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.

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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
This simply blows. The only thing about this that resembled a wheat beer was that it was cloudy with an enormous head. After that it just sucked. No aroma or flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I really enjoyed this beer, more than I expected as its a rather cheap American wheat beer. Its rather yeasty, but it has a good citrus flavor and is pretty light bodied, which is perhaps one of its downfalls. Very palatable though my room mates disagree!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a hazy orange/gold color with a nice white head that hung on for awhile leaving some stringy lacing behind. Yeasty, bready nose. Light bodied, kinda creamy mouthfeel. Citrusy fruity with some spices backing them up. Finish is medium dry. Not bad for an american wheat. Cool label.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I expected more out of this beer, given my enjoyment of their Bock and fav. towards citrus. Average taste, thirst quenching, but too much citrus (don't add lemon). Cool bottle, thick lingering white head, but I won't be picking up another pack any time soon.
