COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gracefully swaying winter wheat donates its mellow, sweet malt and golden appearance. Cool, pristine waters from ancient glaciers provide the base. Rustling Willamette hops extend a subtle bitterness to the beers personality. Taken together, the ingredients create an easily quaffable, unfiltered brew that shares with you a little bit off the tranquility of Northern Michigan in every swallow.

jeremyd365 (124) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Poured golden with a fine grainy nose. Tasted like a standard wheat beer, medium bodied and very drinkable. Nothing bad about this beer, but nothing obscenely great either. A very standard and drinkable wheat. I liked it but not enough to buy it on any regularity.

shrubber85 (9646) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Light lactic lemon, wheat malt, and straw aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet floral orange-lemon, wheat malt, and mildly bitter grass flavor. Pleasant but standard.

Patrickctenchi (5454) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Bottle: Slightly hazed, yellow-gold with a tall, slightly off-white head. A bit skunky.....lemon, wheat aroma. Taste is sweet, but dull and stale wheat malt. Grainy bitter. Not all that good.

Not the best and not the worst. Pretty average all around but very drinkable. Worth trying.

superspak (3992) - Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 7/22/2015. Pours lightly hazy bright golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, light banana, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, and light earthy hops notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, light banana, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, light banana/pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly creamy/bready/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice pale wheat ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

eaglebones (88) - Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy golden yellow with medium white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is strong lemon rind. Thin body and light carbonation. Citrusy but watery flavor. Kind of bland taste overall.

rumproasts (4504) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2014

On draft at Jolly Pumpkin Ann Arbor. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is wheat bread with some light coriander, lemon, and sweetness. Flavor is similar: wheat bread, light coriander, lemon, and some citrusy sweetness. Light in body and nice overall.

b3shine (7412) - Indiana, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; an ever so slightly hazy gold (almost transparent) with white head. Smells of dough and gentle hops. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An easy drinker, but that’s about it.

Ratman197 (12166) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Stubby bottle poured a cloudy gold with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of wheat, yeast and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, yeast and a hint of citrus with a crisp finish.
