3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours from the bottle a deep yellow/orange color with a modest white head and a lot of carbonation. Aroma has a pleasant combination of light wheat tartness with notes of peach, apple and light orange. Wheat hits first in the taste but overall is pretty light. A smooth peach, light apricot and orange flavor ramps up in the middle with just a touch of pine at the tail end. Body is a bit disappointing as the flavors thin it out a bit. Overall the flavor and the nose were good but the body took away a little from what could be a fantastic light beer.

12 oz bottle -
Found this at my local BevMo. Zero fanfare about this beer, so I figured..what the heck. Actually a nice, lawnmower beer that hit the spot this July 4th weekend. A clean aroma, light doughy-notes. An aggressive hop profile for a wheat beer. In fact, I got nearly no wheat notes, but did get some bran-cereal like flavors under the hops. Loved the hops, but pretty one-dimensional. Very refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wow, zesty and crisp. Strong lemon flavor on top of some clean malt and muted yeast spiciness. Would love to give it a better aroma score, but it smells like nothing in the glass. Appearance could be argued is nice by style, but it looks like piss...with a nice head and lacing. Palate is solid and pretty good for a thinner beer. Interesting flavors and a decent drink. If I were to randomly give this a score it would be higher, but is just isn’t there by this scoring method.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. It pours clear yellow with a white head. Obviously a filtered wheat beer. The aroma is nice with wheat and lemon. The flavor is lightly tart with some crackery malts and lemon with a strong bitter finish (for the style). Decent little wheat ale.

Pleasant little filtered hefe from SN. Light crystal malts up front, perfectly balanced American wheat flavors in the body, and a light hop wheat blend for the finish. Good, clean, true to style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. Typical transparent gold with a mediocre white head. Musty rotting bananas and cereal on the nose. Not exactly an intoxicating bouquet. Flavor is a subtle blend of tart fermented wheat, barely-there citrus hops, banana peels, and sticky grains. I’m not sure why I punished myself by buying what is obviously a lame-ass beer (another coveted wheat ale tick!) but what’s done is done. I emerge from this experience unsatisfied.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Whole Foods, Sacramento. Pours clear blonde with a decent white head that doesn’t last long and a floral aroma. There is a refreshing wheat flavor with a little banana ester and dry slightly bitter finish. No sourness as in many wheat beers.
