1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Never been a fan of the style, they always taste amd smell like sweat to me. Not too bad, and more than once it has been the best option at a 7-11 or dive bar. Local pride is the main reason to drink this. I prefer the barley when I am drinking lighter stuff.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours very light hazy yellow with a small white head. Very pale color. Aroma is that normal American Wheat aroma - wheat, grains, flour, a little bit of rice or something. A tiny bit of tartness or citrus comes out in the aroma but not much. Taste is very watery, smooth, a little grainy with a non-existant finish. Very light beer here. While this is not a category of beers I like very much this one does not stand out at all.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale straw with a short living, white foam. Very bland, unappealing and boring.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle: Pours a hazy yellow with a soft cap that fades quickly. The nose is weak, some bubble gum esthers if you reallly try. The body was about the same for me - a bit hoppy with a nice balance of vanilla and banana, but nothing spectacular. Tastes like an American Wheat yeast strain and lower alcohol. I could drink quite a few on a hot day, but the style just seems to be a Hefe-light kind of approach.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled via 12-oz bottle at 10th Annual Ice Cold Beer Festival in Minocqua, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear pale light straw brew with a thick white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of light mulit-grain malt, some yeast, and citrus zest. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of light multi-grain malt with wheat, yeast and a touch of citrus zest. Finish is semi-dry with a lemon zest aftertaste.

Bottle. Aroma of wheat and citrus. Slightly hazy golden color with a decent white head. Medium bodied with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is wheat with citrus. Flavor fades rapidly, and the finish is a little grain and a touch of citrus that persists.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy yellow golden in color with light short-lived head. Big heavy wheat aroma - nice malt and hops mixture. A bit watery overall and weak on the palate. Overly light in flavor and palate for my liking. Quite thin. Taste is somewhat lemony.

There is a lot of hype about this beer, since Iím next to the 312 area code, but there isnít too much to back it up for me. It is slightly too light, slightly too muddled, slightly complex and not much else. I guess it has a pleasant taste and is easy to drink, in the summer that is.
