Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2009
12 oz bottle thanks to KornDogg. Poured pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of honey, light hops, and wheat. Tastes of lemon, grassy hops, honey sweetness and wheat. I actually thought it was pretty refreshing and drinkable. Good lawnmower beer.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Single bottle purchase from the Orland Park, IL, Binnyís Beverage Depot - It pours a pale yellow body with a fizzy white head that supplies no lace. The aroma is lemony and grassy with some underlying wheat flakes. Spritzy mouthfeel. The grassy bitterness becomes more pronounced in the flavor. The finish is lightly tart with a firm grassy bitterness. Okay Summer drink.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2009
$2 bottle from Abeís, Bethlehem, in case anyone actually wants this. The lemon drop flavor isnít too bad and it figures prominently in the aftertaste but the other elements donít seem to mend well with it. The grassy palate gives it some dryness but the hops and caramel malts seem like the wrong fit with this beer.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Very mild head, that settles to a single layer of bubbles. Cloudy although less than expected. Yellow gold color. Reminds me of a cream ale in the smell. Light wheat aroma. A touch of pepper; some wheat. The aftertaste quickly dies with some sourness. Decent body with a slightly high carbonation. Kinda sits between a bunch of styles--wheat, mild, cream ale; not mastering any.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Pours a pale golden body with a thin white head. Cereal notes and hints of grain and light wheat characteristics. Thin body with some caramel malt.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Pours a clear, minimally hazy yellow/gold colour with a minimal, sudsy head that leaves some spotty lacing. The nose is bland, with corn, pale wheat, doughy bread, and a whisper of citrus. The flavour is about the same, grainy, and hardly any hop flavour at all, accept for a mild lemon zest. The emphasis here is really on the light bready flavours with an overtone on lemon. It does taste very fresh though, and it is extremely quaffable. I guess it achieves what it aims to do. The mouthfeel is slightly slick, perfectly carbonated and finishes almost as clean as Pilsner beers. Iíll be throwing quite a few of these back this summer it seems. Digging the pro-enviro concept!

shadey (1881) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2009
12oz bottle from BOTW. Pours a light yellow color with some haze. Not a lot of head, but some tight white bubbles. Aroma is lightly citrus, mostly lemon. Nice easy to drink citrus flavor - the lemon makes this really refreshing and easy to drink. Great summer beer.

jredmond (5295) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Pours slightly hazy, golden body with no head. Aroma is sweet lemon drop candy and lemon peel. Taste is resfreshing with a pleasant mouthfeel.

Headbanger (3276) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2009
12oz bottle 5/10/09 (Binnyís Plainfield)-Pours a hazy yellow with a decent size white head. Aromas of wheat and a little citrus. Begins with wheat and grains then a bit of grass and it finishes with a bit of dryness. This light bodied brew is somewhat disappointing knowing who its coming from. Was expecting a lot more of this bland wheat ale.

TheAlum (5672) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of Archer Liquors singles selection (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy lemony straw, small bright white bubbly head that dissipates to a film clings a bit. Aromas are a bit musty, wheaty stink with lemon notes, light fruity esters, but the stink gets to me. That shouldnít be a wheat ale. Initial is liht bodied, preaching some mild grainy and cereal qualities, a touch of hop floral and lemon. Grass and lemon, a touch of breadiness and cereal, but a bit bland overall. Lacks body even for the style. Dissappointing largely. A mediocre wheat ale.
