Pours yellow with little to no head. Wheat beer with a hint of lemon but not much flavor overall.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/10/2016. Pours lightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and moderate fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of bready malt, earthy hops, and moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and a slight bitter astringency lingering after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly sticky/bready/chalky mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a solid English pale wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of pale male, earthy hops, and moderate yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

Draft at the reception area of the New River Bridge tour. Tasted mighty good after a few hours of being so high up.

Ok summer ale. Slightly dissatisfying aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma was of orangey and wheat. Flavor similar, but dumb down. Bland, boring.

Pours a clear straw yellow gold color with white head. Wheat, cereal grains, and yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with wheat and a little sweetness.

Pours a dark straw from a bottle, aroma of sweet caramel and corn or something like that. Flavor is rather dry, with some hop bitterness. Meh.

Smells Like a normal wheat ale, slightly sweet and malty, taste is the same with a little bit of pilsner taste in there.. especially on finish, malt goes away over time and beer seems more bitter

Beerathon (1679) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Golden yellow pour with pillowy white head. I hate to be overly critical of wheat ales, as its not a style I care for that much, but this one is worst than most. Cereal grains, wheat, lemon, lager like finish (sweet malts/corn). Find it neither refreshing or enjoyable. Just a weak beer with some off flavors.

DocJitsu (1484) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Pours a clear, deep golden with a large, white head. Notes of banana, green grape, and seltzer. A much fuller mouthfeel than I anticipated. Toasted malt, banana, and green grape flavors. A touch eggy.

Blah - as plain & as boring as it gets! Light piss pour w/out much of a head or lacing. The aroma is pretty much nonexistent much like the flavor. Do not reccomend!
