12oz : bottle

Pours a hazy, golden-apricot color with a fizzy, foamy white head.

Grainy wheat, lemony grass notes.

Wheat, with light fruity, lemony notes. Simple, but enjoyable.

Medium body, soft carbonation.

Well done for the style. As I mentioned above, simple, but quite tasty.

From 12oz bottle to Due South pint glass on 6/27/12
*From notes

A: A decent pour yields a 2.25 finger white head. Cloudy golden in hue.

S: Slightly subdued. Some banana, but not a lot. A bit of nutmeg, but faint

T: Lacking a lot of the bigger characteristics you'd associate with the style. More of a crowd pleaser. Some golden malt and some banana skin. Inoffensive yet moderately tasty, I suppose.

M: Actually pretty solid. Creamy and thick enough.

O: Nowhere near the top of the American Pale Wheat heap, yet there's a lot of shit that this leaves in the dust. Not the first I'd reach for, but certainly not the last.

A very cloudy light gold, almost yellow. A huge, almost white head leaves plenty of lacing.

Smells of lemon zest, wheat and yeast.

Taste of light citrus, and wheaty malts, but not much yeasty tang.

Feels very smooth, with a lighter texture and very easy to drink.

I was never a fan of this version of wheat beers. The beer is easy to drink, and not offensive in flavor/aroma, but those aren't what you aim for...

Botttled March 2nd, 2012:

Into a pint glass:

A: cloudy golden-yellow colored body with a small one finger fluffy white head that dies within ten seconds. Some spotty lacing is found trickling around the sides of the glass. Some light carbonation is seen rising.

S: centered around the wheat with a mix of banana, pepper, and lemon.

T: basically the same, even after the beer warms.

M: light with about a moderate carbonation, quite drinkable

O: this is a decent beer. I would say this is good for this time of year. Nothing outstanding yet nothing bad
