This is one of my favorite beers of all time. I make it a point to have one at the brewery every year on my birthday. It has an amazing smell and tastes wonderful. It has an almost cinnamon vanilla taste and finishes very smooth. It is sweet but still tastes like a real beer unlike many other very sweet beers. A must for any and every refrigerator. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Absolutely stunning wheat ale; could indeed be my favorite. Slippery mouthfeel is a huge plus. But here, what Im mainly getting is a rich, roasty matl flavor, which is stunning. This is a good one.

Poured a golden apricot color wtih 3 fingers of head that falls to 1 over the beer. The nose was of wheat malts, orange, caramel and hoppy grapefruit notes. The flavor starts with a nice grapefruit hop, that balances with the wheat malt. There are also hints of orange in the malt near the end. The feel was moderate to thick. The drinkability is obsceanly good. The flavor is complex. An American wheat with complexity? Say it aint so!!!

Very good summer ale. I see now that its categorized as a cream ale, and thats probably what made it so good--that creamy hint that makes it stand out.

A great wheat, though not in the german style. Citrus nose and mouth, light bready flavor with a hint of hoppy bitterness. Great out of the keg several summers ago, an ideal warm-weather ale.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Creamy for sure. No really aroma other than some malt/grain. Smooth and almost notes of vanilla. Tap
