2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. This beer pours clear and straw yellow, with a loose, medium-sized off-white head that settled quickly, leaving almost no lacing whatsoever. The aroma profile is sweet grain with a hint of honey. This beer is a malt bomb from start to finish with little flavor complexity, and nominal wheat character. This offering could use some hop balance in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Pickís poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma is mostly grainy caramel malt with some light grapefruit hops. Taste is light sweet and very light bitter. Similar to the aroma. Itís pretty good, but not a lot going on here. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and an average finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing really special but a great intro to craft. And at 6 bucks, itís a decently cheap intro to craft. Iíd take this over any light beer any day.

Shiner 102 Double Wheat has a very thin, white head and a clear, golden appearance, with some streaming bubbles and no lacing. The aroma is of Roman Meal bread and maybe molasses and honey. Taste is of Roman Meal brand wheat bread, honey, molasses, syrupy sweetness, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium, and Shiner 102 Double Wheat finishes slick and metallic. Overall, this is a hard beer to rate and figure out, but itís still worth a try. RJT

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a dark gold color with about a half inch off-white head. The head retention is pretty good, and thereís a decent amount of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is mostly grainy, the brew smells like sweet malt and wheat, along with some caramel and light grassy hops. The taste is just like the aroma. Itís a mostly sweet grainy taste, along with some bittering/grassy hops in the finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís crisp and easy enough to drink. Overall itís an OK brew, and worth a try.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from a trade with Boutip. Perfectly clear yellow pour with small white head. Aroma is very wheaty but not in the european coriander clove way, just very sweet grain aroma. Not much hoppiness, a bit in the taste but overall quite sweet. Even the slight alcohol finish seems to bring more sweetness to the table. Palate is OK, med body with light carbonation. Didnít like this very much at all.

Easy drinking wheat ale. Nice aroma and flavors. Straw in color with a thin head. Aroma was thick in wheat and grapefruit like. This was very tasty and finishes quite dry.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really enjoy wheat beer so this was right up my ally. Nice wheat character and not overbearing with the abv as some doubles can be (this one clocks in at just over 6%) Light enough to be a session brew but still maintains some nice flavor. Definitely worth a try.
