2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly cloudy golden appearance with minimal lacy white head. Smells of grains and a hint of fruitiness. Taste isnt all that special. You can taste the wheat, as well as banana mingled in with grapefruit. Refreshing in summer, but that is about it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy light amber,white head.Light citrus nose.Pleasant light bodied,mild refreshing citrus flavor.
Not a lot of cloying yeast, more like American wheat instead of the German style,I prefer this.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slighty hazy yellow with a short head, no lacing, thin-bodied. Hints of lemon, banana, pepper, chestnut, and if my nose isn't deceiving me...bourbon, nicely complex. The taste however did stand up to the aroma, some spices and fruit but no punch, flat. Spices also linger on the palate. I also agree with marinaro500 that the label "art" is just awful, some of their labels are cool, just not this one.

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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
