UPDATED: FEB 18, 2007 Sampled from a Party Pig (plastic mini-keg). Strong sour wheat malt and lemon aroma. Clear golden yellow color with large head. Light sour wheat malt flavor. A very nice Am wheat - one of the better ones.

To me, it kind of says something about a brewery when theyíre thinking up what to brew for their "light" beer and the answer is "Letís make something thatís 1/3 rye, 1/3 wheat, and 1/3 2-row barley. This is the least flavorful of their beer, but still has a nice malt profile with a bit of spiciness from the rye. The hops provide a tempting little tingle to the mix to make for a nice little beer.

A nice wheat based blonde ale, this one poured without a lot of excitement (small to no head with no lacing). The aroma was of sweat light wheat, maybe yeast (probably not). The flavor was excellent, definitely malty (again wheat detectable) with a touch of hop zing in the finish (some citrus, light peppery). Great balance and good flavor and not destroyed by a mouthfull of Ameican hops, like many others Stateside. Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied for just a wheat based "blonde."

Another beer at the Mellow Mushroom. This was the first and the least enjoyed. The wheat beers are not for my palate. The yellow color was clear and a nice head. I just was not impressed. I moved on to Amber Jacques.

On tap. The aroma is unpleasant, but once you start drinking it it develops a bit, and becomes quite enjoyable. There is no unpleasant sourness, which is a huge plus. Very crisp and refreshing; unusual for a wheat beer. Theyíve done a good job of creating a light, crisp, wheat beer that still has some complexity to the flavour. Thatís quite impressive if you ask me. I would pick this one over many other American wheat beers, with the sole exception of Great Lakesí.

Good beer, but kind of weak. Basically a low calorie wheat beer. I definitely prefer Lazy Magnoliaís Blue Heron and Indian Summer which are both wheat beers, but much better.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 Tap: This is not a bad beer. I am not big on wheats, but this one is surprising. It has a nice spice smell to it as it warms. It is a nice summer beer

Party Pig. Golden-colored and mostly clear. Good head but, it dissipates quickly. Crisp, with a slightly bitter after-taste. Thin mouth feel. Has a wheaty aroma. Not nearly as good as the Blue Heron.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
From a Party Pig. Poured a slightly cloudy golden color with a light white head. Very slight lacing. Very pleasant malty caramel aroma. Above average mouthfeel. Flavor was pretty wheaty, with a malty kick to it. A lot better than I expected, especially since Iím not a big wheat ale fan. But this is a solid wheat beer.
