WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle. A nice clear golden straw color body with a short white head leaving some spotty lace , medium carbonation. Aroma of Light sweet malt , wheat , bread crust , and a hint of citrus . Flavor is very light , it has hints of tangy wheat malt , citrus , honey and faint grassy hops , very balanced . Light body with a crisp clean mouthfeel , slightly dry finish with very little aftertaste . I would think this to be VERY sessionable , I could drink 5 or 8 on a hot day . Not the best Pale Wheat Iíve had but a very good brew to try .

williamherbert (1290) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Light golden yellow color. Head floats away quickly. Not all that impressive, to be truthful. The smell is a wheat base, that is overpowered by a slight funk of something I canít quite identify. Itís not altogether unpleasant, but not great. More wheat than pale. The taste is a peppery first sip, which dominates the flavor. A strange pilsnery hop, which seems out of place here. Really sharp flavor. Interesting.... The feel is smooth and buttery. A bite on the back and at the swallow. More of a wheat beer than a pale ale, although it has aspects of both. A decent drink, nothing amazing.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Baba Budanís in Cincinnati. Pours clear gold with virtually no head, and the little there is vanishes quickly. Weak aroma with notes of hops, wheat, fruit, and sugar. Flavor is also disappointingly weak, with a little each of wheat, citrus, and hops. Light body and very smooth, medium carbonation. Crisp, quick finish. Very easy to drink but underwhelming in every way. Southern Tier can do so much better than this.

dalekliz (874) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-amber with a bubbly white ring. Crisp aroma, of wheat, citrus, spices, malt. Taste starts crisp, with wheat and citrus, then picks up a hoppy bitterness, with malt and spices. Lingering crispness. Not bad.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2009
Surprisingly sweet with notes of honey, oranges, melon and plenty of tea-like tannins. Thereís also a bit of a metallic undercurrent that doesnít work for me. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a decent white head that recedes rapidly to a lasting cover with some lacing. Citrus is apparent along with some pine-like hop character a bit of corn. Bitterness is quite pronounced and Iím noting that metallic undercurrent in the nose carries through in the flavour. Odd aftertaste - itís quite briney and a bit vegetal and brings pickles to mind. Light body with moderate carbonation. This just isnít working out for me all that well. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in Jul-09.
