3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub
A fairly run of the mill wheat ale is not bad but not great. Falling somewhere along the middle of the spectrum it is a drinkable session beer worth a four ounce sample at least.
Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent golden base is contrasted by a stark white head. Malt and wheat stir up a mixture of old lemons and fruit sorbet.
Flavor / Palate - Lemon butter spread over toasted whole wheat slices is flavorful but simple. A light tang is present in the finish to add honey drizzled over a slice of lemon. It is not the most complex of beers. Despite having had worse I would probably skip it if I ever revisited Kokomo.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
appearance is cloudy wheat, aroma is light lemon, hops, wheat. light hops/lemon taste, very drinkable. Very good light drink offering. like an upland wheat with less hops. Could drink a growler of this to myself on a summer evening, but it’s always good to share great beer :)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
brewpub sampler - Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head and a very mild wheat aroma. The flavor is sweet and has some citrus. It’s sweet with a thin, watery palate. The finish is clean and the overall impression is of a decidedly lacking wheat ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the sampler at the brewpub. Hazy straw color with a light cereal nose. Not much in the flavor. Some puffed wheat with a thin grainy finish. This is a pretty pointless beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured a hazy yellow color with a moderate fizzy white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Medium citrus wheat aroma. Light to medium body. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. Another drinkable soft beer that met my expectations.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of bubbles that were and left behind a slightly hazy softly carbonated straw yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The almost non-existant aroma was wheat. The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt and wheat. Not one that I would likely buy again.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at the brewery and rated on 5/5/07. Small white head that mostly diminished with virtually no lacing, minimal carbonation, cloudy, and a pale yellow hue. Nose was sweet and a hint of banana. Ditto for the flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Light body. Again, more aroma and flavor is very much needed for the brew. Missed the mark on this one. Not a good representation of this style. No character. Dull and boring.
