Another can courtesy of Trent. Thanks you!

Cool! It has a ring tab that pulls the entire top of the can off. A first for me!

It pours a hazy yellow orange with a 3 finger head of foam.(pulled straight from the fridge)

It has a spicy nose to it. Loads of lemon grass and citrus, thinking coriander, pepper. Yeasty, wheaty, that's a heck of a good smell.

The taste follows the nose and does not disappoint. Other than what I mentioned above, I'm quite impressed with the body, mouthfeel, and drinkability. The fact that it is only 4.2% abv is icing on the cake.

This is delicious.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
