3.04/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured into a weizen glass.

4.5 A: Moderately hazed yellow brown color. Two fingers of pillowy white head. Retention is very good and a thick ring of lacing is left.

3.0 S: The first thing I notice is a musty breadiness, kind of like how old grain smells. Then there's a sweet component that seems like it wants to be an ester, but I don't think it is. The best part of the nose is that the wheat comes through really well. I guess it's due to the yeast not being a huge part of the brew. It's not bad, but falls solidly at average.

2.75 T: Taste is like the nose, but somehow worse. Wheat, grainy mustiness, not much of anything from the yeast.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth enough.

3.0 D: Mediocre brew. Only worth one try, and just to realize it isn't worth another purchase.

3.09/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - bright yellow with a short, thick cap of soft, dense white head that has decent retention; tons of carbonation bubbles rising to the top

S - husk, lemon, maybe some faint citrus

T - lemon, some citrus, mild bitterness in the finish

M - very crisp, light bodied, a bit overcarbonated

This is a light, refreshing beer but it doesn't have a flavor that keeps me interested very long. This would be a great beer if you're looking for something to pack away without thinking too much.

Pours a hazy yellow that had a thick white head with decent lacing around the glass. A bit heavy on the carbonation. Smells of wheat and grassy malt but on the weak side to other wheat beers I tried. Tasted like the aroma but nothing that great. Wasn't bad but nothing to get excited about.

2.2/5  rDev -25.2%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: misty yellow-gold body with a half finger white head that leaves some lacing behind. No wheat sediment – interesting?

Aroma: light lemon citrus soda; dainty wheat;

Flavors: citrus zip, hint of dusty wheat, sour dough bread, watery around the edge

Mouthfeel: citrus up front and then some light wheat, fine fizzy carbonation,

To the Point: not the best wheat beer around but, it should hit the spot on a hot summer day if there was nothing else around. A sub pair wheat beer.

Tap Room No. 21 Brewery Wheat Beer
World Brews
Style: American Pale Wheat Ale
ABV: 4.50 %

Pours a cloudy yellowish color. Soapy white head forms and leaves lace on the glass. Aroma of wheat, clove, banana bread and a whiff of hop. In the flavor, bready wheat notes with a hint of clove and pepper. Pretty standard fare for a wheat, mild lemony hop, clove and muted banana notes. Soft bitterness makes for a well balanced brew. Medium bodied brew with ample carbonation but comes off watery. Overall, a decent wheat that is an average example of the style.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a completely clear golden color. I prefer a cloudy, unfiltered wheat. A good amount of carbonation creates a thick white head.
Smell is of pure wheat. Not any hints of anything else, a little bit of hops.
Taste is fairly good. A good wheat taste, with the smallest hint of clove. but that is where it ends.
Mouthfeel is good. Nice thickness and goes down easy.
Drinkability is good. Not a lot of complex tastes in this, but definitely a pounder if that is your choice.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a hazy yellow color with an inch thick head that dissipates after about a minute. Very nice lacing.

Smell - Pale malts, citrus, lemon, and wheat.

Taste - Some strong pale malts, citrus, lemon, wheat, and a slightly bitter aftertaste. All-around very sweet in flavor.

Mouthfeel - Has a thick creaminess body from foaming. High carbonation.

Overall - It's pretty good, just a very bitter wheat ale. The high carbonation makes me burp up a lot of foam but the flavor is good.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Poured out a cloudy, golden yellow color with a one-finger, white head of bubbly foam. The head was short lived and left minimal lacing.

S - It smelled of lemon and cracked wheat. Pretty average.

T - Nice sweet flavor with a touch of sweetness. Some lemon and yeasty spiciness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty average wheat beer. Affordable and easy drinking.

2.53/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a generic glass in low altitude Orange, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are low.

A: Pours a three finger head of slight cream, decent thickness, and pretty good retention. Colour is a transparent yellow.

Sm: Heavy malt, light nuts, and dirty barley. A mild strength aroma.

T: Clean barley with some light nuts and overburdened malt. Pleasant lemon esters are present as well. Not horribly complex, but alright. Built decently.

Mf: Smooth and wet, suiting the flavour generally. Too thick, though.

Dr: Drinkable but low quality and at a high price. Not worth trying. It's very generic and boring.

3.03/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look - golden color, clear with good carbonation and two finger's worth of mostly white-colored foam that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Smell - as far as wheat beers, the wheat seems a little light. Maybe somewhat of a lemon smell.

Taste and Mouthfeel - the taste is somewhat light on the wheat taste as well. A bit metallic in the finish and aftertaste. The texture is a little light and on the watery side.

Overall - not much of a wheat beer. Sure, it has the "wheaty" taste, but it's lacking a little bit in the character of a wheat beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance isn't bad a deep clouded yellow golden ale with a bright white head, forms thick with fine speckled lacing. Pale malts a bit of bready yeast mild sharp wheat lacking all signs of wheat beer esters. Flavor wise it isn't bad really, a clean sharp wheat presence mild spiy rye addition going on. Not very impressive I'd rather drink a nice German style hefeweizen. Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied not the worst example of the style just boring, carbonation is moderate nothing too much. Overall a beer that is sold to Kroger and other large food retailers and contracted out to different breweries by World Beers of Novato, CA a beer marketer who is doesn't produce. These brews never seem to sell and are always marked down why do they continue to take up a large area of the micro section. These particular beers are produced in Rochester, NY.
