Sour taste I wasn’t expecting. Copper color, looks like a wheat. I expect better from Schlafly....this is more of a sour wheat.

Cloudy gold pour with a one finger, creamy to fluffy bright white head, that fades quickly to a thick skim, but has great retention and leaves decent lacing from there. Aroma is wheat, cereal, spicy, floral, dank and spicy citrus hops. Flavor is wheat, lemon, light grassiness, spicy citrus and a bit of sesame toastiness. Light body, neutral, slightly chalky feel, medium, sharp carbonation. Good stuff, crisp and refreshing, the hop notes work well with a wheaty malt base.

Not retired, part of the 2017 summer sampler. Nice cloudy and hazy straw color. Def hoppy and a little grassy taste. Easy drinking. Much better than last years sampler offering of the Yakima wheat.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2017 Bottle. ABV says 5.0%. It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, pine, malts and some grain. The taste was similar to the aroma with more citrus, pine, malts, grains and wheat. Good stuff.

jgb9348 (6250) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2017
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a nice, three centimetre tall pure white head, that fades relatively quickly. Aroma of fresh cut grass, light malt, some flowers and hay and a dose of very light yeast notes - pretty mild, for sure. Light-bodied; Sharp grassy and floral flavours at first with some moderate wheat and dry hay notes with a little sweetness from caster sugar and finishes with a little hop bitterness from grass, but not much going on. Aftertaste shows the grass, hay and wheatie notes, but without much hops or bitterness noticeable, just dryness. Overall, not too exciting here, but showing some flavours and dryness which may make this nice for some, but definitely passable for most, unless you love wheat-based ales. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia on 24-April-2017 for US$2,49 sampled at home in front of the store on 14-June-2017.

Strong grass and spearmint nose. Hazy yellow, thick head, good lace. Lemon, grass, spearmint. Medium body, soft carbonation. Very refreshing and quaffable.

12floz bottle (BOD: 04.05.2017) as part of Schlafly’s summer "patio (12-)pack," not at all "retired." Also ABV is 5%. A big bubbling head forms on the pour in a pint glass. Color is neon-yellow with some haze. Green leaves and lemon zest aroma translates to a thin bodied, lemon-herb palate. Meh.

Bottle - big pillowy head, bright medium yellow/straw color, good size grapefruit citrus hop aroma and flavor, fair sweet wheat backbone, mild hop slice finish, very good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at Parkville Microbrew Fest 2017. Comes a hazy gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, malt, and grain. Taste is grapefruit, pine, malt, and wheat. Nice.

Draft. Hazy apple juice body, medium white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some spicy, tangerine. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit/tangerine, some orange, light wheat spicy. Light-medium body, light effervescence, nicely drinkable.

3.2
thegreenrooster (4396) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle at 5% bottled on 2/10/17. Un-retired I guess. Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a real nice citrus hop. Flavor is lemongrass and wheat malt with very little bitterness. Pretty decent hopped up wheat ale. Would be great for summer outdoor activities.
