COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hazy and golden in color, this brew is a fresh twist on the popular Hefeweizen style. Eureka and Lisbon lemons, from three growing regions in California, balance out the wheat malt character, resulting in a crisp and refreshing wheat ale with subtle lemon flavor. Cheers!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange body with white lacing. Aroma is nothing. Flavor is pretty boring, nothing but a slight lemon flavor with some funk. BORING.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Twelve ounce bottle from a grocery in Maynardville, Tn. Pours a dirty golden body with a tall offwhite head that quckly falls to a cap. Aroma of lemon zest and wheat cracker. Light medium body with crisp carbonation. Taste is yeasty, with a wheat twang and lots of lemon zest. Some wheat cracker. Overly yeasty, which hurts drinkabiltiy.

Mushroomy barley nose. Cloudy golden, no head. Flavor is mainly coriander, but a bit soapy. Stale wheat does appear in the finish. Sessionable, crisp, and refreshing. Decent value.

hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Hazy golden body with a nice white head that leaves thin lacing. Lemon, wheat, and yeast dominate the aroma. High carbonation, yet smooth and easy to drink. Big lemon on the flavor. Starts sweet like lemonade and finishes borderline puckering. A nice addition to the Samuel Adams collection.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 1, 2009
12oz brown bottle obtained at Hannaford in Derry. Pours a murky golden yellow body with nearly an inch of off-white head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Smells very lemony and pithy, with just a hint of vanilla. Tastes rather lemony too, with pith and zest joining juice in the flavor. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Relatively drinkable. Not bad, but rather one-dimensional and the lemon gets to be a little much after a while. One was more than enough for me.

I light bodied wheat. Very subtle palate. Not a great beer but it is refreshing and light. .

Dark yellow-orange, tight whitish foam. Aroma is strange lemon zest, some wheat body. Taste is again wheat, bland, light, lemon tang.

It was great drinking this while watching the Cowboys dismantle the Panthers. Poured a nice golden hazy glass with decent head. Nice carbonation. Flavor of lemon,wheat and yeast. Enjoyable.

tmoreau (2562) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Sampled at Famous Liquors Fall /Oktoberfest Tasting in Lombard,IL.. Poured to plastic a cloudy, straw hue, with modest, white foam and lacing. The aroma was floral and light grain. The flavor followed these with some light lemon tartness and dry texture. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation and somewhat thin.

Thank goodness I can buy singles, I couldn’t bear the thought of having to drink a six pack of this.Some "wheaty" notes, some hints of orange and spice, maybe a little smokey note. Fairly undistinguished.
