It had a dirty off taste to it, as though the lines or glasses weren’t cleaned properly. Sort of a weak wheat but had some sweetness. Not a good beer at all.

Sampled at Flat Branch. Pours a golden color with white head. Honey, malty flavors. Pretty light, not bad, but not a lot to it.

On draft at the source. The beer appears light golden with a thin white head. A nice sheet of lacing coats the glass. The aroma offers sweet honey, with a light malt bill and perhaps a touch of lemon. The flavor exceeded my expectations for sure. A tad sweet, but not cloying, at least not if you’re only having one pint. Sweet honey throughout with a light body. A touch of floral hops and bitterness in the finish. One of the better offerings from Flat Branch.

It poured a clear yellow color. The aroma was very light followed by a nothing flavor of light honey. The taste was pretty bland as well. Weak.

Tasted at Flat Branch Brewery in Columbia, Missouri. Very light appearance like a pale lager. Light malty aroma. A bit skunky American Wheat flavor with a strong honey flavor. A quite poor American Wheat.

Tap at the restaurant. Poured a golden color with a small white head. Aroma was grass, honey and bread. I’m not a big fan of wheat beers, but this flavor was amazing. The balance and taste was never before seen in a wheat ale. Great for what it is.

topherh (1912) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Pour at the brewpub was hazy golden with a white head. Aroma was sweet honey and malt. Flavor was sweet malt, honey, and a bit of wheat. This one is definitely of the filtered American variety. Well made and easy to drink.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Tasted 9/12/10. Pint from the Brewpub. Filtered with a pale golden hue. White ring and brainy head. Aromas of sweet honey and bitter rustic breads. Light to medium bodied with a tart honey flavor that almost dominates the palate. Lightly roasted malts and wheat add a dimension and a good amount of body. Light and smooth with pronounced flavors and solidly produced.

vyvvy (4080) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Sampled on draft at the brewpub - pours clear pale yellow with an off-white head. The aroma has mainly honey sweetness - light aroma overall. Light body with a bit of slickness from the honey. The flavor starts off with plenty of honey and light wheat notes that are on the American wheat side of things. The finish is sweet and clean. This is a bit light for my tastes, but it is still well made.
