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

Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that receded at a steady pace down to a thin film with a medium collar and had some fair spotty lacing. The aroma was of a straw malt and a moldy yeast with notes of wheat, lemon grass, a hint of candi sugar and a mild spiciness. The taste was lightly sweet with a hint of candi sugar at first and then became rather yeasty with a touch of lemon grass and a bit of spice towards the finish. The flavor lasted only a short while being mostly of a citrusy wheat taste. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice mild carbonation. Overall a light refreshing brew with a good sweet citrus presence, which matched well with the yeasty wheat flavor...

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. Canít 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

From the first scent to the final aftertaste, this "beer" (?) is foul and off-putting. A pretty and unique orangey tea color pours into a flat, headless liquid which smells as if itís gone bad. First sip tastes - indeed - like tea...like lemon tea which has been left out in the sun until something grows in it. The aftertaste is sour and skunky. Mine had 4.7% alcohol, so I can use the rest of the 6-pack to clean rust off old hinges.

Not a terrible wheat but Iím not impressed by any means. Good pour & bland aroma. Never been a fan of wheats & this doesnít change that stance!

Onionkid (366) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle.Pours an ugly orange with no head to it. Aroma is solely of orange. The taste is really awful, has lemongrass and some odd sourness to it. Tastes like it went bad, but judging from other opinions, thatís apparently what they were going after. Absolutely canít recommend. Site says 5.4% alcohol, bottle says 4.7%.

One of the better wheats I've had recently. Not too sweet or fruity. Has some slight hops. I like for once. Had this on draft at tommyknocker brewpub.

Clear orange with no head, no lace. Taste is not quite right - sugary sweet malt opening that has weak carbonation and even weaker bittering...it could pass as day-old Mountain Dew in which the ice has melted. It doesnít work on any level. Not recommended

Bottled. Hazy golden color. Fruity to the smell. Tones of citrus and wheat. Light body.

I like wheat beers, but this has more of a fruity aroma and taste. Not bad, just unexpected. Not a fan of the cloudiness, almost murky.
