Bottle thanks to beastie. Enjoyed after a long day and a beautiful bike ride home. Cloudy gold pour with ample head. Aroma: light citrus, my kid’s apple juice, dust, more apples and banana-y esters. Pretty low key, though. Moderately sweet; toasted wheat cereal; short minimally bitter finish. Light body, average carbonation, but still feels a little sluggish. Overall: based on comparison with beastie’s rate, I gather that nostalgia/homerism is worth about a full point. Makes me fear what his rating of Manny’s will look like.

Draft at the brewery. Light yellow color. Not a lot of flavor. Kind of watered down. Pass BillWyce (1086) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Pours hazy straw color with a 2-finger white head. Aroma is lemony and grassy. Body is light, with a touch of a soapy feel. Flavors of lemon and grass, with a note of black pepper from the wheat. e303 (287) - - MAY 8, 2015

Cloudy straw/gold color; Light to medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of wheat, clove, & citrus; Flavor of wheat, yeast, some bananas, and citrus; Finish is slightly tangy; Not bad. OmegaX (1374) - Florida, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma is wheat, cracker, light grass, banana/bubble gum. Flavor is similar with a more pronounced wheat flavor. Sessionable and overall quite nice. odannyob (151) - Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2015
maybe, it was the other beer i’d had prior to this one, ’cause this one, the unfiltered wheat one, disappeared before i could mention the previous. and i ain’t much 1 for wheat brews.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 5/9/2015. Pours hazy/cloudy bright golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness and slight bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.4%. Overall this is a very good pale wheat ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2015

Glass: Sam Adams Perfect Pint.
Appearance: Cloudy straw to golden body with a tall and rocky foamy white head.
Aroma: Aroma has a hint of spice in it with light lemon, rather mild and clean.
Taste: Really mild, crisp with hints of malt sweetness and a dash of lemon and orange. Very mild.
Palate: Light bodied and crisp with sharp carbonation.
Overall: Nothing that excites, but it’s a clean wheat ale that would be refreshing on a hot day.
