3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange color with a 1inch white head that leaves minimal lacing as it dissipates on a weizen glass.
Smell is great. Great wheat smell with a good bit of orange.
Taste is really nice. Has a sweetness up front with the maltiness kicking in during the middle of the taste then a ever so slight bit of hops at the end.
Mouthfeel is pretty good with a nice carbonation to it.
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Purchased as part of a Sam Adams 12 pack of Summer beers at a Publix in Savannah, GA. A great appearance and flavor for me. American Pale Wheat Ale is a style that I greatly enjoy and this was a real pleasure to try. A great beer for a multiple beer event in the summer time.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle found buried in back of fridge. Pour slight hazy lemon yellow. Nose light citrus, dank hop, and hint of pepper. Taste mix of tropical fruit and spice up front. Mid palate very sweet then mild grainy malt. All in all, a surprising mix of flavors. Perhaps the age helped or the fact that I’m starving.

Not much of an aroma just a hint of pepper. Gold colour with a short lasting white head. Not much taste, slightly peppery with mineral undertones. Watery feel with a dry mineral finish

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Appearance: Slightly hazy body that is a medium shade of golden yellow with a fluffy white head that leaves ample lacing.
Aroma: It has a sickly sour aroma that is not very inviting. There is a bit of lemon zest but not very fresh smelling.
Taste: There are some good qualities and some bad. I put it this way because at first I really did not like this drink, but some of it started to warm up to me. There is this flavor that tastes a bit like what I can only assume dishwater tastes like. There is this lemon twang and this muddy mess of sickly tasting flavors like old vegetables in the refrigerator. On a positive note there is a smooth wheat flavor that tries to come to the rescue at the end. If I had a 2 second memory I would probably really enjoy this beer.
Palate: The palate for this beer is pretty bad. The combination of flavors makes it undrinkable to me.
Overall: I find this to be a beer of poor quality that I would not recommend or drink again.

It’s pretty good, it’s got that warm summer time flavor that every brewery tries to hit, but it’s not perfect. maybe a little bit too wheaty?

Rated based on notes taken 23 Apr 2012 -- This is an okay summer brew, meant to be refreshing, it suffices but doesn’t excel.

11th July 2014 sees me on Balboa Island in Newport Beach, the women folk are shopping and I am thirsty, so the only option is the ’Village Pub’, the trendy, expensive and foodie place on the main drag. In here the tap selection is truly crap for a beer hunter, so I had this and a ’Rebel IPA’. Anyway this hazy, slightly sour and citrusy brew was refreshing and just what I needed at the time. Did not really test my taste buds but it did not upset them either. I am not a huge Wheat Ale sort of guy, but I have no problems with this.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Very refreshing and aptly named beverage. Pleasant citrusy acidity and tartness with a little bit of peppery spice. Clean and light.
