On tap @ Downtown Brew Paso Robles. Hazed golden pour with a white head. Nose is sour lemon, some wheat, cracker, and grass. Typical. Flavor is tart and lightly bitter. A bit of sweet malt/wheat bread, too. Lots of lemon and grass. A bit crackery on the finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy dark yello, no head. Soapy lemon aroma. Sweet with clean bold mouthfeel. Some fat and plasti. Low bitterness. Clumsy and decidedly non-refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
OK. I cut and pasted this part from my other ratings at SLO brewing: "Tried at the brewpub in downtown Paso Robles after a day of visiting wineries. Man, the wineries ROCK here. What an awesome day. What a better way to finish off the day than to sit down with a sampler platter of ice cold uber-crappy beer." On to the beer: Cloudy yellow-amber color. Lightly sweet. Lemon wedge on the side makes a big difference...wait maybe not... it’s still crap. Small carbonation bite. Hint of vegetal.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Santa barbara location. Fully opaque dark yellow color with a lasting creamy head. The aroma is light with a touch of grainy wheat bread. The flavor is pretty clean with wheat graininess and light tarntess and bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied; smooth and a little creamy. Pleasant, but bland, though it has a good amount of flavor for being only 3.5%.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
9/14/07 On draught at Claim Jumper, Tukwila, Wa. Aroma is low sweet wheat malt forward with a touch of fermenting yeast notes. Appearance is hazy gold with a low white head. Flavor is sweet malt forward with probably 40-50 percent wheat malt flavors and no hop character. There are some peppery yeast phenol flavors. Mouthfeel is spritzy and medium bodied. Overall, fairly good, probably most comparable to a Widmer hef with flavors in just a little bit different amount of each flavors.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had as a sampler at the new Santa Barbara Downtown Brewing co.They took over Slo Brewing.This was served with a wedge of lemon,which I think made it too sour.Had a decent aroma.Had a cloudy appearance,which was appealing.The flavor before the lemon was a pleasant wheat flavor.Not too sour,yet had that distinct wheat taste.The palate was a nice,sticky type.I would like to try this again without the lemon.It got too sour with the lemon juice.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ the brewery. Semi-hazed and pale goldenrod in color with a creamy white wrung and a thin iceberg of a saliva spackle for the head. Lemon buttered meringue teams with caramelized wheat, lemon chiffon avec grahams and lemon shortbread for the aroma. Flavor bridges the less desirable elements, congruently distressed by shortbread and a buttery cream cheese danish. Stifling carbonation with lemon drop flavors and botched banana buttercream. This might be the world’s strongest example of gleaning clover into a metallic, stinging format.
