The perfect beer for summertime. The aroma is fruity, while the flavor is smooth and light-bodied. Easy to drink, and even easier to enjoy.

Very good, awesome beer. Perfect taste, nice and light. Not just a summer ale, great for any time of the year, especially on a cold and snowy day. Get it if you can!

Very refreshing summer beer. I love frosty cold wheat ales on a summer day. I know Iím reviewing this beer in November but this summer I kept my fridge stocked with this brew at all times. The wheat presence is going to be dominant but thatís to be expected I really enjoy the hop complexity to this brew. Hints of floral and citrusy hops are all over the palate. Not extremely hop by any means mind you but just enough presence to make you stop and think about it as you drink this beer. Finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. Great beer, definitely one Iíll look forward to next summer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a thin finely-bubbled head. The aroma is very wheaty with a fresh floral touch of hops and bready, malted wheat. The flavor starts very wheaty, bready, and malty with a subtle touch of spice (fresh baked cookies with hints of nutmeg). There is also a light touch of floral hops. The finish is spicy with a crackery malt character and a nice balance of malted wheat and soft noble hops. The mouthfeel is medium in body with a light spritziness. Overall, a very refreshing, flavorful, tasty, well-balanced American wheat beer. I think this is beer is quite underrated - the average score is much lower than I would have expected.

There is a light wheat aroma and flavor to this beer,which is good for the summer. The straw yellow, almost cloudy appearance is nice for a summer, wheaty ale.

Interesting beer. I could detect none of the traditional wheat aromas, banana/cloves. What I did smell were lemons. Appearance is slightly cloudy with a small head. Taste is clean and refreshing, again with a touch of lemon. Finished dry with a slight astringency. A great summer beer.

Poured an attractive orange-yellow with a fair bit of activity, but a small head. The aroma is fairly wheaty; the flavor fairly full for a wheat ... fruity and floral with a mandarin orange sweetness to top it off. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 Bottle at Dr. Kevinís house, Colorado Springs, during the A&M/Baylor game. Pours a hazy gold with decent carbonation. Aroma is tangy grapefruit with hints of orange. Flavor has a subtle lemon presence as well as coriander and orange. Palate is a bit on the watery side, but it coats. Very refreshing and light. Awesome summer brew!
