Pours clear, deep gold with a puffy, off-white head. Scent is wheat, orange/lemon, a little soap. Taste is citric, wheat, and a strong medicinal/herbal bitter. Good beer....almost in APA territory.

22oz bomber thanks to Brigadier, thanks! Pours a clear light gold with a thin bubbly white head and a little bit of lacing, aroma has a decent amount of fruit with just a little bit of a hop bite, the flavor has some citrus on the front end with a dry finish, light mouthfeel but is crisp and clean, really not all that bad at all.

thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 29, 2012
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation hazy yellow colored body and a fair lacing. . The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of wheat and hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again. This is not your typical wheat beer.

shrubber85 (6984) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle. Light lemon and wheat malt aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Slightly sweet creamy wheat malt and strongly bitter lemon peel/quinine flavor. Not bad - very hoppy.

Growler courtesy of Amyliz4. Served in a Figure Eight pint glass. Fairly bitter without too much hop flavor. Nose has Amarillo. Touch of alcohol. Quite dry.

22 ounce bottle from Khan’s downtown. Sleight wheat taste. Orange yellow body. Grass and straw. Ok. Nothing special.

Tmoney99 (10100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Draft sample. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer.

queenholly (2617) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle. Wheat malt, pineapple, bread aroma. Hazy pale gold, with a moderate thick head. Predominantly piney resinous hops, a little wheat makes it through. Could use a little more malt balance, but I’d drink it on a hot day.

BBB63 (5750) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Tap at Back Road Fall Fest: Clean golden hue with a lasting frothy head, good lace. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, pine, resin, wheat, biscuit and some dusty yeast esters. The taste follows suit, a bit hoppier than most American Wheat but not in your face, wheaty, husky and grainy malt bill. Light and refreshing which I believe is the point of this brew. A quaffable brew.

hoosiers1994 (684) - Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bomber poured into a pint glass. Pours pale gold with minimal white head. Aromas are skunk, floral, and grass. Taste is bitter hops over pale maltiness. Lingering bitternes in the long finish is surprising for a wheat ale. Body is light, but this is very flavorful and bitter for a wheat. Overall, not bad.
