Draught @ Brewpub: Served with a lemon wedge. This one poured a cloudy, golden color. There was a small white head on it that left some lacing. Lighter, but nice aroma. Mainly wheat and citrus notes. This had a very smooth and mellow flavor to it. Wheat and citrus flavors. Maybe a hint of spices. Nice and drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

Had on tap at the brewpub just moments ago. The beer had a great pale golden appearance with some solid lacing and a thin head. The lemon on it was a plus both appearance-wise and aroma-wise. Great wheaty smells wrapped in citrus flavors found both in the beer and the lemon. Taste was pretty darn good with a sour-sweet balance and not too overpowering lemon taste. Mouthfeel helped this to be crisp and refreshing while eating steak. Overall, pretty good.

On tap at the brewpub. not my type of wheat, sour. Yellow with lace. Some creaminess and lemon. ABove average carbonation, which made it drinkable. Me mate liked it. Not my favorite of their line, or particularly worthy of the style. Must everyone in this country make a wheat?

Growler filled by a friend at the brewpub. Thanks for the opportunity, E.

First imperial pint pours with a 1/2" white head, over the dark straw brew. Streams of small bubbles try to preserve the head, but lose the battle, leaving a thin layer of bubbles. Aroma is lightly of wheat, a bit understated here. Taste is also dominated by the wheat, with tinge of something else, maybe fleeting cloves. Mouthfeel is amazingly soft over the tongue, and drinkability is superb as well. Tremendously approachable brew, possibly a nice crossover brew, as well as a thirst-quencher.

Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

This American wheat ale poured a clear, golden color with white foam that settled and clung to the inside of the glass in a few places. The smell was of wheat malt. The taste was mild biscuity malt with a light tartness (a bit of citrus) and a touch of hop bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel was smooth and crisp and dry with medium-light body and good carbonation. The wheat malt left a light lingering aftertaste. This was a very nice and refreshing wheat ale, made with 55% wheat malt and 45% Vienna malt. Definitely not a hefeweizen, though it was served with a slice of lemon.
