Wonderfully crisp, clean beer. This was the first beer from Southern Tier Brewing that I tasted and reminds me of summer. Canít wait for summer and drinking a few of these around the pool.

Super-bubbly carbonation doesnít take away from the drinkability at all. You could drink this beer all day long. . Drinking this light and fuzzy refreshment gets me daydreaming; I imagine sucking down a six-pack by the pool or while grilling.

SanfordBrewer (1390) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Hazy gold, dense but thin white head, medium body, high carbonation.

Aroma: orange zest, tart wheat, sweet pale malt, leafy hops, and a hint of yeast.

Taste: tart wheat, dark orange, crackery pale malt, leafy citrusy hop bitterness, fruity ale yeast esters, and maybe a hint of corriander.

Complex but quaffable. Very nice flavors and balance.

superspak (2408) - 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.

Hammy78 (722) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2011
Sampled on tap at the brewery. Pours a decent goldish colour. Aroma is a little sweet and of wheat. Taste is a mix of everything you would expect in a classic brew. I would suggest you enjoy this while mowing the lawn, I rated it high because Iím generally a fan of what these guys are doing.

jstraw (1906) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Pale gold with good, creamy white head / Musty nose of grain and honey / Light to medium body, creamy with moderate carbonation and good fruit, and good, dry finish / Perfumed, resinous flavors of grain, grass, lemon, and honey / Probably reflecting my general disinterest in wheats, I enjoy this more substantial one, reminiscent of a Dortmunder.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2010
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Lightly hazed, pale gold body with a bubbly, white head and some initial soda-like effervescence in the body. Smell: Soft, transient scents of soft malted barley and wheat with well-integrated hints of honey, meadow flowers, spice, and lemon wedges. Taste: Blend of light pale and wheat malts with a modest amount of tanginess and sweetness. Freshly floral, lemony hop character with ample bitterness to balance. Light acidity. Small, delicate sip of honey wine dashed with a bit of pepper prior to the drying finish. Mouthfeel: Fairly light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Would pair nicely with sauteed sea bass. Itís light and simple, but yet itís also pleasant and refreshing, exactly what I needed on this hot, sweltering summerís day.
