Draft, Clear pale straw color with a low white head. Malt and wheat flavor with some citrus backing. Easy drinking. Just a typical filtered American wheat with little to offer.

Draft at Hangman’s in Placerville, CA. The American wheat version of a Krystalwiezen? Very clear yellow. Nice white head. Not a lot of wheat aroma like I expected, but it was citrusy and malty. Classic Sierra Nevada. Nice Citrus hops in the finish. Some wheat characters in the middle. Okay stuff.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2006
On tap at Issac Newton’s, Pours pale golden with a small white head, aroma of citrus, sweet malts, and slight hoppy presence. Flavor is very citrusy, sweet, wheat, slight hoppy bitterness. Good body, average brew.

OldGrowth (3140) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2006
@ Great Alaskan Barleywine Festival ’06. Good nose, citrusy. Hoppy little guy. Lemony herby. Clean greenish(can’t believe it either, but that’s what I saw)yellow color, small head with minor lacing. Bitter sweet flavor. Tastes like a hop flower in my mouth. Lemon, wheat. Medium body, crisp yet creamy mouthfeel, dryish finish. Seems like a good summer brew.

jsquire (4097) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2006
On tap at the 06 Great Alaska Beer and Barley wine Festival. Pale gold color with a thin fizzy head. Lively nose with some lemon rind, yeast and I swear a little feet. Lightness in the body that makes it very easy to drink (I wish it were summer). Lemon/lime citrus with a buscuit doughiness. Clean and crisp and a good American wheat.

Ernest (7213) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Draught, Falling Rock. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), trace hops (herbs), moderately yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I always find it surprising when people can’t smell the overwhelming vitamin B stink of raw yeast in Sierra Nevada’s beers. This one is especially obvious because there’s so little other aroma to cover it up. Dough soup. Horrible.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Sampled @ GABF- Pours a clear golden color, small white head. Aroma is fresh chopped wheat, malt notes. Flavor is rather light, a touch of citrus and gumballs, very thin over all.

Ungstrup (33802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A clear yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty and wheaty - and so is the flavor - leading to a dry end. The banana is very well hidden.

light gold soapy white head good lace. Wheaty barley grainy lightly sweet lightly grassy aroma. Watery palate. Grain and weak hop flavor... very boring.
