3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
6/14/14. 16oz can from Happyís in Cedar Falls. Lightly hazed golden orange pour with a small but satisfying khaki head that cuts in half but sticks. Relatively plain aroma, soft wheat aromatics, light citrus. Plain flavor, but itís nice. Lightly creamy, soft wheat, citrus, a touch of grassiness, and lingering biscuits. Tasty enough.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint can - Hazy golden pour with a foamy white head. Nose is wheat, a bit of mineral, starchy grain. Yep, it smells like a wheat ale. Taste is the same. Wheat, corn, a hint of orange, and a grainy finish. Thick and fluffy with tons of carbonation. Gotta say that Wheat Ale is one of my least favorite styles, though this one must be pretty good for the style because I can at least drink the whole pint and itís pleasant. But damn is this boring.

Given that itís still goddamn cold here in Nebraska, itís strange that Iíve had so many wheat ales, lately. Oh well, Halcyon hit the non-seasonal spot with its pronounced hoppiness and super hazy appearance. I enjoyed the fruity aroma and the candy-like sweetness. While Iíd prefer a brew with more effervescence, creaminess, and flavor, Iíd happily include Halcyon on my summer drinking list. It sure makes a damn decent lawnmower beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A- Lemon, orange, grapefruit, citrus, wheat, subtle hops.
A- Golden yellow color, unfiltered liquid, white head.
T- Citrus, orange, grapefruit, subtle bitterness, wheat, subtle spice.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, soft finish.
O- Been wanting this one for a while. Not sure the age on this can, either it was super fresh or about a year of age on it. Iím assuming the later because of how soft the aroma and taste was. This did play a bit of a factor in my ranking. Iím sure I also wouldíve liked this more in my early craft drinking days. Still, this is a solid unfiltered wheat with a tad bit of tropical fruit bitterness that makes it stand apart.

Rather nice. Golden and very cloudy. Soapy head though it doesnít foam up quite so violently as many wheats. The hops are right on the money, citrusy, at a level of intensity less than an IPA but still considerable.

Perfect summer beer in my opinion. Real beer with thick flavor, but light overall feel.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Filtered straw gold; the yeast always settles in a keg of this and it is the luck of the draw. Banana, sugar, lactic-like cream of wheat. Sort of unpleasantly chemical at times, and surrounded in aluminum and other off mineral notes. Basic bland filtered wheat character. Lightly peppery flavor with a quick bursts of pungent dill now and then. Golden sweet malt flavor, with a lemon tang that is too soft to enliven the watery, lifeless body.
