3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
Thought this was a solid, but unspectacular wheat ale. It is thirst quenching and easy to drink. Solid.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light and delicately hopped. Some bitterness in the finish. Has a ’wholesome’ graininess to it. A little flat and light on the end though.
