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.

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.

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.

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.

3.6 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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle-pours a cloudy apricot hue with a small fizzy white head. grainy, husky wheat character with faint hops and a very dry yeast note. good wheat flavors with lots of yeast-dry. light hops. fairly solid palate for this style-only minimally watery. i think this would be much better on tap. This beer will be revisitied. some more hop bitterness would be a plus as well.
