Reviewed from a recent trip to the Sterling Sweetwater. The body was a hazy yellow as you would expect from a wheat beer with a slight layer of white foam covering it. Aroma was a bit yeasty with bananas and a bit of caramel malt. The flavor starts of a bit doughy with a touch of lemon to it before a bit of caramel sweetness is had. A fairly clean crisp taste that ends with a bit of a sweet wheaty after taste. Mouthfeel was medium to light with pretty good drinkability.

This is identified as "retired - no longer brewed", but I just had this the other day.

Meh. I've had better.

This is described as "an unfiltered, amber wheat beer...light body with wheat, yeast & caramel flavors". It's definitely unfiltered. It pours a cloudy orangy-yellowish color with a sort of off-color head. Pour it into a glass, and it's a beautiful sight. It doesn't have much of a smell though; barely noticeable. And the taste isn't that spectacular. With so many options available I can't see myself getting this ever again.

On draft. Called a "session wheat IPA" by the brewery

Hazy golden color, white head, decent head retention. Earthy hops dominate the aroma. Taste has a touch of wheat, fairly hoppy. Thin body.
