Notes from 3/13. 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. This 'American Wheat Ale with Citrus' comes across as a Pale Ale in a way. Pours a medium straw with a thin cap, quite clear for a wheat ale and showing just a hint of haze.

Aroma throws a funky hop pitch at you initially but fortunately this settles out quickly with a bit of exposure. Offers a bit of sour lemony wheat after some warming. Not all bad but not really much going on. Aroma seems like a secondary concern here.

Taste is very light with a touch of malt but no discernible wheat component. Bit of lemon on the finish. Feel is light yet smooth and not watery. Again, no definitive wheat texture to be found. Given the color/haze, smell and taste I would assume this wheat ale has no more than 10 or 20 percent wheat.

Overall just not a whole lot to love here. Similar to the blueberry wheat without the blueberry of course, perhaps the same base beer, and dare I say lacking something as a result. Not bad by any means, just lacking enough character to desire another.

I had no idea this was wheat type ale. Just saw it was a local brewery so figured I would try it. I don't really like any wheat beers although some of the Belgian ones are ok. I am mainly a lager drinker. That's just what my taste buds prefer.

I was quite surprised when I drank it. It had a very subtle wheat taste. It went down smooth and I could easily take down a six pack of it. The aroma had a slight malty smell but not overpowering and it was a slightly hazy golden amber color. A light crisp taste that stayed the whole way down. No harsh or bitter aftertaste.

A - pale yellow, very light straw color. Minimal head that quickly dissipated. Good carbonation coming up. Like a bud light in color really.

S - mainly wheat and citrus. The citrus is refreshing and zesty. Smells very much like a hefeweizen.

T - kind of flat on the palate. Not much here. The aftertaste has a bit of the citrus. Really mainly flat and non-descript. Wheat is trying to come out but is hidden.

M - this is its standout to me. Very smooth and mellow on te palate. Right amount of carbonation. Aftertaste sits nicely, but very mellow.

O - my first by Cold Storage. Was not impressed. It is drinkable for the summer, however. But if its flavor you're after, not the one for you.
