A - Semi-transparent yellow-orange sunburst with adequate carbonation. Nice full snow white head with moderate lacing. Very pretty.

S - Lemon Grass and other citrus notes are apparent. Nice smell; not too weak and not too strong.

T - Wow. This is a great tasting pale wheat ale. This beer is not overpowering nor weak; it has more than enough character to be remembered fondly. Truthfully, this is not a complex beer- its simple and satisfing. Lemon grass stands at the forefront, blended with a hint of wheat. Amazing.

M - Clean, crisp, satisfing.

D - Extraordinary. I could drink more than several.

All in all, though there are a few great pale wheat brews, this brew defines the pale wheat genre for me. Personally, without a doubt, I think that this beer is an A beer.

The Jack Whacker wheat is a nice beer. The beer poured a pale yellow with thin white head that is not lacing. The smell and the taste had hints of lemon citrus. The mouthfeel was light and crisp with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent wheat....maybe a touch too fruity for me....but not bad. Great on warmer days!
