look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A truly excelent brew! The pour was great with a huge bubbly white head that settled nicely after a minute. The aroma hit me as soon as I started pouring with a sweet lemon scent and once I smelled the beer, faint scents of bananna and pepper mixed in as well giving this beer a very inviting smell.
The flavor of this brew was outstanding as well, with a light malt sweetness in the front and a slight bitterness in the finnish that was excentuated by the great carbonation of the beer. A wonderful drink for sure, very recommended. (535 characters)

this pours out a clean and clear golden with a fat white head that leaves behind some nice lacing. the nose is very clean, light, hints of malt and yeast. crisp in the mouth, refreshing and smooth. flavor wise its a winner as well. much sweeter than anticipated with a strong honey character. a little grainy and some yeast is in effect as well (think subdued heffe). slightly metallic and ends on a sweet note (vanilla?). not a great beer, but good. clean and crisp, enough flavor to fit the bill....not bad. (509 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep golden with a frothy white head. Light carbonation.

Sweet in the aroma, with notes of wheat, candi-sugar, and alcohol.

Smooth taste, light and sweet. Hoppy in the aftertaste, but initially it's all about the malt. Lovely.

This one's a keeper. (264 characters)

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. (422 characters)

3.99/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a mini mug.

Appearance: Cloudy sunset yellow, apple juice-like color. Looks like it was unfiltered, or at best, not filtered very heavily. Thin foam head with no visible carbonation through the glass. From the pour, not a bad beer, but nothing intense yet.

Smell: Oooh, man. Awesome. Banana bread and cloves, maybe sweet corn and pine. The nose is heavy and fruity, matches the appearance but does it one better by enticing me to take a sip, so I shall.

Taste: Yep, this is beer. The wheat flavor is much stronger here than in the scent, but it's not distracting. Questionable hops...there's something about this beer that isn't perfection to me; what that is, I can't put a finger on. As it stands, it's worth another taste.

Mouthfeel: Much like the scent, I am feeling the term "banana bread." Malty to the extreme, which works for this one (being a wheat beer and all). Goes down smooth but strong, and leaves a slightly earthy feeling afterwards. Also gut.

Drinkability: I'm not a big wheat beer guy, but I can't see any reason NOT to recommend this beer to a connoisseur. A bit heavy for me to take on a nightly basis, but then again, a taste that I could get used to.

This one is alright. Might be good to finish off an evening with, or as the only drink during a fireplace session. There's something soothing about this beer, and as such, I've gotta give it props. (1,412 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle purchased at the North Coast Co-op in Eureka, California.

Bright white, airy pillow of foam ascends rapidly as I pour. The head deflates after several minutes leaving no lace, but a curds and whey layer of foam on the surface of the brew. Body is luminous straw yellow.

Smell is a lemon pepper encrusted breadiness with some brighter, grassy notes springing in the background.

The taste kicks off with a bitter-sweet undertone that rises into a buttered bisquit sweetness. Aftertaste is an enjoyable rattle of hops on the tongue, and still that mild sweetness lingers.

Mouthfeel is light, as it should be, and plenty carbonated.

Refreshing and flavorful. (685 characters)
