BrewBoxer (2255) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Draft at cowgirl seahorse NYC. Pours a light lager color. Taste is crispy a d not offending however I don't see the wheat beer in it. Maybe they poured the wrong one or the keg was messed up. Either way I expect more from captain Lawrence ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours like a wheat beer - big white head, but a clear straw body. Aroma of pepper and clove, lemon, grapefruit soda. Nice for a wheat beer. Taste of lemon, wheat, yeast, some bitterness, grapefruit rind. Light body. Palate lemony and refreshing. Good hot-day seasonal.

dmac (4336) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Poured an ugly mostly clear piss yellow with a slight greenish tint and a small foamy bright white head. Aroma of wheat, grapes, grains and honey topped bread. Medium body with average carbonation and a lightly dry finish with an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor is slightly better then the aroma, notes of grass, dry bread, wheat, corn husks. Meh, nothing special here.

ben4321 (4318) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Giannone, 5/22/13

Aroma: Basically, it is what you’d expect from a "hoppy wheat": wheat, pine, lemon, and spice
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden-orange color with a thin white head and light lace
Flavor: Tastes sweet/spicy up-front, with a middle bitterness, and a thin flavor on the finish
Palate: Fairly light bodied, with fizzy carb, and an abrupt finish that give it an extremely short duration
Overall Impression: For some reason this beers falls off really fast. It barely stays on the tongue long enough to say it has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Really, it just had a beginning and a middle, and then disappears right before the end. Honestly, I kind of like what they did here, but the way it completely falls off the cliff in the middle palate is weird, and keeps it from being a better beer.
