A mixture of wheat and caramel hit the nose first. I don’t know, though... it seems there is something there that is a bit off. I can’t quite place it. The flavore comes in with a hoppy touch on the caramel from the nose. Not quite as much wheat, but it is still there. Nothing overtly offensive, but nothing too exciting . Pretty much what expected.
"slightly more interesting than their regular wheat, but not necessarily better. nice fresh bite to it, but otherwise it’s pretty standard stuff. not really recommended."

Average Wheat beer. It’s a "not bad, not good" kind of beer. Slightly bitter aftertaste. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2010

Deep amber, with a thick white head that fades. It is hard to believe that this is a wheat beer. Very little of that wheat tang - a positive in my book. 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2009
hazy copper pour with a small white head.sweet taste and aroma, fun to try but i won’t pick it up again.

Draft from the brewery. The color was far from amber; closer to a gold in fact. Decent aroma of malt. Slight cherry flavor. A bit watery. Overall, distinctly average. tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2009
I couldn’t tell what color it poured exactly, then I red the label. So I guess it’s amber. With a pretty unimpressive head that dissipates with no evidence left behind.
So what if its not a masterfully crafted beer, it is tastey. Definitely malty, sweet, with a hint of brown sugar.
It comes across as a very drinkable and thin version of a fairly malty red ale. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a white head. Grainy and dry with a hint of citrus and honey but more wheaty. Thin with some caramel malt. eh. jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a decent fizzy head. Smells of a veryt nice malt grain and caramel. Tastes of a grainy, wheaty malt, straw, some citrus, very nice maltiness. Almost like an irish red. Pretty good stuff.
