Formerly Kansas City Unfiltered Wheat. I am posting my old review as this is the beer, but someone decided to post a new listing. Now called Original Wheat beer with a new label and company. I also had this before under the old company. This is a slightly cloudy gold color with a large white head. Aroma is lemons and some grass. A hint of banana under those scents. The taste is a slightly skunky dirt and leaves. Hints of honey. Not bad for an American Wheat.

crystal clear yellow golden with almost no head. the head is almost non-existent. the aroma is lightly wheaty but overall very neutral. the flavor is also pretty plain. some citrus and a tiny bit of banana but not much. not offensive just very plain and boring. quaffable for sure though.

Pours a three finger, white head that fades to a ring leaving no lace. Almost cloudy light amber color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Light citrus nose. Starts as weak lemony/hoppy flavor no wheat or yeast, clean finish. $1.39 for a 12oz bottle from John’s Grocery Iowa City, IA.

Aroma is like a piece of chewed bubblegum laying out on the sidewalk that has been stepped on a few times. Kind of dirty tasting, with some moldy fruit notes and toasted wheat cereal maltiness.

A cloudy dark yellow appearance. A lemon and bubblegum aroma. The flavor is very crisp with a doughy presence. Some cloves, lemons, limes, and wheat bread in the flavor. I dont like American Wheats but this is a good example of the style. This would be great for a hot day picnic or such. Not bad at all. Sampled from a Playboy chalice.

12 oz. bottle. Golden color. The aroma has a bit of corn in it so that wasn’t too pleasant. The flavor was fairly clean though but didn’t really have that nice wheat taste (either from the malt or yeast--i.e. clove, banana). It was a bit bland overall. Maybe it didn’t travel well with the beer of the month club.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2006 A particularly uninspired wheat...virtually no hefe characteristics...no banana, no clove, precious little wheat. I missed out on the offensive particulates, thank god! I would suggest that Frankenkitty rinse out his glasses in between pints every once in a great while! That was just plain offensive!

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2006 I got this beer from my beer club and as such was not sure what to expect here. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very cloudy (lots of floaters) orange-gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is crisp and wheaty with a spicy hop element. The flavor is sweet and richly malty with light fruity hops and an almost orange flavored element underlying. The finish is sweet and malty. A rather nice beer.

Small white head fair retention, small amount of spotty lace. Seriously hazy, classic wheat color. Yeasty nose, light fruitiness. Body is light, light creaminess. Yeasty flavor, wheat malt hidden underneath, doughy. Finish is dry. Thanks Degarth!

Pours a hazy orange with a billowy white, creamy head. Aroma is extremely mild, a little citrus and cereal. Flavor is actually interesting, considering the style. It starts typical and fairly malty, but then theres some tasty hop pepper, mild spices, citrus, and a dry finish. As american wheats go, this one is on point. Better than expected.
