3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from the Woodmans on Gammon Road, Madison WI (December 2006), studiously savored from a Unibroue glass a little above fridge temperature. It pours out with a gigantic foamy head which were it a bit more stable would make one swear this was a German hefe, not its lowly American cousin, but alas the foam is a quick-falling shell, huge-bubbled and off-white atop the almost clear apricot-gold body; more evidence of living yeast remains in the bottle than shows up in the pour...still, not unattractive.....the aroma is very, very faint, lightly bready and sour, hints of banana mash and a waft of tart cherry, and some pleasant if brief blushes of farmy, grassy character....on the tongue at first there’s that pleasant balance of pale German malt and noble hops that always signifies pils to me, but gradually some wheat sourness creeps in and the hoppiness fades quickly....the malt thickens and sweetens and a strong honey tone shows up, at midpalate it’s thick and juicy and just a bit fruit with tart apples and apricots, but it quickly dries out and thins a bit too much with a light but noticeable metallic touch at the finish....low but appropriate carbonation....this ends up being fairly pleasant and drinkable, though crisp is pushing it a bit, a little too sweet and thick in the middle for me though the first taste is something of a treat. The first beer (of 4) I’ve had from this brewery that I’d buy again.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
An initially massive, off white head settles fast over a mostly dead, hazy-golden body (future pours produce less lather). Adjuncts and sulfur are difficult to ignore in the aroma, but there is a sour, lagered, yeasty-wheatishness beneath. Tart and nutty flavor has a sweetly malted presence that finally redeems this brew. Thin mouthfeel with a slight prickle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy straw color. Brief white head that reduces to a trace of film. Slim lace. Very mild sweetish wheat aroma.
Drier wheat flavor, with a sweeter fruitiness for balance. Very nearly medium bodied. Very light carbonation - feels a bit flat or watery. Drinkable? Yes. Better ones out there? Yes.
It just isn’t lively.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very hazy muted yellow mustard color with a pretty large head floating on top. Nose is yeasty with some citrus. Flavor is kind of like liquid citrus bread, and the yeast is dominant. It is missing many flavors that are traditional of this style. Not unpleasent, just not anything special. Thanks to tjthresh for this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Number two from the "We Love Beer" sampler. I wish this beer was consistantly good - I’ve had it very good and very bad. This one was not one of the better ones. Pours dull hazy yellow with a pillowy white head. There is a faint aroma that has some sweetness and spice. Medium / thin body with a lot of sharp fizzy carbonation. Starts with a spritzy blast of carbonation with some lemon characteristics along with sourness and astingency. The finish has lots of spice and a lingering medicinal taste. Fair at best.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a three finger cream head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Almost cloudy light amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Yeasty nose. Starts with a wheat/doughy and yeast flavor but uninspiring, finish is clean. $1.49 for a 12oz bottle from John’s Grocery Iowa City, IA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
O’Fallon Unfiltered Wheat
12 oz bottle
Medium pour in a goblet
Recent brewing, filtered 11/06
Poured a hazy yellow with an average size fizzy white quickly diminishing head.
Smelt of light flowery wheat and grain.
Taste was upfront light sweet white bread followed by a weird light bitter dirty grain taste on a short finish. Palate was light bodied, watery and fizzy.
Overall, a pretty bland average wheat beer. As boring as the label.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy typically carbonated light . The aroma was wheat and slightly acidic. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy wheat aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt hops and wheat. An OK brew just nothing special.
