2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at RNH. Clear pale golden beer. Thin white head. The aroma is lightly wheaty. There is a bit of light lemon and a touch of earthy spicy hops. Nice enough for the summer although itís pretty damn light. Refreshing though.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light yellow in color... Aroma of wheat malts... Flavor is of wheat, banana, with a crisp finish that leaves a nice wheat taste on the palate, much better than the summerfest and more complex.... Great beer, too bad it isnít more commercially available instead of blue moon or shock top and other trash wheats like them...

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 On tap at RNH (NYC): Pale blonde pour, thin head. More of a feminine-style beer due to its tangy taste and light feel. Dangerously drinkable. #012 on 14062009, DG.

Tap at RNH, thanks Hacker. Pours a hazy orange body with an off white head. Light spices, wheat, hints of citrus and some light floral fruit character. Nice and session able.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled @ Rattle n Hum for SN Week. Pours a pale yellow. Nose is difficult for me to pick up anything besides slight hop and wheat. Taste is light and body is watery. Easy to drink and smooth. Awesome lemon candy tang overtop some florals. I wish some more wheat or clove. Not terrible, but best reserved as a good alternative to lager on a hot day 2.85

Draft, at Blind Tiger (NYC) 8/30/08. Pours pale orange amber, capped with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, mild yeast, and crisp hops. Flavor is primarily wheat, with lemon and floral hops. Hops linger on the palate. Refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at BT. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma is weak, just some light sweet malt. Flavor of sweet malt, some light fruits, wheaty finish with bittering hops. Had a champagne-like spritziness. Not bad-- it was pretty tasty and drinkable.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Aroma of wheat and graininess with some floral hops. Flavor of astringent grains with a hint of sweetness. On the weak side. Blargh.

I am glad that Sierra Nevada brought this to Hops in Humboldt in Fortuna, CA because I had never seen it before. Came a cloudy light yellow, with fizzy white head and light lacing. Nose of citrus hops some fruit like banana. Light but smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the citrus hops, and it finishes dry . I had two glasses and the second was good as the first.
