3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy from the bottle like a wheat ale, but more orange in color. There is very good lacing and head retention. Lemony aroma, but not too bad (I prefer to drink my wheats without fruit, but this was already in the aroma). Mouthfeel is very dry with a very clean finish. Very nice touch. The flavor is somewhat spicy, not really citrusy. What are "grains of paradise" anyway? I really liked this offering from Sam Adams.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Basically no aroma on this one at all. Pours a lackluster yellow with an off-white head. Flavor is bitter but not in a good way. This beer doesn’t have much going for it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap@Jolly Scholar, Cleveland, USA. Light/medium aroma with honey, citrus and some fruits. Fresh. Light yellow color with small artificially white head and hazy liquid. Medium taste with citrus and fruits. Narrow taste spectrum and short aftertaste with fruits. Light/medium body with high/medium carbonation. Overall, bit artificial and lame, still refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample @ Giant Eagle Market District. Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat and lemon zest. Strong flavor of wheat with a little spicy pepper. Little to no carbonation. Kind of flat with a warm dry finish. Not at all like a good Weizenbier. Blah.

Draught. Oatey with a light citrus hit. Tastes more calorific than terrific.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from draft. Pours a murky orange with nice white head. Good lacing. Aroma is lemon, orange and tropical fruits. Taste is moderately sweet with fruity notes. You do get a faint peppery taste at the end with some orange, lemon, mango flavors. Not too bad. Definitely better than blue moon.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-ounce bottles poured into a pilsner glass. Not bad, but pretty average compared to other Sam Adams’ offerings. A little thin, but just right for drinking on its own in warm weather. Not the best beer to have along with a meal.

This one takes me back. Back to summers when I was a 21 year old in New England, thinking this was as inventive as beer could get. "Actual lemon zest in the beer?? These guys are CRAZY!" Coming back to it now, it’s still entertaining and it actually does taste pretty good on a hot day. But there’s no denying that it’s also a bit of a bitter, muddied mess. Thanks for the memories, though, Sam!

Originally rated on 5/19/08. A slightly above average beer all the way around, its flavor had hints of lemon and was slightly peppery. A light body but not watery. all and all its worth a try.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nice fresh lemon zest with hints of grain. Easy to drink, a bit grainy, very refreshing. Sweetish malty fresh with a smooth lemon fresh aftertaste. Nice refreshing!
