Tried this one at Scotty's Brewhouse to go with my bison burger.

A - Nice straw gold color with bright white head.

S - Grassy with hints of lemon and grains.

T - Lemon flavor shines through with a grassy character. Light wheat flavor but very effervescent and drinkable. Crisp refreshing finish but with some lemony after taste.

M - Light and crisp mouth-feel. The high carbonation and light body make this brew very thirst quenching.

Overall, this is a fine brew for a hot summer day. Not my favorite People's brew but worth a try. Good compliment to greasy fries.

Enjoyed at the fine Tin Fish restaurant in Newburgh, IN. In a can, so no description of visual attributes nor lacing.

Nose subtle, touch of zingy citrus and wheat malt. Not bad.

Taste subtle. Lemongrass notes are prominent. Kinda sour and citrus bitter, edged down by the malty base. An easy to drink brew, not great but surprisingly refreshing and unusual.

Nice wheat ale. Cloudy golden appearance with a light, thin head. Smell initially comes off a bit citrus and sweet. I initially remembered the smell of an early 80's Miller High Life. The taste was a bit flat with a tangy aftertaste. I am fairly new to craft wheat beers, but this is how it comes across to me. Overall it is a good beer, but I would probably take another selection.

A: It poured a semi cloudy straw yellow with a nice white head.
S: It had the typical wheat smell to it. Not quite barnyard but still less sweet than all barley beer. No significant banana or clove esters which was nice because it fits the style for an American Wheat.
T: Nice wheat flavor, semi sweet, very light relative to other beers offered
M: Nice carbonation, full but not overbearing for a summer beer
O: This is a nice wheat beer. It's not the best, the brewers knew what they were doing when they made this one. I would enjoy this on a hot summer evening in Indiana.

D-do you people not know what an American Pale Wheat is? The style is malleable, and they usually don't taste like hefes. Blue Moon is an APWA; so is Gumballhead. The wheat is like a blank canvas and brewers are allowed to do with it what they please.

That having been said, Farmer's Daughter is far from a perfect Pale Wheat. But it's nothing close to an egregious departure from the style. It pours cloudy yellow with a decent head. It smells much more bitter than an average example of the style, and the bitterness seems to come from the yeast, instead of from any hops. Unexpected, but not at all offputting.

The flavor is a little unbalanced. There's a hint of wheatmalt spice up front, then some not-so-great medicinal nodes, then ending on a solid melange of wheat spice, mild citrus, and bitter, chewy yeast.

Had on draft...

A- This beer came to me a light hazed golden straw color. Half finger white head shows poor retention. Light streaks of lace on the sides of the glass with each sip.

S- Not a wheat beer. Not even close. There is a hint of wheat in the front that quickly gets overtaken by sassafras to the max. This scent is overpowering but hints of bandaid come and go till the end of the scent itself. Alcohol is noticable as well in the ending itself. The malt base (which isn't wheaty at all) is the same for the rest of their beers....not good but not bad...almost lending off a lacto infection aroma to it.

T- Light wheat upfront just like the aroma. This is where it just goes downhill sadly. There is a hint of spice in the front that seems like it would go good with the wheat but never quite gets there before that mother fuckin sassafras like flavor dominated everything around it. The middle had the lacto malt base shine for a split second before dirty bandaid and sassafras took away any redeeming flavors. The alcohol on this beer was noticable but not offputting in the ending...it kind of killed the off flavors in the beer.

M- Medium light mouthfeel. Carbonation was lively for this beer. Two flavors left on the palate and long into the aftertaste which were sassafras and bandaid. Alcohol did show in the aftertaste as well. Flavors were far from being balanced let alone being balanced to the style. Off flavors? Well do you have the time for me to really go into great detail about it? I didn't think so. Medium alcohol drying on the palate from each sip.

O- They should really go back to the drawing board with this beer. Well either that or else make a different wheat beer because this is not one at all.
