2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale, mininal head, looks like American lager crap, smells like it too, honey, grainy, not much else going on there. Palate is sweet, lemon, a bit of graininess in there, tiny bit of hops in the finish. I donít understand why ST was interested in making this.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks 17thfloor! Pours cloudy golden yellow with a decent lingering white frothy head. Aroma is very grainy and a decent amount of citric fruit , some lemon peel and wheat with some sugar. Flavor starts with a weak sweet citrus fruitiness and picks up a wheat grain flavor and finishes dry on the tongue. Lemon is the predominant fruit and it doesnít get much moving elsewhere. medium body and active carbonation. So so beer, very light and crisp.

Bottle from Wine Warehouse on 04/26/2009. Very clear golden body wtih a medium frothy white head. Wheat, spice, pale malt and a slight vegetable (brussel sprouts) aroma. Sweet spicy flavor, some wheat and pale malt, and an earthy malt character. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

Bottle at Coles, Buffalo NY. Not one of my favorites from ST. Light citrus floral nose. Pale yellow pour. Light citrus, mainly lemon. Summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Found this one bottled at Binnyís in St. Charles, Illinois. Clear, bubbly, light golden pour with a thick, foamy white head, grassy, lemony nose, balanced wheaty flavor with a bit of citrusy hops. Easy drinking finish. Not terrible but whatever.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Ok, so I missed Earth Day by 2 days. I actually forgot I had picked this up to drink on the 22nd. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a moderate, brilliant white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. Mild aroma of wheat grain and just a bit of lemon. The flavor is not as subdued as the aroma, and is again wheat grain and lemon with some mild spice and a bit of a hoppy finish. Very easy drinking beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not the usual label design from ST. Looks like recycled paper. 422 = April 22. More or less a standard American wheat: clean, refreshing, mild. Some wheat twang up front. What I like best is the hint of biscuity malts that hangs around afterwards. Doesnít transcend the style, though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of wheat and yeast. Flavor is much like the aroma, plus notes of grapefruit and other citrus fruits.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice light yellow/straw color with a thin head. A little cloudy, but mostly clear. Aroma is banana and citrus, kind of a weird combo, but it works. Reminds me of some of the good things about a wheat combined with some of the good things about a nice pale lager. Weird combo, but not a bad overall beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First of all, I like the gimmick packaging on this, even though I usually get pissed off at gimmick packaging, especially since stuff like this usually contains crappy beer - Iím surprised by this, and I find it weird that the overall score is so low - pours lightly hazy, with a soapy lace - aroma of wheat and cereal grains, herbal hops, and zesty citrus - medium bodied, moderate carbonation - generously hopped for a wheat ale - lightly peppery hops up front, followed by some wheat and yeasty character - a light honey sweetness follows behind this - some minty hops return in the finish - on the tail end, there is a slight corn adjunct character, which is this beerís biggest flaw - however, overall, this is a flavorful and refreshing wheat ale.
