Good head, definitely unfiltered, bright golden color. Aroma is very light and citrus. Taste is mild. Itís allright but unfortunatley just that.

Not bad I was expecting more but it was just average, didnít taste bad but didnít taste great either, way better with a lemon in it thatís for sure, went down real smooth but donít think iíll get it again.

cloudy golden color with white frothy head. Watery mouthfeel. Rather average for a wheat beer. A bit dry and stale.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cloudy yelow beer with a nice white head. Very little aroma, some wheatiness. Flavour is pretty crappy, a bit of wheaty dryness. Stale musty aroma. No hops, no fruit, no esters, no point.

Fairly clean taste, nothing outstanding. Easy to drink, flavors are mostly that of citrus.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very bright beer - citrus, lemon and fiz. Not as spiced as I would have liked, and the yeast and bannanas donít come out very strongly either. Itís decent as a lite beer, but it doesnít quench my weiss beer craving.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sans Lemon. Damn, I have drank this since it came out and just now get to rate it. Hazy light amber color. Scant head. Tap seems to carry more head. Wheaty, yeasty and a little citrus in aroma. Body is light. Flavor is yeast with a little clove and bananna. Score clearly represents a desire to return to Oregon.
