Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2010
On tap at Willoughby Brewing Co. -- Pours gold with a small white head. Hay and grass are the only notes that come out. Dry with fizzy carbonation. The cleanest most direct wheat flavor I have encountered.

Yikes. Brewed for the standard Bud Light/Miller Lite crowd. Flavor? What’s that?

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2008
Objectively speaking: Exageratedly clean weizen.
I like: Fresh wheat character, but the barley remains more prominent. Sharp and engaging carbonation.
I dislike: Totally clear… Not much yeast character follows. Absent hops. Seriously, it feels like they’re using a regular ale strain which feels weird in a wheat beer, just a matter of habit perhaps?

Clear with a mild aroma. A bit tangy on the finish but otherwise clean and refreshing.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2008
On tap @ the brewpub: Pours a clear gold with no head. Aroma , some wheat, sweet malts, grassy and herbal. Flavor, thin and doughy, yeast, grassy. Really seemed like a pale lager as far as the taste went.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Had on tap at brew pub. UGH. This was by far the worst of the bunch. Tasted like Bud Light. Seriously. Way too light and tasteless for me.

Sammy (8096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2008
At the brewpub. No aroma. Golden colour without lace or head. Thin mouthfeel, above-average crabonation. Not fresh tasting, a bit apple juice, drying. 12 ibu.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Sample at the brewpub: Pale golden-yellow color with an ultra-thin white head and speckles of lace. Fairly wheaty aroma with a bit of earthy malt. Light, clean body with a mild wheat and hops flavor that doesn’t really pack any punch. The finish is short and does not leave much of an aftertaste aside from some residual wheat flavor. Pretty much the standard "Light" offering that most brewpubs carry.

aracauna (2997) - Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Clear gold and served with a small head. There’s is low aroma. Slight bready malt. Relatively dry flavor. Very wheaty with just the slightest touch of citrus. Clean easy drinking but forgettable.
