Tasted on 7/18/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours hazy dark orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to an average, bubbly collar of lace. The nose is a pretty strange caramelized wheat malt with a briny, fruity and citrus aroma. The flavor is the same with more lemon peel, very salty and dry on the back. The body is light with lively, stinging carbonation, and a medium salty and lemon peel finish. Although this isnít my favorite, it is very easy to drink.

The body is a little heavy to be a sessionable summer beer, and it tastes a lot like a Blue Moon with a little salinity in the finish. Not bad, but Yazoo has been making big strides recently and this isnít nearly up to their more recent standards.

Terrible beer. Small steps above a commercially brewed beer, Nashville has such a weak beer scene. Nose dominated by corn, yeast, and slight hints of lemon. Taste is dominated by a metallic flavor. The only wheat is a slight hazy color. Pass on this.

tnkw01 (1113) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. Not a very good example of a hefeweissen beer. Cloudy, surprisingly small head. Aroma was weak, a little like grass. Taste was very weak and watery.

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Cloudy yellow, no head. Smells a bit grassy, maybe a touch of banana. Completely still, almost flat. Taste is a bit stale, some wheat-like notes. Ok, I guess.

Nice summer beer. Crisp, refreshing, and nothing too challenging. Enjoyable easy drinking.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Hazed yellow pour, white head. Wheat ale meets Berliner. Light lemon tang, wheat, yeast, spice. Soft and refreshing.

Picked up a sixer at local store. Nice lemony wheat beer. Very crisp and fresh. There is a tartness to it. Very enjoyable beer

jcnielsen (2108) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2014
On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Malty, yeasty, slight citrus flavors. A easy drinking summer beer, but nothing great.

Iíve had this on multiple occasions both in bottles and on draft, and for some reason this tastes exceptional on draft, but really boring in the bottle. This rating is based off of the draft version. Very strong tangerine, citrus, and light peach flavors, with some nice wheat notes and crisp yeast flavor.
