COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true "Flussiges Brot" or liquid bread. Malted wheat is carefully blended with the traditional malted barley, and brewed with special hops to create a "Summer Fest" beer. Light and zesty in itself, the beer is served in a tall glass with a slice of lemon.

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!

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 3, 2008
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.

kramer (4688) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2008
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.

Ughsmash (7005) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2008
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.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 12, 2008
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.

17thfloor (2428) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Pours a clear golden with a dismal sudsy head like that of a soda. Strong wheaty aroma, smells like old bread. Flavor is actually pretty decent, sweet wheat, very smooth and glassy. The lagering is very nice. A little bit sour and a good amount of honey. This is a great example of a wheat, it actually features the wheat flavor rather than relying on spices to carry it. Pleasant body with smooth carbonation.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors, Chicago. Clear, light yellow with fizzy white head. Sweet bread malt and a little yeast. Flavor is much the same with some citrus and graininess. Thin, watery and fizzy body. Easy drinking but not anything exciting.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Degarth. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy straw color. Pale wheat aroma. No bitterness to speak of. Slighly spicy bready taste. Moderately sweet. Very watery.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 7, 2008
Pours golden and effervescent with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of bready pale malt, clean lager yeast. Taste is lightly grainy, notes of wheat, bready, toasted malt. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation. A drinkable and malt-centric wheat lager.
