UPDATED: OCT 6, 2008 Draught: Slight honey aroma. Golden in color with big white head that left a medium lacing. Clear. Tasted of malts, honey, and lemon, but was balanced with some hoppy dryness. Medium bodied. Lively carbonation. Easy to drink. Overall, a decent lighter beer for a hot summer day.

Tap @ Red’s. Fogged glass!!!!!! SO upset! I could still tell the stuff was clear looking down into the glass, but aL:SKFJHLKSFJL >_<!!!! Straw colored and clear, white head and not much lace (dots and splotches here and there). Body was light to medium with lots of foamy carb and a lightly dry finish. Aroma was a light musk (dough), malty honey and rather earthy. Flavor was musky with sweat and leather. Noticable wheat flavor. Lightly bitter sour finish with a spicy hop presence and a lemon sour. Hop spice becomes more noticable with warmth. Lemon sour (no rind, just meat) with the spice is quite refreshing and nice. The beer was enjoyable and highly drinkable. Not knock your socks off impressive, but a top choice for session.

On draught at Red’s Old 395 Grill in Carson City, NV. Didn’t know the difference between the wheat and the crystal wheat, so I ordered this. Much lighter than I expected. As light as a BMC macroswill, but enough hop tinge and citrus flavor to keep it interesting. The orange didn’t hurt. Extremely drinkable on a hot day. Put down a 25oz mug easily and could’ve pounded one or two more, but probably not something I’ll get again.

Slightly spicy, herbal hoppiness. Sweetish, dull body. Lacking anything in the way of an interesting finish. A little too acidic.

Draft at brewery: Clear and pale yellow. Malts were on the light side, but they were rather flavorful (wholesome, wheaty, bready). Balancing, flowery bitterness. Well made and very drinkable.

Wheat, honey, hops, slightly bitter. Decent, but it seemed to be that the unfiltered version is more pleasant and filling.

Had this on tap in Chico. Not much in the aroma, but what a nice smooth flavor it had! Very light but distinctive malt, with maybe apple or pear flavors too. Very refreshing.

The first thing I noticed about this “Wheat beer” was the presents of “Hops”, much more than I expected, and it was a pleasant surprise. Color on the pour a nice “Chill Hazed” light to medium amber with the head humongous in size, creamy in its consistency, and bright white in color, as the head eroded the lace formed a concealing sheet upon the glass. Hops a nice hop floral followed closely by the sweet malt, fresh and crisp, a real treat, start was also malt laden, somewhat sweet and the top slim in its feel. Finish mildly acidic, hops to the forefront, desert dry and lingering aftertaste. Damn another great beer I get to sample on draught only once a year if the “Beer Gods” see fit.

On tap in Chico. It was OK. The lemon made it taste better. This was the last beer I had there. Pale yellow color, no head. Not much aroma or taste.
