3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark rusty brown colored body, clear. Nose is pale and transparent maple-centered... some nutty hops, chewy caramel and cedar flavored malt... not terribly impressive, very subdued and quiet nose, when it could be more assertive. Flavor is cracked grains, some scotch-like malts, maple, rum, tobacco, etc... but not really interesting at all. A light bit of roast seems out of place, and as far as the wheat character is concerned, I guess I missed it entirely.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Disappointing. Low head but nice lace. Just a little malt and a slight carbonic bite. Balanced body, but so boring.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Red/brown bosy with an off-white head. Aroma is light malty with hint of hops. Flavor is smoothing malty with a hint of caramel and light bitter. Reminds me more of a pilsner than wheat ale. Refreshing but not exactly exiting.

Draft at the brewery tap. A nut brown beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also a light touch of wheat. The flavor is sweet malty again with primary notes of caramel, but also lighter notes of wheat, nuts, and hay, leading to a bitter finish.

Amber pour with small off-white head. Nose of light banana and wheat. Flavor is roasty with wheat and just a hint of fruit. Nice mouthfeel and good body for a wheat. Just a touch of roast on the finish.
