2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on tap at Great Divide. Hazy, dark straw color body and a thin white head. Has notes of citrus, light esters, and honey but most prominent character is an odd nuttiness in the nose and flavor that detracts significantly and spoils what would likely be an unexciting beer anyway. Another poor example of a generally poor style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a little cloudy, gross orangey yellow color...smelled quite mild...citrus, cloves, a little banana...it also had a wet cat food quality to it...taste is weak...very thin bodied...a little spice to excite the sides of your tongue, but otherwise nothing really going on at all...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy, and pale orange in color, head is a bubblin’, very slim and quickly fading.
Slight lemon and spice in the nose...a touch sour, and over-carbonated.
Taste is best described as blase’...orange and citrus lay on the palate, a bit too limply. Has the weizen taste, but only a shadow of it, truly, just a sliver. Light bodied, with a short, insignificant finish. Effective only as a quick-acting thirst-quencher, nothing more. Kind of a dud, really, but these bottles will come in handy during the hotter days we have now and yet to come.
I’d choose many other weizens for flavor, though.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy yellow/light amber with a large diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of orange peel, lemon, wheat and spice. Light watery body with lively carbonation. Flavor of wheat and grass with hints of citrus and spice. Not offensive, but fairly weak and watery. A little disappointing.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Insignificant pilsner aroma. Looks like a hefeweizen; cloudy. Flavor of a pilsner with some malt. One dimensional. Even for an American wheat, this is bad. If they called it a lager it might be ok.

A decidedly average beer all around. Not a bad beer, just not very memorable.

this wheat looks great (deep golden color, thick creamy white head), arome has mild lemony notes, moderate grassy hoppy notes. flavor has notes of grass, lemon and caramel, with some burnt sugar notes in the finish...not bad.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light bubble film on gold straw bottle. Nose is light. Not much there. The flavor is reminiscent of a BMC product. The first flavors to come out are yeast, honey, a little citrus, some hops, and a little bit of cardboard. The finish is a little dirty and tastes kinda weird. Bland. Blah. Not bad, but quite boring. Hard to believe that this came from the same people that brew Titan, Hercules, and Yeti imp stout.
