3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at The Happy Gnome. Pale gold in colour with a bit of haze and medium carbonation. Aromas are of flowers, peach, and a bit of wheat. Quite tart in the mouth, with notes of quince, lemon, and malted wheat. Fruity and a bit simple, but could provide some nice refreshment on a hot day.

bottle. Pours yellow and flat. Aroma of some hay, grass, wheat. Flavor is some spice, wheat, apple, understated. Thin and fizzy, not that great.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from VIllage Beer Merchant. Hazy yellow pour with fading white head. Aroma is nothing special to me....typical citrusy grain wheat beer aroma. Flavor is along the same lines but with a decent hoppy snap to accompany the decent sweet grain finish. If it were even hoppier, perhaps it might set itself apart.....but overall, a decent easy drinking wheat beer, especially on a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into tall glass.
Medium gold that is slightly hazy from the yeast. The yeast particles are very small and produce a nice sparkle effect. Some lacing but not much head.
Major lemon smell, with some sweet wheat malt and light orange hops.
Not a lot of taste but what is there is mostly nice. Citrus flavor overall - both lemon and orange, with some wheatiness, but not too much. However, it is slightly too sweet for me considering the style.
Pretty high carbonation and light body.
Pretty good for a summer day. Nice example of an American Wheat.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Navy Pier. Pours a light opaque color typical of a wheat ale. Aroma is citrusy and hoppy but a little more doughy/stale than expected. Flavor was very mild and bitter with some sweet/spicyness. Nothing really too special. Palate is unremarkable. Not too great but its worth a try when in Chicago.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of wheat and oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, wheat, and oranges, leading to a dry wheaty finish. The body is light. An uninteresting and forgetable beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I used to like this one, but then realized it was not all that good. It is a watered down american wheat. If you like the style of american wheat then this might be okay for you. The malts just did not come through for me.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a little white head. Not much lacing. Wheat smell but not overally aromatic. Lacked in flavor and was little more tart than other wheats Iíve had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at GABF 2009. Hazy straw color with a small white head. Aroma is pale malt, wheat, citrus, and mild hops. Flavor is nicely balanced pale malt and wheat along with a slight citrusy hop kick and light spice. Palate is light and refreshing. This is not bad at all for a wheat ale.
