2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’ve had this beer many times on tap and bottled - Most recently from a 12 oz into a shaker. Pours a straw yellow with lots of haze and cloudiness. Nice head if you pour straight in. Looks OK. Aroma is very mild - slight wheat, slight citrus, a little earthy/grassy. Smells decent, but a bit light. Taste is very light (read: watery and slightly dissapointing), light citrus/lemon, slight wheat and thats about it. Overall, it’s very light and unforunately only 4.2%, but it is nice and refreshing on a hot summer day. You can do better, but it’s OK.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a sickly pale, cloudy yellow in a Weizen. Smell is obvious of wheat and big on a light citrusy lemon smell as well and is overall quite nice. Taste is wheaty, somewhat tart and lemony, and I can swear I taste the alcohol in this 4.2% beer though... Very thin, watery, and somehow tastes a bit boozy. I actually like wheats, but this wasn’t worth revisiting.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap, and served in a shaker. This beer poured a lightly hazed golden color with a one-finger thick, off-white head that quickly faded away to nothing. Some very faint lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of wheat malt, very mild citrus notes, and also some grassy/hay notes. The flavor was crisp and light, displaying notes of wheat, lemon, and also some faint orange. The mouthfeel was refreshing and light-bodied with a solid dose of carbonation. I guess this would be fine to session outside on a hot day, but it is definately not one of my favorites.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle - Poured a hazy light straw color with nice white head. Aroma was sweet and smelled like grains. A light mouthfeel with wheat and malt taste. This beer is very easy to drink and is slightly watered down tasting which is nice on a summer day. I was fairly satisfied because it is alot better than Miller or Bud at close to the same price $6.29 a 6pac.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled countless times at Goose Island, yellow color, white head. Fairly simple and straightforward. Mildly tart finish, the body and finish dont work for me.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, yellow with a white head. I thought this was a pretty decent brew. It would hit the spot on a hot day.

12oz bottle. light lemony yellow color has a slight haze. bright white frothy head. yeasty citric aroma smells clean. toasty grains play a part as well as mild bubblegum. a soft grainy easy drinking wheat ale. some fruit bubblegum and dry crusty finish are also present.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Mcguilicuddy’s. Pour was brilliantly clear golden yellow with lots of carbonation to display. Head and lacing not that impressive, as this style normally has more to offer. Aroma was herbal and fruity. Flavor was earthy, herbal, and fruity, yet no wheat bite and not nearly enough hops in the finish for an Am Wheat. Light body. Came across as a wheat-based blonde ale with little character, only decent drinkability.
