Appearance: Delicately hazed, pale straw-colored body with a smallish, fizzy, white head. Smell: Aroma of lemon-scented hops, a hint of dried, pressed flowers and wheat malt with a side note of grains. Taste: A simple start of malted wheat with a touch of raw, crisp grains. Medium-light sweetness. Citrus flavor akin to taking a lick of a sliced lemon. Light bitterness. Sweetish, lightly grainy, lemony finish with a final zip of carbonation. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: A standard though sufficient wheat ale that could easily pair with a wide variety of foods due to its easy-going nature.

Sample at Decatur Beer Fest. Very champagne like texture with a dancing bubble carbonation. The wheat is faint and at a pleasant level to let a couple other flavors come through. Some bannana and a grassy hop profile round things out.

Lightly hazed yellow/gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Light clove, wheat, and paper. Wheaty malt, paper, and a semi sweet finish. Medium bodied and a bit fizzy but not a bad beer.

GTAEgeek (1239) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a bright, hazy gold with a very thin head and no lacing. The aroma is lemons, lime, wheat, and white bread. The flavor is citrus sweetness and a little tartness. The palate is light to medium, acidic, and a little sticky. There is a long, sour aftertaste, but it is mild and kinda nice. Overall, this is a nice wheat ale. Nothing too surprising, but well made.

8/06/2011: Jail House Slammer Wheat... Aroma: Mild citrus along with some white wheat and yeast. Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow color with a frothy off-white head. Flavor: Bright, lemony with some spice; soured wheatiness; no bitterness to mention. Palate: Fairly light, crisp, really refreshing. Overall: Quite tasty; a bit different and unexpected; very drinkable.

22 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 5% by Vol.) shared by decateurstevo. Thanks! Rating #60 for this beer.

Bottle thanks to TheBeerSommelier! Light effervescent pour, lasting head and a light pear and slightly sweet citrus aroma. Flavor is light hay, slightly sweet lemongrass and finished slightly bitter and creamy on the finish. Not my favorite style, but not bad!

First, this is not as good as the Breakout Stout and Iím actually a fan of good wheats. That being said, I havenít had anything in a long time thatís as good as the Breakout Stout. The wheat character in this is nice. Fairly crisp and pure. Thereís a very light tartness typical of wheats and a mild clove. Thereís something very slightly vegetal in the finish, but this is an excellent chugging beer. Wheat beers like this donít cover up flaws at all. This is a good brewer.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet with some citrus and wheat. Flavor is also sweet with hints of grass, lemon, wheat, and orange. A good wheat beer, will be much more enjoyable in the summer.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2011
22oz bomber. Pours yellow/straw with medium-sized white head. Aroma is grassy with touches of wheat, grainy pilsner malt, and a subtle note of fruity esters. Flavor is malty with pleasant touch of breadiness, graininess, and delicate hop flavor. Balanced bready finish with touch of bitterness and doughy malt. Mouthfeel is medium in body with a pleasant slippery quality and a moderate (somewhat lower than expected?) level of carbonation. Overall, not bad (better than I expected).
