3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from the brewery. Pours a hazy golden colour with a light head. Pleasant grassy and citrusy aroma. Tart flavour with some graininess, light-bodied with moderate carbonation. Hint of orange on the finish. Not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy honey gold with a brief bubbly white head. Aroma is wheaty and fruity, sweet, slightly perfumey/soapy. Fresh and wheaty with an undefined sweetness and a kiss of citrus and subtle spice. Solid.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to geth_in_beer for this one. Pale golden yellow appearance, slightly cloudy with a huge white head. The aroma is very fresh and wheaty. A fairly light lemony citrus component. A bit of herbal grassines as well. A hint of bubble gum and heavy wheatiness. A great example of an american wheat ale. Itís not a killer beer, but itís got this style nailed.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with GregClow, Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Jerc, my bottle via Big Red and K. Keep in mind we had the Garrison Imperial Pale before this and were completely blown away and surprised. Aroma is pretty much non-existent - mild wheat I guess? Yellow, small white head. Mild diluted wheat taste - tangy. Watery, bland, not good at all, what a disappointment after that pale. This bottle was only a couple of weeks old when we tried it, maybe we just got an off batch or something based on some other early good ratings...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted as I was bottling my Festabrew Westcoast IPA - Nothing to do with this beer, but Iím very exited about my IPA, so Thought I mentioned it!
Hazy yellow to light orange in colour with a nice creamy head. Citrus fruit aroma with some spices. Likewise for the flavours, with the addition of faint banana. Nice creamy mouthfeel and a lingering yeast finish. Not bad...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with tupalev, HogTownHarry, blankboy and jerc - tupalevís bottle. Hazy golden-yellow with a small white head. Aroma - I canít really place what Iím smelling, but I donít really care for it - wet grain, maybe? Body is thin, as is the flavour. A bit of coriander, a bit of yeast, and lot of nothiní. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev & jerc -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a cloudy dark yellow with an average size somewhat-lasting white head. Aromaís grainy, citrusy, mildly sour with some sweetness and yeast -- Iím not crazy about this aroma. Watery flavour of wheat, grain, yeast and a light sourness. Thin bodied. Quite disappointing, this is just passable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (330ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev. Cloudy gold-yellow pour, average head. Odd aroma - banana bread, cereal grain, stale hops - smells a bit of wild Belgian yeast strains. Taste was quite wan, light tree fruit, faint floral hops in the finish - not much of anything here. Thin, flat, slightly stale - mehh.
