A very enjoyable wheat beer, from a small Wisconsin brewery. The wheat used in this beer is from Washington Island up in Door County. Very smooth and refreshing.

Ratman197 (10720) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, light straw and a hint of earthiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, bread and a hint of earthiness with a smooth dry finish.

AirForceHops (4077) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Clear gold with some lasting retention. Aroma is malted wheat and a hint of citrus with nothing more.

Simple and straight forward. Wheat, grain and hey with mild citrus hints. Body is on the lighter side with a nice crispness that does give the beer some easy going drinkability. Is it a bit plain overall? Yes... It is but it has no problems and found that when it was all said and done the 12 oz can was gone really quickly. If this is available in your area it would make a wonderful lawn mower brew. 12 oz. can courtesy by shrubber85.

"i really didn’t taste anything to give me the impression of uniqueness or added complexity to the wheat here. i actually thought it was a bit underwhelming and under average for the style, in that non-ofensive kind of way. oh well..."

mike5326 (1100) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Hazy yellow color, small white head. Not much of an aroma. No body with zero flavor. Almost like drinking a glass of water. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (2030) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear gold with medium white head. Aroma is malty, medium/light body, low carbonation, and some big bubble lacing. Taste is simple malt. Not a hoppy American wheat, just a simple malty beer.

thegreenrooster (3432) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a nice wheat malt with maybe some lemon. Flavor is again dry wheat malt with a decent little hop kick to it toward the end. This is not just another boring wheat ale.

shrubber85 (8582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Light lemon and wheat malt aroma. Slightly hazy golden yellow with large head. Light sweet-sour lemon and wheat malt flavor. Very lightly bitter herbal finish. Okay but not much to it.

deekyn (1325) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 27, 2014
A - pours a golden blonde/straw with a tinge of urine. Very low white head. S - grainy nose. Very light but prominent cereal grains like a heavy coors light honey and floral notes linger. Simple and overly strong. M - light medium body with low carb. Sort of Thicker textured body with an unpleasant feel. Slippery. T - grains, grains, and grains. Like a dogfoody version of corona. Strong honey and honeysuckle notes. Some wheat. O - note the light summer island wheat I had hoped.
