4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have loved everything that I’ve tried from Leinenkugel’s so far. Outstanding sweet, light, and drinkable.
From old tasting notes. Pale yellow gold color. Big bubbly white head. Crisp lemony malt nose. Refreshing citrus malt flavor hints at lemon peel and apple. Brief dry finish. Carlisle (743) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Draft. Pours light gold color with white head that dissipates quickly and lacing. Light malt with honey notes and some mild bitterness in the finish. Not much of a wheat beer.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 12/5/2016. Pours fairly crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of honey, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with lighter notes of lemon, banana, bubblegum, pepper, clove, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of honey, pale malt, and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste honey, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with lighter notes of lemon, banana, bubblegum, pepper, clove, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light banana/clove, and herbal yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of honey, pale malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately creamy/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a nice pale wheat ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of honey, pale malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Clear golden yellow with an average white head. Fair lacing. Aroma is wheat, stale bread, and honey. Kind of skunky. Taste is wheat, sour malt, stale bread, tin, and a faint glimpse of honey. Watery and thin. Meh. BeerRenter76 (1014) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 6/8/08. My first beer out of a four variety sampler case. It looked flat with its rapidly disappearing head and minimal carbonation, very little lacing was left. The aroma was of honey and malt. It was watery and the flavor was not good. in its defense this one was served a little too soon and it wasnt adequately cooled. I think i got a bad one.

Bottle. Clear straw gold with minimal head. Sweet doughy flavor with very little bitterness. Ok weiss. beer_rookie (561) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Pours a light, brilliant golden color. Well carbonated. Pours two finger short lived head. Some lacing. Very filtered. I expected it to be cloudy. Beautiful clear color.ozzy70 (1148) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Aroma is slightly honey. Wheat and bready. It smells a little like a honey buttered roll. <a>Taste is sweet bread, and honey. It’s different than the nose however. There’s a little bitterness on the back end. It’s not too sweet. It really doesn’t have a lot of flavor, but it does taste good.
Mouthfeel is clean and refreshing. Very drinkable. Finishes slightly wet.
Overall, it’s not amazing. But it is tasty. I would have it again.
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear and golden. Aroma of grains. Tastes of wheat and no honey.
