A: The beer is hazy yellow in color. It poured with just a thin layer of white bubbles covering the surface that faded away, leaving only a thin collar around the edge fo the glass.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of wheat along with hints of lemons.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink given its light-bodied nature.

A: Pours a hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint orange colored highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that quickly reduces to a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer (90%+) and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat malts with hints of citrus/lemon and grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of wheat malts with minimal amounts of sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of citrus/lemon and hints of grassy hops. There is a very light amount of bitterness from the hop but it fades away fairly quickly leaving lingering wheat malts flavors.

M: Light bodied with slightly stronger than moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Enjoyable and refreshing but there is not much presence from the yeast esters that I would have expected in an American Hefeweizen as described by the brewery.

Pours hazy bright golden color with robust head of white foam. Light lemon peel, citrus and banana notes dashed with light spice and held together with a mild floral hop. Easy drinking smooth and summery American-style wheat without the Bavarian spice.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a hazy golden color with a half inch, white head, modest retention and even more modest lacing.
S: Very little nose: I can imagine lemon and banana, maybe. More grassy and grainy, to be honest.
T: Dry. Flavors of grains and grasses with very light maltiness and no more than lemon and spice notes. Light bitterness contributes to a refreshing close.
M: Light to medium bodied with modest carbonation.
O: Drinkable and enjoyable, but nothing special.

Clear, light amber with a modest foam in the Blanche de Chambly glass. They call this an "American Hefeweizen," but it really just has the usual pale wheat flavors rather than the German esters. Some sediment but it doesn't cloud the brew. Carbonation doesn't hold up so well in the glass.

The lemon was perplexing until I read the label. It's quite a pleasant and very citrusy flavor, but definitely perfumey. Light and a little wheaty. Fairly sweet and more of a Shandy with all the lemonade taste. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Chuck's 85th St. Market in Seattle.

Thanks for this one go to Sharpski. I found this beer rather dull and bland, like a watered down version of Widmer Hefe. and that beer is not exactly a flavor explosion across the palate. Not a terrible beer, might be worth having if you really need a wheat beer fix.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: pale golden hue with a light haze and light effervescence, and a light dusting of floaties in the body. Head is a thin layer of fizzy white foam which subsided rather quickly. It's OK, I guess.

Smell: it's a little perfumey, to be honest. The label says there's an addition of lemon peel, which explains it partially; it's lemony, but has a certain floral gum element to it. It's interesting; if you are into floral aromas, this beer might be for you.

Taste: like the aroma, there's a big, almost soapy, floral element here. The lemon comes through a little bit, though not as strongly as in the aroma. It's definitely got a voice.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a great big huge carbonation. I'm a sucker for a big, evanescent creaminess like this beer has. Shazam!

Overall: very drinkable. A little bit weird. Worth a try if you are into botanicals.
