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.

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.

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.

ben4321 (4015) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013
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.

ClarkVV (3892) - 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.

On tap at the brewpub on 05/15/2010. Cloudy orange body with a small frothy white head. Light clove and wheat aroma. Big wheat flavor with some dry clove in the finish. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

sonnycheeba (3586) - 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.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2002
Light and delicately hopped. Some bitterness in the finish. Has a ’wholesome’ graininess to it. A little flat and light on the end though.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2007
5th of my 10 tasting flight @ Portsmouth. Pours yellowish with an off white ring head. Nose is light wheat. Taste is wheaty with a tasty full mouth feel. Better than I’d expected.

AirForceHops (3295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 21, 2010
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

Tap at brewery. Orangepeel. Somewhat earthy muddled dough. Herbs. Okay.
