Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2008
12oz bottle. Wheat and honey aromas. Darker yellow than the noramal staw body color with white head. Starchy zesty soapy lemon flavors. Sticky sweet honey lingers for aftertaste. Blah.

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Bottle. Dissappearing white head leaves an applejuice color body with the slightest bit of haze. Aroma of sweet corn and wheat. Tastes very grainy. Medium thin body is refreshing but has moderate carbonation prick and leaves a slightly bitter sliickness on the tongue.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Bottle. Pours a yellow with a little white head. Smells of wheat, citrus and malt. Taste is the same, wheat, citrus, and a hint of orange. This is definately a summer beer. Very light easy drinking beer.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle: Visions of light golden effervescense, nose is light wheat, some malt, flavor is light also, some wheat, malt and yeast... an easy drinking quaffer, a decent upgrade from the macro lagers, won’t blindside a newbie.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2008
A delicious and very refreshing wheat ale. Aroma was so so. Grass with a hint of light malt. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was a nice mix of tartness and a hint of citrus. The strong carbonation overpowers the beer in a good way and makes the beer great in hot weather.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Medium gold body with a bright white head. the aroma is light cream of wheat with hints of lemon drops. The taste is bananas with lots of clove spice in the finish. This has more character thanI was expecting. A relatively thick and sticky mouthfeel, surprising as this is a filtered wheat brew. Decent.

badgerben (4362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Gold color with a medium head. Light lemon aroma. Light wheat flavor. When I say "light wheat flavor" here, I really mean: barely detectable. And really, that’s about it. It’s like Miller High Life with two sprinkles of wheat.
