mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2006
Draught. Pours foggy orange-gold with a frothy white head leaving intricate lace sheets. The aroma is excellent - lots of grassy hops and then notes of cookie dough. Underwhelming hop profile though there is a bit of sharp bitterness that doesn’t mix well. The malts are cookiesh but seem too sweet for the most part. Yeasty and alcoholic. Sampled at the restaurant in Beersel on May 11, 2006.

pivnizub (9865) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 16, 2006
Bottle (donated by Yogi_Beera!): Orangey coloured, creamy off-white layer, a bit lacing; robust fruity nose: oranges, lemons, orange-peel with a touch of wheat malt and yeast; only light sweetish, mainly dry fruity flavour with an illusion of acidity, creamy mouthfeel; fruity, citrousy finish with a shy tart bitterness; well rounded with well hidden alcohol......A very pleasant Wheat-beer...........or Ale ?

rauchbier (3734) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2006
3 year old bottle, at Oud Arsenaal, Antwerp March 2005. Copper bronze, moderate off white head and good condition. Sweet yeast and gentle banana fruitiness in the nose, more sweetness and bananas in the mouth with a pleasant underlying oxidized note, gentle chalky yeast lingering in the finish.

Fruity, light spongy and carboardy aroma. Hazy orange amber, blanket lacing head. Heavy and round first impression, strength is evident, fruity, hayish, minerally yeast. Oily mouthfeel, pearling carbonation. Bready aftertaste.

hazy orange colour with a firm creamy head and a beautiful lacing; bready nose with citrusy, grapefruity notes; tart, medium to full malt body, some acidity and a long dry aftertaste of orange peel and almonds - a very nice brew

pivo (2651) - GERMANY - OCT 31, 2005
Dried grass nose with some yeast, hazy gold color, creamy head that reduces to a tight lather. Doughy malt with hints of apricots and a touch of vanilla. Orange peel-like bitter end. Got the sense that some kind of candisugar was used, but that’s not listed as an ingredient. Fully body and well done.

YogiBeera (2558) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Small frothy head, leaving laces on the glass. Deep orange color. Orange peel nose with some band aid notes too. Light Koriander and lavender taste. Fizzy carbonation. Interesting.

thebeertourist (5169) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Bottle. Hazy golden with a big white head. Complex spiced and yeasty aroma with some herbal character. Initial sweet maltiness, developing into more bready flavours with moderate spices. Interesting.
