Sweaty betty Blonde. This beer didn't look like a wheat beer, it was very clear and had an odd acidic taste. Maybe this beer was handled poorly before I tasted it, but maybe not.

A This beer was poured by the bar keep and was super clear, so much so that it looked like an American pils. It had a big head that went away almost immediately.

S sweet estery smell.

T There is a little acidic green apple taste that has a puckering effect. It is unique and unlike other wheat beers.

M Thin a little malty sweet. Low carbonation.

O This is not my style. I like wheat beers, but prefer the banana flavors over the apple, it's a personal thing I know. It is worth a try, but I'm glad I don't have a six pack.

Bottle into a chalice

date says best before july 4th.

a. A light lemony yellow bottom and a musty yellow kind of golden color top. poured gently with a bit of head that lingers.

s. You smell a bit of wheat malts and a tad bit of a banana.

t. a bit of wheat malts tamed by a tiny bit of a lemon flavor and a hint of banana in it. It taste like a pale lager mix with a wheat beer.

M. Its the best bit. Its really kind of yeasty creamy, and smooth. Pretty refreshing but i guess thats the only redeeming quality.

O. It is a refreshing beer, but if you are looking for something with a little flavor or complexity, you've been barking up the wrong tree.

This brew pours a cloudy yellow color and has a marginal whitish head. The nose has some quiet citrus tones and wheaty malts. The taste is mostly wheat malts with again subtle fruit. The body is really light for the style and over carbonated. Needs lots of glass swirling to help go down smooth.

12oz bottle poured into a 12oz tumbler.

I'm sweatin' up a storm after cooking up some Old Rasputin beef stew, so I figured this would be appropriate.

Pours a very crisp light golden color with a nice creamy one finger white head that looks awesome, nice light streams of bubbles up the side. Nose is not so nice, it's got a bit of a chemical note to it, also some very faint hops.

Very fruity, very light, a bit of that clearning solution from the nose comes through as well. It's a good intro to craft beer, nothing to write home about. Theres a bit of a lemon that I'm starting to notice as well. Mouthfeel is nice and big with lots of carbonation.

It's a good hot day drinker but I wouldn't get it again.

A: hazy golden color with a 1 finger width quickly dissolving head.
S: has a deep wheat and yeast smell with sweat apricot sliding in.
T: little to much taste coming from the yeast making it a little over powering and hides the rest of the beer's character.
M/D: medium bodied and feels slightly harsh in the mouth. Drinkability is ok but not something I like to continue drinking.
