I had this when it first came out and wasnt as impressed, ie, I didnt order another. But I have been able to find it more readily and have ordered it several times, and it has changed. It has identified itself as an American (USA!) Wheat, to indicate I think that is not that crappy faux-belgian stuff tasing of bubble gum. It tastes of beer, but with the twist you expect from wheat. It is drinkable and I actually order more than one... or two.

The hints of citrus are so subtle that they are barely recognizable. Aroma is excellent. The appearance is perfect with a good head but not over powering. The taste is mild with a slight aftertaste, not enough to be distasteful. Overall, not my favorite, but definitely something I could drink daily

Comes out of the tap a pretty, hazy solar yellow with a decent white head. Wheaty, lemony aroma is slightly sweet and not strong but still appealing. Flavor is wheaty, yeasty, lemony and quite pleasing. Smooth, subtly tingly texture leaves a wheaty and citrus finish.

The third of the three 22oz bottles from this new brewery. Pours a very hazy, bright yellow with a moderate fluffy white head that recedes fairly quikcly to a thin collar with little lacing. Aroma is sweet with lots of bananas and bubble gum sweetness. There is also a healthy lemon zest presence, but this one almost smells like a hefe. Taste is a bit more hoppy up front with lots of lemongrass and oranges but gives way quickly to the sweet wheat characteristics - fruity. Finish is a combination of the fruits, very slightly tart but also sweet. The mouthfeel is effervescent and well carbonated with a medium body. I’m impressed by this one and I think I may like this better than the other two, certainly more than the IPA. Well crafted wheat beer.

Bomber poured into a pint glass. Pours a semi-murky gold with frothy white head. Aroma of fruit and wheat, with a bit of bubblegum. Taste was a bit sweet and bitter, with a crisp dry finish. Quenching and nice wheat beer, I could drink a couple of these!

Hangover (1152) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Hazy copper pour with a very thin white head. Citrus and banana aroma. Flavor has a lot more banana and bubblegum with none of the citrus from the aroma. This one has a really nice body and has a smooth finish. A bit surprised, never heard of this brewer.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A nice aroma of straw, some oranges and more grains. The flavor is very refreshing; sweet dry wheat, some honey and lemon, in fact this brew is tea-like. Very smooth and well carbonated.

Lightly hazed yellow/gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Light clove, wheat, and paper. Wheaty malt, paper, and a semi sweet finish. Medium bodied and a bit fizzy but not a bad beer.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a bright, hazy gold with a very thin head and no lacing. The aroma is lemons, lime, wheat, and white bread. The flavor is citrus sweetness and a little tartness. The palate is light to medium, acidic, and a little sticky. There is a long, sour aftertaste, but it is mild and kinda nice. Overall, this is a nice wheat ale. Nothing too surprising, but well made.
