UPDATED: JAN 29, 2006 Just a normal wheat beer, cloudy yellow with thin head. Nothing special going on here slight fruit and spiciness but very subtle, but I do love wheat beers and with an orange this was good.

Really standard wheat pale yellow color. It doesn’t really scream anything at you beyond, ‘yes I am a beer’

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Via Matt: Hazy medium yellow hue with small fizzy white head and some lace. The aroma hints of slight banana, moderate sweet spices, bready and grassy, mild dusty yeast esters too. The taste starts acidic and yeasty. Some nice spice character along with malt presence, but missing the citric (lemomy) undertone. The mouthfeel is flat for a weizen, not lively enough. A lot better than some American Wheats I have had, but nowhere near than quality of a real deal hefeweizen. (Bonus point for having a banana undertone, which most American Wheats do not)

Pours a hazy gold with a small head. Flavor is malty, a little sweet. Not muh hops. The flavor lacked the lemony tartness that defines a good wheat beer. The mouthfeel was flat, lacking the spritziness of most wheats. Not bad, but if I didn't read the bottle, I wouldn't know it was a wheat.

more wheat please. This ale had a neutral aroma and lasting carbonation. The color was a tiny bit cloudy yellow with a decent head. Unfortunately the wheat flavor was lacking and i tasted a crisp, sweet, malty style ale. The taste subsided very quickly and left a lingering sweetness. Very easy to drink and with a little more umph this "wheat" ale could be a winner.

Draft at Dunedin Brewery in Dunedin, FL. This beer lacks flavor for a wheat beer. It poured a small sized creamy and smooth white head with fine-large sized bubbles that were long lasting. The body was uncarbonated and cloudy with a yellow hue. The nose was that of banana, wheat and citrus. The flavor was citrus and some banana notes with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. This was a light bodied beer with very sparse lacing.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 110. This draft brew was sampled at the brewery in Dunedin Florida. This brew poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a haxzy yellow colored uncarbonated body. The aroma was horse blanket and the mouthfeel was mild with a tingly smooth feeling. The flavor was a mild malt wheat mix.

Well done. I'm always a little hesitant to try wheats at micros, but Dunedin has done this one well. Nice clody yellow-orange color with citrus and bananas on the nose and palate. Nice head with decent lace.

Small frothy white head on top of a clear pale golden body. Earthy, almost sour aroma. Not too pleasant. Flavor is better, wheat but that is about it. Watery body. Mediocre overall. Based on others ratings my bottle may have been past its prime. (purchased at World of Beer in Clearwater, FL)

Hazy golden colour with a fairly thin large-bubbled white head. Smells of wheat, yeast, bread and a fair amount of lemon & citrus. Light-bodied; Very strong yeastieness along with the lemon twang. Finishes a bit more mellow, with a nice wheatie flavour. Overall, a very good summer beer and definately a good beer for the style. A perfect treat for a weekend on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, straight from a very nice Ratebeerian: Matt A. (Mabdoney) in Florida. Thanks again Matt! I sampled this 16 ounce bottle on 30-August-2003.
