3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single bottle from Binnyís. Pours a big bubbly head in a narrow 312 glass. Slightly spicy American Wheat smell. Taste has a bit of umami to it, later on I get a note of ale fruitiness. Mostly European hops, I think, with a finish of American cones. Small amount of sediment on the bottom gives the last inch or two in the glass a lot of floaties and a slight yeasty character. I find it pleasant.

Iím glad I picked up only a single bottle at the grocery store. Not that this beer is repulsive in any way. Thereís just not much to it. It looks fine, a hazy yellow body with a slender creamy head and provides thin legs of slippery lace. The aroma is almost water, simply a small whiff of sweetened bread dough. Have i mentioned that this is watery, yet? If not, itís watery. The flavor is VERY light, some dough, some sugar, a touch of zesty bitterness (quite mild) near the watery finish. No mas!

Pour thanks to nielsenratings. Aroma is artificially orange, like tang even. Flavor is like orange and stewed vegetables. Weird, but not super shitty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle offered @ gmellison. Got this bad boy in a trade. Thanks Adam. A bit hazy golden orange appearance with a white head. Orange juice / tang, citrusy aroma. Slightly acidic. Flavor is full of orange juice with some herbal notes. A bit bready. Quick aftertaste. Pretty drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a light cloudy orangish color from the battle with light wheat, clove and water. Flavors are the same with a slight offensive flavor that made this a pretty bad wheat beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale Clear Yellow Color, Huge Bubbly Foam Head, Lots Of Lacing. Not Much Of an Aroma, very faint fruity notes with clove. Tastes sweet, wheat, clove and light peppery hop bitter. Mellow, easy drinker. Somewhat reminds me of a Belgian Ale. Nothing Fancy but up my alley, style wise. OK.
Yet another Local Brewer that is not too far and I wish to find time to go visit.
Most important thing that I took away from this beer - Jarrett Payton is a Social Butterfly...If I am somewhat on the opposite side of the scale, what does it make me?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden sparkling pour, light white bubbly head. Aroma has a light lemony accent to it, a touch of grassiness. Flavor has a light citrus bent to it, a hint of bubble gum, a trace of coriander spiciness. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it. Not bad at all.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UK golden ale aroma - light diacetyl, I suspect Goldings. Clear, yellow. Self-aggrandizing label. Overbrewed and astringent, a little briny, citrus pith. Medium body, long and annoying astringent finish. Sucks, sucks bad. ABC, Bull Run.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear light gold with a huge cap of frothy white head. Aroma of dark wheat with a little orange citrus. Taste is light bitter. Hsrbal hops dominate with a little wheat on the end. Light bodied with a slick yet sticky texture. Fizzy carbonation and a long, kinda gross finish. Meh, not very good

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Purchased at Binnyís in Chicago, IL; enjoyed after a good work week, first Friday Iíve had at home in a long time. Since I used to go to school w/ this guy, and he was a nice guy, I figured Iíd try out this brew that bears his family name (see what I did there...). Sorry but this beer just sucks. When I opened the bottle, foam exploded out and I had to let it sit for about a minute before it started to calm down. Appearance is a cloudy moderate gold with an annoyingly large while head. Aroma of clove, wheat, ale yeast. Taste is very carbonated, goes down like sparkling water, tastes somewhat like a Belgian wheat which is a bit odd. Iím not a fan, good guy, but a bad brew.
