3.53/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Started to pour it vigorously, but then it kinda got out of hand. Has a very large bubbly, carbonated head, but no lacing on the glass after it disappears. Never really had many wheat beers, so this is a new experience for me.

S - Smells very bready, like a buttery sesame-y kind of bread. Not very stong, but definitely there. Almost smells sugary in a sense. Not a bad smell by any means overall.

T - The first thing I notice is an almost stinging citrus blast. Like a beered up lemonade. Very carbonated, sort of frothy. Has an aftertaste of orange, lemon, yeast, and a little bit of hoppyness. Aftertaste is like a sweet honey-like sugaryness. Honey nut bread comes to mind, with a hint of nectar and citrus. Fairly tasty, but I've never been one to reach for a wheat beer, when given the choice of several more favorable styles.

M - Very light, like one of those lemon-lime sodas. Bubbly and very carbonated, it really doesn't feel like a beer at all! Does leave some foam behind in the mouth after it's gone, but don't most beers of this style? I dunno man...

O - Not bad, not bad. Not my favorite style, but okay for what it is. Seems like it would make a good session beer, but the heavy wheat influence makes it very filling, which makes for a bad session beer.

3.93/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a golden color with a good two finger head that dissipates very quickly. Lots of bubbles coming up to the service and it is very clear.

S- A very fruity aroma. It is difficult to tell what fruit is the most prevalent, but it seems to be a tie between banana, apple, and pear. It is pleasantly yeasty and also has just a hint of spice to it.

T- The taste is very representative of the head. Big fruitiness and a pleasant yeasty flavor. It is on the sweet side but this is balanced by a slight bitterness that seems to be brought from the wheat. Hops are completely undetectable. Very refreshing.

M- Tingling carbonation and a refreshing crispness. On the thinner side but it goes down very easy. Nothing to complain about.

O- Refreshing, crisp, and bursting with fruit. What more could you ask for on a spring or summer day?

3.1/5  rDev -17.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Golden color with white head, some bubbles.

S: Very intense wheat smell even from 12 inches away from my nose, slightly inundating.

T: No distinct flavors that my palate can ascertain...yeasty taste.

M: Mildly carbonated, leaves yeasty aftertaste that dissipates quickly.

O: OK. Only bought one to try. This won't be on the short list of UW beers. Might benefit from a splash of citrus but the lack there of makes this beer different that most UWs I have sampled.
