12oz bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with small white head. Aroma is mellow, wheat, and a bit spicy. Taste is slightly fruity, wheat and yeast notes, and not much else.

jake65 (2674) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle: Bright golden color and quite translucent. A finger of white head leaves a decent trail of sticky lacing. Nose is brisk with wheat and dirty florals, translates right into the crisp wheat ale flavor I was expecting. Nice biscuity malt, dandelion, and wheat. Refreshing.

calm_dreamer (158) - GREECE - JUN 3, 2013
Pours golden yellow with thick white foam head. Wheat smells, maybe banana and citrus, yeast, bread. Same taste, a notch hoppy, leaves a bready and wheaty aftertaste.

DCLawyer (1429) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle at a cookout. Hazy orange/gold. Light citrus wheat. Unremarkable and average. Would not advise drinking other than in summer and then only outdoors.

superspak (2681) - Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/12/2013. Pours very hazy golden straw color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy bright white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, wheat, bread, pepper, light clove, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and strength of bready malt and fruity/spicy yeast and hop notes. Taste of lemon, orange zest, pear, pepper, wheat, clove, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light amount of spicy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, floral, grass, and earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor balance and robustness of hop, malt, and yeast flavors; with no cloying flavors on the finish as expected. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent pale wheat ale! All around nice balance and robustness of flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one; best pale wheat ale I have had yet.

Orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Wheaty malt dominates the nose. Flavor is sweet wheat, orange, and a light floral hop bitter. Light bodied with good carbonation.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Hazy orangish straw, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Pale wheaty nose, slightly spicy even.   Nice clean wheatiness on the tongue, but not as spiced as the nose suggested.   Luckily no sulfur or other associated aromas/flavors so common with the American style.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little bready and wheaty on the finish, with a touch of fruit in the finish.   Better than I expected, and sweeter than usual.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Orange hue slim head faint wheat aroma. Very light fruity wheat. Not extremely sweet like most. Iíd call it a wheat lite.
