Draught @ Jolly Roger Taproom, Seattle. Pours a hazy yellow color with a longlasting white head. Has a wheat malty aroma with some weak hints of banana and hops. Wheat malty citrus flavor with banana hints. Sweetish wheat malty finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Some banana, good malt accent. This was a regular at Archer’s Ale House in Bellingham and I always wondered why...until I tasted it.

Tap. Pourd hazy amber color with an average fizzy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate sweet malt, citrus, yeast aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a sweet finish of average duration. Weakest of the brews I tried from this brewer.

Tap @ Jolly Roger Taproom. #2000. Light cloudy, yellow orange appearance with a pearl white head. Mild, herbal hoppy, light pale wheat malty nose. A little mild earthy hoppy, light pale wheat malty, slightly citrusy, and a touch sour flavor. Pretty decent wheat ale.

Draft at the brewery
Very cloudy and deep yellow in color with a big, billowy tall ice-cream head. Flavor is a little bland, stale, soapy... some sour lemon, but not tart. Paper-like, I guess, like chewing on notebook paper. Milky, yeasty nose. Simple.

On tap @ the brewpub. Pours opaque hazy gold with straw highlights and bright white head. Classic look with some sheet lacing to boot. The aroma is mild with grain malts, a hint of wheat and a vague hoppiness. The taste is non-wheat maltiness up front with hints of grainy malts and faint wheat. The wheatiness does grow to go along with notes of ripe banana and a hint of bubble gum as the finish approaches. I also get a hop bite tingling away in the background. Pretty nice hefe.
