4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is ranked a little low by my estimation. This isnít the most unqiue wheat I ever had but itís a solid example of the style. Nicely fruity without being to easty. Very drinkable and I would gladly have another bottle of it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, medium straw color. Small white head. Aroma finds light wheat, plenty of grain/dough, honey. Flavor much the same, but a bit sweeter, more citrusy notes. Light, crisp, creamy, and refreshing. Mild dryness. A good backyard beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wheaty, citrus, maybe a little barnyard, basement. Taste is light, wheat, some citrus. Alright for a wheat beer, a little disappointing. Something you could drink all day and boy think much of.

Not bad for a light beer. Iíve had better wheats, but Iíve had worse, as well. I might buy again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
DATE TASTED: January 25, 2014... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner...OCCASION: finishing Clash of Kings, I believe... APPEARANCE: hazy, bubbly, thin-headed sallow gold body; nondescript otherwise; no lacing... AROMA: somewhat pungent, lemon dish detergent scent; some lager malts provide a backbone; slightest banana and apple... PALATE: medium-bodied slightly effervescent; almost sudsy in its aftertaste--fizzy...TASTE: such subtle flavors--lightly lemon; predominantly metallic ping akin to a pilsner; lacking a refreshing, clean drag--just dragging... OVERALL: I understand the attempt is a wheat ale, but Wheat Monkey straddles the styles without pulling the better elements of either into my mouth; instead, itís more like monkeying around, making use of a playful label and silly enough name to attract attention--by far the weakest of what was a successful mix pack...

Pours a hazy yellow with a smallish head. Slight aroma of citrus with some bready malts. Not a bad beer, but very pedestrian.

Blah. Not very sweet like a typical wheat and finishes with a very mild bitterness from its citrus ingredients. Trying to add a baked bread flavor to this one was a mistake. Pretty disappointing.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tasted on 12/2/13 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours hazy pale orange with a thin white head that leaves thin lace. The nose is really not giving me much but some white bread and very lightly fruity yeast. The flavor is the same with some very light fruity notes and unassuming white bread. The body is just under medium with very lively carbonation and no real finish to speak of.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow, small white head, no retention to speak of. Nose is slightly fruity, hint of clove and cider. Mouth is light, watery and has a flavor reminiscent of Cutty Sark after a lot of ice cubes have melted in it. bread an lemon at finish. Not awful, just not anything worth saying any more about. A slight cut above the beer(s) that made Brew City famous.
