3.18/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a clear golden hue with a mountainous head that won't quit. Finally settles at about one finger leaving a thick lace. Sweet malty aroma with citrus and clove at the forefront. Smells clean and refreshing. Piney taste with a sweet bite. Fairly well carbonated with extremely small bubbles. Towards the middle the taste thins out to be pretty bland. Very weak finish. Started out strong, but left me very disappointed.

2.86/5  rDev -25.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: This was a yellow beer with a huge, fluffly white head. A thin layer persisted the entire drink. Not much else to say.

Smell: I know there wasn't any in there, but this beer smelled strongly of corn. Especially straight from the bottle, where I thought I was sniffing a can of creamed corn. There were also grassy, straw-like aromas combined with a light lemon smell.

Mouthfeel: Thin- to medium-bodied and very smooth, especially for a wheat beer.

Taste: There were strong, chewy flavors of wheat, straw, and just grass in general. A hint of tartness emerged occasionally, but it was very mild and not at all as prevalent as it is in other wheat beers that I have had. A sticky sweetness arose on the finish that continued to build, becoming too strong for my tastes. It was this element of the flavor that knocked the taste catagory down to a three.

I'm not sure why they want to make a "crystal clear filtered wheat." What's wrong with a good ol' cloudy wheat beer? Even non-hefe wheats have a little something floatin' around in 'em.

While this is not a bad brew (the corny smell and the sweetness are what hurt this beer's rating), I won't be picking it up again. Especially not when there are so many great wheat beers out there.

2.48/5  rDev -35.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours amber with a thin head that drops fast.. Clear (duh). Smell is light fruit and malt. Taste is the same. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly fizzy. Drinkability: Eh. Nothing special, really makes me reconsider my purchase. Should have gone with something else. Well, there is always next time.
