Pours straw cloudy yellow with minimal head which dissipated immediately. Smells wheaty, slightly yeasty with some addition of citrus. Pretty normal hefe stuff. Taste - really yeasty, slightly bitter, some citrusy aftertaste. It feels a little flat to me, I am allmost to blame the growler for it. To summarize - decent hefe, but nothing special. Wouldn't bring the growler of this back again.

On draught at the brewpub, served in a shaker pint, Wheat Whale Ale is a very lightly hazed gold with a whitish head that leaves scattered, foamy lace.

Smell is huge rotten eggs, holy sulfur batman!

Taste is better, the first sip had some of the orange juice from the silly garnish. Further exploration revealed no esters, so this not a hefe, just an american pale wheat ale, simple and bland, a touch sweet, but clean.

Mouthfeel is dryish, medium body.

Drinkability is pretty good, a bland little inoffensive beer with a enough sweetness to warrant another sip, without overbearing.

I had this brew over lunch. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a yellow/brown color and is cloudy. Minimal head and no lacing.

The smell is sweet, citrus fruit and malty.

The taste is good. A nice malty backbone and a citrus finish.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and clean.

This is a very drinkabkle beer. Not a great hefe however. It reminds me of the Henry Wienhard Hefeweizen.
