Bottle from Bu’s Café: Poured a glowing neon yellow hue topped with a thick fluffy white head. Aroma is faint yet does have the smell of citrus and lemon zest and squeezed lemon juice. The flavor is mild but has an upfront taste of artificial lemon zest. Reminds me of the flavor of eating lemon peels.

Pours a clear yellow on tap with dissipating white head. Aroma is wheat and slight lemon tartness. Tate is sweet with a grainy wheat background. Meh.

Refrigerated brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy yellow with medium frothy head. Lemon aroma, well carbonated, thin body, and thick big bubble lacing. Taste is herbal/grassy hops, some lemon, with dryer finish. Doesn’t do it for me.

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle from the mix a six at Publix. Pours a hazy yellow with medium white fizzy head. Aroma of artifical citrus and wheat. Taste is some tangy lemon citrus and weak wheat. This was a bit thin and overall not much going on. I would have sworn that I was going to like this beforehand, but afterwards this is certainly known not to be my thing.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a pale gold color with a small white head. Weak nose with a hint of lemon and wheat. Rather watery on the tongue with stale and dull lemon and wheat notes. Really not a whole lot else here. Light body, weak finish. Pass on this weak citrusy wheat brew.

Aroma is lemon soda and grassy/skunky. The flavor is lemons, mild sweetness, malts and a tangy/tart finish.

AmEricanbrew (5662) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Hazy golden color with white sheen. Big lemon peel, dough, dry floral, coriander aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Tart lemon flavors with white bread, dry spices---not bad

thegreenrooster (3174) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is nice. Plenty of wheat malt with a lemony back round. Flavor lets this one down. Definitely a wheat malt base but almost none of the lemon. Turns into a boring wheat beer real fast.

DrSilverworm (6030) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Pint on tap at Keystone in Hyde Park. Surprisingly floral flavor. A lot of jasmine. Mostly clear paler yellow color. Thin white head. Pretty good thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly sticky in the finish. Lemon, floral jasmine wheat flavor. Moderate sweet taste, nothing cloying. Lightly zesty. Liked this quite a bit more than expected.
