COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional summer wheat beer marries a west coast Pale ale. Brewed with locally grown wheat, providing a complex mouthfeel, and single-hopped and generously dry-hopped with Amarillo, creating a glorious citrusy aroma and finish. The approachable 5% abv makes this the perfect session beer on a summer day.

clear golden pour thin frothy white head with notes of grassy hops on the nose. good amount of wheat flavor, earthy hops and some slight malty sweetness... pretty refreshing.. nice blend of wheat and hops.

Floral hops predominate with earthy tones that make this a really special summer beer. Makes me wish summer would never end.

rjplumer (405) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Spicy grapefruit citrus aroma jumps at you. Clear amber color with moderate bubbled head. Light bitterness and heavy on the sourness.Some lemon in the background. Sour finish. Its OK but too impressive. On a side note: the brewers labels seem to be on he cheap bargain basement type and doesnt make a great first impression.

12 oz bottle. Surprisingly hoppy. Not to bad of a beer, but nothing special. Hops seem to be just there to be hoppy. Not a real smooth hop. I dont taste the wheat at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (1768) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, best enjoyed before November 2014, poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear pale yellow with small/medium white head. Aroma is stronger floral hops, medium/light body, medium/light carbonation, and big bubble lacing. Taste is floral (reminds me of dandelion) crisp hops with bitter finish. American wheat beer with pilsner characteristics with quite a bit of flavor, but not my thing.

Had from a bottle at home. Decent beer but nothing to get too excited about. Average.

Reviewed from notes. I poured this into a pint glass. The appearance was a decent clear yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly died and left some light lacing sliding down the glass. The smell was citrusy and piney bitterness. Some light wheaty-ness did come in as it warmed. The taste was packed with long lasting piney/citrus flavoring. The aftertaste took that and brought out a lot of lemon in that lead to a dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium and had a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat harsh but not overbearing for the style. Overall, not a bad American Pale Wheat Ale, but not exactly one Id really want again either.

Straw colored ale with clear appearance and a good one finger white head. Floral and slightly citrus nose. Grain profile is slight obscured by appropriate measure of Amarillo hops. Wheat profile comes out the aftertaste. Overall, a great taste and drinkable beer... but higher ABV than a true session.

Draft one week ago at Sweetlife concert. Served in a plastic cup, pale yellow color with white head. Aroma of wheat male and citrusy hops. Taste adds notes of lemon/grapefuity hop bitterness, grainy and yeasty. Light body, moderate carbonation, light with clean finish. Tasty easy drinking wheat ale.
