Pours a hazy, very light gold. Grassy, earthy flavor, with a slight bittering on the tail end of the taste. Very light, very smooth. It's pretty tame, but I could this being a great summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rated based on notes taken 27 Dec 2011 -- A very nice pale ale. One of the first Southern Tier beers that didnít have that bright hop presence.

Transfer from BA review on 7-15-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance Ė Pours a straw yellow color with one finger white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave only a very light amount of lacing. Smell Ė The aroma is heaviest citrus and spice. There is a good presence of orange as well as some nice aromas of clove and cardamom. Mixed with these aromas are lighter aromas of yeast and banana with a wheaty bread smell. Taste Ė The taste begins on the wheatier side with notes of citrus sweetness. The wheat bread and citrus orange flavors are soon meet with notes of yeast and some cardamom more towards the middle of the taste. As the taste advances some of the citrus orange transitions to a slightly more lemon flavor and is accompanied notes of clove and yeast coming to the tongue at the end. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is on the lighter to medium side with a slightly higher than average carbonation level. Very average and fitting. Overall Ė It is quite easy to drink and has some good flavors. Makes for a tasty session.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
A dark straw color with little in way of a foam head. It lingers into a little wispiness. Some haziness and a little carbonation. Slight hop aroma and a bit of malt. Mildly bright and citrusy sweet and dry. Thin bodied. Some lacing around glass is present. Reminds me a little of Magic Hats # 9 in a way, but without the apricot essence. Not a bad beer. An excellent beer for the style, although Iím in favor of banishing this style of beer to some far away place forever. Drink well my friends

(trade w/OlKing) - Small white head. Cloudy golden body. Nondescript aroma. Somewhat wheat character in the flavor. But, if I did a blind taste I might think itís a Pale Ale instead. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad, not not necessarily hugely great.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice light yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dissipates and leaves some light stringy lacing clinging nicely to the glass. The smell was slightly malty with some orange and light flavors of wheat. The taste was kinda sweet with a touch of bitterness coming through. The aftertaste was mainly sweet and it had a quick dry finish. On the palate, it sat mainly light but also displayed a light refreshing quality running about my mouth and tongue. The carbonation was good for the American Pale Wheat Ale style and for me. Overall, I say this is a well worthy APWA to have again.

probstblueribbon (3008) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam NY, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Slightly hazy light golden with a frail white head. Aroma: Dusty, wheaty, some citrus, a touch soapy(?), a touch resinous and herbal, refreshing. Palate: Medium-ish body, relaxed carbonation. Flav.: Quite a bit of wheat character, faint citrus/resin, a touch perfumed...like coriander, pretty light, not entirely successful; dry with limited bitterness and a fairly clean, grainy/wheat/citrus/dusty finish.

Wasnít expecting much from this American Wheat Ale and my expectations were met!
