3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a small white head that mostly diminished, sparse lacing, carbonation, hazy, and a straw yellow hue. Wheat, lemon, yeast, bananas, and clove nose and ditto for the flavor. Tingly mouthfeel and light-medium body. Nice refreshing brew for summer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 Yeasty,aroma of bananas, clove and bread. Not too tart or sweet, flavor of wheat, lemon and hint of banana. Almost a hefe in character. I like the palate-carbo is brisk, medium body and soft mouthfeel. Excellent warm weather beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very good wheat. Clean, crisp refreshing especially on 100 degree days. Comparable to boulevard and a solid contender in this category. 4 very nice beers reviewed that deserve looking into the rest of the Offallon line.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is dark yellow and cloudy. The sediment was stuck to the bottom of the bottle and it required considerable effort to dislodge it. When I poured it in the beer went from pale yellow to a very nice dark and cloudy yellow. Almost no head. Disappointing aroma; much like a pale lager; which must be from the kolsch yeast,and it includes alcohol as well. But it also has some wheat here. Flavor is far better than most of this style. Medium-sweet, and light banana and citrus as well, nearly making this beer a hefeweizen. Almost. On the heavy side for an American wheat. This is about as good as an American wheat can get.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 30/09/2005
Golden coloured with a hazy appearance. Wheat aroma and flavour. Some dryness in a finish that is creamy on the palate.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pear colored hazy body with a nice fat white head. Slightly skunked aroma wet leather nose with a light hint of the wheat. Balsa wood flavor plastic, and a burnt sweetness. Bitter in the finish that lingers. Strangely this isnít as bad as my descriptions leads me to believe. It is drinkable, but just off in a weird way. Could be a bad bottle? Iíll try this again from a different store sometime if I can.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a murky, clouded golden bronze with a frothy, thin-lacing white head. Aroma of lemony citrus and a touch of black pepper. Body starts with a mild doughy pale malty sweetness giving way to tart lemon citrus and a dry, muddled finish. An ok American wheat, but needs some more distinction, and perhaps a little less tartness.
