2.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An average American wheat ale. Watery tasting with an average palate. I need to try this again as Iíve recently become more interested in wheat ales and some of the Goose Island Iíve had over the past 6 months has actually been pretty good.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap, poured into a iced glass, with 2 large lemons by a goofy blonde barmaid. Drank the 1st down, then asked for one in a non-chilled glass, no fruit.
2 finger head, fades fast.
Aroma: not much.
Taste: Disappoining. VERY light, some corn, some light citrus. Not much going on there.
Easy to drink, I may try it again as the weather gets warm. Actually would rather have a Budweiser, than this.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a straw color with a small, frothy head. Aromas are bready with some sour mash notes underneath. Flavor is about the same. Tastes the same as it smells.

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.
