12oz bottle purchased at Shaw's in North Hampton. Pours a hazy very light yellow body with a good inch of white-ish head that leaves some decent lacing as it dissipates. Smells mainly fruity, though lightly, with lemon, orange, and pithy notes. Tastes initially sweet with fruity orange, lemon, melon, and pith. Light-bodied with ample effervescent carbonation. Dry finish with little aftertaste. Tasty and super-drinkable. I could see this being a good summer session beer on a hot day.

Bottled on 03/19/12

A: Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow color with almost no head

S: Definite wheat malts, slightly sweet grains, and a hint of lemon

T: Again wheat malts, followed by lightly toasted grains that add a touch of sweetness, followed by a light lemony note. Finishes with a light kick that keeps it interesting

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

O: This beer is very easy to drink and though not complex at all, keeps you coming back because of the finish. Great summer beer, as it's low in abv and light enough to drink a few

On tap at the Corner Pub.

Appearance - Hazy golden color. Generous foamy white head. Good retention. Decent lacing.

Aroma - Not much on the nose. Just some wheat and grass.

Taste - Clean wheat flavor. Some lemony zest and light grassy hops add a touch of bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Clean & crisp. Dry. Soft carbonation.

Overall - It's enjoyable. I'd have it again if I were in the mood for a simple wheat beer.

Very translucent yellow. not really sure why theres about a half ton of floaties floating around in the yellow liquids. Heavy carbonation feeds a white frothy head.

Not really fancy on the nose. Wheat malt, nice touch of corn sweetness.

The taste is watery. Adjunct grains, wheat, a touch of honey sweetness as well. Its not overly complex, but very drinkable. much, much better than SA Summer Ale.

a clear golden yellow pour with a minimal amount of head. barely any lacing. smells bready with a hint of honey. tastes very bready and yeasty.. slight taste of citrus. light bodied with moderate carbonation. extremely refreshing. this is a very generic tasting wheat beer with a slight citrus zest.. very refreshing for hot summer days.

A- Golden yellow, with a few large bubbles. Head retention is decently long lasting with some lacing.
S- Aroma is heavy on the wheat with some lemon and slight plasticy aroma.
T- Lemon up front with a slight tartness. The wheat takes over with a bit of characteristic wheat/bubblegum finish.
M- Light body. Carbonation is crisp, a bit to crisp actually.
O- It's a pretty standard light wheat beer. Enjoyable and easy drinking.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle with a bottled on date of 3/19/12. Brewed and bottled in Baldwinsville, NY???

A - Yellow with large bubbles that form a small head then dissipate quickly. Looks pretty dull after a minute.

S - Wheaty but also a little musty.

T - Some nice wheat and tartness but not a lot of flavor. Smooth and drinkable.

M - Moderate in mouthfeel and carbonation.

D - Refreshing and easy drinking but nothing out of the ordinary.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Buffalo Wild Wings. Served in a pilsner glass.

A: Hazy gold, two-finger white head with lots of visible carbonation.

S: Wheat and pilsner malt, only a mild citrus aroma with some non-descript fruity yeast esters.

T: Follows the nose, with the addition of mild banana yeast esters in the background, along with the citrus and mild spices. Graininess and mild citrus hop on finish.

M: Light body though average for style. Low alcohol presence and lots of carbonation.

O: I don't find anything off-putting about the beer, but there's not much to excite either. They were out of Jai Alai on tap, and this seemed like the next best option.
