2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Didnít really know what a white ale was last year and loved this. Know what a white ale is now and really canít say that this is one. Light in flavor, some maltiness, smooth, but not much spice (I remember grains of paradise being used last year, not sure if itís there now)or citrus. Refreshing but uninteresting.

Crisp, clean beer. On the light side. Hint of lemon.

A nice, easy wheat. Not over weight, and just a little lemon ízestí as itís called on the label.

What a great beer! Found this to be extremely enjoyable and refreshing. When I first read the label I thought it was going to be another reallysweet beer like the Cherry but (which isnít bad just a little too sweet for my taste), but it had just the right mix of hops and lemon sweetner to make it a wonderful escape from the Florida heat. I also thought the label was really cool as well.

Golden color, but the head was big, beautiful, foamy, and long-lasting. Small/initial taste of wheatiness, followed by a lemon taste (which is just a tad off-balance), and the wheat comes out again in the finish. Quite refreshing to drink on a still, hot Texas day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick foamy head. Aroma of a pencil sharpener with faint traces of lemon. Nice golden hue. Much more lemony of a flavor than the aroma would have you believe. This is a real tasty thirst quencher but a tad too much with the lemon. Has a nice finish though and yea as the description says, this is refreshing.

The acidity seemed to overwhelm this wheat beer, and distract from the other flavors. Good crispness, but not my favorite.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours a hazy light honey. The titanic white super creamy head is very dense and tight, and on the edge of being rocky - pretty much what you would expect of a wheat. The head is fully lasting with good lacing. The subtle nose is mostly grain, toasted cereal, and earthy cheese . Some citrus, perfume and flower aroma is also present. The flavor is very sweet with a touch of tangy. The average finish is bready. The light smooth body is soft and creamy.

Hmm. Very much different from what I was expecting from Sam Adams. Citrusy, light hoppiness, lighter in body then the rest of the beers I have had from them. I must say that I thought it a welcome change from the norm.

Spiced with lemon, wit-ish, watery, good aroma. I quite like it!
