Menu said the ABV on this beer is 4.5%, and that it is unfiltered. The original poster calls this beer a witbeer, the menu said American Wheat (maybe that was a typo??), although this beer has the clover aroma/flavor you would expect in a Heffeweizen. Very cloudy as expected for a wheat. Finishes crisp.

I liked this beer, although it does not have the characteristics of an American Wheat.

Very lackluster wheat beer. Pale yellow color, very hazy as one would expect from a wheat, but unforunately that is the best that can be said of it. The flavor was quite unremarkable, actually very bland. No hints of the citrus flavors one would expect in a wheat beer. Aroma was somewhat earthy, maybe grassy would be a better description. All told, one of the worst wheat beers I have had.

Pours a nice cloudy straw colow, with just a tiny bit of head and little lacing. It has a nice clean and crisp scent, a little citrus aroma with nice wheat overtones. It tastes good, very clean with a nice sweet taste and hints of orange. Think along the lines of a Blue Moon. It goes down very smoothly, too.

Well after a atone ruination ipa I needed something more light. looks pretty good, has a very cloudly orange juice type color to it with no head at all. Aroma is very citrusy, also has a nice yeast body to it. Taste is good, has a clean easy drinking taste and is very refreshing. Mouthfeel is ok, pretty light on the tongue but that is expected. Drinkability is good too, give it a shot

This brew pours a small head of large white bubbles and a transparent light yellow orange body. It was flat, lacked character and had a very poor taste. This was the worst brew I tasted at the Brew-Ha-Ha in Indianapolis.

From a sampler: This beer pours a hazy dark yellow color with a medium thick and foamy white head. The aroma is somewhat wheaty with a touch of hops. No real lacing to speak of. Kind of thin body, with a smooth and mild character. It's really not all that wheaty and the finish was on the bland side. Not one of their better attempts.
