Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. This must have just come out... Pours with no head over a clear golden body. Aroma of wheat and light hops (mostly citrus). Taste is wheaty with citrus and cereal. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. Not that good for Southern Tier.

GMCC2181 (1554) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 15, 2009
Bottle picked up at SL. Poured into a pint glass. Light orange/yellow color. Small head that faded quickly. Weak aroma of corn adjucnt. Taste is boring as well. Taste like a lager.... not much wheat going on. Light in texture, easy drinking. Oveall, I wouldnt buy this again but its an ok session beer.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2009
Thanks 17thfloor! Pours cloudy golden yellow with a decent lingering white frothy head. Aroma is very grainy and a decent amount of citric fruit , some lemon peel and wheat with some sugar. Flavor starts with a weak sweet citrus fruitiness and picks up a wheat grain flavor and finishes dry on the tongue. Lemon is the predominant fruit and it doesnít get much moving elsewhere. medium body and active carbonation. So so beer, very light and crisp.

Southern Tier does a good job of packing a lot of flavor (or is it "hops"?) into lighter styles of beer. I really like that about them. Here, I am not so sure how successful they were. This was quenching in its light graininess, but didnít have a whole lot of flavor.

bu11zeye (12268) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2009
(12oz bottle) Pours a pale yellow body with spare white head. Aroma of wheat, cereal, and toasted grain. Flavor of wheat, subdued hops (earthy, grassy), and cereal with a dry finish.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2009
12oz. Pours a pale yellow color, clear except for the thousand tiny granules of yeast floating around. A nice compact soapy white head. Good lacing. Aroma shows some Kolsch like smells and some Pilsner malt perhaps. Some subtle wheat notes too but overall this is very mild and kinda bland. Flavor is watery, thin and dry. Disappointing.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of Archer Liquors singles selection (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy lemony straw, small bright white bubbly head that dissipates to a film clings a bit. Aromas are a bit musty, wheaty stink with lemon notes, light fruity esters, but the stink gets to me. That shouldnít be a wheat ale. Initial is liht bodied, preaching some mild grainy and cereal qualities, a touch of hop floral and lemon. Grass and lemon, a touch of breadiness and cereal, but a bit bland overall. Lacks body even for the style. Dissappointing largely. A mediocre wheat ale.
