RATINGS: 12   MEAN: 2.73/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.74/5   EST. CALORIES: 135   ABV: 4.5%
An unfiltered American Wheat style beer. This beer is golden in color with a slight haze from the wheat and yeast. This beer is brewed with about 25% wheat so that the wheat haze remains suspended. This beer has a light to medium body with some yeasty characteristics in the flavor and mouth feel. This beer has low-medium hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. You should be able to pick up some of the fruity aroma that is typical of this beer style.

Sampled at the brewpub. This is quite cloudy and has a white head that lasts nicely. I taste orange and zest first here. Hops are also tasted and are more prominent than in othet hefes. They add dryness and mild bitterness.

A- Transparent straw yellow body with thick, fluffy, white head. Head has good retention and some lacing is left behind in the glass. Surprised at transparency of this unfiltered wheat beer. S- Light grain and yeast smell with some herbal hop aromas. Light and somewhat bland. T- A grainy taste with hints of peppery spice is upfront with a smooth yeast background. Hops kick in for the finish which is all grain and bitterness. Sweet bready yeast lingers. Not bad but somewhat bland-the citrus zest is definitely missing. P- Medium carbonation and somewhat thin body. O- This one wasnt bad but not as good as I expected. I had this one with and without an orange. I know some people look down on adding fruit to beer but the orange solved all my problems with this one. It was missing a citrus character and the orange added that and made this beer go from mediocre to darn good. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-06-2007 15:33:46

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2008
On tap at the Escanaba brewpub. Hazy, cloudy opalescent orange-tinted straw pour, with a rim of white. Noses in distant lemon (thanks slice). Flavor is a rather flaccid wet wheat sugar and bland white sugar flavor. Not much there. Light alcohol, light sweetness, light lemon fruitiness. This is nothing to get whipped up about. Theres a curt little bit of sourness, but really, really faint. This is more of a beginner beer than the blond. Faint gummy hop glow finishes this example. Somewhat thin bodied. Boring.

Im a sucker for a good wheat beer when its warm out and this was a nice one. Aroma was a little weak but could pick up some citrus. Pour was a nice light gold with a 2 finger white head. Nice and cloudy. Taste was very crisp and refreshing. Citrus with a bready/yeasty backbone and a nice dry aftertaste. Good carbonation carries the flavor throug.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Hazy golden pour with a light frothy head. Has the aroma of citrus and coriander... and something else I wasnt really able to identify, but not good. It was sweet with some spice and just a hit of bitterness, maybe pine? Not a whole lot of carbonation and it was pretty light. Great for people who like Blue Moon and Leinies but not my style.

12/27/07 - Winter Road Trip 07 - Murky yellow w/ orange hues. Big white head, frothy w/ good lacing. Skunky nose w/ banana and citrus, hint of spice and sewer. Thin, fruity taste w/ mild, crisp hop finish. Banana and citrus, spiciness is limited. Ending is a bit muddled w/ skunk/sewer flavor. Eh.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On tap. Mild fruity aroma, light orange oil and sulfury acidic tang. Cloudy golden dull amber with thin foamy lacing head. Light body with light-medium carbonation. Starts with watery wheat taste, light grainy undertones and mild orange-sulfur notes. Mild bittering in the finish with dusty grainy after, chalky bubblegum hints, and a light acidity. Not a bad American wheat, definitely more flavorful than others Ive had.

Skyview (5868) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On draught at the brewpub in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-hazy straw brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a thin white ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of white bread dough, some flowery hops, and a touch of pear fruit. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation with a distinct bread dough and yeast flavor. Finish is slightly sweet, a little watery and then a clean cut finish with no aftertaste.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the Wausau brewpub on 6/24/07: Pours a transparent golden with a thin, frothy white head. Aroma of lightly pale malt and a hint of wheat along with mildly earthy hops. Body starts with decent mouthfeel and a touch of sweetness and grainy malt with some earthy bittering hops toward a drier finish. Overly bitter, needs more sweet balance.
