3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy flaxen pour with a light white head and some lace left behind. Strong lemon and wheat aromas. Musky malts and sour hops. Big wheat malt flavors along with a touch of lemon and citrus hops. Grapefruit comes in as well, sweet though. Really smooth palate, silk like, light in the body and a nice dry finish of citrus and wheat.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A light cloudy yellow color with a large white head. The nose is a spicy citrus and wheat, pretty much on style. The flavor is a little dissappointing, tasting like a cheap knock-off of the style; lots of plastic and sour fruit, but generally it just doesn't have enough to sell me.

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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
