UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Brewvival Trip Beer 55. Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow color with no head. Weak aroma of bread, citrus and caramel. The taste is bread, caramel, citrus and a spicy finish. Medium bodied. 5000th USA rating!

On tap at Aiken Brewing. A very clear golden pour with tiny white head. Scent is citrus. Taste has a subtle spicey taste. Nice if you enjoy the style

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Golden-yellow with good lacing. Light nose of orange blossom. Medium bodied with round mouth feel. Slight orange on palate as well as wheat. Short, wheat finish. A little different-not bad.

decaturstevo (5407) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Gold with just a hint of red and a foamy off white head and lace. Large brown sugar, sweet maltiness and abv on the nose. Spiced sweet flavor with some fruit, cherries I think. Very nice full bodied beer with good carbonation.

on tap-pours a disappearing white head and gold color. Aroma is sweet medium malt. Taste is sweet medium malt, fruity, some spice hops. Close to a bock/mai bock.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Sample at GABF 2007. Cloudy golden color with a frothy white head that diminishes rapidly when swirled. Mild clove banana ester, perhaps a suggestion of bubble gum. Flavor was somewhat lemony with a small dollop of balancing sweetness. A bit thin in body to be remarkable.

nearbeer (4117) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Draft pint. Golden, mostly clear with medium head that diminished fairly rapidly. Aroma is citrus and spice - maybe coriander. Taste is similar, and very much like a Blue Moon, but smoother. Nice spring and summer refresher, but not enough body or wheat-yeast flavor to suit my Hoegaarden-esque tastes.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2006
Tap. Cherry-berry malt and light hops aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head. Tart cherry malt flavor with a nice flowery hops flavor. More fresh fruit flavor - nice flavor and palate - not too strong. A nice, enjoyable beer.
