2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy golden amber color with a white head. Mild aroma, light fruit. Really missing some of the wheat beer characteristics like the banana esters. Thinner bodied. Overall, not a very good example.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap: Hazy golden hue with a small fading head and okay lacing. The aroma has notes of faint wheat and buttery malts in addition to some light pear and apple (no banana or clove so I guess it doesn’t have Hefe yeast). The taste starts with a slight twang of lemon with weak wheat and yeast notes, zip for depth. The feel is watery. The only difference between this a most crappy American wheats is that this is not filtered. Needs some improvement starting with more traditional yeast characteristics.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap: Light citrus aroma is barely detectable at the brew pub. Cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Very light wheat beer. Light citrus and banana finish. All the taste comes in the finish. Virtually nothing up front.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap: Yellow/orange in color with no head. No aroma to speak of. Thin body not chewy enough for a wheat. Some sweet flavor but it is a watery taste. Not a wheat for sure.

A poor attempt. Overall sweet tasting, lots of residual sugars left here. No balance, lacking in most qualities of a wheat beer.
