2000 and 2010 bronze medal winner. Pours a clear super pale yellow without much of a head on it at all. Smells of grainy malts and not much else. The taste has some light citrus zest that finishes with some wheat and cereal malts with a spicy hop zing. Creamy mouthfeel. This is an okay APWA. Pretty light in its profile but what is there is pretty good. Decent.

A - Poured out a very clear, golden-yellow color with a small, white, bubbly head of foam. Okay retention but not much lacing.

S - It smelled of lemon and other citrus fruits with a crisp wheat aroma.

T - Wheat, yeast, lemon and a touch of orange dominate this wheat brew. There is a subtle grain flavor, too.

M - It was crisp and sharp. A light bodied ale with a fairly dry finish.

D - This is an okay wheat ale. It was solid but not spectacular. I'm a little surprised it won a GABF medal.

On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a very lift straw color with minimal head and no much lacig. Nose brngs grain tannins and hints of diacetyl. Taste brings a bunch of buttered popcorn and hints of dry grain. Feel is light with a good amount of carbonation. Drinkability is quite poor.

Crystal clear dark straw hue. Thin tight head leaves wispy lace. Grainy, tart wheat w/ hints of lemony Tettanger hops in aroma. Bready sweetness upfront in flavor leads into pseudosweet dextrins. Malt sweetness is offset by pronounced hop bitterness that's above the norm. Muted herbal hop flavor. Well attenuated with a light body. Crisp, but not thin in mouthfeel. Hint of clove emerges late. Finishes dry, bready and abrupt. Quaffable, with token wheat character. A few notches above insipid. GABF winner 2002.

A clear golden colored ale with a quick head. The hoppy German aroma introduces an initial bitter bite in the flavor with a sharp malt sweet linger and an aggressively bitter finish. Closer in character to a pilsner lager than any wheat ale I have tasted.
