Part of a six pack sent to me for my birthdat. This really should be called "Blue Star Light". Its very weak in flavor with your traditional banana and spice notes. Refreshing nonetheless.

Semi- cloudy gold color with a big lively head of fluffy white foam. Dry corn husk and honey wheat bread up front with reserved florals and maybe a touch of stone fruit or apricot in the middle. Dry grainy finish. Very quenching and palatable.

Bottle at the Corner Pit Taipei. I expected a lot. It fell short. It hasnt got as many wheaty characteristics as one would expect and it really doesnt stand out. It was refreshing and light tho. Maybe I have rated this lower than it should be given I paid 250nt. Overall, not bad, but just not fantastic.

gripweed57 (2130) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2017
From old tasting notes. Cloudy honey gold color.foamy white head. Fragrant floral malt aroma. Dryish wheat malt flavor is soft and silky, but lacks complexity. Brief dry finish.

Kleg (207) - The Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2017
Cloudy gold pour with a thick white head and good retention. Minimal lacing. Solid, clean and smooth wheat ale. Light lemon notes. Refreshing. No bitterness or hefe flavors.

bytemesis (8117) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Tap. One of those classics that I just never rated. Pours cloudy golden, medium white head, nice lacing. Aroma is light, wheat, floral notes, grain, lemon zest. Light plus sweet, minimal bitterness. Medium body, a bit of acidity. Lacks the banana and clove of a German hef, but not bad in its own right.

A decent but not overly memorable beer. Smooth wheat beer without much bitterness.

Wolfenkopf (193) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2016
The aroma is a nice hearty wheat. Love it. The brew is a crisp gold. The taste is just like the aroma, wheat, but a bit lighter than expected. Very nice flavor. The palate slapped with a strong carbonation that takes a good while to fade, but the aftertaste of the wheat is mild. I usually dont go out of my way to purchase wheat beers, but if I found this at a party, Id be a very happy guest.

drpimento (3528) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Fairly light, mild aroma. Flavorso slightly reminiscent of Bavarian wheat beer. One of the best American wheat brews.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor. Hazy amber body with huge head. Nose is hops, spices and wheat. Taste is hops, yeasty with lemon notes. Fruity in the finish. Decent.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle at The Happy Monk. Hazy golden but pouring with so much foam like 4 inches. Very annoying. Lots of bubbles. That hed fizzles away soon enough. The aroma is very bright like sweet wheat. Flavor is sweet and fruity. Airy body. Strange to place. Like other north coast beers, mwaaa.
