2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated on 12-31-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a small white head with a short retention, transparent pale yellow body. The Aroma is wheat, citrus hops, and fruity. The Taste is malty, wheat and hint of citrus hops. The Palate is lightly bubbly and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, I did not care for the flavor of this beer as the flavors just did not join together very well. This beer lacks character and had no WOW factor for me. It is not a "bad" beer. I simply was not impressed with the flavor.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Botella de 33 cl en el lupulo. Marzo de 2013. Muy maltosa y con gran carga de cereales y trigo que la debería hacer más suave y ligera pero no, todo lo contrario, presenta un cuerpo medio bastante aspero con ligero Amargor final. No me convence.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hazy colored. Malty smelling. Not much after taste and leaves palate slightly dry. Basic ale taste and not much of the wheat flavor.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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).
