2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy straw yellow with a large white soapy crown that fades back into the aggressive looking concoction below. Aroma of perfumed malts, wheat and light honey. Taste of, hang on a second, holy carbonation. Overpowering on the tongue, just a bit too prickly and that’s one hell of a foamy palate. Anyway, taste of honey, sweet malt, wheat, mild fruit and honey.

Good wheat beer, being from the Iowa City area Ive always enjoyed millstream brews. But nothing over the top.

Bottle courtesy of pepsican. Pours a hazy amber with sparse white bubbles. Smells of smells citrussy with some wheat hints. Tastes citrusy with a weird aerosol like finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
totally clear, without head, and light orange. smell is plain, slightly wheatish, but actually pretty lagerish and infectedish. flavor is mouth-grimacing. quite sweet.... it really nails the style of ’shitty american wheat’ perfectly.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
thanks pepsi. golden pour. small white head. aroma is very plain. almost smells more like a lager than a wheat ale. flavor reminds me of a wheat but is too grainy and watered down.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to hopdog for this bottle. Pours a mostly translucent golden with a small bubbly white head, not much lacing. Aroma of lemon, some bready/wheat notes but not a whole lot more. Flavor of light wheat, a little bready and lemon zest. This was freshing...but a bit too watery and lacking in aroma and flavor. I think I’m going to bust into some Honey Hot Peanuts and hopefully this will help take the burn off my tongue!

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Pours pale, very slightly hazy peach. Thin white head that fades rather quickly but leaves some lacing before its completely gone. Aroma of grass, yeast, wheat, butterscotch and fresh cut rhubarb. Flavor is somewhat wheaty, sweet, general fruity notes, light bready yeast, a hint of pepper, a little plain lettuce spiciness ame some nice light planty hops toward the finish. Thin and a little under carbonated for the style. Refreshing, but overall uninteresting. Good for the hot and humid summer days, I guess.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow body with a very fizzy white head that vanished quickly. The nose is grassy wheat with a bit of cooked veggies and pale malt. The flavor is very thin and watery with just a light wheat base and a slight lemony accent. A touch of banana esters come out on the lingering finish. The body is thin and watery with very prickly fizzy carbonation. Devoid of character in almost every aspect.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured clear bright golden with lots of rising carbonation and a short-lived cap of white. The aroma picked up dry pale malts and vegetal notes upfront with some wheat that didn’t really do anything for it. The flavor had the same pale malts along with honey at the core.. wheat gave a subtle tartness.. some vegetal notes and cardboard joined honey on the finish.. nothing really good here. Lighter-bodied and dry on the palate with some tacky spots.. meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee - No head to speak of. Smells like fresh rain on a dirty rock. Crispy, sharp taste. The bottle says it is actually a wheat lager, not an ale.
