Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. This must have just come out... Pours with no head over a clear golden body. Aroma of wheat and light hops (mostly citrus). Taste is wheaty with citrus and cereal. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. Not that good for Southern Tier. GMCC2181 (1610) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 15, 2009
Bottle picked up at SL. Poured into a pint glass. Light orange/yellow color. Small head that faded quickly. Weak aroma of corn adjucnt. Taste is boring as well. Taste like a lager.... not much wheat going on. Light in texture, easy drinking. Oveall, I wouldnt buy this again but its an ok session beer.

Thanks 17thfloor! Pours cloudy golden yellow with a decent lingering white frothy head. Aroma is very grainy and a decent amount of citric fruit , some lemon peel and wheat with some sugar. Flavor starts with a weak sweet citrus fruitiness and picks up a wheat grain flavor and finishes dry on the tongue. Lemon is the predominant fruit and it doesn’t get much moving elsewhere. medium body and active carbonation. So so beer, very light and crisp. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - APR 29, 2009
Southern Tier does a good job of packing a lot of flavor (or is it "hops"?) into lighter styles of beer. I really like that about them. Here, I am not so sure how successful they were. This was quenching in its light graininess, but didn’t have a whole lot of flavor. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2009
(12oz bottle) Pours a pale yellow body with spare white head. Aroma of wheat, cereal, and toasted grain. Flavor of wheat, subdued hops (earthy, grassy), and cereal with a dry finish.

12oz. Pours a pale yellow color, clear except for the thousand tiny granules of yeast floating around. A nice compact soapy white head. Good lacing. Aroma shows some Kolsch like smells and some Pilsner malt perhaps. Some subtle wheat notes too but overall this is very mild and kinda bland. Flavor is watery, thin and dry. Disappointing.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Archer Liquors singles selection (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy lemony straw, small bright white bubbly head that dissipates to a film clings a bit. Aromas are a bit musty, wheaty stink with lemon notes, light fruity esters, but the stink gets to me. That shouldn’t be a wheat ale. Initial is liht bodied, preaching some mild grainy and cereal qualities, a touch of hop floral and lemon. Grass and lemon, a touch of breadiness and cereal, but a bit bland overall. Lacks body even for the style. Dissappointing largely. A mediocre wheat ale. smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Very mild head, that settles to a single layer of bubbles. Cloudy although less than expected. Yellow gold color.
Reminds me of a cream ale in the smell. Light wheat aroma.
A touch of pepper; some wheat. The aftertaste quickly dies with some sourness. Decent body with a slightly high carbonation. Kinda sits between a bunch of styles--wheat, mild, cream ale; not mastering any. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Clear golden with a fleeting white head. Tart wheat aroma with cabbage/sulfer. Medium body. Light roasted wheaties flavor with a mildly bitter finish. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2009

Many small particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of wheat, sugar, honey, pale malts, water, and artificial sweetener. Light to medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Wheat, water, and artificial sweetener finish is slightly dry.
