jgb9348 (4993) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Crisp hazy golden coloured body with a thin one centimetre tall pure white head with a gold tint. Aroma of nice wheat, tons of bright grassy hops, a little alcohol and a good amount of citrus. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong lemony and citrus flavour with a pungent grassy and herbal hop kick, some lighter wheat and minor sugars, a hint of coriander seed freshness and a finish of earthy notes. Aftertaste shows some honey, a bit of herbs and spices, but mainly just wheat and some lemon notes. Overall, a good beer with some nice flavours surrounding the wheat and hops, as an easy-to-drink beer for the summer. Nice to try and recommended if you can find it. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 06-July-2013 for US$1.34 sampled at home in Washington on 15-July-2013.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle. Golden yellow color. Foamy white head. Thick hop aroma with citrus and pine. A little bit of lemon mixed in with pine and crisp hops. Reminded me of a cross between summer ale and ipa.

Bottle pour into wheat glass leaves 2 finger head..light golden color..nose is quite fruity with obvious traces of pear..honeydew..and raspberry..active carbonation..mouthfeel is kind of disappointing because doesn’t have as much complexity..slight banana presence on finish..but a bit thin overall..if you like a fruity American wheat offering this might be more appealing..

blipp (6663) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity base, light wheaty and bready notes, with a light fruity finish. Not bad.

solidfunk (4911) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Actually quite a pleasant beer. Pours cloudy golden with a little head and lacing. Nice head of hops, mash malt and wheat. Poignant yeast. Average carbonation. Sour and sweet finish in equal parts with a touch of bitterness. Well-balanced light beer. Bottle.

kerenmk (3050) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Hazy yellow-amber with white head. Grassy hop aroma with notes of lemon or bitter lemon, bitter taste, some laundry detergent and dry. Medium body, fizzy, bitter, long finish. OK.

Pours a hazy sunny yellow with a faint orange hue right in the middle of the glass. A few stray bubbles coming up lazily from the bottom. Fat off white head of soft creamy foam that fell too slow and left great lace and a chunky cap and thick ring. Lace clinging to the glass. Nose is sweet and delicious citrus, light sweet lemon and floral. Pale grain with a touch of dry sugar and soft spice. Sharp and enticing. Taste is muddled. The lemon is tart and juicy but the wheat never shows up to offset with it’s tall golden dryness. Floral and a touch of hop bitter on the back palate. The bread is light and carries the beer to a a finish that is a little puckering. The dry wheat starts to show up a little as ti warmed but the enticing sweetness was left in the nose. Aftertaste is a little sour.

The nose was crisp, the drink was not. Ill defined on the palate the flavors were all mushed together. The carbonation was ample and refreshed with each turn of the glass. The grain reminded me of toasted malt and even it had a sour aftertaste. It left you feeling like there was a big difference between the nose and the palate.
