JMerritt (1844) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2002
Hazy, muddy appearance. Aroma is citrusy and yeasty. Flavor, however, was a bit weak. Front-end was somewhat sweet, with a low yeast flavor. Immediate aftertaste is just a bit sour, but mostly watery. Just an ’ok’ beer.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2002
Aroma typically wheaten but very light. Color a cloudy yellow-gold with average head---some lace...Flavor features the signature wheat aspects of concurrent sweetness and tang, although both are very muted in this brew. Hops are also very light. Body is adequate, and the finish is just a tapered version of the main body. There is nothing objectionable about this offering, but nothing very memorable either. This is one instance in which I might recommend the lemon to perk-up a fairly drab profile.

Good beer overall, I bought this one on a whim. It has a weird smell to it, and makes you think twice about drinking it. A good taste though, and a plesently suprising aftertaste.

Not as original as I once remembered it being....I guess that’s my tastes changing and not the beer. All of the good hefe flavors are there, but just not enough slap in the face for me. I will still take it over many hefes out there.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2002
Not terribly exciting for a wheat beer. Trying to aspire for more than an American styled wheat beer I think. Light citrusy notes and some hops, with a thin wheat flavor that kind of disappointed me ab it. But still quite drinkable.

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2002
UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (basement), with a note of detergent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Grainy, soapy, almost swill-like.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2003 Not outstanding or even good in any catagory. An unremarkable albeit a drinkable beer. Save you money.

Definately better than most domestic hefes. A good choice. Clovey, cloudy. Enjoy and go watch the Mariners game!
