    Cloudy gold, no head to speak of. Aroma of hay, even alfalfa, and even a teeny whiff of something like licorice or tobacco. Not amazing, but honestly distinctive. Flavor intensifies and overlays the hay with a bitter hop note, round and lovely, perhaps some wood and spice. It's true that it's grainy. RJA is right to suggest drinking it warmer. Thin, but I find the mild fizziness pleasant. Overall, I wanted something better. May have to re-review at another time.

    Aroma is not strong, but tempts with wheaty and yeasty notes and a lemony undertone. It pours a slightly hazy bright yellow with a very thick head. Satisfying flavor has a wheaty core and firm citrus and yeasty notes. Texture has only average fizz and body, but still satisfies. A good summery brew to cool you off on a broiling day.

    better than average, sunny and bright, with that hint of what. it does taste more like an extract beer, but there is nothing wrong with that. I good starter beer for all but those who want glutten free.

    pours a nice golden color, just a little cloudy, with nice white head which stayed around for a while. A citrus aroma quickly rose up from the glass. Had a little less wow factor then i had hoped but overall a nice drinkable beer especially on hot summer days.

    sawingandamiss for southern tier. that’s a first. uninspired muddled malts, wheat, and a touch of hops on the nose and in the flavor. not what i’d reach for as a wheat, or a hoppy beer. easily their weekest.

    A very slight cloudy golden straw color pour with a bubbly white head and very little lacing. Aromas of wet sweet wheat and malts with some lemon zest. Taste is slightly sweet and a bit of lemon - zesty and almost bubbly. Refreshing and rather clean.

    A hazy straw colored beer. Clouds of wheat drop into the body on successive pours. A bof foamy textured, white head rises above. Some hang time, settling into soapy film on the sides of the glass and a light irregular cap atop the body. The aroma is a light lemony and a lot more wheat. The body is moderate and creamy. The flavors are a dance of wheat, bitterness and spiciness. Let this warm and it gets so much better.

    Bottled@Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is citrus, lemongrass as well as some rather dry hayish notes. Flavour is quite fruity with big fruity and hayish notes as well. Ends in a rather grainy way.

    Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a foamy, fizzy white head. Aroma is grassy with hints of grain and lemon. Taste is grainy but with a bit of hop bitterness and citrus. Plain compared to the pale ales and IPAs I usually drink but still flavorful enough for the style. Really hits the spot after some time out in the sun.

    Soft aroma of lemon and grass, not much else. Straw yellow color with a hazy body, 3/4" fuzzy head, and spotty lacing. Balanced feel with a sharp, quick bitter bite. Light bodied with an empty finish. Grainy flavor with plenty of dry wheat and mild, bland hops. A touch of citrus zest and flowers. Kind of blah in the grand scheme of things.
