3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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."

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. They’ve done a good job of creating a light, crisp, wheat beer that still has some complexity to the flavour. That’s quite impressive if you ask me. I would pick this one over many other American wheat beers, with the sole exception of Great Lakes’.

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 I’m not a big wheat ale fan. But this is a solid wheat beer.

Not bad, but not nearly as good as Lazy Magnolia’s other specialty, Southern Pecan. Hardly any head, and not much body to speak of either. It’s smooth and looks good, and it’s definitely not bitter. Still, it leaves quite a bit to be desired -- especially when you consider how good Southern Pecan is.

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 they’re thinking up what to brew for their "light" beer and the answer is "Let’s make something that’s 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.

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

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

Techinically a wheat beer - but it’s only 1/3 wheat. This beer is promoted as their version of light beer - the craft answer to BMC.
It pours a very light gold color without much of a head. It was more similar to an American light lager than an ale. Not very strong - not much malt or hop flavor. Very light and easy to drink.

This beer has its good and bad days for me. It’s a bit on the sour side, but pretty good if you’re ready to throw a bunch back.
