Pours hazy yellow with some sediment. Huge fluffy white head that overflowed the glass. Faint smell of lemon, grass and hops. Taste of wheat and some malt with hoppy bitter and slight lemon on the back end with little aftertaste. Slightly above average carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Not my favorite wheat beer. More like an IPA but not bad or too hoppy for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can from Crossroads. Poured a hazy light gold body with an average sized frothy white head. Aroma of dirty earth, bad citrus, dought, bad toast, old fruit. Body is nice, medium to fuller with average to slightly softer carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor is light lemon citrus, earth, bread, toast, slight wheat. Meh, out of the can this will do but as a sipper it falls short.

I had this at my sisters. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Taste slightly hoppy, and lemon. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had at the Tap Room in St. Louis in the summer of 2011 or thereabouts. Decent beer. Didn't let good notes for this.

This beer is a cloudy yet golden straw color when poured into a glass with a minimal white head, but the aroma of the beer is full of floral hops and bready malts. The beer itself is thin, but the actual taste is a little sweet and a little bitter at the same time. Also, the carbonation is quite soft, and the finish is quite abrupt after the initial beer runs down your throat.

12oz bottle. Hoppy wheat ale? Sounds like a nice choice now, late at night after a long day of work (that involved some big beers). Bottled with love on... 3/19/12. Whoops. Less than ideal, but hey at least it’s the same year. Clear yellow color. Big but bubbly, airy white head, that quickly fades. Some bubbly lace. Maybe it’s because of the near-flat Vertical Epics I drank earlier tonight, but this has surprisingly strong carbonation.. Impedes drinkability, drink it too fast and you’ll be burping. Gets easier to drink once it sits for a while, but you’re not supposed to savor wheat beers, right? Zesty, lemony nose. Some bubblegum, light citrus taste. Little lemon grass. Nice zesty sweet, light tart, light bitter taste. Even now, even despite that strong carbonation, this is a pretty decent wheat ale.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a nice wheat malt base with a floral hop. Flavor is more of the wheat with less hops showing through. Its a wheat with a little more hops than average

Pours a very hazy yellow with a huge head that leaves good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is citrusy and grassy and hoppy and inviting and awesome.

The flavor is some great balance between a light hop bitterness, some citrus rind, some rich white bread, some banana, and some grapefruit. The beer is not especially dry, but it finishes both clean and dry.

A nice, hoppy, fruit forward wheat beer. Damned fine.

Medium body, medium color. This is a good ipa. Very standard ipa. Thick lacing. Not too hoppy.
