12oz bottle about 1.5mo old; review from notes

Pours a terrific looking cloudy yellow gold. Looks a bit like Mt. Dew. smell is bready: wheat, grain , yeast, coriander, spice, as it warms there's pumpkin. Taste is more of the same: bright/clean yeast bread/wheat, some lemon, coriander, light pepper. Finish is crisp grain. Feel is a tad thin, maybe little undercarbonated.

Great tasty wheat, with moderate complexity. I could drink this all day.

Pours a light golden with way too much head. Decent lacing when the head finally disappeared. Nose is grassy,with hints of lemon...Something not quite right.Body is light and carbonated, but dry, not crisp Taste is grainy, with some hints of fruit. tart finish. Barley average. Don't go out of your way....

Pale straw color and lightly hazey. There's some columns of sluggish bubbles rising to the top. No head or foam after the pour.

Straw, crackers, pilsner malt, a little grass, and maybe a little yeasty fruit aromas. Very subdued overall.

Flavor is light cracker, pilsner malt, and barnyard straw. Tastes earthy, very little yeast flavors noticed. Very plain, and watered down tasting wheat ale. Easy, bubbley, crisp palate makes for very easy drinking.
