3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle pours hazy light yellow with a medium bright white head. Aroma is strong citrus, orange juice, peel, and hops, some floral honeysuckle notes as well. Lighter bodied, strong cracked wheat and whole grain cereal notes with a light finish of mild floral bitterness and a thin peppery touch. Not bad, not incredible.

Slightly cloudy yellow-orange in color... Wheaty, slightly off aroma... Not much complexity here, just a basic kind of boring wheat... Pass this over

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours almost clear, pale gold hue. The head is small and light. The aroma is faint, but smell of light citrus and light yeasty notes. The taste is not full, but there are some decent hints of citrus and hops that make for a crisp finish. It is a fairly drinkable summertime beverage because the taste is so subtle and light. On the otherhand the from a Wheat perspective it misses due to the lack of anything to remember it by.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle
Appearance Pours a cloudy, bright yellow gold with a pillowy white head. The foam leaves behind spotty lace.
Aroma: Bread dough, banana, citrus essence.
Taste: Spicy hops, fruity yeast, banana. Finishes clean and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate fizz.
Overall: Pretty enjoyable for a style I don’t go after. I got this pretty fresh, so the hops are standing out quite nicely.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: clear yellow under a lingering white head surrounded by a weak bubbly collar. Swirls with minimal head and not much else.
Nose: touch of lemon mixed in with bread crusts, husked grains, a dash of cracked pepper, and raw citric skins.
Palate: American wheat all the way. Soft breads mingle with lemon skins, the bitterness lingering in the back. Cracked pepper in the breath while toasted bread crusts and raw grains dance along the edges. Softest up front with a full middle and finish.
Final Thoughts: another solid brew from Sweetwater. Now if only they were available in southern Florida life would be gooder.
