COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with flaked barley and the finest Wisconsin malts. We even give a nod to our farmers with a little hint of corn. Naturally cloudy we allow the yeast to remain in the bottle to enhance fullness of flavors, which can not be duplicated otherwise. Expect this Ale to be fun, fruity and satisfying.

Aroma is strong with corriander, tangerines and a little oak. Aroma is very amlty once this warms up. Barely any head out of the bottle. The body has a cloudy, gold orange color. Reminds me of a Belgian white beer in appearance and aroma. The taste is largely oranges and corriander. Fairly light, but very drinkable.

Pours cloudy with a lemon color. Small disappating head. Not an attractive looking beer, but it tastes ok. Lemon in the flavor, subtle and tasty. A good summer beer, if you keep it in the bottle.

Draught; Final Sour - Stevens Point, WI: nice, cloudy amber pour with a thin white head. Fruity, citrus aroma with a decent hop profile. Creamy palate has a lot to offer the ‘easy drinking’ beer lover. I didn’t mind the beer, but I wasn’t expecting much – light beer, with a decent flavour and smooth palate.

hazy straw color, lightly hoppy floral nose. tangy, slightly malty, but thin body. bitter, lasting finish....not great.

12oz. bottle: The pour was a bit of a suprise: it is a bit of a hazy, light golden color, with a large white head. The head dies down quickly, but it does look like a Belgian Wit. There is a bit of a wheat nose to the beer. Also, I get some spiciness and citrus, albeit faint. It has most of the taste characteristics of a Wit, but it is a thin and watery version of one. OK, but it should be more potent. Just average.

This is Hoegaarden-meets-Budweiser. At one level, there are some very attractive elements. The yeast in the glass imparts that attractive haziness to the otherwise light yellow color that makes me love Belgian ales, and the aroma suggests some slightly fruity, slightly spicy notes. Yes, there are some obvious problems with this beer. Most importantly, the palate is desparately weak, being watery with only half-baked carbonation, insufficient to drive home the "zing" you would have expected. The flavor is severely muted, such that the slightly fruity, slightly spicy notes are lost to an American Standard-like wash of sweetness and nondescript grains. This beer is easy to drink, but there just enough to it.

Again, pours a light pissy-yellow, with no head. Aroma and flavour are both a little bland, but it's a little wheaty, and not nearly as bad as the totally naked.

Beer pours medium golden with a little cloudiness and a nice egg white head that is lightly retained. The aroma is somewhat macroish, though there is some light yeastiness with just a little spice. Flavor is rather indistinct with a bit of oatiness and a bit of corn syrup in the finish. Decent session type beer. The kind of beer I'm sure a lot of people would not mind drining every day, I'm just not one of them.
