2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours just slightly cloudy and golden with minimal head. Weak malty aroma with some hoppiness. Tart sour citrusy body leaves me wondering if I waited too long to drink this. Rather sticky, unbalanced palate has no pronounced flavor other than its tartness. Did I mention it also tastes watered down?

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
So, I generally despise this style, likening it to a glass of Citrona or Olde English 800, but Iíll try to be fair on this occasion. A crisp, dry semi-wheaty brew greets your lips. Not great, and not all that wheaty. Why does anyone drink American Wheats? - oops, Iím forgetting to be fair. Anyway, lots of carbo and boring as hell. I expect more from the excellent Great Divide Brewery.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2003 Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with light notes of orange and DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Disappointing...biting carbo, macro-like aroma, and the flavor profile includes a mildly foul aftertaste. By far the worst product from this otherwise good brewery.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy piss yellow, slimy white head. Faint aroma, faint taste, faint everything. Thereís that funny artificial sweet/sour flavor again...I think Iíve found the first brewery whose beers I donít like, across the board.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The typical wheat beer flavors came as a mild aftertaste deep in the throat. Weak head and lace, good color not as cloudy as most wheat beers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Indeed, a good wheat beer. Toasty wheat, spice, and champagne in the aroma. Malty flavor, the wheat was somewhat muted by the complexities in the smell. Hint of skunkiness in the smell which reappears in the finish, still a good beer though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
unlike any wheat I have had before...aroma was of yeast and white wine. The taste was very full and complex with spice and a friendly malt taste. the finsih left something to be desired though rather acidic with an almost adjunct malt taste which lingered.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hazy straw color with a minimal fluffy off white head. Acidic malt aroma. Light taffy flavors along with mild malt. Bitter and acidic in the finish. Finish is a bit rough makes me want another - of something else.
