COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With more than 30 years of fermentation experience and an award-winning reputation in the industry, our line of hand-crafted brews embody the satisfying bold taste you've come to expect from The Round Barn. An unpretetentious American pale wheat beer, our Summer Wheat pours a cloudy golden-orange, just like a sunset over Lake Michigan. Its assertive wheat flavor is complimented with hints of citrus zest. Garnish with a slice of orange or lemon. Round Barn beer is bottle conditioned, decant into a weizen glass before drinking for the best taste experience.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Rated on 10-25-2010. This bottled beer pours a medium sized very fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, transparent yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, wheat, citrus hops, musty, and some fruitiness. The taste is semi-sweet, malty, wheat, lightly fruity, and citrus hops. The mouth feel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has no WOW factor to it and the flavor is somewhat bland tasting. There are better beers of this style.

HonkeyBra (3255) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2013
12 oz bottle, from rating notes. Pours a hazed golden pour with a styrofoam white head. Aroma of citrus zest, wheat malt, touches of bread and lemon. Flavor is mostly citrus, mild bitterness with wheat sweetness. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel with effervescent carbonation. Overall, middling at best wheat ale.

Strykzone (4811) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2013
12 ounce bottle. This is hazy golden and has active carbonation. The head begins fizzy and noisy and ends in a fluffy white foam. Some banana and clove in the aroma but not a lot. Those are tasted along with earth. The banana esters are prominent with yeast and wheat. A decent beer.

DrSilverworm (6003) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2013
12oz bottle from Super Liquor III. Shared with robotopera. Mostly hazy golden color. Kind of bubbly white head. Good retention, but no lace. Whoa - pretty strong, soft carbonation, no wonder it pours with such a big head. Medium body. Sort of dry finish. Some decent hefe flavors. Some bananaish yeast, bit of banana, light vanilla. Nice zestiness. Some lemon citrus. Was conflicted on this, off-putting at first, but actually not too bad once the carbonation dies down a bit. A lot of yeast profile. I like it, but it was too much for robotopera. Let it rest for a while and it turns into an OK hefe though

7/26/13 bottle 3rd beer from pro/am beer swap. Was expecting another dud but this was a good one. Weak nose until it warmed up a bit. Taste was very clean and crisp. Nice citrus taste. Very good summer beer one of the better ones ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wmubronco1992 (603) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours yellow with a small fizzy head that fads fast. Mild citrus aroma. Flavor mainly of wheat with some citrus. Decent beer for a hot summer day. Not offensive at all, but probably just an average wheat beer.

strongpieman (1462) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle. Light golden color with average head. Clear, not much flavor, a little underwhelming. Nothing offensive but nothing overly memorable either.

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of light wheat, bread, citrus, and a hint of orange peel. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a one finger white head that is somewhat fizzy and fades rather quickly to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is minimal lacing left behind. The flavor starts with light wheat and bready notes. The finish has some light orange, faint lemon, and a touch of spice. It’s light-medium bodied with somewhat fizzy carbonation. Overall, it’s not bad...just a little on the bland side. It could work okay as a thirst quenching summer beer.

umich03jm (1811) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy light yellow color with a small foamy head that lingers a bit. Aroma is lemons, oranges, bread, and spices. Taste is better than I expected. Very bready and wheaty but there’s a very nice orange and lemon citrus taste too. Spicy finish. Fairly thick mouthfeel, almost chewy. Solid wheat beer.
