A - Clear golden yellow with a little head.
S - Wheat (maybe) and very faint tartness. All notes are super muted.
T - Taste is mild with a faint sweetness, not much discernable
M - mild carbonation, very light
O - Not super wheaty, not that great, but certainly drinkable if someone hands you one. Just not bold enough for my liking.

A wheat with the slight citrus already built in, who needs a garnish. Pretty well rounded.

Taste Rating in Words: It's bale jumping on Sunday, fun, sun, and a hole lot-a hay.

Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, fizzy head. It smelled of wheat, orange and clove. Fairly sweet with a strong wheat presence. Not a lot going on here.

Pours a darker golden color with an off white soap bubble head that falls rather quickly.

The smell is quite faint, but typical f the style. A little bubble gum and fruitiness, a tiny bit of spice. The backdrop is a bit green and grassy. Just a little of the hop notes.

The taste essentially follows along. It has all the components, but not too strong in flavor. It is easy to drink as nothing overwhelms or sticks out, so it is a decently made beer. There is a little coriander flavor that lingers on along with some bubblegum. Just a little on the sweet side. No bitterness to speak of, pretty neutral flavors overall.

The feel seems rather unlively to me and a bit on the watery side. Slightly undercarbonated, but the beer just doesn't have much life to it.

This is an OK beer, nothing outstanding, but serviceable and certainly drinkable. Nothing wrong with it at all, it has good characteristics, just lacks some punch.

Unknown bottled date

Pours very light yellow, clearlittle if any head but full collar

Smell is grassy, hay, barnyard.

Taste continues the grassy theme with ample bitterness too. Coriander like spice.

Feel is light bodied, thin, and clean. Moderate carbonation. Easy drinking.

Simple wheat ale with typical character of one. Clean feel and moderate flavors.

Pretty standard wheat beer. A bit flat in look and feel. I am a fan of this style and can be super critical of those who try to replicate a beloved German standard....that said this is good, but certainly not great.

Aroma is wheat/wheat bread and spices. The flavor is wheat/wheat bread, fruit, mild spices, light citrus and a mix of mildly tart and slightly sour in the finish.

DATE TASTED: March 11, 2016... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen.. OCCASION: a rough day ends in The Hobbit and beer... APPEARANCE: a light, translucent golden copper body that shows the faintest bubbles; the head thins quickly, off-white and sudsy, like soap... ... AROMA: the noble hops establish a strength that tips the ale.... bubble gum and fruity esters make for a light, airy bouquet... .. PALATE: smooth, tight and light-bodied.... easy-drinking and only a suggestion of effervescence.. reads almost like a malty pilsner... TASTE: mouth-watering bubble gum and soft clove meld with some dampening hops to make a sippable taste--the malts make for a smooth, richer backbone than the usual wheat... in fact, its sweetness makes for a beer whose flavor matches the in-between-ness of March, with warm days and cold nights... OVERALL: the sum is greater than its parts here, as this beer doesn't produce a complex character... what it offers is a pleasant, sippable wheat whose strength is palpable and whose balance is winning...

Gold in color with vibrant carbonation bubbles erupting from within. There's no discernible head on top. I smell light pale wheat with a lightly syrupy sweet edge. The taste is of lightly pale wheat with a light sweetness that is almost cloying. The mouth is a bit watery and highly carbonated.

Hazy golden brew with a medium-sized white head. The aroma is lightly floral, with a bit of fruit underneath....some peach and citrus....and a soft malt scent. The taste is semi-sweet, with just a little yeast flavor and the continuation of the fruit smell. Soft in body, with a slightly sweet finish. Nice.
