3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 Hazy light peach skin hue. Patchy, frothed white foam. Clean aroma of lemongrass, subtle citric hop, must, leather, dough, mango, white grape, cracked wheat, caramel, and toasted coconut. Stylistic prickly carbonation. Flavors of white grape, vague earthiness, hint of perfume, and lemon. Concluding well balanced, with a light tingling acidity, soft pale malt backbone, buttery/filmy yeast flares, and tangy lemon cake. This executes appropriate balance and crisp, moderately complex flavors. Lacking heft in the aroma and body areas, but the flavor is okay.

Very Sweet taste, with a strong citrus note at the end. Very cloudy. Overall, a good representation of the wheat beer style.

Cloudy slightly orange pour with a thin head. Average nose of citrus and floral elements. A bit below average on the wheat scale.

Nice hazy body, golden color. Fair amount of carbonation. Citrus in the flavor. Somewhat "blah", but probably good on a hot summer day, just too bad that I drank it on a snowy day in March.

Acquired via trade. This is possibly the least wheaty Wheat beer I have tried. Pours a very foggy orangish-yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma of light hops, straw, and citrus. The flavor is very light and carbonated and was more reminiscent of a Lager than a Wheat. Strange. Tasted of mellow hops and not much else. Dry finish. Not very impressed with this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (lemon, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Finally got around to re-rating and didn't find this to have any of the complexity or interesting qualities I'd found a year ago. That's how it goes with bottle conditioning sometimes, I suppose. Nice enough still, but nothing special.

Just a smooth drinkin’ wheat. I liked the thick head and the very carbonated aspect (at least it was this way on draft).

Not bad, just nothing outstanding. Definite floral bouquet going on here, otherwise kind of thin on taste. Way too carbonated for my preference.

I just drank one and my mouth feels like it has pop rocks in it. This is crazy,I rate it about an 89 octane, good enough for Acuras, Chevys, and Mazdas, but not up to par with the Porsches, BMWs, or Ferraris of beers

On tap GABF ’02: Murky amber color is the best part about this. American wheat beers almost always piss me off. I mean if you can’t use the right yeast, then why bother. (Volgon steps off soapbox)
