3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells almost more like a pilsener than an American wheat. Not real flavorful, but has a quite dry finish. Strange how pils-like this is to me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a near clear, pale gold-hued body with a small-sized, white that soon peters out.
Smell: Largely smelling of tart lemon, though by no means is this a particularly pungent aroma. Also some wheat notes and a rather tenuous tone of spice.
Taste: Modest taste of malted wheat with some simple sugary flourishes. Full pinch of freshly-grated lemon zest yields some citrus character and a little bit of tartness. No more than a very, very subtle touch of hop bitterness. Equally subtle hint of spiciness. A crisp finish rife with lemon.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation along the lines of a soda.
Drinkability: Light, refreshing, drinkable -- very on-track for the humble wheat ale style. If those aren’t things you’re interested in in terms of a beer, then you’d best just steer well clear of this one. As for me, it’s a pleasant, summertime brew.

The aroma is interesting with wheat, citrus, yeast, malt, and grassy hops. The appearance is yellow with some hazing and particles but not much. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin but OK for the style. Overall an easy drinking refreshing sumer brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Unfiltered yellowed-tan. Thin white head. Mild canned peach aroma. A little towards the end of it’s lifespan, this beer only has two days to go before the best before date. Mellow medium body, a pretty insipid beer. Delicate fruity tones, stale wheat starting to turn pungent. Drinkable, but pretty unimpressive.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Aroma of (Already.Been.Chewed) Juicy Fruit. Golden yellow color, white head, not much haze for an unfiltered wheat. Hints of white grape juice in the nose. A touch of bread and wet dog. Not much for Taste. All I really taste are the Wheat Thins I snacked on about 20mins ago. The lightest amount of tangy wheat character. Very disappointing as far as flavor goes. Medium bodied, nice hearty texture. Although it is quite sessionable, I just expect more a flavor profile from such a strong brewery.
My 70th Wheat Beer.

Bottle from Danny boy. Clear yellowish color. Light white head. Aroma is clay, sweet malt, citrus and grain. Taste is sour malt, orangey notes that fade into nothing. Finish is oddly absent. Oh there’s the aftertaste! Oh no.
