UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 I am a wheat fan but only moderately fond of this brewer - and tend to be rather leery of American Wheat as a style. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a clear pale yellow color with only a trace of a white head that fades instantly. The aroma is faint malts and faint hops. The flavor is light malts and a hint of banana. A rather poor wheat. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 29, 2004

i thought magic hat would come up with a better wheat than this. i assumed it was an attempt at a wit as it was pale, slightly hazy, lightly lemony with some nasty traces of laundry detergent in the finish. thin and boring
Blind rating, bottle.
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, fully diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough).
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.

Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Not much going on to talk about. BuckeyeBoy (7680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle Pours out a yellow topped with a white head. Aroma of wheat and malts. Tast of grain and a touch of hops at the end. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Bottled. Poured cloudy lighter golden with a tall, creamy, sticky white head. The aroma picked up bright earthy wheat and orange zest, with faint undertones of band-aid.. smelled like it was going to be drinkable. The flavor found tart wheat, orange zest, and white spices throughout.. honey and generic pale malts supported.. tangy finish with orange rind and residual grainy sugars. Light-bodied with fairly high carbonation on the palate.. tangy and engaging in spots, but too many grainy sugars in others.. overall very drinkable, but not necessarily good.

12 oz. bottle from mix 12 pack. Pours a slightly hazy gold. Nose is lots of wheat and grain. As it gets real warm I noticed a lot of honey aroma’s as well. The flavor is identical to the nose. I feel this is rated really harshly. It’s a bit better than some ratings imply. Yes, it is simple and light bodied, yet really refreshing with decent flavor. This bottle was still in code, so still fresh. I have NO problem finishing the other bottles. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Lightly sweet and golden with some citrus flavor and spice. Refreshing, but thin. Still a good American wheat. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2007
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Medium to light golden color. Honey, sweet & grassy aroma & taste. Easy drinking summer beer. HogTownHarry (6872) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2006
Bottle (12oz). And I promised myself no more goddam american wheat swill. Pale slightly hazy gold, decent bright white head. Aroma of light sweet grain and dried flower hops, a hint of fruit and yeast, but not much at all. Taste of light candy malt, a little sour grain, mild yeast and candied citrus fruit - sort of hard to swallow for some reason. Thickish, still body, sticky mouthfeel - weird, not awful, won’t have it again. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle: Straw color, fairly clear, thin sudsy white head, fairly decent lacing, light carbonation. Pale wheaty nose, slight citrus zing, seems semi-sweet, a little musty or barnish as well. Sweet grass/straw on the tongue, tangy, minor sweetness, but falls off fairly quickly. Body and mouthfeel are average. Semi-sweet wheaty finish, but its fairly soft and subtle. Clean, but not as big as its counterparts. Needs more umph. Thanks Dan!
