Hint of honey and cream in the nose. This is like a ale infused pilsner. Lite in aroma and flavor reminiscent of pilsner. However there are notes of the stronger ale style. Im pleasantly surprised by this and Im liking it quite a bit.

llcooldave (1102) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Slight sour milk odor. For a crystal wheat, it’s a bit cloudy with a lemon yellow color to it. Kind of a clean crisp malt flavor. Overall it’s OK, but nothing too outstanding...

fidelis83 (1975) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Pours pale gold with a thin creamy white head. Aroma is wheat, grassy and citrus hops, and a bit peppery. Flavor is wheaty, some lemon, white pepper, grassy hops, and a little crusty white bread. FInish is crisp, wheat and grass. Body is thin and slick with a nice fizz balance. Would be a great summer beer, can’t knock the beer for the fact that it is definitely not.

scooterbub (841) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a decent, active, frothy, white head that lasts. Taste is of wheat, yeast, grass and some citrus. Has a light wheat aroma. Oily body. Light, clean, refreshing and easy to drink. Would be great on a hot day and is worth getting when on sale. On a side note, I liked this beer better from the bottle.

Strykzone (5009) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Clear gold with a good amount of visible carbonation. Small white fizzy head that lasts about a minute and becomes a thin uneven layer. Nose is honey and yeast but is not substantial. Flavor is also thin with some malt, corn, fruit and a funky bitterness. Fizzy and watery feel. An underwhelming beer.

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Pour is a clear yellow with an average head. Aroma is a nice malt with some grass. Flavor has a little citrus to it but overall very watery. Nothing really to this one.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 20, 2008
11.17.08 Bottle. Pours clear yellow, thin white head. Aroma is faint malt and fruit. Flavor is malty, fruity, slighty hoppy, bubbly, or maybe I just notice the bubbles given the flavor. It’s on the girly side. Not awful. Pretty watery and light, but maybe this would be good for someone who likes diet-light flavored beers.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2008
(bottle): Pours a clear dark yellow body. Big foamy head, off-white and diminishing. Malty and effervescent aroma. Sweet smelling with some light fruit like apple or pear. Some maltiness present too. Light fruity taste, light body. Nutty aftertaste. Tasty and aromatic.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle from BevMo. Clear golden color upon pouring. Slightly sweet grainy aroma. Smells like your average American Wheat. Tastes like a million other wheat ales. Grainy with a little bit of spiciness. Drinkable, but uninspired.

ilovedarkbeer (2300) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Very weak. Pale yellow hazy color. Nose is grass corn and slight citrus. Taste is sugar, adjuncts, and stale wheat. Goes down easy because the mouthfeel is watery.
