Chudwick (1966) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 10, 2013
12oz bottle - nose is bread with grass clippings. Slight citrus presence. Easy to drink though there a slight cardboard aftertaste. Not a beer to have after shoveling yet more snow. Gets better as it warms. I would drink a Blue Moon over this.

5/14/2011. From bottle. Southern Tier makes a lot of excellent brews, but this is not one of them. Cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Wheat, light malt and spicy flavors.

mattern84 (5) - - NOV 11, 2013 does not count
Light hazy colored. Malty smelling. Not much after taste and leaves palate slightly dry. Basic ale taste and not much of the wheat flavor.

jdb288 (472) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2013
i don’t get much more than an overwhelming, heavy wheat flavor - hay, slight malt. Not well composed in my opinon. Far better wheat ales out there.

EithCubes (4702) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle. Nose a lightly sour, mildly hoppy mess, some sweetness with vanilla and wheat. Pours hazy pale yellow with a rocky bright white head and lace. Light medium body is very soft with lots of wheat and a nice wheat resolution, there’s strong and filling carbonation with a low-light of light grain. Fresh with some fruitiness from the hops, would probably be a very good beer for the height of summer, still works well even now as a refreshing American Wheat, a terribly conceived style that nonetheless occasionally produces good beers (like this one).

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. Light hazy yellow with a small, but lively, bubbly white head. Aroma is kinda subdued with light grain, hay, light citrus, dough, fragant yeasty notes. Watery and light, rather sweet, very light bitter. Not very interesting

Balazs (785) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle. Poured clean, with a golden yellow color and a small, lacing off-white foam. Corn and honey in the nose. Fairly simple aroma, mostly malty, with hints of honey, bread, and perhaps a bit of lime. Smooth on the palate, with medium dense body and lively carbonation. Simple, basic, but refreshing, very summerish. If that’s what it is meant to be, then great, but otherwise a basic ale. Nothing is really wrong here, but seriously lacking character.

teddybeer (2162) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head with short duration. Aroma is light malty with citrus notes. Flavor is light malty, slightly bittery with citrus hints. Short final.

1guywith_aboat (212) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Pours yellow. Aroma is spicy yeast and some malted wheat. Flavor is mild wheat ale with a very tame hop presence. Good but too light all around for my taste. Still not bad.
