Poured from a brown bottle into a weizen glass. Has a slightly cloudy caramel color with a small head. Smells very mild, not much aroma. Taste is crisp but not very flavorfull with mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and is fairly drinkable. Overall a pretty good beer.

Cloudy and a murky dark gold color. The head is wispy and gives to what one might call "light lacing." The nose reminds of melted snow. The flavor is very simple and consistent with the nose. This is not a bad beer, but it isn't anything to scream about either. The flavor and the nose seems to me to be similar to a winter warmer without the spices. The most descriptive terms that I can apply to the flavor are that it tastes like melted snow was used as the water and mild hops was added. Again. . . it was average.

Pours a hazy, golden/orange color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, yeast, slight grain, and a hint of citrus. Fits the style of a American Pale Wheat. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp with an average carbonation level. Tastes of wheat, sweet malt, yeast, slightly acidic/tart, and a hint of honey.

Brought this back with me from a trip to WI last month.

This beer pours a slightly orange/golden color. Murky and cloudy. Pretty good-sized head on this, but it disappears fairly quickly. Minimal lacing. Not very sticky at all.

Smells pretty avarage. Sweet malt some bread tones pulling through.

A slight metallic bite at the onset. Some mealy taste going on. Very low bitterness. Crisp yet watery. Very drinkable, yet without alot of flavor.

Average brew at best. Not the best representation of the style, but it was refreshing to quaff.
