Pours a hazy straw with a towering, pillowing, white head. The nose is a pleasant blend of wheat malt, some faint toffee, and a mildly, spicy, earthy and fruity English hop note. Light-bodied with a soft, "wheaty" mouthfeel, the palate concludes in a mildly bitter, drying finish. The flavor mirrors the nose with a nice spicy/fruity hop profile over a wheat malt backbone. I like a lot of wheat beers, but I don’t generally care all that much for a lot of English-style hops. So this effective blend of, what I would have thought were strange bedfellows, has really surprised me. This is a tasty beer, and I will definitely be purchasing more this summer.

I am quite sad this is retired. Right from the bottle into a tulip glass, this brew left a stiff, thick, white foam head that lasted until it had to be knived off. Bright translucent yellow color with pleasant mild yeasty wheat aroma. Delicious mildly sweet cereal wheat flavor with a perfect balance of piney spicy Yakima hop! So delicious.

Tap. Poured hazy light orange color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop and earthy wheat aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew.

Simply the best wheat beer ever created. There is a perfect balance of 3 aspects at work: hops, wheat, and acid. Bravo work StL Brewery

Canned FEB 24 15. Nose floral and hoppy, some wheat, but for me it’s lots of tangerine with touches of lemon, dank, and pine. Pours bright golden with slight orange hues, short soapy white head. Taste semi-dry with a little residual hop sweetness, still good citrus development there with no green or vegetal, very graceful hopping over gorgeous bready wheat. Very crisp and quenching, medium-full body with bitterness revealing itself in the long, smooth aftertaste alongside slightly elevated mineral profile. Impressed, was not expecting this level of freshness or cohesion of elements -- would be a fantastic spring/summer beer. [2015.11.14: 3.5]

Decently hazy weizen with a banana citrus finish that leaves a little to be desired.

12 ounce can. straw yellow color. Large bubbly white head. Fragrant bready wheat malt nose has a nice citrus hop bouquet. Flavor is a mix of yeasty wheat maltiness and lemon peel. Grass hops appear in the midtaste. Light bodied with brief dry finish.

TH28 (386) - - 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.
