3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours from the bottle with a bright yellow-orange color. The aroma is a light mix of musty yet bright hop bitterness, a little lemon, and some earthy wheat. The flavor largely features a biscuity, almost tangy, light malt sweetness, but there is also a bit of dry, herbal hops to balance. Like the flavor, the texture is light but not too thin. Overall, this beer is light and drinkable, but it has a nice mild yet varied flavor profile.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Reviewed from old notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head.
The aroma had a light deep wheatiness that kinda covers up everything else no matter how many times I had this.
The taste was basically the same that comes across fairly bland.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a hard to put down sessionability - too much wheat perhaps.
Overall, uh...for me I’m not a fan, probably wouldn’t come back to.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear deep golden with two finger white head. Aroma is caramel malt/crisp hops, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is lots of caramel malt and crisp hop finish. Not very hoppy for an American wheat ale, wouldn’t go out of my way to revisit this.

355ml bottle. Pale gold pour. This one is absolute water. In the bud light fashion, if you want an easy-drinkign summer thirst quencher wheat beer reach for an anderson valley gose.

Had this on the fourth of July in variety pack. Very light wheat beer. Not a lot to write home about.

Drank from twelve ounce bottle. Great aromas of citrus and a hint of grassy aromas. A decent summer brew. Not high up on my list for Magic Hat.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy yellow, some white head. Wheaty aroma ha yeast and lemon hints. Crisp, wheaty flavor has a sweet lemon (yes, sweet lemon!) underpinning. Texture has decent fizz and respectable viscosity. Good for taking the edge off a hot, humid Boston day.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light. Crisp. Pretty dull. This is a beer for a hot day outside where you need more hydration than flavor.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is one of those American wheat ales which was an old brewpub standby which they would sell to meek and dainty womenfolk who did not like strong beer. I am not sure that is the most delicate way to put that but, hey, don’t shoot the messenger. This is a perfectly clear golden beer w/ a long-lasting head of fine bubbles. It’s nose is of grain husk and bread yeast along w/ some grassy hops. This comes off as a little bit on the sweetside but that is mostly because there is not much bitterness. It smells pretty nice but it tastes a little flabby w/o much substance. A crisp bite of carbonation keeps it lively enough to be interesting though. Finish is just a lingering bit of sweetness w/ some nutty malts on the tongue. There is nothing really wrong w/ this beer and I enjoy the style despite my initial comment but this is frankly just forgettable.
