COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is light in body and mild on hopping, but is not wimpy in taste. The yeast we leave in adds a delicate floral and citrus flavor and enhances the beer’s mouthfeel.

BBB63 (5964) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Slighty hazy yellow hue with little head or lace. The aroma hints of buttered biscuit, toasted malts, mild grapefruit, leathery yeast esters, and some spice. The taste has a malty sweetness with an acidic and fruity undertone. Little on the finish. Fizzy and doughy mouthfeel, dry. A poorly made wheat with little in common with the genre.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2004 This beer is the shit. My ex-girlfriend's dad used to brew wheat beer and we used to get totally drunk off it. This was exactly how it tasted, great. She cheated on me and left me and I miss her dad.

This one was a very plain and boring version of an american wheat. This beer never really goes anywhere and is really kind of a mix in styles if you want my opinion. Has some nice hoppiness to it, that was enjoyable. Very citrusy and coming through with lots of lemony fruitiness. I think this one would be better under better circumstances.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2003
Rated Boulder Colorado July 31, 2003. Typical hazy honey tending to blonde colour with small white short lasting head head, Mild, grainy stale sourdough and soap aromas. Mild pleasant bitter floral hoppy start. Maybe it's a style thing but to me it lacks sufficient of that slight sour citric character compared to a traditional wheat. Finish is a bit too flat and dull for my taste

Cloudy yellow; decent head; average nose. Not too shabby- lacks the bubble gum character that I love.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Good head and decent lace. Light on the spice but heavy on the citrus. Typical cloudy wheat. Vacation 03

TAR (2444) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2003
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.

bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2003
Cloudy slightly orange pour with a thin head. Average nose of citrus and floral elements. A bit below average on the wheat scale.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2003
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.
