COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American-style wheat ale brewed with 30% malted wheat and 2 row barley. Low hopping rates allow the refreshing aroma and citrus flavor of a late addition of lemon grass to dominate. This unfiltered beer retains all of its protein, flavor, and some of its yeast, resulting in a traditionally cloudy appearance. 2000 North American Brewers Asc. Gold Medal

WTF? So I bought the Tommyknocker sampler and all SUCKED, minus maybe the dopplebock. This one looks bad, orange. Theres almost no aroma, maybe cookies? The taste is all lemon-grass with a little wheat. Are there any hops here? I understand being unfiltered, but WTF are these little black grains in my glass? Black? Fuk Tommyknocker!

Bottle@tkcbb. Orange. Doughy yeasty, wheat malty nose. Sort of wheat ale. Some spices, coriander seeds, us bland wheatyness. This is a wheat ale, bland, and slight messy. Has some golden honeyness too, but already lost interest in it..

Bottle. A- Grass, wheat, lemon, corn. A- Golden color, cloudy liquid, minimal white head. T- Wheat, lemons, herbs, corn. P- Light body, creamy texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- Not sure what the unusual aroma and taste is but I am assuming it is the lemon grass. Kind of helps it on the palate but hurts it on the nose. It was nothing special and really just another wheat beer.

Bottle. Pretty straight ahead with some wheat and citrus. On the thin side. Pretty unremarkable.

This beer was from a bottle. It has a thin head that leaves a thin lace in the glass. Nice fruity aroma with a citrus finish.

Beer of month club offering. Pours a hazy yellowish color - not all that attractive looking. Faint nose of some lemon, grass and a little wheat. Taste is very simple - not bad, just not much to it. A little lemon - and a touch of malt. Pretty close to a water with some lemon, all in all. Drinkable, just a little boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A cloudy golden brown body. A nice white head that faded to a white coating. A nice wheat aroma that had a tartness that mixed well with the tartness of the lemon. Flavor was similar. Although the beer was two dimensional it was refreshing. A smooth finish that had a moderate mouth feel.

"Hefe like in it’s banana spice aroma and flavor. Maybe a little thinner, with a touch more grassy hops and a little cereal. So so. Probably won’t revisit..."

Poured from bottle. Clear golden color, no head. Rotten fruit aroma. Light body with a sweet rotten fruit flavor and a light finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Trouble calling a wheat. Can’t really place... Tasted like a crappy fruit beer mixed with a dry lager

Pours a hazy yellow with two fingers of head. Aroma is wheat. Somewhat corney. Flavor follows and is sweet. Medium to light bodied. Nice beer
