Itís not easy for me to rate this, and Iíd recommend you take my rating with a grain of salt. I am not fond of wheat beers. For the most part they just donít cut it with me. Many of them (not this one) have an odd, rotting banana taste/smell. This one has more of a stale sugar cookie nose. Looks like cloudy grapefruit juice. Tastes like watered down cloudy grapefruit juice. The alcohol content is sub par. Itís rather flat, destroying itís chances as a thirst killer. This isnít horrible yet I donít like it. I just donít really like most wheat based beers. The end!!!!!

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 (7295) - 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.

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.

So, this is one of my all-time favorite beers. In 2006 when this debuted as a summer seasonal, I couldnít get enough. Then in 2007, it started becoming part of regular production. There is a lot of wheat on the nose, but earthy wheat, most likely coming from the wheat from Washington Island which is where the wheat for this ale comes from. On the palate, there is a little sweetness, but balanced out by the earthiness of the wheat. Not a whole lot of hops present. A great easy drinking beer for a hot, humid summer day.

drdisque (504) - Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2014
From a bottle poured in a shaker. Pours the most slightly cloudy pale. Aroma is fizzy flour. Flavor is sweet and pleasant and light grain. Refreshing but probably on the bland side. Very nice lawnmower beer but not much more than that. Solid for a filtered wheat.

basaywhat (35) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow with little remaining head. No lacing after a while. Lemony aroma, but only slightly noticeable. Taste is a typical american wheat ale. An average brew, nothing special

Frozer (106) - Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2014 Drank from the bottle. Lighter than expected. Nice wheat flavor and somewhat biscuity. Carbonation fits the bill well also. Easy to drink, very sessionable.

Bottle. From notes. Wheat and yeast with a good dose of lemon tart and sweetness. Good, but not great.
