2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This would probably go down better if it wasn’t freezing outside since it’s a typical warm weather brew. I like the look, a hazy pale straw body with a large creamy white head, all making it appear like a Beligian Wit. But having wheat as an ingredient is about all that they have in common. It has a light wheat grain aroma with a twist of lemon. Same with the flavor, ending on a mildly tart citic bite. Uninspired.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Characteristic cloudy appearance reveals a very refreshing beer. Light citrus undertones are apparent in a less-than-exciting, yet very drinkable wheat. Very enjoyable after a long day of work...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2006 Bottle from Friar tucks in Champaign, IL. Pours hazy goldern orange with white head. Aroma is yeasty and bready, with some faint citrus. Mouthfeel is a tad light. Flavor of wheat malt, citrus, and yeast. Clean finish. A thirst quencing, solid session wheat.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A beer I commonly drink to feel refreshed after a long day. It gives you a bite at the finish that makes you just feel good about life...there is no other way to put it. Lacking on some flavor and I usually don’t attract to American Wheats but this is one beer that I won’t stop buying soon.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2006 Pours light straw and cloudy with a thick, soft, white head. The aroma has hints of old fruit (banana), some yeast, some wheat, and hints of menthol. The flavor, however, is a little more pleasant. There is some malt sweetness and some honey on the tip of the tongue. Wheat flavors enter in the middle, and hints of bitterness in the full-bodied finish. The mouthfeel is full and somewhat thick. Overall, so so....

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not sure how "we’ve added a small amount of yeast to the beer just before packaging..." equates to unfiltered, but either way, a few drips of dark brown B vitamins fell on top of the soapy white head as the bottle emptied. Body is a cloudy yellow with some booger-green highlights. Not fantastic looking. Aroma is rather repressed, with a hint of clove crawling into my nose, along with caster sugars and lemon. Taste is good, nothing bad, just a little sweet. Tastes very much like pineapple slices out of a metal can, including the taste of the can. Some soda water, a little pepper spice, and some berry malts round out palate. Decent wheat, especially for the US.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Light aroma consisting of light malty hay like scent with notes of citrus and flowers. Light golden color with minor opacity or cloudiness. Puffy white head, diminishing. Flavor is mild malt, bready, yeasty quality. Very minor bitterness. Very smooth. Citrus flavor is barely noticable. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel with a lightly, dry quickly diminishing finish. I can see why this beer sells well as an upgrade to the macros, and is widely available around here. Easy to drink, a good summertime thirst quencher, but not overly complex or distinct.

Sampled from 12 oz bottle on 10/25/2006 at the Junedale Beer Klub meeting...
Hazy light gold color with white head. Light wheat malt and yeast aroma and flavor. Light to medium body. Average American wheat beer.

On tap: Wheaty and citrus aroma come from the yellow hazy pour and off white head. The flavor is what’s expected sweet citrus hops, a little wheat, a little yeast, and a little clove. An average american wheat.

this beer didn’t have much flavor to offer. probably why most people feel the need to supplement with a lemon. however i would say i enjoyed it more than your typical american beer.
