Brewed for American Craft Beer Week, a common recipe for an American Wheat Ale, brewed by brewpubs and breweries all over the U.S.A.

Very clouded, straw yellow, under a big head, that dies quickly.

Aroma: soft citrus, little hops, floral, barest hints of banana, and just a bit of spice.

Taste: big wheat flavor, smooth, excellent drinkability...some citrus and straw...a little tickle on the palate, then utter quaffability. Lemon and orange, with a little coriander, maybe clove...citrus and spice and smooth.

This doesn't taste quick like it did when I had it at the pub, but, then, for some reason, I've been sitting on this for 3 weeks, or so. Not something I do often. Still good, though, but not as good as when fresh.

Draft. Unfiltered wheat beer made for Craft Beer Week. Poured a cloudy orange/yellow color with a slight white head. Very minimal aroma coming from this one. Slight hops flavors combined with the wheaty flavors. Light and refreshing but overall just ok.

Murky looking body of burnt and dulled yellow. Very little head. Recedes to just a rimming of white quickly. Aroma is baked cinnamon bread, doughy and gooey, as a malt base. A little bit of spice on the nose in addition, but not much. Lacing is pretty sporadic. Flavor is so-so. American wheats aren't my favorite style, but this is a decent one. Not as much doughy feel to it on the palate. A little citrusy and spicy. Moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Good try here, but I'll take the fantastic Town Hall Hefe any day of the week over this as a summer drinker.
