3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Straw colur, clear, near no head. Grapefruity cascade hop aroma. Sweet and orangey with rounded mouthfeel and light wheat malt character. The hope contribute more to aroma than bitterness. I find this beer pretty pleasant, and well balanced as far as summer beers go.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
To me this displayed none of the charaacterisitics that I associate with a wheat beer, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Poured crystal clear amber gold with a nice head that flattened into a lacy ring for the duration. I found no citrus or fruit characters at all in the aroma, only wet vegetation and malt. The palate is a nicely rounded light malt, slightly sweet, with grassy hops a pleasantly noticable presence. A great summer golden ale, but not a wheat beer in my books.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2004 Well says on the label its a "crisp and zesty wheatbeer", well its a touch crisp, but not particularly zesty or wheat-beerish. Uninteresting aroma, some sweet malty aromas, myabe some hops. Palate is lihgt-sweet, finishing dry, lightly crisp, lightly bitter, lightly malty, lightly hoppy, uninteresting, and too clean tasting, nothin much happening, OK balance i suppose, but a bit of a joke, especially at $15 AUS as 4 pack!!! Re:rate: just sweet crap in the end, but i guess its drinkable original rating-1.6

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2005 Very light straw colour with a medium but rapidly diminishing head. Lemon taste that is not too full, fortunately, cos who wants to suck on lemons all night long? Re-Rate 6/1/05 "A crisp zesty wheat beer" this hasn’t really got any better from last years brew.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted from the bottle. Poured a crystal clear, pale straw body with big odd bubbles that failed to form a head ( had minimal lacing ). No aroma, like trying to scent aroma from an Evian bottle! Light bodied inside, slightly acrid sour notes, citric cordial flavours and orange & lemon peel hints on the palate. Not at all a wheat beer and let alone flavoursome, nothing more than another forgettable macro-brewed ’Aussie’ beer!!!

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Lightweight seasonal wheat beer. It pours a light lemon colour with a fleeting head. Very fizzy-looking. Odd, uninviting nose with some sour uric notes. A light, effervescent champagne-like body that ultimately feels insubstantial. Some citric notes and barely-there hoppiness. Essentially characterless, with none of the flavour and body of a good European wheat beer. One of the weaker links in the ’Four Seasons’ range. (2003, bottle)

So, is it because that when you have a blond in summer she is supposed to be thin, bland and not too threatening? She certainly has not put me on the hop and I am sure she will maintain that lack of bitterness when I drop her in favour of something with more body. OK, enough of the double entendres, I tried this in summer and now have given it another go. Why? Don't know, except to remind me that seasonal flings often don't work. More of a what beer than wheat. Come on Cascade, give us some value for money and not just a cute marketing ploy.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
One of my least favourite beers ever. disgustingly sweet, like drinking fruity pine. horrific. $4.50 a bottle jesus christ.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale gold clear under a small very short lasting white head. Faint floral celeriac hops aroma. Very light fizzy watery watermelon style body. Light sweet floral eucalytus wisp of hoppy nectar flavours. . . . fading to . . . . . . well . . . . nothing really. Maybe a beer for new or light (as in flavour - not ABV) beer drinkers.
