3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color with little head. Spicy wheat aroma. Fairly sour taste along with the expected wheat. Much drier than I would think for this beer. It didn’t really impress me; different is not always better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold with a white soapy head. Hopped aroma with notes of leaves, pine, and lemony sweet candy. Softly bitter with loads of lemon drop candy. Wheat and grassy malts. Clean, soft, and mild. A bit of brewers caramel and yeast in the acidic finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
When I first had this beer I believe it was server too cold or I simply had a bad bottle. The point is, I liked it much better the second time around. Poured hazy yellow with a tint of green. Great musty lemon and lite pine hop aroma. The taste was difficult for me to describe but I’d say there was some lemon flavor along with mild sweetness (cookie dough or candy of some type) but very unlike any wheat beer I’ve had. I enjoyed it very much.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 Pours a darker goldenrod color. Aroma of tropical/passion fruit (Papaya)! Flavor is spicy and hoppy, somewhat thin. Still getting fruit juice aromas and tastes. For the style, the most flavorful beer I’ve had. Refreshing and a great beer! Thanks to Psych Prof for this one!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright orange/clear coloured body with a thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of pure american/citrus hops with little else-very pungent though! Light-bodied; Mild wheat/coriander seed flavours with citrus & hop freshness. Very light flavoured though-a bit dissapointing! Aftertaste bland and somewhat hoppy, not too powerful. Overall, a decent summer wheat, but I was expecting more from this, though! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Vienna, Virginia on 31-July-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Didn’t really have a whole lot of wheat beer qualities, it tasted great & was very enjoyable, but wasn’t really brewed to the style, copper color, small white head, a bit of lacing, slight bubble gum in the nose, very rich & smooth, some hints of bread & yeast in the flavors along with some clove or other spice, malty finish

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 Dark straw color with a white head. Aroma is citrusy, apricots, grapefruit, and very tropical. Flavor is sharply bitter and acidic (good) until mid palate when bready, sweet malt and deeply American hops with an orange peel oiliness take over for the finish. This is the Sauvignon Blanc of the beer world. Almost too good.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Piney. Very piney. Slightly spicy, nice and bitter. Great sweet malt. So fresh! But not in a sticky way like Grants Fresh Hop. Why can’t I find something like this in Buffalo? @ Buckeye Hoptoberfest, hopped by them

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours out a nice golden cloudy color with a pretty decent lacy head. It has a nice hoppy aroma with notes of citrus. The taste is much more balanced than any other wheat I’ve had, you almost can’t even tell it is a wheat. The hoppy flavor does a nice job of bringing balance to this brew, making a tasty lower alcohol brew that actually has some depth.
