Very lackluster wheat beer. Pale yellow color, very hazy as one would expect from a wheat, but unforunately that is the best that can be said of it. The flavor was quite unremarkable, actually very bland. No hints of the citrus flavors one would expect in a wheat beer. Aroma was somewhat earthy, maybe grassy would be a better description. All told, one of the worst wheat beers I have had.

Pours a nice cloudy straw colow, with just a tiny bit of head and little lacing. It has a nice clean and crisp scent, a little citrus aroma with nice wheat overtones. It tastes good, very clean with a nice sweet taste and hints of orange. Think along the lines of a Blue Moon. It goes down very smoothly, too.

Well after a atone ruination ipa I needed something more light. looks pretty good, has a very cloudly orange juice type color to it with no head at all. Aroma is very citrusy, also has a nice yeast body to it. Taste is good, has a clean easy drinking taste and is very refreshing. Mouthfeel is ok, pretty light on the tongue but that is expected. Drinkability is good too, give it a shot

This brew pours a small head of large white bubbles and a transparent light yellow orange body. It was flat, lacked character and had a very poor taste. This was the worst brew I tasted at the Brew-Ha-Ha in Indianapolis.

From a sampler: This beer pours a hazy dark yellow color with a medium thick and foamy white head. The aroma is somewhat wheaty with a touch of hops. No real lacing to speak of. Kind of thin body, with a smooth and mild character. It's really not all that wheaty and the finish was on the bland side. Not one of their better attempts.

Menu said the ABV on this beer is 4.5%, and that it is unfiltered. The original poster calls this beer a witbeer, the menu said American Wheat (maybe that was a typo??), although this beer has the clover aroma/flavor you would expect in a Heffeweizen. Very cloudy as expected for a wheat. Finishes crisp.

I liked this beer, although it does not have the characteristics of an American Wheat.
