COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

It was dark yellow and cloudy, reminiscent of a bad urine sample. Fortunately, it did not taste like urine. It was pretty light and refreshing, went well with food.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 Aroma typical of a wheat beer. The flavour? Confused. Very wheaty. Somewhat sour. I can taste and like the hops, but itís not at all bitter. The carbonation has a zing to it that doesnít match the flavour and Iíd rather the carbonation be less. Iíve had worse wheat beers though--the sourness is kept in check and itís thoroughly drinkable, although I would not remotely describe it as smooth. I find this beer is very very hard to describe with words.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Bottle... Hazy, straw-colored ale with a small, frothy, white head. Earthy nose with notes of straw and Amaretto sugar cookies. The flavor is mostly bland, but unoffensive, refreshing and crisp. Fizzy. Decent Summer brew!

out of the bottle. pours a light hazy golden-yellow. Large, frothy white head, very carbonated. citrus aroma. tastes of corn and lemon. slightly hoppy and bitter finish and aftertaste. for a light beer its pretty tasty!

Not my favorite from this company. Had an interesting taste, and at least is better than beers such as bud lite.

This had the flavor intensity of lemony water and not much carbonation. This was just lacking in pretty much every aspect.

Biohazard (10) - USA - AUG 19, 2005
Aroma is a mixture of yeastiness and grass, with some hop aroma. The beer pours a golden yellow, remarkable for the intensity of the haze, even with a gentle pour. Large yeast pellet in the bottom of the bottle. Flavor is marked by predominant banana esters, some phenolic overtones and a marked yeast component. Hop bitterness seems out of balance with a pine resin predominance. Beer is way overcarbonated, with a large persistent white head. Mouthfeel consists of marked carbonation, light body. Overall, a somewhat flawed wheat. Would like to try on tap or a different bottle/batch.

PhillyBeer2112 (2514) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Fair as wheats go. Clean for sure, with that touch of butterscotch corn and metallic finish I get in alot of american wheats. Fair lemony citrus quality. Zesty.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Very odd chemical aroma, somewhat plastic-like with raw fermented grains. Mild citrus. Pale dull hazy gold with thin white frothy lacing head. Light watery body with medium carbonation. Starts a bit lemony with raw wheat and plasticized taste. No hop bitterness. Dull lemony malt water that ran through a mile of stinky plastic pipe. Drain pour.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2005
I tasted a hint of orange peel which of course wasnít added in this somewhat citrusy medium dry beer. It seems like a refreshing summer ale to me and I would definately like to taste this one on tap. Ifyou like wheat beers that have decent amounts of hops, this one isnít bad.

argo0 (11316) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2005
(12oz bottle) Lightly hazed apple juice body topped by small white head. Aroma is medium sweet, orange, floral, light lemon. Taste is medium sweet, lemon/orange, herbal, floral, some tartness. Light-medium body, no real crispness. Unusually hoppy for a wheat beer, but nice nonetheless.
