2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Murky, deep yellow lager with a big, creamy, white head. A+ retention and lacing.
The nose is totally of fresh, pink grapefruit. The flavor is well-balanced, but very thin. Light-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. Short, grassy, dry finish.

Cloudy straw color,small white head that left a slight lace behind.The aroma was light malt,grapefruit and pine with a decent but not great hop presence.Some what sweet taste with a decent lemony flavor and mild hops,fairly carbonatedwith a slight bitter sweet after taste.Nothing special with the exception of needing to be tryed atleast once.

Uggg, why did I bother with this beer? I guess I was thinking it might be similar to the old honey wheat they made. This was the first time I've ever thrown away a six pack....DON'T DRINK THIS BEER!

Much better than the nasty Shiner Blonde. This is drinkable and I can actually taste a little wheat in it. Not great, but the best thing that I have had from this brewery.

Draft. Medium hazy yellow, OK head. Slightly grainy aroma, rather faint. Flavor has some grainy notes, a bit of faint clove spice as it warms. Not bad really, just not a lot to it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The color is cloudy but still very pale yellow (almost cheap beer golden piss color). Head is very foamy. Smell is pleasant but not distinctive. Not too sweet but still citrus tasting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle pours a cloudy golden color with a creamy white head that quickly diminishes. Very little in the way of aroma except to say there is a very mild citrusy smell. Mild yeasty and citrusy flavors at the initial bite, which then quickly dissipates during the finish. Mouthfeel wasn't as chewy as I would have liked for an unfiltered wheat. Also, I was hoping for a bit more flavor at the end. Not a bad beer, but I've had better.

A decent take on an German style wheat, that is made in America. A nice acidic aroma, with a yeasty banana taste. The body and mouthfeel are very light and crisp, with a bit of a tart bite in the finish. Gets points just for the label art.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy orange-yellow with tall white foamy head that dissipates slowly. Yeast visible in glass. Aroma is nondescript but with some citrus. Flavor is refreshing, citrusy with a light malty sweet finish. Slightly tart and acidic. Bottle says to add a lemon. I didn't have one so I added a lime. Was quite surprised at how it mellows out the carbonated bite of the beer and makes it smoother overall. Label is downright weird. An interesting beer overall.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice looking wheat; cloudy and orange. Lacks a little of the citrus flavor I expect in the style. Really thin bodied hurts it overall.
