In a pint glass this beer was a hazy orange color with a thick white head.

Fresh, outdoors aroma. Sweet fruit.

Taste of wheat, banana, and honey. I thought the dominant taste was honey.

This beer was just a little too sweet for me. Still, it did quench my thirst on a hot day in Albuquerque.

One of the few from Marble that I hadn't tried. And while wheat beers aren't really my thing, I am glad I picked this up. It is going to be a summer go-to; yard work status. Wheat, dough, floral hints, lemon, and a wonderfully pleasant honey. Can't recall a beer where the honey comes through this well.

Poured a cloudy yellow with a finger and a half fluffy white head that receded to a thin white head that left a fair amount of lacing down the glass. Pretty good looking beer. Scents of honey, floral hops and bubblegum. Nice American Pale Wheat scent. Flavors of doughy wheat, floral hop notes and a light honey-like sweetness. Light, pleasant, easy to drink, but with a nice flavor. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation, par for the style. Easy to drink. A good American Pale Wheat ale. It has a nice light feel and is great for summer.

Big white head dies into a decent lacing above a slightly cloudy honey golden colored beer.

Lemony citrus, yeasts, and light grains divide the aroma quite nicely.

Citrus (lemony) and grassy style hops, grain malts, and some honey in the taste.

A slightly dry aftertaste with a bit of the lemony citrus tastes hanging around on this light bodied wheat beer.

Wow, I'm not a wheat beer drinker by definition but I think I could drink this stuff in quantity.

Appearance: Dark golden, more so than most wheat beers, especially pale wheat ales. Color is very nice. Foam is good as well, but the downfall is the over-carbonation.

Smell: Faint hints of mowed grass and honey.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Starts nice with a bit of honey. Finish is way too bitter. Definitely too much carbonation.

Drinkability: Middle of the road as far as wheat beers.

On tap at Marble taproom in Santa Fe (which does small taste sizes and half-pints).

Half-finger of white head over translucent white-yellow body. Laces decently.

Nice wheaty nose, faint banana.

Full wheaty body, quite sweet,, a bit of honey.

Mouthfeel is great for a wheat: nice and thick.

Overall a nice heff-- quite sweet, though.

Pours a hazy golden straw color with a frothy white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smells of citrus wheat notes and banana fruitiness.

Tastes of big wheat notes. Plenty of lemon is present with some back end, honey sweetness. Banana also comes through and a bit of floral notes.

Mouthfeel is medium-light with a creamy amount of carbonation.

This isn't marble's best offering by any means, but it isn't bad either. For reference I just had Sierra Kellerweis the other day which is spicier and a better tasting beer overall than this wheat. But, like all of Marble's beer's, there is obviously some quality in here.

First, with all wheat(especially this one) the suspended yeast really adds to the flavor so make sure to pour 3/4's of the beer, swirl and then top it off.

Smell is powdered sugar and lemon.

Taste is interesting in that it has an Ale backbone... almost as if somebody mixed a fine New Glarus Spotted Cow with an average wheat beer like say Widmer. THe result is average. It's not spicy enough, nor does it have the mouthfeel or banana to make it shine in this style. The lemon is the favored flavor profile here with that ale backbone.

It's very drinkable though.... especially for that lawnmower quality... but hacker or paulaner this is NOT. This is where the wheat beers in this country get iffy... I mean besides dancing man wheat and kellerweis... there just isn't much to choose from... hell, you might be better off heading the grocer and getting a 12 of Blue Moon - twice the beer for the price, and at least you know what you're getting. For this price I can get two bomber's of Schneider-Weisse, and we all know that's a MUCH BETTER value.

A bit too tart and ale'ish, but not a bad beer... their red is great... this is the style that Germany has a stranglehold on... if anybody has some American suggestions that might change my mind - let me know.
