I was pleased to pick thisone up at Armanetti's while on the quick trip to the "windy".
A good looking wheat beer that pours a bright yellow with a fair amount of cloud. A nice snow white, two finger head sits on top that offers a good amount of lace as the carbonation purks up the citric aroma. The taste is of wheat with a nice amount of lemon zest. A tartness is felt through the crisp hops while a nice solid malt hints the background of this medium bodied brew. The carbonation softens the mouthfeel which aids its drinkability. A great warm wheather beer im sure. If you can get it, try it. A good drinkable offering of this style.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with lots of carbonation and a very fizzy white head of about 2 inches.

Scent is dominated by sweet wheat and citrus odors.

Taste is a nice wheaty flavor with a very noticeable lemony zestiness and a nice crisp little hop finish. Much more pronounced flavors than most beers I have had in this style.

Mouthfeel is clean and crisp, very nice for this style of beer.

Drinkability is pretty solid on this one. Definitly one of the better wheat beers I have had, will be a great session beer on hot summer days.

Cloudy, bright pale yellow pour with a nice bubbly white head on top. Nice rising carbonation in my tall glass. Good sweet grainy nose along with hints of lemon and orange. Just a hint of spiciness as well. Not too bad.

A clean, crisp wheat grain maltiness along with some citric flavors of lemon, orange and even some ripe melon. A slight hop bitterness follows down the back of the palate along with a hint of spice. A nice example of a normally uninspiring style.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice wave of small bubbly carbonation that fills the mouth. Refreshing and easy to drink...this would make a great summer session brew. I could see myself having quite a few of these on a sunny day working in the yard. Definetly worth a try.

Hazy yellow with some tiny sediment and loose bubbly carbonation. Great white capped head that offers bananas, freshly peeled oranges, wheat bread and some oats. Tarty and sour-sweet, a sharp offering of lemon peel, coriander and some wheat. Medium bodied; medium carbonation. Strong bitter hops, kisses of black pepper on the palate; decent malt-based undertone. Pretty easy drinkin’ here, nothing wrong with this offering.

12 oz bottle best before 8/14/05

Pours a hazy yellow with a pillowy white head that diminishes greatly but sticks around until the end. The nose is the greatest part of this beer: toasted cereal, bready, a hint of banana and an uderlying citric aroma. Taste is much the same as the nose, but less intense. Wheaty and grassy, slightly fruity, with a little bitter hop finish. Lightly carbonated and very clean. This should make for a great session beer, especially in the summer.

I had this on tap at the Wrigleyville outpost.

Beer was a hazy light yellow with a nice dense head. Good lacing .

Nice Nose. Clear malt/wheat aroma with more than a bit of lemon and spice. Not the coriander of a German wheat, but a dash of pepper and all spice.

Nice tart, refreshing taste. The beer leads with a crisp wheat /lemon hinted blast. Lots of malt in the backbone. Cascade hops add a nice does of bitterness.

Easy drinking summer type beer with excellent carbonation per style. Very enjoyable beer.

Bottled and Draft at the Brewery: The next beer in their specialty retail line (as soon as they get approval for the labels). Baseline example of an American wheat: pale yellow beer under a bubbly head that clings a little to the plastic glass. Not as fizzy as other wheats. Hop taste is more traditionally bitter, not fruity like 3F's Gumballhead, and very well balanced to the malt profile. Sampling from the bottle reveals a slightly fruitier profile.
