12oz bottle pour into a large tulip. Bright golden color with an expected haze. The head is a pale butter color and quickly dissipates after the pour. The flavor is stereotypical American unfiltered wheat. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A- Pours a cloudy orange hue with little to no head. S- Banana, apricot, hints on wheat. T- Lots of wheat, smooth banana and light fruit with a malty backbone. M- Medium viscosity and carbonation. D- This is a great, refreshing summer beer. Not one that I would drink everyday but its a nice change of pace.

thome50 (1285) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle via the brewery. Pours a very light yellow with big white head. Aroma is hazy wheat and lemon. Taste is a middle of the road wheat beer with some slight lemon and citrus. Notes don’t show it being much different from the current iteration.

Nice summer wheat beer, nothing overly exciting. Tastes like a standard Belgian wheat (blue moon). ---bhiner41 Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Concealer (1190) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pours golden with a thin white head. Smells of wheat, hops, banana, some citrus and spice. Tastes pretty good. The most complex wheat beer I’m had. It had a good spicing and a nice underlying banana.
