Ugh this beer has nothing. I’d rather have a Blue Moon. Avoid if possible.The only thing saving this is good bar convo at the Sapphire Lounge in Spokane.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy golden, small head. Mustard seed aroma. Sweet and fruity, light bodied with some butter and vanilla but not a lot of substance. Low bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample at brewery. Opaque yellow orange, frothy white head. Aroma is so mild that I have a hard time naming anything- maybe a hint of earth. Taste is similarly bland but I can at least find some citrus and wheat. Medium light body, lively carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy milky yellow white pour w a nice head. Lemony crisp wheaty nose with a touch of honey. Light wheat honey flavors. Crisp lemon finish creates a good quenching summer beer. If it was barrel aged with brett I might like it more. Maybe about 6 percent more alcohol next time would make me give it a 5.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At the Davenport Hotel in the Peacock Room on draft, this came a hazy yellow with a nice white head, and light lacing. Nose of banana, and citrus. Light mouthfeel. Flavor is light malts with a touch of wheat. Not much finish. Easy to drink, and OK for a light summer beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Summer beer on tap in november could be dangerous but the beer was fine. Straw colour, no real haze, and a slightly citric sour aroma. Flavour was light and hte wheat was hardly present. Not a great offering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at the brewery. Aroma is grainy, yeasty, slightly sour. Very complex, I could pick out almost all the components of real bread. Still, not the best aroma, as the strength was very low. Appearance is light straw yellow with a low white head. Flavor is a balance of yeast, malt and low bittering forward. Beer is well balanced with a sweet and sour background and additional notes of bread wheat and grain. Mouthfeel is light bodied, thin with a strong carb feel. Slightly spritzy with a low sour finish. Overall, there’s a lot of great complexity but the hef is just too thin. A little less water for sparging or added to the boil and this could be truly excellent, but definitely worth trying now.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fifth stop during the ABA Beer Tour ’07 in Spokane, Washington. Sampled on tap at the brewpub. Pours a semi-hazy golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head. No lacing on glass side. Aroma of wheat and multi-grain malt, some citrus and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is light bodied, lightly carbonated and a dry wheat flavor. Finish is a little watery with a mild sweet hop aftertaste.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Only slightly more haze than mass-produced filtered lager. The wheat flavor is almost indistiguishable. The flavor overall is very mild. When poured, there is hardly any head at all.
