2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden color... not the best wheat beer that I have had, but not close to the worst. Aroma is of wheat and citrus. A little to light on the grain bill, and too strong on the citrus, but it would be refreshing on a hot summer day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typical for a wheat. Light refreshing character for both aroma and flavor. Notes of wheat, yeast, fruity citrus esters and yeast again. Nice on a hot summer day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
In the bottle from HyVee CB. Pours a lightly cloudy maize gold with a medium thick white head that lasts a long time. Mixed aroma of part vegetable and part corn and part wheat. Light body and flavor with a splash of lemon tartness and a grainy husky bite to the finish. Not for me. Why not go ahead and put nude art on the label?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold with light, fizzy white head / Nose of sour malt and lemon / Light to medium body, good malt and hop balance, with fair finish / Fresh, bright flavors of lemon, sour malt, and wheat / Very nice effort by Point, usually a cut above the main stream brewers.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample at beer tasting. Had a light yellow appearance not too different from a pale lager. Smells of grain and a hint of hops. Taste is really pretty dull; bready, but in a cheap rather than enjoyable way. This is a small notch above standard American macro brews; I could see it being drinkable in the summer if nothing else was available, but that’s really the only time anyone would ever need it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
$1.19 for a single at Orland Park Binnys. Pours murky orange with a fluffy white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is of malt, wheat, hops, and caramel. Taste is of light hops with notes of citrus and wheat. Not nearly as earthy as I had anticipated. Has an almost unrecognizable caramel malt backbone that is very faint in each sip. Lingering wheat flavor. Mouthfeel is way over carbonated, coming of almost like a soda. Inoffensive to the pallate, but not overly enjoyable. Dissapointing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a milky light gold with a 1-2 finger creamy white head that has pretty poor retention, but seems to hold at a thin skim. Aroma is wheat, sourdough, lemon peel, hints of planty and citrus hops. Flavor is heavy on yeasty bread dough, a little pepper, lemon and orange zests, a touch of lime and some spices. Finish is bread and spices. Palate is thin and dusty with a good amount of carbonation. Just your average wheat ale, though a little hoppier than many, which is nice but not really enough to save it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Single bottle buy from the Binny’s in Orland Park, IL: It poured a hazy pale straw body with a short head. The aroma was bready with a touch of Wheaties. It had an added touch of tart citrus in the flavor with a touch of zest at the end. Okay, but there’s lots of better Summer drinks... and they don’t have stupid names.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle courtesy of Headbanger) - Color is a hazy yellow with a touch of orange. Carbonation is good with a thin tight head. Aroma of grain and honey. Taste is creamy and sweet. Starting with a light body it goes down easy with a creamy feel. Finish is sweet with flavors of bread, honey, a touch of citrus and hint of coriander. After taste is clean leaving you with a fresh feel. Overall this is a good wheat, nice flavor, well balanced and refreshing. This one is much better then there Horizon Wheat.
