Very refreshing. I always enjoy this beer on a hot day or around a fire in the evening.

Excited to try this one. Especially since if I like it, Wal-Mart has 12 packs for $10. If this is a good wheat beer, it will be a home run because of the price and no one will have an excuse to buy "cheap" beer again.

Serving style : 12 oz glass bottle, poured for appearance.

Appearance (4) : Beautiful pale-gold to mango colored appearance. Opaque as can be expected for an unfiltered wheat beer. Generous head that laces the glass and is quite impressive. I was starting to lose confidence in appearances of my beers lately and this was a nice change.

Smell (3.5) : Pleasant clean floral bouquet with wheat and sweet yams. Touch of cooked carrot, a calming yeast. Just a beautiful smell overall. Impressed.

Taste (3.5) : Out of the bottle - A bit one-dimensional. Not bad flavoring but it's simply just wheat. Notes of rye and some potato. Some buttered cracker bitterness at the end that is slightly off-putting and doesn't really belong in this beer.

Out of the glass - a totally different story. Smooth, creamy, full. Flavors all come together with a pleasant citrus presence. I don't know just what the heck is going on here, or why, but there is a difference, and it's a BIG one. If you're gonna drink it, pour it. POUR IT I SAY!!! A 2.5 for the bottle, an outstanding 4 in a glass. I'll mediate it with a 3.5.

Mouthfeel (3) : Out of the bottle - Incredibly thin. Like water. No body. Disappears immediately as it goes down the hatch. A "2".

In the glass? Another story completely! Why???? I'm not gonna knock it because it's so good. Creamy and full bodied. Perfect amount of carbonation and wash. Another "4" ouf of 5. Median score, a "3".


Overall (3.71) : If you pour it into a glass, you WILL NOT be sorry. Drink it from the bottle and you'll drain it for its overwhelming mediocrity. Perhaps it's best to understand what the bottle actually says that the yeast rests on the bottom, and I suppose once you pour it you get that "aged" taste and it all comes to life.

Take my advice and serve this one in a chilled glass.
