2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color is great. Pours a somewhat milky gold, with a thick white froth. The taste, while nothing wrong, lacks any special character to set it apart from the hundreds of other wheat beers out there. drinkable and thirst quenching, but I don’t see myself in a frenzied rush to get some more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale beige, opaque; very wheaty palate, lots of grapefruit, low phenols for the style; light body, sour, grapefruity finish. Different, and may not be to everyone’s taste, but I enjoyed its simple, citric, thirst-quenching properties.

orange, hazy, yeasty, and somewhat malty, it tastes like a typical American Wheat, wheats like these are really not to my liking.

This deep golden brew is slightly cloudy and is topped with a medium thick white head. the aroma is slightly sour yet well balanced with a hint of banana like fruitiness. the flavor is slightly sour and malty with fruity notes and well balanced with hops.

Tastes more like an American Wheat than a German one. Has a very citrusy taste that carries a slight sour aftertaste with it. It would be much improved if it had a touch of coriander or clove. Tastes sort of watery.

Very malty smell, cloudy orange color. Oddly, the malt doesn’t show up in the taste. Strong banana flavor, with some citrus too. To my way of thinking, this almost tastes more like a cider than a beer. Nice and smooth with a sweet taste, goes down easy.
