Poured a cloudy golden, with a bright white head typical of a wheat ale. Grassy, mild herby aroma. Taste was nice, not much to describe. Very easy drinking, a great beer for hot weather. Not a bad beer, by any means, just wouldn't grab a six pack amongst other choices from CO.

Light orange amber, cloudy, especially once the yeast is poured. Nose is, um, subdued, with some citric rind notes but mostly a very clean malt sweetness.

Light side of medium, plenty of carbonation that whisks it quickly off the palate. Sweet malt lends a bready chewiness, lightly peppered hops flash in and out briefly. Finish is nondescript and very clean.

Not going to challenge the taste buds, very clean and light all around. Easy drinker but no real reason to choose this over another American wheat.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Light golden color, with a little yeast hazing. No head, low viscosity.

Aroma: Smells like a pilsner - yeast and light malt. Honey, orange and citrus notes hanging around, but not much of an aroma.

Taste: Very light, and pretty refreshing - but not really characteristic of a wheat beer. My wife compares this (not particularly favorably) to Leinie's wheat/weiss offerings. Tastes to me like a pilsner. Subtle citrus notes, and a little banana at times.

Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing. Low carbonation. No bitters in the finish at all.

Drinkability: Great, but not wheat beer drinkability. Reminds me more of micro-macro styles (New Glarus Spotter Cow and Naked, Capital Island Wheat, Straub etc) than of more solid American wheat beers. Seems to havethe characteristic Odell underdevelopment of flavors too. If I could find it at the right price, it could still be a great yardwork/summer porch beer that you could work on for hours without ending up strung out.

Poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, golden hue. The head is fluffy and white, leaving lacing on the edges of the glass. Since the beer is unfiltered, you can see the yeast floating around in the brew as it stands still. Overall, this is a healthy looking wheat beer.

Smell: As expected, a smell of wheat and grains dominates. There is also a slight tangy aroma within this brew as well. It's nothing complicated, but pleasing.

Taste: Light, crisp, and refreshing. A light malt taste begins, and spreads out over my tongue. It finishes quickly without an aftertaste. Nothing complex here, but this is great for a hot summer day.

Mouthfeel: Light and slick. The body is unobtrusive.

Drinkability: These are quite easy to drink, and would be ideal for a session. If I saw this available on tap, I would definitely give it a shot at a bar.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: pours with a less than 1" off white sudsy head which recedes slowly. Lacing is very slight. Color is a very cloudy gold. Lots of sedimentation in suspension (with more yeast ’chunks’ stuck in the bottom of the bottle)
Aroma: grassy wheat is the dominate smell, but there is also some malt sweetness, and clean water.
Mouthfeel: light, watery and fairly crisp. The beer is somewhat sticky and adheres to the roof of the mouth.
Flavor: sweet barley malts and grassy wheat are nicely balanced. Hop presence is quite mild but there is a slight bitterness lingering in the finish.
Overall: a nice example of the style. This a pleasant and refreshing beer, especially on a hot summer day.

A_Pours a relatively clear tasted wheat colour. for an unflitered beer where is the sediment. The head is relatively small and doesnt last as is.

S_Mild wheat aroma with a twinge of generic hop scent. A bit too mild for my taste but not offensive in any way.

T_A faint malt sweetness mingles well with a mild wheat acidity. A mild hop bitterness dries out the finish which leads to a crisp overall experience.

M_Light bodied, medium carbonation. Just about right for what it tries to be.

D_A well rounded beer that manages to be rather refreshing. While there are obvious flaws this is a beer I would reach for again if I could.

Purchased this bottle in Denver on a trip, with a bottle date of 4-5-12. A little out of date but poured into my beer goblet with a swirl.

Appearance: A nice orangish opaque beer due to the yeast suspension. This one has a few larger specks that may be due to the age of the bottle.

Smell: Not terribly strong in the scent category. I get a vague wheat, some spiciness I suspect from the hops and yeast. A light citric note as well.

Taste: This is a thirst quencher. A more pronounced wheat in the taste, with the other flavors noted in the smell. As suspected, I think this may be a little beyond its best. Not bad, but not great either. I will hunt down another bottle.

Mouthfeel: The suspended yeast add to the solidity of the mouthfeel. The carbonation is OK as is the light to medium body.

Overall: I wish I had not let this one sit so long. This one is supposed to be really good and I found it only ok.
