Hazy golden straw color, pillowy white head. Aroma is grass, coriander, bubblegum, oranges. Citrus zest and spicy phenols dominate flavor, medium bitterness. Light bodied, drying, high carbonation, leaves the palate quickly, hop bitterness lingers. Very refreshing, palate cleansing.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

LOOKS: A hazy, golden/lemon, with a slight head that is gone quickly. Not much for carbonation rising.
Aroma: Slight skunky/grassy hops, and a bready malt.
TASTE: A little bit of lemon peel, bready malt.
FEEL: Good full carbonation, thinner body, but, not watery, dryer on the finish.
OVERALL: OK. Much better stuff out there.

Bottle from Albertsons. Hazy golden, small ring of head. Light grainy aroma, right where it needs to be. Taste too is bready, crackers, biscuits. Solid wheat ale.

Pours a hazy gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong wheat, slight Euro yeast, and slight citrus hops. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong wheat, slight Euro yeast, slight citrus hops, hint of coriander, hint of clove, and a hint of floral hops. Overall, good appearance and feel, but lacking in aroma and the body is average.

Got this at Marcellars in Idaho Falls. Has a best by date of 8/30/2017.

Appearance: light golden hazy with a finger of off white head that diminishes quickly with little lacing.

Smell: Wheats and malt first. Then a bit of citrus and spices.

Taste: wheat comes through most. Then some malty bread flavor.

Feel: Good carbonation, almost seems a bit watery.

Overall: A pretty good wheat beer from an excellent brewery. I am a little dissapointed in this one though.

Ok Amer Pale Wheat Ale. Pours an almost clear gold color with a foamy white head and thin bands of lacing on the pint glass. Head retention is better than average. Aroma is very mild. A little citrus, lemon, and a slight amount of wheat bitterness. Taste is pretty mild too. Once again, lemon, wheat bitterness, and a little grassy hops. Mouth feel is light and refreshing. Overall, an ok thirst quencher.

Taste is more banana wheat with some earthy notes.

Feel is average. Nice drinkability.

Overall a fine beer that I'd glady drink again.
