2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.6 oz bottle (why not give me 12?) Heavily carbonated with a crisp mouth feel. I’d prefer it to have a smoother feel. Tastes of grain/bread and light citrus but does not linger.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Served right out of the tall beer fridge and served in a small snifter. Lemon and grassy hops are dominant in the aroma with a backing of light pils malt, maybe a hint of candi sugar. There is an omnipresent sourness or tartness that seems a bit out of place. Initial taste is sweet, lightly kilned malt, some sort of slight adjunct, some fresh citrus, and a slight spice. Citrus persists into the finish. Itís certainly a refreshing beer and somewhat tasty. It seems like a saison with out the saison yeast. I appreciate the attempt here, but why not shoot for an authentic farmhouse ale?

I read Farmhouse Ale on the lable but in reality itís realy crappy wheat beer. At least thats the closest thing I could think of. Donít waste your money on it.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2008 Pours a pale yellow with a fluffy head. Aroma is sour, a bit funky at first, but settles. Thereís also some grain, some corn, some grass. Taste is bready, very earthy. Also watery. Light body, lots of carbonation, but overall kind of disgusting.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured Cloudy yellow with no head. Grainy aroma. Taste - citrus and malt with a cloying sweetness. Not very good in my opinion.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Grainy, grassy, sweet malt liquor nose. A little sticky metal, less citrus. Dirty straw pour, big creamy white head with good duration and retention. Light body with pale malt. Cloying taste, thin and corny with husky grain and easing off into a bready taste. Crisp carbonation but it spends its load too quickly. Light perfume, some old, rotting fruit, and a whole lot of turn-offs. Not exactly clean.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with lots of carbonation and white head. The aroma has pale malt, creaminess, corn and light spice. Medium / light body that unlikely slick with moderate carbonation. The flavor starts off fair with aroma traits, but then there is artificial sweetener aspect that kicks in. While this is not totally revolting, itís not really pleasant either. Iíll probably just save this for non-beer geek friends.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden color. Aroma is skunk, corn, and a bit of citrus. Taste is about the same. Tastes like a Miller Chill with some nutty malts. Better than what I expected, which wasnít much.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Many of the previous reviews havenít been particularly favorable, but if you simply need a beer to unwind with, some easy drinking, this will fit the bill. It isnít by any means a beer for connoisseurs, but then I donít think thatís what anyone expects either. What it is: namely, an easy to drink golden ale with average flavors. I didnít have any problems with over-carbonation, or an under-impressive head, like some reviewers did.
At first, I even found the aroma strangely enticing, with the obvious caramel and citrus scent besides the subtler corn scent, and those flavors carry the first taste. It closes with a slightly nutty/toasted finish. The problem is when you continue to drink it -- itís something of a sloppy beer, and the fruit (some banana even?) and caramel overpower what could be a clean, simple wheat beer. That said, if you just need a beer for lounging on the couch with football or a movie, or a beer for an afternoon of playing cards, thisíll work.
