COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Light, tasty & full of character, our summer wheat ale is brewed with a combination of domestic and continental wheat and barley malts, lightly hopped & fermented with a Belgian wit yeast, resulting in a delightfully tangy & refreshing flavor. This beer is brewed for warm weather enjoyment. Bring some to your next picnic, barbeque or Frisbee game.

Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head that spots lightly. Aroma of wheat and lemon, slight grass, all very faint. Taste is pretty much jut the wheat, really thin on the mouth. Why do summer beers have to suck so much?

kramer (4687) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow body with a small fizzy white head that left some nice lacing. The nose is lightly floral with some light wheat and a little breadiness. The flavor is rather delicate with some floral chamomile notes overlaying the light wheat malt base. Not much influence from the yeast at all in this one. A bit of spiciness on the finish. Light bodied and fizzy with prickly carbonation. Not bad, but rather simple and uninspiring.

Emeister84 (753) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2013
Aromas of toast, flora, and lemon peel. Clear gold with a mostly lasting, bubbly, white head. Dry, biscuity, and bitter. Light bodied with lively carbonation, very refreshing, and with floral and zippy, citrusy notes.

pinkie (425) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pours hazy lemon yellow with a fingerís worth of foam that fell fast but left good lace. Nose is Belgian. Sweet bread, lemon with a hint of sour, spice and wheat. Itís a calm nose with good yeast. Taste is very complex. Bread, cracker and full, but smooth and mild. Ample carbonation but thin body. Drinks a little heavy but clean and crisp. The chamomile is just lightly on top, combining with the faintly floral hops and meets the malt right where it would get sweet but doesnít. The lemon and the wheat come together so closely that you are tempted to think that you canít taste the lemon but your mouth does water. Finishes dry with a touch of bitter and the malt lingers too in the finish. I liked it.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a nice fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon, honey, and wheat. Taste is similar to the nose. Lemon, wheat, and some earthy bitterness.

JamesCory (54) - Wheeling, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2012
12 oz bottle purchased in a variety pack at World Market, poured into an imperial pint.
AR: Strong citrus notes that fade to lemonade as the beer warms up. Very much more like an American wheat than the Belgian Wit mentioned in the description.
AP: Delightfully cloudy. Lively bubbles throughout, head that sticks around and is slightly foamy.
T: Not a lot of taste here. About what I expected given that this is aimed as a summer-appropriate brew for "warm weather enjoyment." Sweet to start, with some finishing bitterness. I donít taste the chamomile advertised on the label.
P: Lively carbonation. Some astringence in the finish.
O: I was pleasantly surprised by this brew. More complex than I was planning on.

...watery, weak, the weizen quality was basically non-existant. Finished watery, with basically no flavor. Poor effort.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy golen color topped by a rocky white head. Fragrant citrusy wheat malt aroma. Tangy refreshing wheat malt flavor. Highly carbonated with lots of yeasty, citrusy character. Dryish citrus hops in finish. Refreshing and flavorful.

Pale lemonade color. Lots of citrus and floral notes lemon as well. Not super wheaty. Not bad on a hot day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No real aroma, nice cloudy weizen look, a bit bitter at first, not a good green hop bitter just a bitter, mellows out after a few drinks, not horrible but not a huge fan
