Best by date of May 25th, 2012; Sampled April 2012
A steady pour into my small wine goblet produces an initially one-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head that subsides fairly quickly. The beer is a lightly hazed, pale gold color that shows more of the same, with a sheen, when held up to the light. The aroma smells a bit grassy and herbal up front, but has a sweet malt / grain character to it in the middle that is almost honey like in a beer sort of manner. Perhaps a touch of apple like fruitiness, but really the touch of fruit is more non-descript than anything specific.
Sweet tasting with a hint of bitterness. The finish is quite smooth due to the lack of hop character and has a sort of sweet, white bread crumb like flavor to it. Flavor of apple or perhaps melon add to the sweet perception in what might have been a dry beer if it had more balancing hoppiness (but that was clearly what was not the intent here). Quite light bodied, though I wouldn’t call it watery at all, this is accentuated by a touch of lemon zest citrus character that subtly infuses the flavor. The malt provides a hint of an astringent, or grainy bite to the finish.
A pretty standard, clean, American Wheat beer. Suits in a pinch, or ice cold on a hot summer’s day, but mostly something that I don’t found overly interesting.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "Best By" date 11-2-14.
APPEARANCE: pours a cloudy, pale yellow, bits of sediment floating about, 1 finger head that quickly dissipated until just a ring of bubbles remained around glass, no lacing, medium carbonation.
SMELL: floral, citrus, yeast and bread.
TASTE: initially sweet, subtle lemon citrus, very mild hop profile, bread.
PALATE: medium body, medium carbonation.
OVERALL: this is an excellent wheat beer, I frequently order this beer with food, this style has broad appeal so you could serve to large number of guests and would be a "safe" choice. This is an excellent brewer and I can't wait to try more beers from them.
