3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on 5/4/2009. This wheat ale pours a slightly hazy medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is slightly fruity, a little spicy and citrusy. A medium bodied wheat beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, a touch of citrus and some cereal. Not picking up any banana and clove. The hops are floral. Mild carbonation. Not a bad wheat beer, but there is not much here. Or to be fair, there is not much here for me. I mean it’s a well made beer, I can’t taste any real bad defects, but I am fairly neutral on the beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught sample at the brewery. Very cloudy pour and a nice white head. Suprisingly citrus aroma and some light hops with the wheat. Very full mouthfeel. Very light, crisp and refreshing, especially on a summer day.

This beer is quite good for a wheat. Actually contains some characteristics of a pale ale. This is very fruity, citrusy. Pretty good.

Bottle from South Bay Drug. Pours a hazy orange. Aroma is lightly spicy and somewhat citric. Medium body with fizzy/foamy carbonation. This is a Belgian ale. No doubt. It’s a light version, but it is so Belgian. Fruit; spice; hop. Yummy.

Even though I had a lemon wedge in mine, this was a light and quenching hazy wheat beer. Quite a few muted flavors packed in. some spice, definite wheat taste. Overall a great summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Poured as a hazy liquid that was glowing a golden yellow hue and oddly enough didn’t create much foam at all. As for the aroma, there was a decent touch of honey and hops with a strong soapy scent in the background. The flavor is light and has a minimum of coriander and traces of zesty yeast that sort of taste like lemon and grass. This was an alright summer brew, but I would only plan on buying this maybe once every summer just to remember how it tasted because it doesn’t leave a big impression. I prefer a Kolsch style of beer on a hot summer day more than anything else.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a thicky yellow smoke body with a lathery white wheat head. Nose of endless acres of smooth, crackling wheatfields. Malty and wheaty body with the presence of stale crackers. Refreshing, medium-bodied and with the barest perception of banana phenols and cereal grain. A complex and satisfying American-influenced wheat ale.
