On draught. Arrived to the table a mostly clear gold with a thin off-white head. Mild aroma of malt with some sweetness to it along with a hint of wheat grain. The flavor is malt, caramel, mild wheat grain, and some floral hops. Mild hops bitterness at the finish. Light-medium bodied. No problems.

Drank on a dock in Maine over Labor Day weekend, so Iím pretty sure I had it in its optimal condition. Slightly hard to nail the flavor down on this one -- it tastes spiced, even though it isnít, and itís clean and light like a lager, even though itís an ale. Probably best not to overthink this one -- I didnít love it, but it was cold on a hot day.

Can from Chevy Chase Beer and Wine. Hazy orange body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, a tad citrus element. Taste is hops for sure, with fruits and citrus. A tad unbalanced and lemony in the finish. Okay.

From a can: pours the way it looks in that there picture. Aroma is light fruitiness and bread. Taste is bready. Lightly hopped and kind of fruity. Pretty meh.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a brassy golden color capped by a large rocky white head. Fragrant lemony wheat nose. Flavor upfront is fruity wheat malt. Has hints of citrus, banana and vanilla. Tart citrus malt in middle. Grassy hops in finish. Another ho-hum Summertime America Wheat. Nothing special.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a hazy copper color with a white head and lacing. The aroma is spice and fruit. The taste is lemon, wheat, banana, spice, and earthy. This was a decent and standard summer ale. There wasnít anything really interesting about it. It was enjoyable enough though.

On Cask at Cask and Vine dry hopped with Citra. Slightly hazy deep yellow color with a decent off white head. Earthy spicy light tropical fruity with bits of citrus. Still quite buttery and that ruins it for me.

Butelka 12 uncji przywieziona z USA, dzięki Marek. Kolor jasnosłomkowy, piana biała dośc trwała. Aromat zbożowo-drożdżowy ze wskazaniem na pszenicę. Smak pszeniczny, słodkie lekkie piwo.
