BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 10, 2009
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 (1504) - 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.

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.

(Bottle at Konttori, Tampere, on 2009-08-08) Yellow and cloudy. Quite large and quickly disappearing white head. Citricness and fruitiness in aroma. Light and dryish palate with medium carbonation. Malts, sweetness, fruitiness, hops and bitterness in taste. Bitter aftertaste.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2009
Clear golden with a tiny head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel and wheat and mild hoppy notee. Flavour was sweet and wheaty with hops, lemons and malty notes. Finished mild bitter.

phaleslu (6430) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Baba Budanís in Cincinnati. Pours clear gold with virtually no head, and the little there is vanishes quickly. Weak aroma with notes of hops, wheat, fruit, and sugar. Flavor is also disappointingly weak, with a little each of wheat, citrus, and hops. Light body and very smooth, medium carbonation. Crisp, quick finish. Very easy to drink but underwhelming in every way. Southern Tier can do so much better than this.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2009
Bottled (Konttori, Tre).
Slightly hazy orange color, small white head. Honeyish malty aroma, some orange peel and wheat. Flavor is sweetish malty, spelt wheaty, grainy. Short grainy aftertaste. Not very exiciting: aroma was ok but taste is not very good.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2009
Dark yellow colored with cloudy appearance. Little white head. Lemony hopped aroma with thin wheaty note. Thin to medium bodied, carbonated palate. Flavor is similar with lemon and sour bite, hops last in aftertaste with some soapy tangy dryness.

Christian (11092) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2009
Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malt, with some sulphur notes. Thin malty flavour, with more of that cabbage-like sulphur hitting me. Nice and bitter finish though.
