A- Hazy golden yellow with a one finger head.

S- Light citrus and bready grain aromas.

T- There's a nice grainy/bready malt balance right of the bat. Following that, to provide some intrest and dimension, there's some light lemony citrus character and an even lighter background banana note. All the flavors evenly tapper off into the finish with only a slight estery note.

M- Light and crisp, the carbonation is good and not overdone.

D- Despite not being a big fan of the style it's pretty damn drinkable.

For what it is, it's great. I'd put this against any other american style wheat out there.

I would rate Wheat Money right around what I would rate 312 as far as wheat beers go. I've had Wheat Monkey in a bottle and from the tap.

A- Has a golden-brown appearance, very similar to Green Line.

S- Has a distinct smell of sweet wheat.

T- Has a earthy taste of wheat with a hoppy finish.

M- Has a smooth beginning with nice viscosity.

I would recommend this beer with fish, burgers, steak, pretty much anything. Isn't too overpowering and wouldn't take away from the taste of any foods.

Cheers!

A: The beer is hazy straw yellow in color and has some fine yeast particles visible floating in suspension near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a short white head that rapidly died down, leaving only a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of wheat are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell in that it has flavors of wheat with additional notes of bready malts and slight bits of associated sweetness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink but doesn't have much in the way of aromas or interesting flavors.
