I had this on-tap at Wedges in Janesville, Wisconsin in Early 2012. It was a 12oz glass for $3.

This fan favorite from Wisconsin pours a golden amber color with a pillowy white head. Has a very grassy, grainy scent. Taste is smooth and mellow as you take in the wheat flavors. Taste is clean and refreshing. Go anywhere in southern Wisconsin and I’m sure you’ll be able to find it.

Pours out crystal clear with a yellow tint. 1/2 finger of white small suds and slight lacing.
Smell is lemony and creamy with some yeast coming through. Slight hop and creamy malts are the star here.
Taste is sweet at first then a tinge of bitterness. There is wheat and grass with a creamy texture. Almost too sweet.
Mouthfeel is a bit sticky but this one finishes very well.
Overall this is pretty darn good. Just not what I would like in a creme ale.
