The best thing I can say about this beer is...it was not bad. That being said - it has a weak flavor, light taste and no palate. And worst of all - low alcohol.

2.8
JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Lightly hazed, light straw color liquid with a voluminous slightly off-white head. Interesting scents of dry wheat and cereal, lime, celery, and grassy weeds. I’ll bite, a bit earthy nose. Nose mellows after a short period of time revealing more wheat and malt. Brash grassy, earthy, herbal hops attach from the start. Lightly acidic fruit in the middle, perhaps peach and mango. More herbal hops in the finish and into the linger. Shares some e of the characteristic of GL Grassroots. Was never a big fan of American/Wheat ales to begin with. This new twist is not to my liking.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow with a small, foamy, white head. Light wheat and grain nose with honey and floral notes as well. Medium-high carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel. Wheat, lemon, mineral, honey, grass, a little spice, and a touch of soap on the palate. There is a lingering soap and malt finish. Overall a mild and refreshing wheat.

3.2
bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle @beer:30. Pours nearly clear gold with a thin white head. Lightly floral aroma with some honey and a hint of sourness. Medium body, somewhat watery texture with moderate carbonation. The taste is sort of nondescript, but hoppier than expected for the style, which was a nice surprise. Earthy dry finish.

2.9
cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Soft aroma of lemon and grass, not much else. Straw yellow color with a hazy body, 3/4" fuzzy head, and spotty lacing. Balanced feel with a sharp, quick bitter bite. Light bodied with an empty finish. Grainy flavor with plenty of dry wheat and mild, bland hops. A touch of citrus zest and flowers. Kind of blah in the grand scheme of things.

jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Pale gold with good, creamy white head / Musty nose of grain and honey / Light to medium body, creamy with moderate carbonation and good fruit, and good, dry finish / Perfumed, resinous flavors of grain, grass, lemon, and honey / Probably reflecting my general disinterest in wheats, I enjoy this more substantial one, reminiscent of a Dortmunder.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2009
12 oz bottle thanks to KornDogg. Poured pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of honey, light hops, and wheat. Tastes of lemon, grassy hops, honey sweetness and wheat. I actually thought it was pretty refreshing and drinkable. Good lawnmower beer.

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Single bottle purchase from the Orland Park, IL, Binny’s Beverage Depot - It pours a pale yellow body with a fizzy white head that supplies no lace. The aroma is lemony and grassy with some underlying wheat flakes. Spritzy mouthfeel. The grassy bitterness becomes more pronounced in the flavor. The finish is lightly tart with a firm grassy bitterness. Okay Summer drink.

2.1
JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2009
$2 bottle from Abe’s, Bethlehem, in case anyone actually wants this. The lemon drop flavor isn’t too bad and it figures prominently in the aftertaste but the other elements don’t seem to mend well with it. The grassy palate gives it some dryness but the hops and caramel malts seem like the wrong fit with this beer.
