"not bad at all, but it’s a textbook american wheat - ie average. refreshing enough as a summer seasonal. you can taste the wheat, otherwise it was avoidable."

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brilliant, frog emblazoned 650ml bottle from New Beer Distributors, NYC, split with Octo in Barbados on Xmas Eve. Unpromising, soupy pour completely opaque orange with a fleeting attempt at a head. English BC gone wrong aroma; strange, badly behaved yeast, slight pig pen, strawberry and cream Campinos, Twiglets. Tang of sour suggesting things aren’t quite right; rhubarby, redcurranty notes, earthiness, mildew.. stirred with a Twiglet. The dominant note is vomit if I’m honest. Sloppy to flat condition. Dab of warm hinting at alcohol but who knows? 6%? Gutted. One of the poorest US micros I’ve had.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a cloudy golden color with small floaties and almost no head. Boring aroma of honey and wheat. Boring flavor of honey, weat and mild hops. I fail too see any interest in this beer.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty standard wheat ale. Had some on tap at Rattle n Hum. Poured a hazy orange with a slight, white head. Aroma of wheat and some citrus. Mild flavor of wheat, lemon, and some yeast. Light-bodied with nice carbonation, this beer is somewhat refreshing but not terribly complex. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at RnH. Pours a bright hazy orange body with small white head that vanishes quickly, not much lacing. Aroma is sweet candy wheat. The mouthfeel is "tight" carbonation. Sweet flavor is coupled with refreshing wheat, lemon, and maybe some other citrus fruit. A decent session beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 9/21/09
Aroma: Light lemon, a good bit of yeast/bread/grain, light and wheaty
Appearance: Hazy golden-orange, thin white head
Flavor: Fairly light grainy malt flavor with a short duration
Palate: Overly fizzy mouthfeel with a long fizz duration, light-medium body
This beer is decent, but the over-carbonation seems to work against it in my opinion. I really felt that took away from it as it overwhelmed the flavor. Not much of a brew, I gotta say it was just a little dull. Not a typical wheat either. Eh...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin head of varying sized bubbles. Moderate carbonation. Light grassy and lemony aroma with some cereal grains and light spice. Color is a light orange. Dry palate with lots of grainy wheat, rice krispies, citrus and some corriander spicyness. Finishes dry and clean. A good easy drinking summertime brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle. pours a thin white head over a cloudy, golden (SRM 8) body....nose is primarily malty with cereal, hay, bit of clove.....taste is very malt forward, with cereal (grapenuts), cardboard dominating, bit of citrus and mild hop bitterness on the finish...mouth feel is light as is carbonation. A fairly typical "American" wheat, which means lacking the spice of a Hefeweizen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold with a tall, frothy white head.
Citrus hop aroma with a juicy malt base.
Sweet, with light hop bitterness that is well balanced, yet remains malt forward.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber for cheap from City Wide in Mishawaka, IN. Must be an older bottle. Sourish, a tiny bit of wheat sweetness and a lot of hay acidity, reminds me a lot of JP Weizen Bam - a sourish, lactic wheat beer. Ok, quite thirst quenching. style-bending and kind of infected, but good enough.
