2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear golden yellow which turns to a nice cloudy yellow/orange when the yeast at the bottom is mixed in. Very decent white head. Aroma is citrusy, honey, grassy, and wheat. Flavor is rather unremarkable and bitter. Very light on the wheat flavor. Finish is long, hoppy and bitter . Nothing exciting going on here, although unique for a "wheat beer."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy light amber body with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, yeast, and honey. Smooth and sweet all of the way through. Sweet citrus and honeyed rolls with a very subtle touch of floral hops. A very drinkable wheat that lacks a little spice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Citric aroma that borders on being metallic. A light, sweet grainy character with a spritzy fruitiness. A bit impure I believe. A creamy head rests on top of a cloudy golden body. The flavour is a bit weakish - balanced to the sweeter side, with a pronounced bready maltiness, doughy yeast and slightly herbal hops. Enjoyable wheat.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear, pale orange body until the last bit of yeast is mixed in, clouding the body and deepening the orange color a bit. Foamy, white, inch thick head that dissipates slowly and leaves a light, sticky lacing. Aroma is a lighter wheat, some grassy hops, a bit of a doughy yeast, a light honey, and some zesty lemon. Flavor is solid. Soft wheats up front before a good amount of grassy, funky bitterness comes in. Finishes with a sweet yeast and dough, a light sour citrus, and a touch of honey. Dry with lots of lingering bitterness that lasts for quite awhile. Light bodied with a fizzy carbonation after a smooth mouthful. Overall, a very tasty wheat thanks to the high level of bitterness. Nothing too crazy elsewhere, but I like it nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Red Label. Hazy golden yellow, white head. Earthy aroma, slightly musty, nice fruit esters of distant banana. A very nice wheat malt nose. Very bitter flavor, slight tartness, very dry. So bitter and dry that my whole palate constricts. Other flavors consist of dough, barnyard, cheese, and a hint of citrus hops. A unique astringent finish with fizzy carbonation. Not really sure how old this bottle is. It was a marked down 6pk sitting on the floor next to the checkout. Better as it warms. Medium bodied.
