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

Lemon shandy meets saison meets wheat ale. Fairly Sharp, bright, crisp. Wouldn’t buy again

White frothy head, cloudy, lite golden, nice head retention and lacing. Floral, fruity, wheat, and citrus aroma. Lite bodied, citrus, lemony. Ok balance, medium bitterness, lite sour, and dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TH28 (237) - - JAN 10, 2015
Appearance: Pale yellow and cloudy, with minimal white head. Aroma: Intense floral, lemon, grassy, perfume like hop aromas. Taste: Light, cracker malt flavor that gives way to a strong hop bitterness and hints of grapefruit, grass, and herbal hop flavors. Mouthfeel: Light body considering wheat base, with a high carbonation. Finish: Crisp and dry with a light citrus acidity and tartness. Overall: Love the hop aroma of this beer. Taste is less complex and flavorful than I was expecting with the aroma, but typical of an American Wheat. Must be lots of dry hopping. Solid AW.

16oz growler from Whole Foods Falls Church. Pours a hazy yellow with lots of frothy, white head. Nose has a cool balance of hef-y qualities, bananas, clove, yeast and floral, fruity hoppy notes. Flavors follows along, again, well balanced, quite a bit of fruit, both starchy banana and some guava, then nice citrus notes, lemon, lime, some soap too. Nice, balanced finish.

Quite good, the hoppy wheat has been getting my attention lately. This one is a little lighter than the Flying Fish FUSandy I had recently. Very quaffable with resiny hops and a bit of hefe-style wheat. refreshing.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2014
On tap at the Mexican Food Factory. Aroma is light delicious hops; some lime zest, pine, and slight kiwi. Pours pale blonde with a very light fizzy head. Taste is like butter. Perfect citrussy hops; lime, starfruit, and slight resin with just a hint of smooth buttery wheat at the end. Lightest mouthfeel ever made this completely chuggable. Went back for thirds.

Tasting notes from 6/21 Joplin Macadoodles Beerfest: Hoppy, lemonade aroma I found rather pleasant. Taste, however...I just can hardly ever get into wheats. Not outstanding at all.

Canned from Bier table GCT. Gold, cludy, lemony citrus wheat and a bit of a hoppy grapefruit. Not that great.

Tap. Pours hazy gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus and resin hops with earthy and spicy wheat malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with earthy malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Sample at Parkville Microbrew Fest. Comes a cloudy light gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, grain, and grass. Taste is lemon, grass, wheat, and malt. Nice and refreshing.
