Hazy golden with a lasting white ring. Aromas of citrus, some hops, and dog. Flavor is pale wheat and a hint of citrus. Finish is fading, watery, but clean. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Cloudy, green-tinged gold with 1.5 fingers of white head & decent lacing. Very light yeasty aromas and slightly musty. Very round, but light mouth feel. Bread on palate--light on the wheat. Nice summer drinker. chrisv10 (18702) - DENMARK - JUN 2, 2010
Draft. Golden with white head. Flavour is wheat, malt, fruit and slightly bitter. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2010
12 oz bottle from GAManiac. Thanks, Grant! Pours a dulled gold hue, a light haze, a nice moderate creamy white head that laces ok. Small. Aromas are lighter, flaked white wheat, cereal grains, just a touch of lemon, with faint florals. Pretty mellow overall, wheat bread and not much else. Initial is light bodied, mellow lemon and orange fruitiness mix into grainy wheat and cereal grains, bready malts and crackers. More orange in the small citrusy element, wheat bread, cereal malts, grains, touch of sweetness. Light bodied and refreshing, almost too thinned out. A bit mellow. Bland, overall. jsquire (4662) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Clear golden color with a large foamy white head that left lots of sticky lace. Light lemon and grain nose. Easy drinking light beer. Lemon citrus flavors with some lime, light toast, and a subtle bitterness in the finish. Solid sessionable American wheat.

Bottle best before August 2, 2010. The more exciting thing about buying this Tackle Box is that I get some seriously fresh Sweetwater IPA. But, all in all this American styled wheat beer isn’t all that bad for a style I usually don’t like. The typical flavors of wheat and toned down fruity notes are here with very light citrus, but everything is really clean and balanced. It’s a light bodied, mild wheat ale to quench the summer thirst and is serviceable as such. But as with other American-style wheats, this lacks the strong esters or citrusy punch that a good German or Belgian wheat may have. Suttree (6537) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2010
From the Sweetwater "Tackle Box" mix pack. So, this replaces the Hummer? Cloudy yellow, thin loose white head. faint aroma grainy and woodsy. Flavor is also grainy and woodsy, with a faintly hoppy and dry finish. Kinda, i don’t know, unmoving? I liked Hummer better. LtDan (1808) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 16, 2010
12 oz. bottle jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Appearance Pours a cloudy, bright yellow gold with a pillowy white head. The foam leaves behind spotty lace.
Aroma: Bread dough, banana, citrus essence.
Taste: Spicy hops, fruity yeast, banana. Finishes clean and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate fizz.
Overall: Pretty enjoyable for a style I don’t go after. I got this pretty fresh, so the hops are standing out quite nicely.
12oz bottle. Pours yellow gold with slight haze and a thin white head. Nose is very malty with bready wheat malt, light sweetness, and subtle fruitiness. Overall, malty aroma. Flavor is malty and wheaty with light floral hops. Balanced with wheat and spicy delicate hops with moderate sweetness. Finish is somewhat dry with some residual sweetness. Mouthfeel is full bodied (almost chewy for a beer of such modest gravity) with a crisp and refreshing tickle of CO2. Overall, quite refreshing and drinkable. A pleasant warm weather brew.

12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a near clear, pale gold-hued body with a small-sized, white that soon peters out.
Smell: Largely smelling of tart lemon, though by no means is this a particularly pungent aroma. Also some wheat notes and a rather tenuous tone of spice.
Taste: Modest taste of malted wheat with some simple sugary flourishes. Full pinch of freshly-grated lemon zest yields some citrus character and a little bit of tartness. No more than a very, very subtle touch of hop bitterness. Equally subtle hint of spiciness. A crisp finish rife with lemon.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation along the lines of a soda.
Drinkability: Light, refreshing, drinkable -- very on-track for the humble wheat ale style. If those aren’t things you’re interested in in terms of a beer, then you’d best just steer well clear of this one. As for me, it’s a pleasant, summertime brew.
