Light yellow body with a beaten egg white head. Slight haze. Okay retention. Tight lacing. 3.5
Wheaty malts with light sweetness. Lemon twist and light hop presence. Some herbal/mint notes. 3.5
Grains are a little coarser in the taste. Banana notes and the same lemon zing, a little less juicy, pairing with very muted notes of coriander spice. Could use more of a hop presence. Refreshing flavor. No complexities needed. 4.0
Crispy carb makes for a great refreshment. Thin body, but just milky enough. 4.0
Nice summer brew from Boulder. Simple and quenching. 4.0

A- Pours a slightly hazy straw with a finger of bubbly white head that dissipates and leaves some light lacing
S- Floral yeast and some light citrus, banana
T- Floral notes and yeast at the beginning, quickly changes to a nice wheat breadiness and some very light hop, banana tones to finish
M- Light carbonation and body, smooth, fits the style
O- Has some good qualities for a wheat: light, floral, refreshing. Although not a style I usually go for, this one is good

A - Kinda murky goldish-yellow, with a quickly dissipating thin head. Very little lacing to speak of, but the color is pretty nice.
S - Oddly, smells alot like bananas. Banana Nut Bread to be exact, with some slight citrus overtones. Very interesting to say the least.
T - Not bad for a wheat ale. Has a hint of banana, with some rich wheatiness and a little citrus on the finish. Has a very pleasant banana nut bread aftertaste.
M - Some carbonation, but overall it has a fairly pleasant feel to it. Not too light, not too heavy, right where it should be.
O - Not bad for a wheat ale, as you may know already I haven't had many, but this one isn't bad for what it is. A pleasant little beer with a good unique character. Works for me!

Pours a light straw yellow with not much head to speak of. The taste has a nice wheat character with hints of banana throughout it. It also has a nice dry taste that makes it a great beer for a hot sunny day. Carbonation is fizzy but works well as a whole. Not my favorite style but its a decent beer for sure.

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 one pours a cloudy golden blonde with a very thick frothy head that settles very slowly leaving a luxurious lacing down the sides of the glass.
The nose if very pleasant like fresh bread, lemon and citrus notes with a very floral blend of flowers and hops. The nose is sweet.
The taste is very satisfying with a hint of a Saison farmhouse ale from Belgium in the Flemish region. The taste is very satisfying with subtle hops and lemony flavors that match the nose. The beer is not dry with a leaning towards fruity, but not too sweet. This one is very satisfying and nicely balanced. The hops make their presence known as you finish your swallow with the sweet giving way to a very pleasant bitter. This is a very nicely balanced beer and I really like it.
The mouthfeel is satisfying, though a tad bit watery for how good this beer taste. But it is not detracting from me enjoying it at all.
Overall this one is an excellent beer and I would love to buy it again.

Pours a hazy honey gold, white lacing.
Smells of citrus, coriander and grassy malts.
Tastes the same, citrus, fresh grassy malts, and coriander. A bit of mild bitterness, but very subtle.
Light body with soft carbonation.
A pretty decent wheat ale, good flavor character and otherwise solid in everything you would expect from a wheat brew, would have again.
