2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
OK, here we go. Never tried this one so i was hoping to find my first good American wheat beer here. These guys have some really good beers in their line-up.
Bottle, had this at bishops arms at the central station in Stockholm. Surprised to see mostly boring hazy light yellow look with mostly disappearing head. The smell was very surprising, very much grapefruit, grapes, flowers. Very fresh smell indeed, this could get interesting. But the taste was very weak, except for the light cherry taste and the strange pretty hoppy taste, which you never find in the European weissbiers or witbeers. Not as complex, fruit, floral or citric as some Belgian or German versions versions but still interesting. I could drink some of these on a hot afternoon in California but since it is winter here in Sweden and I still have some objectivity I rather take a different beer, seriously. Cheers.

Good wheat beer, but a little thin and slightly sharp taste. Red ettikettes do not suit wheat beers.

An average wheat beer, nothing special, but not that bad either. Citrus flavor, light dry finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An average wheat beer with typical notes of banana, spice, wheat and bread.
This one was good , but lacked the pop of say Hacher Pshor.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hefiger, schnell hopfig werdender Antrunk mit geringfügiger Herbe, die durch ihre Trockenheit mehr in den Vordergrund kommt. Das milde Bier bietet ausreichend Aromen, zudem ist es außerordentlich frisch und überzeugt vor allem mit seiner abgestimmtem hopfig-herben und in Teilen hefigen Aromen. Zum Ende prickelnd, der Hopfen geht ins Bittere über, das aber auch im Nachgeschmack eine Randerscheinung bleibt. 8/11/12/11/12/11

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: golden orange, nice foamy head. Aroma: wheat, lots of citrus, some bitter hops. Taste: light wheat, blast of citrus; hops are very balanced here. Finish: short, hint of citrus and wheat, smooth and crisp. Notes: Extremely refreshing summery citrus beer. Not terribly complex, but enjoyable around the barbecue. Seemed to be a combination of the Kellerweis and a summer ale.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 Coming from this brewery, a slight disappointment. Granted, the style of American Wheat Ale is a disappointment, but this is kind of average for this brewery, as opposed to the just avergage you get with AWAs.

Bottle/12oz - Pours a straw yellow in color with a small white head that fades quickly. Aroma is grainy with both citrus and floral hops... some of the characteristic wheat sourness. Flavor is quite fruity with citrus and floral hops. Finish is slightly bitter, but clean. An OK wheat beer...

Part of the sampler tray at the brewery. Tought to judge based on two ounces, but a bit light for my liking.
