Sampled from 12 oz bottle on 10/25/2006 at the Junedale Beer Klub meeting...
Pale gold color, cloudy. Big, foamy white head. Generic wheat aroma and flavor. A light doughy. Quite fizzy on the palatte.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, sampled at the brewery. Definitely more substantial than the Trailhead wheat I had earlier in the day. A golden color. decent taste of American wheat beer with no esters. a slight lemon flavor builds up toward the end.4

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Growler’s Pub. Very faint aroma, just some slight sweetness. Lightly hazy golden yellow color, with a sparse head and no lacing. Flavor is very basic; sweet up front, followed by some faintly lemony citrus and finishing sweet and lightly sugary. Light, watery body, somewhat flat. Dreadfully dull.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is an ok American wheat. It has a watery mouthfeel, but with a surprising amount of citrus and wheat flavor. Overly sweet.

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.

12oz bottle. Hazy golden hue. Spiral white head. Grainy, wheaty, citrusy aromas. Light and crisp. Grainy and bready. Citrus notes, orange and lemon. Nice banana yeast flavor. Off-dry with a crisp easy drinking smoothness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden body... slight haze, head disappears almost immediately. Aromas are yeasty, crisp and maybe there’s a slight hint of lemon in the background. Flavor has a bit more of a crispness and a slightly tart quality to it than I expected. The sourness balances well with the yeasty wheat presence and, while not exactly a tour de force of intricacy, it’s servicable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, dull lemon hue with sinking yeasty chunks and a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of clove, bubble gum, mild citrus, and a note of alcohol. Flavor is of orange juice, mild banana esters, and lightly sweet wheat. Medium body with significant carbonation. A decent American-made hefeweizen in my book. Thanks Eric.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) remarkably clear gold for an unfiltered beer. Small white head. Faint wheat yeast aroma. Flavor is mild yeast and some yeast, maybe a bit of citrus. Not bad, but nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased at Gomer’s Midtown in Kansas City, MO in June ’05. This is an example of a beer whose quality you cannot judge by its cover. The label is about as basic as can be; something you could create on cheap graphics software. Not a bad aroma. At first whiff, it is slightly tart and citrusy. Second sniff, fuller and fruitier. Doesn’t really have the banana or clove thing going on. Crystal clear gold until the end of the bottle is swirled and dumped into the rest of the beer. It then becomes cloudy, dark urine yellow. Even though I poured it into a pilsener glass, which is known for creating big head, the head was only average in size and quickly dissipated, and eventually became nonexistent. Pretty good flavor. A well above average unfiltered American hefe. Fairly full-bodied, pleasant and enjoyable. Not sure what the shelf life is of this brew, but I bought it in late June and am consuming it in early September. I’m wondering if it would be better, livlier, when fresh. Still, I enjoyed it.
