This pours a light amber color and has a small off white head. It has a strong taste of wheat and a citrus and almost tangy bit of it too. Very easy to drink and goes down with a smooth finish. Somewhat bland and they could have added a lot of flavor making this a much better ale. Very good rendition of a classic wheat ale. Great thing it is locally brewed too.

Tap. Hazy gold pour, small white head. Wheat and light spice on the nose. Bread/wheat taste, but not a lot of character. Drinkable.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Bottle shared by kmweaver on 6/28/08: Pours a transparent golden with a thin, wispy lacing white head. Aroma of pale malted wheat and some mild noble hops. Body starts lightly sweet and slightly doughy with a smooth mildly bitter finish. Pretty bland, but drinkable.

Bottle, batch 8581. Clear amber with creamy white head. Aroma is nice floral and citrus hops with off-dry wheat, some orange fruit. Flavor is medium sweet wheat, citrus, biscuit, honey, light floral hops. Medium, creamy body. Real good, hoppier than Oberon.

Another huge thanks to Mrbunn for this loveliness. Pours a golden dirt color with a quickly dying head. The aroma is of wheat and an odd background of dead fish.Taste is quite bland and uneventful..Decent finish but lacks a whole lot of anything good.

MrBunn (2508) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2009
Bottle. Golden body with just the slightest amount of haziness to it and a thin and ephemeral head. Aromas of wheat and honey with little else. Flavor is similar but there is a little bit of an apple juice sweetness that mixes in to the party.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated and a fair lacing. The aroma was malty and wheat with an off buttery note. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt breads and wheat. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

hotstuff (4275) - Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Bottle. Appearance is a small white head with poor retention, very little lacing, semi-transparent-semi-cloudy, fizzy, fast rising, lively carbonation, and a yellow hue. The aroma was fruity, hint of spicyness, wheat malt, and lightly sweet. The flavor was lightly sweet, wheat malt, fruity, and somewhat refreshing. This beer has a tingly mouthfeel and is medium bodied. A decent beer and one that would qualify as a nice summertime beer.

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 8, 2009
12oz Bottle. Batch #8581. Really intense priming corn sugar, homebrewing supply, and light corn liquid. Somehow clean, but not enticing. Pours a yeast-flecked golden, with a soapy layer of off-white above. Flavor is very, very bland. Some dirty bananas foster, grody yeast character, and wet, soppy malt mess up my mouth. Ugh. Soapy and thin. Not much, wheat, yeast, or alcohol character. Boring, sloppy, and kind of ugly. Thanks Sean!
