2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Citrus aroma and flavor, but seemed altogether too sweet, lacking the wheat punch of most hefeweizens. Refreshing as a beverage, but not so great for the style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
THis one starts out with a medium gold color and a large, but quickly fading, white head. I really like the aroma of this one. Nice mix of wheat, yeast, and some strong citrus coming through...they just seem to mix in a very pleasing way. This one ALMOST smells like a Belgian...or am I just a little off my rocker? The flavor, for the most part, matches the nose. This one really isn't rated too well, and lacks some depth and bite, but I'm surprised how little the other raters seem to care for this beer. Surprisingly good from a brewery with which I usually find myself disappointed! And I've been putting this one off because of its lower ratings...A GOOD REASON NOT TO ALWAYS BELIEVE WHAT OTHERS SAY!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Has a clouded yellow color and a sour smell. Taste was also pretty sour and finished pretty smooth. Overall not the best wheat that I have had.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Liked this even less than the FD pale ale. With the added fruit flavor, the spice taste stands out even more unpleasantly.

The aroma was initially sour, but then sweet like bublegum. The appearance is a cloudy gold with a thin head. The flavor was of bublegum and was very smooth. The beer is silky and very drinkable. Overall a very nice beer.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light caramel doughy nose with some banana. Hazyish yellow color. Becomes bitterly warming and offensive. Unenjoyable.

The label says, "Cut The Leash" and I did. I let this hazy yellow, stinky dog run loose toward the sink. Very unbalanced mess of rotten banana flavor and grassy corn oil. Just terrible. Also this bottle has the worst label of any beer I have consumed in my life, featuring a cartoon dog with a bloody nose watching as three dogs and what looks like a wild boar race towards it's open ass. Lovely.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is a beer that is somewhat representative of the German Wheat beers, but the taste has much more citrus in it than most. Not bad, but not too wonderful.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very light unattractive color, smells thin and very unappetizing. Whoa...this is pretty nasty. Boring as hell - there is literally almost nothing here. I cracked a homebrew german wheat of my own after having this and I felt like I was drinking a goddamn world-class beer - and I am sure as hell not a world class brewer. Thin, gross, and almost entirely tasteless.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy golden in color. Full green, grainy aroma in a bad way. Very wheaty with a tart finish. A tad thin for my tastes.
