Bottle. Pours hazy yellow. Smells of lemon and wheat. Thin foam lacing. Taste of citus, light grains and refreshing. Enjoyed very much but not a complex wheat beer.
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, and yeast. Taste is similar. Pretty average wheat beer. badgerben (5187) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2011

Bottle at MN Gathering @ Skyview V. Light yellow pour with a small white head. Pretty bland aroma and taste of mild wheat. Okay. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2011
uh, thanks milkmandan. Pale yellow iwht no head. Diactyl. Just what I want in a wheat beer. Tastes like sweet corn.
Relatively new style compared to what? The invention of beer?

Pours a slightly cloudy yellowish golden color with almost no head. Some carbonation bubbles. Smells of wheat. Tastes of wheat with maybe a lemon aftertaste. Not a very good beer. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2011
12oz bottle from John’s Grocery in Iowa City, IA. Pours a mostly clear, yellow, gold tinted body with a finger-width, frothy and fizzy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is very lemony up front with some sourness and a bit of a papery grain. Crisper wheats along with a metallic yeastiness. Not a horrible aroma, but kind of weird. Flavor is worse. Band-aid up front with a wheaty lemon-zest. Papery and grainy pale malts with a bit of a metallic yeast. Finishes with a citrusy band-aid that lacks any hopping and leaves a lengthy aftertaste of band-aid. Thin, somewhat watery body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty bad wheat beer. I can tell there is some lemon-zest and yeasty spice alongside a decent wheat character, but there is a shit load of band-aid in this and it dominates every flavor. I really enjoyed some of the other Madhouse beers I’ve had, so I hope this was just a bad bottle. I will revisit when given the chance, but for now, this sucks.

Pours hazy yellow with light yeast notes. As I wheat beer the palate is muted on the yeast notes. A decent finish. wlajwl (6814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 28, 2011
Very bready aroma but also something off about it, possibly metallic. Taste is a little metallic and notes of fruit, not very good. MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Aroma: heavy clove and sour/boozy, some grass; Appearance: hazy yellow, almost no gold, thin, very bubbly (almost soapy) head on pour that quickly dissipates; Taste: tastes a lot like it smells, heavy clove and floral, some lemony sour as well, pretty darn good but nothing standout, I’ve had other brews that taste a lot like this one does, although I am failing to recall one right at the moment; Palate: mostly floral, good carbonation keeps the flavor in your nose, a good summer beer, I’d imagine (even though its November right now); Overall: prefectly acceptable wheat ale, although nothing monumental about it, being that I’m from Iowa, I’m happy to enjoy this Iowan brew
