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.

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.

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.
