts twangy and citric, very similiar to the very lemony Upland Wheat Ale but is more subdued. The finish does display some nice wheaty tones. This beer is need of some clove or cardamom. The feel is watery and lively, refreshing enough I guess. What happened to this brew? I had it quite a bit when I lived in Nebraska and liked it then. Now it it watery and lacks depth. After reading other comments, I presume a receipe change was done, for the worse.
