COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unfiltered, light-bodied American wheat ale is brewed with forty percent wheat malt and just enough hops for tangy, thirst-quenching refreshment. One of our most popular offerings, it is an excellent choice for those looking for a lighter beer.

Cloudy dull tan. Not much head. Lightly wheaty, lightly yeasty aroma. Wheaty palate, slight lemon accent. There’s a hint of tartness late. Clean, simple Am wheat.

Leighton (9849) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a small head. Weak nose, some grass and dough. Delicate flavor, some spice and butter. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Subtle off-flavors. Slightly bitter finish. Could be the beer was in poor condition; if not, then this recipe could use some work.

Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose and taste of lemon, banana, sour wheat, wild yeast and light clove. Medium body. Might be infected, but in a good way.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Pours a hazy amber with a thin white ead. Smells of sweet wheat, some clover, light spice. Tastes ful bodied with some banana and clove elements. Enjoyable.

In short: A light on taste but highly refreshing summer thirst quencher.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Light wheaty nose with a touch of lemon. Taste is light but very pleasant and refreshing. Some pineapples, crisp unsweetened wheat, some other topical fruits, a light lemon presence. Pleasant tartness. A little dryness despite the fruity flavours. Extra non-aggressive. I cannot give super high marks to a beer that is so light on taste. However this is not a bland beer and on the hot-day-refreshing scale this scores very high. This is certainly one of the best inoffensive thirst quencher beer I’ve had. Had this been available up north in my homeland of Montreal I would have drank this all the time during our hot summer days. All three of them.

TaktikMTL (5546) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2007
En fût. Verre de dégustation à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur d’houblons et d’épices. Apparence: La couleur est blonde orangée légèrement voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales avec une pointe de citron. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement crémeuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréale en arrière goût. (Rating #1118)

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Draught, sample @ brewpub. Yellowish and hazy. Nose is subdued. Very nice mellow, rounded flavors, balanced and smooth. Slight hop finish. Sweetness present in beginning rounds out with lingering malt/hop purity in finish. Interesting.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 17, 2002
Rather sour and thin. Seemed too carbonated, even for a weiss. Least impressive of the Portsmouth sampler I tried at the brewery a few nights ago.
