UPDATED: AUG 11, 2010 12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a small white head. It has a nice wheat aroma with some citrus. It has a wonderful creamy mouthfeel. This beer is very refreshing. It tastes of wheat, lemon,banana, citrus and cereal. This is a wonderful beer.

I had high expectations for this beer both because it’s a wheat beer and because it’s brewed by SweetWater Brewery. I like a lot of wheat beers but this one has an original taste in its own right.

Rating #7 for this brew. Awesome. 2nd variety from my tackle box. [A] Smell seems kind of like the base for Blue. Just a pale, wheaty aroma. Touch of citrus zest. Some cereal sweetness. [A] Slightly hazed gold. [F] Wheat. More citrus here than the smell would indicate. More sweetness. [P] Nice mouth on this one. Probably the best aspect of the beer. Light. Well carbonated. Very drinkable. Would probably be enjoyed best, ice cold. [O] Surprisingly, I liked Blue more than this. Decent beer. Worth a try, but not a repeat.

Crystal clear pale golden pour with a rather weak white head that quickly fades. Aroma of ... orange marmalade? over hints of bread and caramel. Interesting flavor ... malty in a way I wouldn’t expect for a beer this pale. Medium bodied mouthfeel with spritzy carbonation. No astringency. Nice beer. Was expecting more ’wheat’ character.

On tap at Taco Mac in Woodstock, GA. Hazy golden poor with bubblegum and banana aromas. Flavor is mostly of wheat and a little watery. Meh.

Pours a very light pale with minimal head. It has a nice malty attack which mellows to a wheat/meal finish.

Part of the "tackle box" sampler pack
A: Pours a cloudy pale straw color with a white frothy billowy head. Good retention on this one
S: Tons and tons of peach and orchard fruit (cantaloupe?) right off the bat, wheat, and an interesting yeast strain. Very subtle and delicate nose
T: Again, subtle. Tart fruits, tons of orchard fruits, wheat and that yeast again - not sure I’ve come across this one
MF/O: Light, clean finish, peachy finish, mellow carbonation giving a nice feel to it

This is a very nice representative of what Sweet Water really does well, classic well balanced beers conforming to traditional styles. It is a tough job and rarely gets much credit but damn it can be nice. Aroma is pure hay, smells like the farm. Color is very pale with good lacing. Taste is very crisp and well balanced with hints of caramel and hay. Palate is very well rounded and hay.

Pours slightly orangy yellow, surprisingly clear, full white head that fades, and little lacing. Pleasing aroma, wheat, white grapes. Taste has a little sweetness, slight grape flavor, and more bitterness than expected. Not balanced that well. Light body and pretty low carbonation.
