This is a pretty standard APA but with the BR endge that I love so much. Pours a lovely, golden haze. I love how the BR beers look. Not much going on in the aroma department, but that is pretty standard for APAs in my experience. I only drink this beer in the summer. Boy does it go down smooth in the summer. This is more of a beer for more average bar goer. Very well balanced, beautiful, above average wheat beer. Good summer brew. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 12, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark very dark gold with a medium white head. Thin in body and mild but it still has a significant wheat flavor. Clean and crisp. The beer has a long finish of lemons. Well done. drowland (8895) - Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Have had this on tap at Bent River many times. Pretty much your straightforward wheat ale on the light side for the common drinkers around. Not bad, though. KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - AUG 13, 2009
On tap at brew pub. Slightly hazy gold color. Nose is like that of a weak fart. Flavor is slightly grassy but faint. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2009
On tap at Bent River brewpub. Golden yellow, no head. Very light nose of wheat and light honey. Taste of corn and wheat. Lively carbonation feel and a semi burnt malt finish.

Draft at Bent River. Hazed golden orange body. Chunky, bready wheat all over this thing... there’s a light lactic sourness throughout, some stale wood and stale crackers and bread crust. Tastes a bit like unsalted, stale saltine crackers. Medium body, frothy, just a little bit coarse on the palate... but the flavor is downright terrible... old, wet, moldy crackers and bread.

It seems every brewpub has to produce one of these. It’s good looking with a clear gold body and a frothy white head. Nice lacing, too. It smells of wheat flakes with a spoonful of honey and tastes pretty much the same. More of a Summer brew.TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - NOV 22, 2006

Pours a clear light gold with little head. Aroma is faint and grassy with a bit of sour-mash. Surprisingly sharp, bitter flavor makes a lasting impression. Some tartness shows in the middle with hints of grassy grain and a big chunk of clean, crisp lager-like hop biterness. Medium, lively bubbly palate. Pretty crisp stuff.
From the tap, served in a standard bar pint glass. Made a good appearance, poured a clear golden hued amber with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, moderate carbonation overall. Had a pale wheat malty nose, fruity, cereal and crackerish, with a subtle lemony hoppiness. A crisp smooth lightish medium bodied mouth feel, above average drinkability. Cereal and crackerish maltiness at first, followed by a sweet fruity maltiness, a light lemony hop bitterness and a fruity malty finish.
A decent wheat ale from Bent River, dry, tasty and quaffable, a nice year around beer.

Draught at the brewpub. Slightly hazy yellow color with thin white head. Vanilla aroma. Slightly sweet with pleasant cereal grain and vanilla flavor. Unusual, but tasty wheat beer.
