COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An unfiltered Light American Wheat beer. It has a light, sweet taste with a hint of fruitiness. The wheat adds a slightly earthy or grainy dimension to this crisp and refreshing brew. ABV=4.5% O.G.=1040 IBU=13

Draft to taster at Half Moon. Looks solid; a slightly hazy gold with thin white lacing. Smells of wheat and a hint of lemon. Tastes like it smells, but blander and without the lemon, with a touch of grain. Solid on the palate. An easy drinker, but unmemorable.

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.

Hazy yellow with a soapy head. Scent is wheat, lemon. Taste is malty, creamy, lemon and wheat. Very mild.

Growler, Lemon, yeast and wheat malt aroma. Hazy pale yellow with nice head. Light lemon, yeast, and strong wheat/barley malt flavor. Nice body. Very good - really like the malt flavor.

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 :)

patrick767 (3573) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2008
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.

jsquire (3479) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2008
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.

Tmoney99 (10722) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2008
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.

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.
