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.

Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 7/12/13

Aroma: The aroma of this beer is wheat and spice, with malty notes and light hops
Appearance: It pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head on it
Flavor: The taste is much the same, wheat-forward, leans sweet, with some balancing bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has an average carbonation, and a decent mouthfeel
Overall Impression: Thought this was a solid, but unspectacular wheat ale. It is thirst quenching and easy to drink. Solid.

Thin with sweet bubblegum upfront turning slightly sour before the lasting sour hay finish. 6/3/6/3/12

On Tap at the 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. Decent

Sampled at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of light wheat, light malts, and some floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad wheat ale.

ClarkVV (4620) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2004
2004 draught. Bright golden color, quite cloudy as mentioned. Fairly typical american wheat appearance. Aroma is light and spicy, some hops, light yeast. Flavor is thick and chewy wheatiness, moderate citrus notes and moderately sweet. Finish changes things up and becomes dry and lightly astringent. Pretty interesting flavors, but none of them are terribly powerful or lingering. Medium body, quite effervescent.

sonnycheeba (4512) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at brewery. Pours hazy gold with average, creamy off-white head; short retention and some lacing. Aroma is banana, cookie and cereal malts, cloves, floral hops, and light toast. Flavor is sweet, bready malts forward with supporting grassy hops, light fruit esters, herbs, and light grapefruit; dry finish. Light body and low carbonation.

muzzlehatch (4420) - 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.

BuckeyeBoy (4068) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 15, 2010
On tap at Portsmouth brewpub. Pours out a cloudy golden color topped with a small white head. Aroma was of wheat, grain, and a little lemon zest. Taste was much the same with the wheat leading the way.
