2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Off-white head fills the glass on the pour -- literally no liquid is visible until 1/3 of the foam had dissipated. Hazy golden liquid. Aroma is mild sweet, herbal, lemon. Taste is mild sweet, lemon, some orange, wheat. Light body, moderately tart, extremely carbonated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours cloudy yellow which is a good start, with a thick white head. Light fruit aroma but no banana esters. Full bodied with a light wheatiness to it. Refreshing.

Visited the brewery in Denver and had a great time with Bernie, one of the brewers. Nothing like a great friendly brewery! This was bright yellow and lightly malty, more like a light lager than an American wheat, but a good summer gulper.

pours a light yellow color with a thin white head. smeels of grass, wheat, and citrus. very light body with very little flavor...quite bland tasting. not much else to say...i'd rather drink water than this.

Unfortunately, I must agree with OverTheifEMT, this beer does indeed smell and appear macro-brewish. It does at least have a nice big egg white head that is retained. Aroma is straw. Flavor is quite flat and flavorless. I am concerned I have an old bottle. May try again, may not.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Looks and smells like a macro, very strange. Extremely dry and overly carbonated makes this taste like a bad champagne. Not something I'd drink again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A little too fizzy. Poured nicely, but just middle of the road on everything. It wasn't offensive, but it seemed to be missing something. A little too watery in the mouth feel for my taste.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very fruity, pickled peach aroma. Clipart label -- you really shouldn't try to pull 'great divide,' 'whitewater' and 'wheat' into a unified graphic element unless you did something with toast wedged into Monica Lewinsky's cleavage. Overcarbonated, a 100% fizz pour which didn't dissipate. Took 5 mins to pur 12 oz into a 32 oz glass stein. Vinegar flavor, way too much CO2, pickled peach flavor. Yeck. On the chance that I got a bad bottle, will re-rate at a later date.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange gold color, slightly hazy. Small head. Aroma is fruity and slightly sweet. A medium bodied wheat beer. Malts are fruity, sweet, and a touch grassy. Hops are very slightly spicy. Fairly typical American wheat beer. No banana and clove flavor to it. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2005 Rerate The aroma knoocked me over this time around - unpleasant and sulphric and the mouthfeel is quite thin and carbonated Original 2.7 Sticky white head with decent lacing. Light orange appearance - slightly hazy. Bit of a fruity, doughy aroma - a tad bit unsettling but not offensive. Not much of a typical wheat flavor - missing that ester quality that most have. Rather bland and leaning towards metallic. A bit too much carbonation for my taste as well.
