COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an unfiltered wheat beer light in color and low bitterness. This refreshing beer is brewed with wheat and barley pale in color. The wheat and barley is brewed using a temperature controlled step mash. In doing this we utilize the proteins and enzymes necessary to convert sugars for fermentation.

Bottle from Keil’s. Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Nose is slightly sweet and grainy. Fairly boring wheat ale. Lightly spiced with a hint of malt.

Aroma is pretty neutral. Not much but some honey and cracked wheat. Appearance is transparent gold. Flavor is a little sweat and bitter, very simple. The palate is thin.

This company proves there is a direct correlation between the quality of the label and the quality of the beer. For some reason, I can’t stand those clear sticky labels. Maybe that has something to do with the beer they hide inside. A lifeless ííoff-hazyíí golden yellow liquid topped with a small patch of white pond scum. Aroma of yeast, sweet malt, honey and some light almonds, actually not too bad. Taste of almonds, sweet malt, fruit and soap. Some nutty bitterness seeps in as does some astringency.

Found a single of this and how could I not snatch it knowing the quality that this brewery puts out. Upon looking at the prior scores this looks to be an above average effort from the place. A decent looking pour. Cloudy golden color with a tall, lasting off-white head. Sweet aromas of pears, apricots, wheat and marzipan. After awhile some light almond scents sneak in, but still seems sticky. Fairly thin and nearly water feel. Some pale lager notes, mixed with almonds, bread and hints of citrus. Seems to go quickly, which in some ways is a good thing. I do catch a bit of hops bitterness in the linger. Somewhat simple. Certainly not gut wrenching like some of the Gluek products.

This beer sure is the ass of the crafts. Pours hazy yellow orange with a thin, crisp white head. Smells like honey and roasty almonds, some citrus. Sounds good enough but something is not right. It’s pretty much a mess. Medium body, fizzy carbonation.

18-Aug-08 (12-oz bottle: Purchased 16-Aug-08 for $1.29 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) Apparently new to the San Diego market, a trio of Cold Spring six-packs was stacked for "quick movement." Certainly an odd decision for this normally fine bottle shop, so good luck with that. Only the Honey Almond Weiss was available as a single-bottle purchase, so thatís all I picked up. The beer pours a hazy, golden-amber color with a very small, filmy, white head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of bread, honey, cheese, socks and cardboard suggest this beer is old, but presumably itís not. Bready malt base mingles with vague flavors of sweet honey and artificial almond, plus a hint of tartness. The flavor is passable, but certainly doesnít inspire much enthusiasm for subsequent sips. Maybe itís the almond flavoring that makes the beer taste cardboardy and old, but thatís the beerís biggest downfall. Body is light but not watery, carbonation is light-medium, the mouthfeel is smooth and easy, and the slight tartness does help to keep this wheat beer from sitting all fat on the palate. I canít say Iím a fan of honey or almond in beer, so itís not surprising I didnít find this enjoyable, but the beer isnít awful.

Copper color with a medium head. Slight almond aroma and lots of grain. Very watery grain flavor. Little to no wheat.

bhensonb (10970) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 24, 2008
12 oz. bottle from HI-Time. Hazy orange-tinged color with a very few white bubbles for head. Aroma is floral and dusty over pale malt/biscuit. Near medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor starts slightly citrus tart, but quickly flattens out to just a decent wheat beer. A little citrus sour lingers at the finish which is pretty clean. Have no idea where the hops are. Fairly refreshing drink.

Skyview (5177) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a semi-clear golden pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates to a thin film and white ring. Aroma of light bread malt, a touch of flowery hops, a hint of yeast and some light marzipan. Taste is light bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of light multi-grain malt with some wheat, flowery hops and a touch of sugar. Finish is light, crisp with a quick disappearing wheat aftertaste and finishes clean. A solid wheat ale but very light bodied.
