COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hand-crafted American Wheat captures the essence of Spring and Summer. The citrusy hop character is complemented by some subtle fruity esters, making this hazy brew perfect for the warmer months.

Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is lemony. Taste is generic american, but in a good way. Imagine coors and add lemon.

Secret Krampus rating #1, thanks Peter. Wondering if he had prior knowledge of my hatred of American Garbage-Style Ale (Americanized "hefe").

Pours bright gold with a small amount of white head that dissipates quickly. Most of the carbonation leaves the beer fairly quickly as a result.

Aroma is corn, skunk, and lemon; kind of sweet. Mostly just booze and corn.

Flavor is lightly skunky with some bitterness, lemon, grass, and grain. Taste the complexity, bro. All around kind of a crappy wheat beer but not horrific or anything like that.

12 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have moderate sweetness, wheat, grass, light spice and fruit.

b3shine (5426) - Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle to taster (shared by Tmoney99). Looks decent; a transparent light gold with thin white lacing. Smells of wheat and yeast with a bit of bitterness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Tick tock.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate sweet wheat and citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration.

rondphoto (2006) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear golden amber with a minimal head and light swirls of lace. Taste is fizzy, somewhat wheaty malt that has the hops entering well into the finish. Seems a lot like the big box guys throwing their beers out with some hops in the finish. Not a good marriage of tastes, not nearly as good as the flagship brew (and that only one advanced to 3.0 by my rating). Not recommended

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 14/20
Patrickctenchi (3654) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Nearly clear, light gold with a frothy, white head. Wheat aroma, a little lemon. Sweet lemon, wheat malt. Soft and creamy. Nothing outstanding, but solid.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
jhp40219 (304) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours a clear golden color with initially a two finger white head and a good amount of lacing. Not much on the nose. Faint aroma of wheat, white bread, hay, and a hint of lemon. Light on the flavor as well. Like the aroma, a little bit of wheat, white bread, but this time the hint of lemon tastes completely artificial. Rather dull and dry, but also light and crisp. Slick texture that surprisingly isnít all that thin. Average carbonation and a quick finish of wheat and light bready malt. Might be nice for a session beer or as a refresher on a hot day. But definitely average in every way.

Chudwick (2145) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Draft (thanks to the Louisville Vintage Motorworks crew at Mid Ohio) - pours hazy yellow with white head. Nose is citrus. Flavor adds light cheese. Dry finish. Better than the Old Milwaukee that Iíve been drinking for the last two days.

Bottle. Nose has some slight wheat elements to it with some spiciness really dominating. Taste is nice and light with just a hint at cittus coming through. Decent summer brew.
