Pretty bland and dry. Not a whole lot to say about this one. If you don’t like flavor, then this bud’s for you.

bhensonb (10733) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle from John’s Market in Portland, OR. Brassy gold color with a slight white head. Aroma of wheat. Hop? Doubtful. Surprising fruit - like apricot. Body is near medium; carbonation is coarse. Finish is light fruit, but some bitter lurks beneath. Refreshing and enjoyable.

cheap (3966) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Aroma is a little different, it has hints of what my mom used to use for a hair permanent. Ubiquitous pale yellow american beer appearance. Slight slaggy taste. Has a coarse obtuse wet hay palate. A little hairy and bitter on the finish. I knew this really wasn’t a crystal weizen as stated on the label, but overall it’s not bad. Perhaps a little too much bitter personality for me.

HoppyGuy (111) - Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a gold color with a full off-white head. Has an aroma of wheat grain, malt and lightly citrus. Taste is thin, fairly forgetable, but not terrible. This beer lacks character and is not bold in any way. But don’t get me wrong--I’d grab one of these long before I would a Bud or a Coors!

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Poured a clear gold color with a one finger white head. Aroma was a very faint wheat smell. Flavor was crisp and clean, but somewhat bland. This makes for a good summer day beer. Not heavy, but refreshing.

carruthm (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2008
on tap at SafeCo, Seattle.
clear darkish yellow with a slight wheat nose and taste. Okay palate. Like many pyramids it lacks a strong nose, taste or follow through.

watered down.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Bottle from Ray’s Food Place in Rogue River, OR. Poured a yellow color and had a sweet malty smell. Tastes of banana and other summer fruits. It went down very clean and smooth on a warm summer day.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy dull yellow with a brief layer of white foam. Nearly no aroma - very faint wheat malt & banana. Tastes very very watery. Minimal carbonation, thin body, not creamy. Drinkable but very watered-down.

djd07 (3326) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is raisin and wheat. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet malt with raisin and banana. Not too much going on with this wheat ale from Pyramid.

IrishBoy (3805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 22, 2008
12 oz bottle from enniskillen; Nose of grain and light banana esters; urine yellow with a medium pale yellow head; flavor has a pepperiness to it, a minor hop bitterness, and light fruity-peachy sweetness. Decent wheat but only very light estery notes.
