MrBunn (2458) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle (already available in early August!!??) Pour is a very clearand fairly light gold color... head is minimal and aromas are of sweet malt, grass and flowery hops. Flavor is sweet malt presence with a bit of a metallic edge to it that is a little off-putting. The aftertaste twists a little south through the metal and all that, ending on an unfavorable note.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2008
Pale golden, slightly hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is bready and lightly crackery. A touch of soft herbal character and a lightly sulfurous note. Fairly minerally crispness. Very nice fresh malt character with a nice zesty minerally hoppiness. Good balance with a clean light maltiness that is well-integrated with the bright, zesty minerally hoppiness. Soft, creamy palate. Delicious brew and highly underrated.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2008
on tap @ papago... pours a strange hazy brown shade of yellow but not golden with a whitish head. smells dry and bitter... pale grainy, a little earthy yeast, lemon juice, orange zest, spice and touch of caramel-y sweetness. the palate is quite dry and bitter as well. grassy, vegetal flavors mix with graininess and a little acidity. clean dry yeasty finish with a bit of a skunky aftertaste. medium body, dry and clean. i could see day drinking a lot of this...

StuffWine (128) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2008
Clear yellow with small white diminishing head. Nice aroma of sweet doughy malt. Pleasant but thin flowery hop flavour with slight sweet malt finish. Soft on palate. An easy to drink and relaxed ’soft’ beer, but not exciting.

Bottle brown, 500 ml
Aroma is very distinctive, gentle, creamy, mild, flowery. Head is very nice, creamy, milky white, some flowery, aromatic hops, bitterness on palate dominating over the mild, malty sweetness, refreshing, easy going and drinkeable, citrusy and tangy. A part of that head id very firm.

obguthr (3840) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2009 Very weak hay smell. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Pronounced hay flavor with a trace oflemon. Grass finish. Overly bitter for style. It doesn’t come close to measuring up to their wheats.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2008 White, three finger head with a beauty of a golden body. Very clean with a touch of citrus. Easy to go for a few of these.
