12oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint. Bottled June Wk2 2009. Thanks to BeerFMAndy for the trade!
(A)- Pours a cloudy goldenrod color that had a huge foam head, but now is just a light layer of off-white bubbles. Minimal lacing, if at all.
(S)- Pale citrus of predominately lemon with orange. Rather earthy (clay & hay) in aroma. Yeasty wheat.
(T)- Lots of wheat and lemon on the tongue. Small bananna & clay aspect but very miniscule. Very yeasty with a tiny bitter twang. Some spice present.
(M)- Thicker in texture than what I was expecting, but no complaints in regards to it. Carbonation level is good, but could use even more. Fruity & crisp with a bite.
(D)- A solid Wheat beer that has what you want and should have for the style. Great for summer. A 6pk wouldnt stand a chance!

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.

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.
