3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Newly imported to Denmark by Drikkeriget. Found this one at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen.
Bottle 33 cl.
The weather is hot and sweaty as hell therefore the choice fell on this pale beer. Very light pour with a nice fizzy white head. The nose is fruity and sweet - like peaches and honey-melons and a bit of sulfo and almonds. Pretty nice mouthfeel and the palate is rather creamy. I taste some hops some yeasts and a light bitterness with not much of a finish besides the bitterness. Nice summer beer that a nice to drink. Had expected less from the name.

Pretty much what you would expect from the name, a pale, wheat, ale. Aroma of wheat and light hops. Good carbonation, light bitterness.

Had as a sampler at the brewery tour. A decent wheat beer with a nice hop backbone and a little bitterness.

Pours a light gold with just a hint of haze. The nose floral and wheaty, with notes of lavender and vanilla. The first taste has some mild vanilla. As others have mentioned, this beer seems a little off-balanced. Not bad but I would opt for other brews.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An average wheat ale. Aroma was very perfumey. Pour was a medium gold with a thin off white ring for a head.Taste was alright but way too sweet. Sweet sugar and light malt with nothing to balance it out. Very little carbonation and a wet sticky aftertaste. It’s not bad, but a typical American wheat ale.

12oz dalekliz brought back for me from Ohio. Pours orangey copper with a bright white head. Nose is light. So is the taste. Not such a big fan of this.

Pours a dull yellow with a thin foam ring. Unremarkable aroma. Watered down wheat ale taste - mostly barley malt, very little in the way of hops, bland and uninteresting.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden coloured body with a frothy white head. Aroma of lemons, yeast, wheat and a bit of coriander seed coolness. Light-bodied; Assertive citrus and acidic taste with a bit of malt and some very light hops thrown in. Aftertaste is mild, wheatie and very metallic - nothing too pleasant from this one. Overall, a pretty sub-par beer, especially from Southern Tier! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Westover Market in Arlington, Virginia on 19-April-2009, sampled on the Fourth of July 2009 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
