I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binbny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. 12oz. long necked brown bottle with no freshness date, and yes, the Jarrett Payton the beer is named after is the son of "sweetness" - Walter Payton.

The beer poured a slightly hazed light gold color and the initial head is enormous, so be careful with the pour. Half the glass was filled with white bubbly foam that sort of looked like dish soap. The head dissapates quickly and lacing is minimal.

Citrusy and yeasty smell with a touch of wheat.

Mild wheat flavor with a hefty dose of lemony citrus along with a slight yeast twang. Hop bitterness is low. Thought it might be sweet being named after the son of "sweetness", but it's not. Clean, dry finish.

Light bodied with slightly higher than average carbonation.

It's OK, but nothing memorable or exciting.

3.33/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Basically looks like a pale version of Blue Moon. Pale orange with no foam or lacing.

Smell: Very musky malt. Maybe this bottle sat around for a while?

Taste/Mouthfeel: Mostly coriander. Not a whole lot of citrus as expected, but the coriander is refreshing. Creamy initially, but flat in the finish.

Overall Drinkability: An ok beer. Not as good as Pegasus or McCaffrey's.

Served in a Local Option glass.

The inclusion of the word "Swheatness" on the side label just plain hurts my head... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger or so of white foam. The nose comprises wheat, light lemon zest, light orange peel, and a touch of what may or may not be coriander. The taste surprises with a blast of vague citrus rind and peel, finishing in a slightly sharp twang of appropriate bitterness. The wheat in the background is sorta o'erpowered, shoved to the side, forced into the wake of the not-entirely-pleasant citrus. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally smooth-ish feel. Overall, a sorta ho-hum li'l brew, nothing to write home about unless your day was more boring and tedious than usual.

A – Has a straw coloration to it with a light foam on top

S – Has a slightly sweet hop aroma that has hints of citrus

T – Very refreshing beer. Light pilsner taste from a wheat ale

M – Very clean mouthfeel. No real aftertaste that distracts from the beer

O – I really like this beer. It’s definitely something I would drink after mowing the lawn. Very smooth and refreshing

Serving Type: On-tap
