COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered and easy-drinking, our wheat beer is graced with a lively mouthfeel, light body and delicate citrus character. Rapidly refreshing.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Very good wheat beer. I’m surprised to see the rating at a somewhat low 2.55. Great taste, slightly sweet and very refreshing, with more than a slight malt character. Decent color and aroma. A quality beer.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - SEP 22, 2002
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.

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

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 28, 2004
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.

Not much to describe the flavor other than old grapefruit, orange candy and milk. Strange it seems, a light and creamy texture with a sour citrus and wheat finish. Overall very sweet with a lingering flavor of orange cream.

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.
