2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very middle-of-the-road beer. Rather thin and lacking character of any kind. Drinks easy on a hot day, but certainly nothing to look forward to.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz Bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) labeled as KBC Wheat and that it has 5.1%ABV. Color is a hazy gold with good carbonation and a big white rocky head. Aroma of white pepper and wheat. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp and very fizzy mouth feel. Flavor is sweet malted wheat a bit of spice and citrus. After taste is clean with a note of fruit hanging on. Overall its not bad for a basic wheat but not that good ether, maybe a little sweet.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is pretty weak but has wheat, malt, alcohol, and hay like hops. The appearnace is golden with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a good beer but nothing to write home about.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Trader Joe’s - labeled as Kennebunkport Wheat Beer. Mostly clear light gold pour with a very minimal white head. I agree with seymour below - I was also strongly reminded of a German kristalweizen when I sampled this. A bit of a funky malt aroma with mild clove/spices, palate is a bit heavier than the appearance would suggest (but far from heavy), and the taste is lemongrass, a touch of hops, and some spice. Not too bad, but a bit of a different animal than I thought I was getting when this was listed as a wheat beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Trader Joe’s labelled KBC Wheat Beer. Poured a clear, light amber-orange color with weak off-white head which faded quickly, no lace. Swirling it did not revive any foam. Aroma and flavor was more reminiscent of the German kristal weizen style than a Belgian wit. Tart, slightly sour citrus, but few pepper/clove/banana esters. No real hops bitterness, a little more in the flavor. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, lasting fruity aftertaste finishes to dryness. Drinkable, but somewhat mediocre.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of some light sugary banana, yeast, and a touch of grass . It pours a transparent gold with a two finger soapy white head that lasts a minute or so and leaves behind some spotty lacing. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet honey, lager yeast, and a touch of banana. The finish has light-moderate lemongrass and light grass. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, pretty much your typical dumbed down American Wheat.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
As Kennebunkport Wheat. Poured into a Weizen glass. Color is golden straw with minimal white head. Aroma is wheat with some sweet maltiness, and some earthy yeast notes. Flavor is wheat and bready malts. Palate is light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall not bad, but there are much better wheat beers out there. This one seems like a wheat beer mixed with a lager or a blonde ale.
