2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light-hazed golden body under a fast white head. Aroma is lemon zest atop pale malt and sourdough yeast. Bready flavor with toasted nuts and a sour finish. Feels like someone threw some ingredients together then picked a style when it was done rather than setting out to create a solid Wit. Chicago shouldn’t have to fess-up to this lackluster product (which was actually brewed in Wisconsin). ~~~~~~ 6 pk./12 oz., Kenwood Liquors, Oak Lawn, IL

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear golden with a thick eggshell head that doesn’t stick around for long. Wheaty aroma has an undertone of butterscotch and a yeasty hint. Flavor is wheaty with yeast and butterscotch hints, not strong but palatable. Texture has little fizz and average body at best. Still, an OK brew. Have it with a meal.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Pours a honey color with a bit of cloudiness to it. Light nose of wheat malts and hints of metal. Similar flavors of wheat, lemon zest and mild coriander. Still getting hints of metal in the flavor. Light in body and a bit grainy. OK overall.

A light beer with a bit of yeast and banana and light hops. A bit of malt and light color.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I’ll refrain from making comments about the term "Chi-Town" this time around. The ale has a clear yellow body with slowly rising bubbles supporting a three-finger white head. The note is wheaty, bready, with subtle traces of spices. The flavor is much the same, a wheat ale with hints of spices and a slight orange rind bitterness. I enjoy an occasional Wit, but will pass on this INO one in the future.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, showing a cloudy, golden color, with some good persistence to both the frothy, white head, and the spots & patches of lacing. The aroma started with a fleeting metallic hint, then some peachy sweetness, maybe a hint of spice, and light graininess that I can only describe as earthy & toasty. The taste presented moderate, citrusy & rindy bitterness, and a bit of tartness that both had some lingering qualities to them. Medium to light bodied, with perky carbonation, a fairly crisp finish, and okay sessionability.

Tap. Yellow pour with white head. Smells of wheat and slight malt. Taste sweet at the start with slight spice finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I think this oils over rated. This is one of the worst wheat beers I have had. Smells skunky and tastes wheat. Has a strange finish.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 I was expecting more from this beer. Still pleasant to drink, but nothing to get excited over.

Nothing too special here. Chose this over a blue moon. Looks better than it is, but I didnt expec too much more out of it. The flavor needs to be amplified a few degrees and then for me it would be a pretty good wheat.
