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.

Reid (1944) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Light ,bright golden in appearance, with a nice sized,yet short lived white head. Actually the aroma has a good bit of "wheatiness", grassy with some lemon-spices. The taste is however very weak, just a mere suggestion of wheat to thicken up the wateriness a bit, no bitterness, barely anything. Mouthfeel is boring and watery. Its drinkable but I would rather have a pale lager in the summer than this effort.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2008
22oz bottle-A clear golden body with a small covering for ahead. Aroma of hops, wheat, and grass. Taste of wheat, citrus, and hops. Not bad but still and American wheat.

CapnCascade (116) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2008
Clear golden pour, light white head with some retention. Aroma of yeast and sweet mash. Flavor is on the bland side with a slight malt sweetness to it but largely lives up (or down, I suppose, depending on one’s perspective) to its name. Light sparkly mouthfeel with rather limited personality. Meh. No dice for this one really.

This is good beer. I think it tastes almost identical to Pyramid hefe, but pours a crystal clear. Is just a filtered Pyramid Hefe? You be the Judge.

Dubbercody (213) - Vancouver, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Golden, clear with champagne like bubbles coming up through it. A bit wheaty with a moderately nice nose. Tastes smooth, wheat, creamy with a sweetness. Alright beer, but there are others I would chose first.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Clear golden beer, very slight bubbling, head is 1 inch and lasts a few minutes. Full bodied wheat aroma. Flavor is wheat, full and creamy, maybe a little vanilla, but very creamy. Appeal borders on heavy and refreshing. A small bite on the finish.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2008
12oz bottle pours light wheat yellow in color with a white head, slight chill haze. Nose of musty wheat and grains and a lighter note of moldy, old honey. Flavor is sticky honey sweet malts, light wheat, light dried fruit... not too complex but pleasent enough. Basic semi-sweet honey malt flavor, little to no bitterness. Simple but not bad. Texture is medium to full bodied for the style, somewhat resinous and oily and moderately thick.

Bottle... Not much going for this beer. Poured pale straw with a tiny white head that diminished right away. Aroma of cereal grains and malt. Way too much carbonation that made want to either spit it out or swallow it immediately. Mostly sweet malt flavors and hint of tart wheat characters.
