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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle that I got with my Microbrew of the Month Club:
Yellow straw with small head. Slightly cloudy appearance. Aroma is citrusy with some lemons. Nice mouthfeel for this type of beer. Good crisp taste, reminds me of a witbier with the citrus notes. I would have to say this this beer is underrated. For the type of beer that it is, is was surprisely good.

Poured a cloudy orange yellow color with a small bubbly white head. Yeasty, wheaty, slighty citrusy aroma. Carbonated, dry and clean, wheat taste. Crisp finish, I am glad that I drank this before it got too cold outside.

This has become one of my personal favorite styles of beer making my rating of this beer artificially high. Mine was very cold when tasted and it was extremely cloudy when poured and that was not lost even to the bottom. I found it to be a little thin in substance and somewhat citrusy to the taste. When pouring it my expectations were high but were left unmet. I liked it, after all it is a wheat, but not a great one.

This beer was ok. Didn't really like it, smelled bad, and had an off taste. I wouldn't try it again.

Smells of Garbage. Looks good, though. Very cloudy. Tastes malty, yet kinda sour. This could use some syrup. I would not drink this again.

Draught. Pretty decent wheat beer, refreshing hot weather beer, but I've had better ones.

On tap: Hazy, golden color, a quality I love in wheat beers. Citrusy aroma, thin head. Lemony-citrus flavor. Very refreshing, I would recommend with light barbeque fair or after mowing the lawn on a hot day.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2004 Bright gold-orange; almost clear, just slightly hazy; has a thin, non-clinging head. Faintly citric nose. Light and crisp with an active carbonation. Some citrusy undertones. Finishes with a mildly flowery hop bitterness and a hint of tart/sourness. No major off-flavors to complain about, just doesn't do it for me. Though, I'd take it over a Corona any day.

Very nice balanced wheat beer with a very nice malt flavor balanced with wheat tartness. Very nice wheat beer.
