Bottle. Poured a medium amber color. Pretty clear. White head is medium lived. Good lacing. Aroma is wheaty, some spices, touches of the amarillo hops. Nicely balanced. Taste is somewhat spicy and malty. Hops kick it up a bit. Fairly well done.

bottle, pours a hazy golden color with a fat fluffy white head. sweet floral aroma that is very hoppy. very sweet wheaty taste with a nice tart hop balance. a touch of fruity banana flavor lingers at finish with a sweet candy flavor. I didnít expect such hoppiness from this, but it is enjoyable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 January 2008. Bottle from last year. Golden yellow body with a small white head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit with very light resin. Lots of grapefruit citrus in the flavour, but a lot less than last time. (7+) Average palate. Excellent quaffable brew, but obviously time has diminished it somewhat. 7/3/7+/3/16 - 3.7
<P>August 2004. Nice golden body with a smallish head. Some haze and floaties. Big grapefruit aroma with a lemony undercurrent. Hops are pleasantly dominant in the flavour, leaving a long lingering hoppy aftertaste. Bit of green pellety notes in the finish. Palate is a touch light but appropriate to the beer. Not at all what I expected, but delicious nonetheless. Thanks for the trade Joey_Capps 9/3/9/3/16 - 4.0

Slightly hazy golden-orange colour. Absolutely luscious aroma of sweet fruit and grapefruity hops. Crisp, refreshing body. Hop flavour is big, but not overpowering. Flavours of lemon, grapefruit & pine. Really nice stuff! Thanks for jercraigs for sharing.

I am impressed by this american wheat and Iíll tell you why: it doesnít taste like water! Every american wheat I proffer to my palate tastes bland and watery. This beer is the crisp wheaty, mild citrus qualities of a wheat yet with some kick ass hops to smack you around a bit!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Heavily aromatic, mainly passion fruits (peach, tangerine and lemon. The grains bring forth biscuits and caramel in the aroma.
An interesting, unorthodox approach to the style but I donít find this to be all that different from loads of others. It is hoppier, no doubt, but whatever the hops bring they take away equally. Notes of lemon and other citrus fruits.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: You can definitely smell the "gumball" in the aroma as well as grapefruit. Pours a hazy orangish-gold with a big white head with good retention. Flavor is actually a little weak. Not much in the initial flavor and than a slight hop grapefruit taste balanced with a little citrus and sweetness in the finish. Not bad, but the flavor is a little on the weak side.

Golden pour with a bit of head, good crisp hop aroma. Tart finish makes it a good thirst quencher. Definate lawnmower beer. Doesnít have much common wheat beer flavors.

Decent summer beer, light orange color, lots of fruity yeastyness in the aroma. Great flavor, better than most I have had in the past. I would recommend checking this one out!
