3.4/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a hazy straw color with a centimeter thick head that dissipates quickly. Leaves a nice lacing.

Smell - I can barely pick up an aroma. Just smells like wheat mostly.. along will a very light trace of citrus.

Taste - Seems to be quite watery.. It has a strong wheat flavor (which I like). Pale malts, a medium sweetness, grains, and bread. Has a weird bitter citrus flavor in the finish..

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with high carbonation.

Overall - This is just a very simple wheat ale. No special ingrdients, just mostly a plain wheat flavor. It's very drinkable in my opinion, just unsophisticated is all..

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

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.

2.31/5  rDev -26.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

DATE TASTED: January 25, 2014... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner...OCCASION: finishing Clash of Kings, I believe... APPEARANCE: hazy, bubbly, thin-headed sallow gold body; nondescript otherwise; no lacing... AROMA: somewhat pungent, lemon dish detergent scent; some lager malts provide a backbone; slightest banana and apple... PALATE: medium-bodied slightly effervescent; almost sudsy in its aftertaste--fizzy...TASTE: such subtle flavors--lightly lemon; predominantly metallic ping akin to a pilsner; lacking a refreshing, clean drag--just dragging... OVERALL: I understand the attempt is a wheat ale, but Wheat Monkey straddles the styles without pulling the better elements of either into my mouth; instead, it's more like monkeying around, making use of a playful label and silly enough name to attract attention--by far the weakest of what was a successful mix pack...
