A well made and overall delightful blend of aromas made me expect a stronger flavor body. Not that it was lacking in flavor but it does set a high expectation when the aroma is so rich and colorful.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
First rating for the Wheat Ale style...might as well start with the top-rated beer in this often very light and boring style. 16 ounce can from the 20-can Modern Times box I bought at Costco (a good value at $31.99). Pours a light amber hue with one finger of white foam. AROMA of fragrant fruit (mango, mandarin orange, some peach and lime), honeysuckle and flowers, with a hint of honey/caramel malts. FLAVOR of fruity hops, lighter notes of pine and grassy hops, with some soft wheat and barley malts notes. Hoppy but still soft on the palate and finishes with low to moderate bitterness. Low ABV but great aroma and good flavor...not especially exciting, but I think Modern Times accomplished what they set out to do here in making a super sessionable warm weather beer that far exceeds all the other "wheat" beers.

Tap at Craftheads, Tokyo. Hazy golden shade. Thin white cap. Lightly grassy and tropical fruit aroma. Taste has a nicely bitter tropical linger. This is well made and could probably pass for an IPA, but it’s a shame that you don’t get some of the usual wheat beer characteristics.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned 1/12/15. Pours clear light-ish amber with a ring of large white bubbles. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, flowers, meadow, spice, bubblegum, and a somewhat unfortunate soapy plastic note. Mango and peach reveal themselves, too, but something isn’t quite right. Taste is peach and mango with toasty pale malts and a slightly sweet, piney finish. Almost a sweet almond note at the end. Slightly oily palate. Decent but not a big fan of that aroma.

Extremely yummy. Pours a filtered looking clear golden yellow with a thin white head. The aroma is fresh and zesty with floral and citrus hops. Light malty backbone of nuts and caramel with a crisp toasty wheat malt. Nice citrus hops with lemon zest dominant. Very drinkable and nice moderate bitterness. Sessionable champ!!

First foray with these guys I think. Nice beer more on the hoppy side than the wheat side. Nice light tropical notes. Lemon and tangerine. Grapefruit bitterness. Wheat a bit in the malt profile flavor. Good light refreshing drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours clear gold with a thick white head. Tastes like creamy wheat, smooth hops, light grapefruit, very light pine. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, creamy wheat, light grapefruit, and light pine.

[2/21/15] Draught at Modern Times Flavordome in San Diego. Clear gold. Nice hoppy aroma of overripe tropical fruits. Great flavor full of tropical fruity hops, quite juicy. Light to medium-bodied. Very nice.

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear gold with white head. Nice citrus aroma. Notes of lemon, orange, passion fruit. Taste is also tropical fruits with a little wheat. Not too much of a wheat taste. Very well balanced. Definitely one of the better wheat beers I've had.

Pour is a bright golden with a average white head. Aroma is a zesty hop. Not much of the wheat but plenty of hops. Flavor is a lesser hop but more of the wheat malt makes an appearance. Finish is a bit watery but still a bit citrusy. Decent beer with a great aroma.
