3 Sheeps seems to be a newer Wisconsin craft brew on the market. Based in Sheboygan, I see they are slowly starting to make their way across the state in various places. There doesn’t seem to be all that much hype about the beer so far, so I am expecting this to fairly average.
It pours a clear, dark yellow color with a foamy, beige head. The scent is fairly basic with mostly malts with slight hints of citrus. The aroma is fairly weak almost to the point of being non-existent. I sure hope this doesn’t translate over into the taste.
Well at least the taste isn’t bad, but it’s not anything fantastic either. The texture is pretty thin and a flavor is also weak. You do get some nice grain flavors mixed with some tropical fruit. Some bready yeast tones are present as well. Gradually the taste does grow on you but I’m not sure if this is even any better than Blue Moon. While it is drinkable, they really could take this one back to the drawing board as well.
It’s always awesome to find a new beer from a Wisconsin brewery that I have yet to have tried. But, it’s not awesome when that beer is just kind of average. 3 Sheeps is new and perhaps they will develop some delicious brews down the road. I’m definitely willing to re-visit their offerings; I just hope they improve on the taste a little. –Chris Lemke of WisconsinBrewReview.com

A - a smidgeon darker than I expect for a wit, with a white foam that forms no lasting impression.
S - aroma is interesting because there are elements of honey, citrus, and peach. Makes me wonder about how the aroma is created. Despite this complexity, I'm not sure I find these aromas all that appealing. There's something about them that is off, like an artificially flavored candy.
T - surpringly little in here that reminds me of wit. It's watery and sweet. The sweetness makes those aroma elements cloying. I am reminded of a brand of honey lemon ginseng tea that I do not particularly like but try periodically to calibrate my taste buds.
M - watery and coming up short in carbonation.
I find this to be like one if those Leinies wheat beers; something seems artificial and cloying and it diminishes the experience.

12oz into a tulip.
A: Pours a clear gold with a small white head.
S: Smells of mild raw wheat, clovey esters, a bit sweet.
T: Taste brings subtle wit esters, light hop bitterness, wheat, watery finish.
M: Light-bodied with light carbonation.
O: Either the yeast strain used here is not very potent, or they didn't give it much time to do its thing...this is much too watery and toned down, closer to a bland American wheat ale than a witbier.

A run-of-the-mill wheat that didn't really knock my socks off. It pours straw yellow with some lacing. Initial taste is pleasant, with an orange peel sweetness that fades gradually to a clean finish. It has a textbook summer beer taste and profile--light, easy drinking for a hot day.
