2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer smells like weed. Tastes like a pale lager with wheat characteristics.

Bottle into a goblet. Pour us a honey yellow with a fine head. Aroma is that of grass in the spring with a nice malt back. Taste is a nice bitter wheat, smooth. Finish is a clean wash. This is a good ale.

Wheat and sweet malt on the nose with a light hoppy backing. Not the over the top kick in the pants I brace myself for before trying a new Southern Tier offering. Decent sessioner.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours yellow and very clear for a wheat beer, small head which fades quickly, wheat spicyness dominates with minimal yeast flavor, well balanced but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light, slightly hazy straw yellow, small thin white head that clears quickly, leaving a thin layer that sticks around for a while. Muted aromas of fresh cut grass and some wheat bread. Mild on the flavor as well- starts with a light bite of spicy bitterness accentuated by some brisk carbonation. Light grainy wheat flavors sit behind the bitterness. Very light and mild, in keeping with the low abv. Clearly intended as a summer session brew, which it accomplishes well. Palate is on the brisk side from the carbonation, finish is clean. Nothing incredible, but certainly accomplishes the summer session beer aim very well.

I poured a 12 oz bottle of this strange little beer into an English pint. It smelled of earth and grass, and flavors followed suit, with a decent-sized note of green banana and a whiff of butterscotch added to the mixture. The hops were present in the finish as well as the aroma, although they were never assertive or bold. Overall, this beer is light in body, alcohol, and flavor, but is well balanced. It is what it is: a good example of a meh style. I’d drink another, but I’d feel somewhat sheepish about it.

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange hue slim head faint wheat aroma. Very light fruity wheat. Not extremely sweet like most. I’d call it a wheat lite.

Bottle. Pours pale light gold with a small ring of soapy lace. Aromas of wheat twang, floral/light citrus hops, and a bit of cat piss. Flavor is light and this is super drinkable. Light earthy hops, wheat, and flowers make up the flavor. A strange mix of flavors and aromas here, but the drinkability is insane. Ehhh decent but nothing to write home about....

Bought a case of this at the brewery after seeing a sign saying it was the last batch. I’m assuming they are retiring this brew. It’s a shame to because it’s a decent normal drinking beer. Good with food and relaxation, not boozy. You’ll get a little citrus and sweetness. Very smooth going down without any bitter and you can drink a few and still feel fine.
