    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    pours a pale yellow color that is slightly cloudy, a great puffy large head, lots of tiny bubbles, moderate lacing left. The aroma is floral, fruity, sweet smell, slightly of citrus and is all around appeasing. The taste has a faint lemon taste and faint grass notes The mouthfeel is light and clean.

    To be honest I have to agree With Stoutlover72 on this..It is an average beer and SN makes so many more that are better. That being said I am not going to turn it down if someone was to offer it to me.

    Smells of wheat and yeast with some citrus. Pours Hazy yellow with some head. Great medium mouthfeel with balanced carbonation and a smooth finish. Flavor was basic wheat beer.. wheaty and bready...

    This is one of those take it or leave it beers. I will usually pass it up on the aisles, for a couple of reasons. One, wheat ales (esp American wheat ales) just are so freakin’ boring. Sessionable, yes, but boring. Two, SN makes so many other better beers it’s easier to go with them.

    The beer itself it pretty average. An aroma of wheat, light lemons (like someone already squeezed some in my beer), yeast and a touch of grass. Cloudy yellow, large pillowy head and visible carbonation. Flavor has some light grass, wheat, some yeast and a touch soapy/flowery. Not SN’s best, but passable.

    Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. The appearance is a cloudy straw colour. A decent white head is gone quickly and leaves some lacing. Wheat (of course) and lemons are in the nose. The taste is the same wheat and lemon, with bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is thin with low carbonation. Drinkability suffers a bit since the bitterness follows the drink down the throat and hangs around for a few seconds. It's not bad, but I probably will not revisit when there is better beer available.

    is ehhh a word. nothing really to write about this one. totally standard, unspactacular beer. slightly hoppier, but thin. about the same as the crystal wheat, just looks a little diferent.

    Poured a light golden color slightly hazy beer with a foamy white head with fair retention. Aroma is on the weak side with a little bread and subtle hop notes. A taste of wheat with a slight touch of bitter hops. Medium mouth feel. Overall, just average.

    Pours a murky golden color topped with a small to moderate head. Lemon, slightly malt aroma. This is a very refreshing, easy drinking beer but don't expect to be wowed. Lemon, citrus flavor with a touch of hops and quite smooth. Drink a bunch of these in the sun.

    A refreshing beer that is basically forgettable on most levels... Lacking head with no staying power,...A muddled taste that refreshes while it disappoints... watery...A beer for those who need cooling down in 135 degree weather...

    This beer poured a nice cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head with great retention. It had little aroma and a very mild flavor. I did notice some subtle hops in it which balanced it out well.

    Pours a cloudy, hazey golden/orange body with a small white head. Aroma is fruit forward. Mouthfeel is light, well carbonated and very refreshing. Plenty of lively fruit flavor, finishes very clean.
