5000 (6299) - 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.

Orange hue slim head faint wheat aroma. Very light fruity wheat. Not extremely sweet like most. Iíd call it a wheat lite.

Cerveza bastante interesante, sabor ligeramente dulce y muy suave. Al principio puede parecer no muy buena, pero deja un sabor bueno. Ideal para la gente que no le gusten las cervezas muy lupuladas.

For the style itís not bad. A little thin but very clean. Good to drink when itís hot out but other than that, average.

justabeergeek (225) - Albany, New York, USA - APR 14, 2013
Appearance: Itís a slightly hazy orange color with about a finger of soapy white head.

Aroma: Thereís a little bit of a wheaty earthiness to it, but it isnít a smell that knocks me back. Some hops, but not much.

Taste: The flavor falls into a grey for me because of the fact that Southern Tier is billing it as a ďpale wheat ale.Ē Unfortunately, I donít get much of the American wheat beer style beyond a touch of a spiciness mixed with some fresh cut grass. I also donít get too much hops in the palate, either.

Overall: My problem with this beer is that there isnít really anything about it that makes me crave it at all. It is between two styles, and Iím not sure that it is adequately capturing either of the parts of each that I enjoy. By no means is this a bad beer, but I guess itís a hybrid that doesnít quite bring anything beyond the sum of its parts.

Score: 6/10

Poured a clear golden color with a thick and frothy white head. Aroma is pretty faint but I caught lemon, grass, caramel, and not much else. Taste is lemon, grass, honey, orange, and a sweet/sour finish.

ellolovey (469) - Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden straw color with a thin white head. Aroma of burnt grains, sweet malts, and hints of citrus. Taste very light and refreshing. Earthy, dirt, leaves, caramel, roasted malts and barley. A nice balance between malts and the subtle hoppiness on the back bone. Very enjoyable. One of the only Pale Aleís I have liked.
