I rather liked this beer. Slightly bitter and hoppy, somewhat dry. The best part was the tasty and dry finish, it leaves you wanting more. Definitely earns a 5 on palate.

The quality of this beer has diminished over time. I was very disappointed. In previous years, I remember this to have been an outstanding beer. I wouldn’t buy it again.

A tinge of alcohol in the nose. Smooth start with a dirty, uncomplex front. Off tap, front is clean, nearly tasteless. Character not apparent until the relatively clean finish. Drinkable, but lacks the flavorful notes of an Edelweiss. Decent summer brew, but this is one of those beers that should really be had on tap. This rating is assuming a bottle tasting. A good 3.3 off tap.

pretty good, I like it without the lemon. I still do not get that. It is like putting steak sauce on a steak, you hide the flavor.

Fine cloudy golden color, very smooth taste, slightly bitter. This is a fine wheat beer but not a true hefeweizen.

Very little yeasty estery twang that is characteristic of most hefes. Light bodied with a slight hop bitterness. I may have to rerate this someday because the bartender put a lemon slice in it without me asking for it.

Really refreshing. Pleasant smell.... almost flowery.... light yet delicious in a true wheat beer way. Can’t go wrong, and it’s not too expensive either. Goody goody.
