Bottle; poured a dark, ruddy gold with not much head at all. Aroma of wheat, honey, and slightly bread and sweet. Flavor was actually better than expected. Pretty darn sweet with a lot of honey; some earthiness in the finish. Yeast and wheat throughout. Much better than expected.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle purchased at Blue Max in Burnsville, Minnesota. Brewed in LaCrosse, Wisconsin according to the label. Pour is clear golden copper with a noisy 1 1/2 inch off white head. Aroma of some grape fruit sweetness, wheat and menthol yeastiness. Taste is is fruit grape sweetness initially, with some wheat following close behind. The finish is crisp and clean with some mineral and apple notes. Palate is thin to medium, moderate carbonation - easy drinking beer. Simple, but nice.

GABF 2009. Damn it, thought these guys were from Connecticut. Still canít cross off that state I guess. Great clear golden color with a nice foamy white head. Aroma is wheat, spices, pale malt, and citrus. Flavor is sweet pale malt and wheat with lemon, banana, citrus/floral hops, and yeast. Palate light and somewhat refreshing. Decent overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a pub glass. The beer pours a brilliant light amber to medium yellow color, with a moderate white head. The nose showed some medium crystal malt, along with a slight floral touch of hops, and some restrained yeast esters. The palate gave caramelly notes, again showing medium crystals, followed by slight fruit from the yeast esters. Overall, lacking in complexity, but not a total disappointment.

Not the best beer Iíve ever. I think this batch may have been sitting around too long on the shelves of my local BevMo as it had a really musty odor and very little head. Rather easy to drink, but not terribly pleasant on the palate.

12oz bottle. Clear golden color. Aroma of corn bread. A hint of honey. Flavor is of bready wheat and more cornbread. Sharp, fizzy mouthfeel. Not too pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent typically carbonated orange colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was bready and mild fruit. The crisp semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops breads dough and orange. An OK brew just nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle: pours amber/gold ever slightly so cloudy, Iím not getting any head out of this one. Smells of wheat yeast and malts. Light taste, sweet and thin. The malts give a weird aftertaste, but Iím not hating this brew.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Pours a clear golden color. Not very good. Aroma is distinct, like rotten bananas, or something equally repulsive. Very doughy.
