2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a mix 12 bottle sampler. Yellow pour. Smells like the mash - grain and honey. Taste is sharp grainy also - with caramel malts and wheat. Not my fav.

Clear golden color with a large foamy white head that left lots of sticky lace. Light lemon and grain nose. Easy drinking light beer. Lemon citrus flavors with some lime, light toast, and a subtle bitterness in the finish. Solid sessionable American wheat.

Hazy yellow gold pour with minimal white head. Citrusy, green light hops Kinda like an american hefe with lemon juice and weed. Interesting, but not exactly my cup of tea.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with fata2683. Pours a hazy pale gold with a moderate white head that lasted through two-thirds of the glass and left a nice layer of foam with each sip. There is not much going on in the aroma department with this beer. Perhaps a few notes of wheat and lemon, but that’s it. The flavor is grainy wheat with a bit of lemon. Very mild bitterness at the finish.

It’s a really good thing that Sweetwater makes better beer than names. They name their beers like tipsy frat boys, but they make beer like true pros. This is an American wheat. There’s not a lot of hop character, nothing all that out of the ordinary, but there is a very forward wheat maltiness and a very slight tartness that makes this incredibly refreshing. Good beer, although I’d probably buy the Hummer instead.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little on the lighter side of wheats here with a toned down grain profile. A touch of banana hiding in there with the requisite lemon citrus flavors. Pale yellow color with a big ol white head. Toasty grain aroma. Decent but nothing to send home mama.

Bottle best before August 2, 2010. The more exciting thing about buying this Tackle Box is that I get some seriously fresh Sweetwater IPA. But, all in all this American styled wheat beer isn’t all that bad for a style I usually don’t like. The typical flavors of wheat and toned down fruity notes are here with very light citrus, but everything is really clean and balanced. It’s a light bodied, mild wheat ale to quench the summer thirst and is serviceable as such. But as with other American-style wheats, this lacks the strong esters or citrusy punch that a good German or Belgian wheat may have.
