COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the sun starts to peek out from around the dark winter clouds it is a clear reminder that brighter days lie ahead. Brewed with pale & wheat malts for a refreshing backbone & hopped with some bright citrusy American hops this beer will help you fight off the sun all season long.

Pretty good not your Daddyís American Wheat. Lots of flavor, lots of hoppiness. Big malty presence. The wheat effects seem quite subdued actually. A bit of bubblegum and some floral presence.

StueyD (1465) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
A pale gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A light floral hop aroma, hints of orange blossom and rose petals! There is of course a citrus fruit element in the background too. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is mild but lingering hop, the citrus flavours take precident with pithy bitter grapefruit and orange, this is followed by a hint of the floral elements from the aroma. He finish is long and hoppy. Draught at The Beer Authority,New York.

Totally quaffable summery beer. I like these hoppy wheat beers in general. This one is well balanced but perhaps a tad bland. Still pleasant and certainly a crowd pleaser.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a creamy white head. Aroma of honey, banana, and clove with banana, clove flavor, and a slight hint of honey. Nice summer beer.

Not impressed. A little of the grapefruit but missing the beer flavor that shows quality. Tap

6-pack from the corner, drank over the course of a week or so while dicking around online. Light color. Nose is light fruit/grass, some banana I think. Slightest bit musty. Ripe banana taste, little bit on the cloying side but gets better as you go. Not a bad springtime beer for the apartment.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 Tap pour at the Mtc Office. Hazy amber with short head that dissipates quickly. Nose of banana with some citrus from the hops. Taste is refreshing citrus, mostly lemon. Having played 18 holes in 80+ temps, very refreshing! (Re-rated w/o golf but with warm temps).

Canít bieve I didnít rate this during my early days on site when I was all in with the captain. Hazy yellow pour with nose of banana and cloves. Tastes of banana, clove, honey, wheat, and herbal finish. Thin but satisfying palate. Fine summer beer even now itís oddsly cold out

From Hawthornes in Philly. Summer in a bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. The aroma is malt with a hint of fruit. The flavor is lemony citrus with a bit of orange. Slightly tart with a nice clean feel. A bit thin but that is to be expected. A very fine brew for the hot weather.

Pale and malty flavor. Tangy and citrusy. Very sour. Too much so for me. The flavor combinations do not do well on my palate. Bitterness is evident. Itís very earthy and the artificial fruit throughout donít go well together. Sun block is a good descriptor here actually.
