COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lightest beer, the beer appears yellow with a slight cloudiness and is topped by a rich white head. The Wag’s Wheat has a bread like flavor from the malted wheat, backed by citrus undertones. Our interpretation of the American Wheat beer style is light and very refreshing to drink. For additional refreshment try adding a slice of lime or lemon to the beer.

Rated on 7-14-2009 (Draft at Fort Wayne, IN Granite City) This beer forms a small white head that mostly diminished, hazy straw body and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is malty, wheat and citrus hops. The Taste is sweet, malty, wheat, citrus hops, and semi-crisp. The Palate is clean and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer could use a little more flavor as it is somewhat bland tasting.

Tried at Granite City Brewery in Kansas City. Part of a flight. Found all of the beers to be watered down and mediocre at best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A slightly less horrible GC beer. Still bad, but closer to two than usual.

TomDecapolis (4546) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange with a creamy white head that laced. Aroma of mixed citrus and wheat. Flavor is very lemony along with cereal grains. Easy drinking and smooth.

This was plain bad. Faint aroma and watery flavour. Don’t be expecting a hefeweizen here. This is junk.

Ericular (686) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Aroma is very faint. Taste is an OK balance of bread and citrus, but there just isn’t much there, and the beer is too mild and light. Still, better than the Northern Light.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Hazy yellow gold in color. Light lemon and coriander on the nose. There is a crisp lemon aspect on the palate along with a little barley note. There is not a tremendous amount of wheat feel to this beer. Overall it is just an o.k. wheat.

Not much of a scent, maybe wet paper bag. Taste is some water and like burnt wheat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at CBF. Pours a cloudy yellow. Not a whole lot of wheat going on... not a whole lot of anything going on. A little cardboard. Really not a good wheat beer.
