Now this is the type of beer you can drink on a sweltering Texas day right after mowing your acreage and feeling like you deserve a light airy reward. Floral aroma with hints of raspberry. Unfiltered wheat with a delightfully refreshing citrus, mildly yeasty taste. A "close your eyes and smile" sort of beer! Thank you again, jester king! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear light/medium yellow with a large fluffy white head. Sticky, soapy lace. Fragrant, spicy, floral aroma. The flavor is somewhat dry, spicy, softened. Easy drinking, but nothing really going on that interests me.

JBPortland (932) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 26, 2014
750ml bottle thanks to Errl! Pours semi clear orange with big 3 finger head and tons of bubbles. Nose is nice mix of earthy floral fruit, apple, grain, citrus, orange. Taste has nice light body, mixed earthy farm grains, good fruitiness and soft mouthfeel, overall a bit rounded in profile with nothing really jumping out, though perhaps I sat on this bottle too long, still a pleasant easy drinker with nice soft citrus and grain and just a touch of doughy spice.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2014
The beer pours a hazy honey color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and wheat. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet fruit, herbal hops and wheat. The finish is fruity up front with a grassy hops and wheat aftertaste. Above average overall.

TXBadger (1567) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Reviewed from notes, and when this was out, I drank a ton of it. So good. Pours a hazy straw yellow with white head. Hoppy on the nose, citrus, wheat, and some light pine. Finishes clean for the style. Really well done. Very refreshing summer beer, and I hope Jester King makes this again.

ThirstyBird (1707) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd RBBSG. Thanks to 77ships! Pours a hazy apricot color with a big light tan head. The smell is tart, fruity hops, citrus, grass, wheat. The taste is milder than the nose and very nice with citrus, yeast and wheat. The carbonation is active and the bobby light.

Ferris (5008) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle - Wheat and hoppy goodness and a bit of citrus. Cloudy yellow with a creamy white head. Lots of grain and citrusy, juicy hops and a bit of bitterness. Stunning session ale.

Fritz123 (1123) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle shared at Hunahpu Day in Tampa. Pours a golden haze into my snifter with a one finger white head and decent lacing. Aroma of wheat, light fruits, slight spice, and flowers. Taste is light floral hops, light fruits, bread, cereal, and a balanced malt presence. Dry finish with flowers and cereal.

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottled: unk Pours a cloudy blonde ale with a solid sheet of bone whites. Nose is mostly dry with some dust, grain, a bit of resin and citrus - but faint. Flavor is fairly tame with some initial bitterness and then some wheat flavor and some nuttyness that reminds me of Belgian yeast. Thin body et high. Biting carb. Decent beer, nothing special.
