Cloudy gold, just a finger of dying white head on mine.

A previous description of old pretzels is apt for the nose - like those that may have been at the bar for a few weeks.

Led by a predominant yeasty sourness, do we really need to go further? The wheat is there, but comes through dry, like have to separate the grain from the chaff with your tongue - this isn't fun.

The taste being as it is, the carbonation doesn't matter much, though it overly pops the tongue.

Parched in the desert? This is ok. Otherwise? Look elsewhere. (537 characters)

My coworker is signed to a beer of the month club and was kind enough to share this with me.
This pour hazy yellow with a rock white head.

There is a crispy kind of sharpness with soft wheat and citrus hops aroma at first in the with moderat sulfar note that diminishes after a couple of minutes.

Moderate wheat flavor with a moderate hop bitterness both lasting into the crisp finish. There is a medium-low citrus hops flavor in there as well

This has a medium light body with a medium-high level of carbonation.

This is an easy to drink refreshing beer. It's too bad the nose is off for the first couple of minutes but the flavor is just fine. (653 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pale, cloudy yellow hue with a huge frothy head; lacing is good

S: Grainy with a big dose of citrus; lemon rind, lemon, pepper, coriander, very grassy and grainy--this smells pretty good though maybe a touch one dimensional

T: Simple but tasty; quite grainy; lots of the wheat along with grass but also lots of lemon and lemon rind--really pretty refreshing

F: Well carbonated; medium body; a touch thin on the back end

O: This is a summer session beer; really drinkable; it's simple and I"m not always a huge fan of the style but this is pretty good nonetheless (577 characters)

Golden straw colored body hosts a quick fading off white head that stands at a half inch. Nose has notes of honey comb, lemon pulp and fresh cut clean straw. This beer hits the tongue with a bang of lemon zest and big bold wheat. This is a clean and refreshing wheat beer while also being nicely flavorful. It carries a simple level of complexity that makes it a well rounded and overall exceptional basic wheat beer. (421 characters)

Entry No. 2 of Craft Beer Expo. I was pleasantly surprised by this offering. Notes are from my rating scale and manual I carried with me while I was there. There's not much to this description as I was chatting it up with some girls at the tasting table. What I've jotted is all I got.

Serving style : 6 oz taster glass

Appearance (3.75) : Hazy orange glow. Around 70% opacity.

Aroma (3.5) : Strong wheat and orange fruit. Bouquet, while simple, is medium to strong.

Flavor (4) : Pleasantly hoppy, lots of malt too. Barley, orange rind, pine, and a lightly woody character.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : Light bodied, creamy, wet, ending semi-dry.

Overall (3.81) : "Good wheat character with a hop bite, refreshing and sessionable." Would Buy - Yes; Would Try Again - Yes. (767 characters)
