3.6/5  rDev +4.7%

A: Lemon cream yellow with a sudsy, thick, and foamy head; decent retention and decent lacing

S: Grainy and grassy with lemon citrus and even a touch of banana and spice; this smells mostly like an American wheat but there's a touch of a German hefeweizen in there as well

T: Lemon zest up front followed by grassy grains and just a touch of banana and cloves; this is a simple yet refreshing and tasty beer--perfect for mowing the lawn, which is exactly how it came in handy just now

F: Medium body and fairly sticky which works okay

O: This is a nice little beer and like I said perfect for what it is: an easy drinking and refreshing summer beer; I think Boulder did a nice job with this one and when I want something like this again, I will return

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.
