2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft, Boulder CO: Served as a hazy honey colour with a small white head. Very faint honey floral and lighter citrus aroma. Medium to thin watery body. Mild shortish bitter start with hints of grassy and floral hops. Kinda fades significantly from there onwards with a bland grassy bitter hoppy finish and aftertaste. I'm not at all impressed by these American wheats.

Bottled. Hazy amber gold, good creamy white head and moderate condition. Faintly aromatic spicy wheat nose, thin and tangy in the mouth with a low banana wheaty note. Earthy and chalky finish with a slight lingering burn on the lips.

Draft, at House of Blues, Chicago. So, HoB won't be known as a "beer bar" anytime soon. Ten taps, the usual suspects, regular Sam and this seasonal. So…
A good choice in such a place. The nose is subdued, just a trace of weiss odor. Head is thin, becomes nice and lacy. Color is hazy yellow like a good wheat beer. Lemon taste is definitely there, some spiciness. Worth tasting in season, though not a "craft brew" type anymore. If you got a skunked bottle, try to find it in draft.

Wheaty, lemony/citric, refreshing Summer Brew, lots of laceing, making me drunk, I like, must drink more, “it’s Friday night and I’m feeling right; This is how we do it.”

Kind of bland, but a nice summer refresher. Slightly lemoy, but I almost couldnt tell. More sour than lemon taste. Decent beer, but not as good as the normal sam adams stuff.

A nice lemony flavor that goes along with the citrus flavor. A little bitter for a summer ale but still not bad. Good with salty food.

A straight forward american wheat. Citrus hoppy flavors. A nice american wheat but I prefer german wheats.

Nice light amber color, not much else. Not terrible, OK lawnmowing beer...I wouldn't care if I ever had it again.
