kramer (6570) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a small frothy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is fairly bright citrusy hops with a light wheat malt base, no yeast. Some light floral notes as well. The flavor is light and airy with minimal bitterness but plenty of hop flavor. Floral and citrusy with a lingering bitter finish. Light bodied and very easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice, very drinkable and thirst quenching.

Butterscotch pour with a nice topper. Fresh APA type hops, with pine, a little lime, and floral scents. The taste is equally attractive - a light, cidery sourness, pine, lime, and some bready tones. This is a superb and unusual wheat ale. The summery name belies its strength and style.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat and grass. The flavor is more of the same with some wheat, toffee and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Fairly basic, but not bad.

shonobiwan (219) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a light brown color with a little sediment floating around. Lots of white fluffy white head and slight lacing. Aroma was wheaty with a hint of banana and spice. Taste was actually quite great. There was the initial spice and fruitiness you get from a wheat beer followed by generous amount of hops. Drank this while cooking so could not enjoy it entire grandeur but it was an decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
