Light yellow color, with hints of green. Little head. Orange and lemon nose - big nose, but very thin taste, weak orange and lemon.

Wonderful citrusy nose - very nice. Hazy yellow color and white sticky head. Light lemony malt body turning to a spicy dry finish. Thin and weak taste, but refreshing. I wanted more body and more spice. Drinkable though.

Head formed very nicely and stayed around for awhile. Hazy straw color with small bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Beer had hint of spices. Finish was smooth. This is a very drinkable beer but not remarkable.

Hazy blond appearance, no head or lacing. Aroma is delicious with spicey notes along with banana & clove esters. Citrusy and zesty. Flavor is well balanced and smooth to drink, best wit bier ever for me. I really enjoyed this one. The mouthfeel lightly sour.

Pale gold pour with little head that is compised of rather large bubbles that stuck around longer than I expected. Wheat aroma comes out pretty strong, reminding me a bit of oatmeal. Small fruit, a bit sour as well. Hops come out a bit more in the flavor. Fruit, citrus mainly. The wheat is still about, but seems to be a bit more muted. A wet (don't know if that makes much sense) feeling palate, and a mellow hop finish. Nice beer. Thanks BierBauch!

WOW~~ had this in a nice corked bottle, Batch No. 5. Poured to a beautiful golden straw color with a perfect white frothy head. the citrus, clove and banana undertones were balanced perfectly. I like this better without dumping the yeast into it -- more like a krystal klar. A tiny bit too carbonated, but it didn't detract too much. Very good overall -- can't wait to have it again

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy straw-yellow with a soft, clean white head that faded to a flat placid surface. Classic aroma of orange citrus, a hint of coriander, fruit peel bitter nose, yeast, and banana/bubble gum. Flavor is full, distinctly spicy, crisp, and tart. Some slight soapiness detracts. But a good wit overall.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch #3 Corked 750ml. Average pure white head on piss gold ale. Suspension of yeast. Thin white head lingers whole glass with equally thin lacing. Was unimpressed upon first tasting. Now I'm convinced this is a damn good beer (maybe due to more yeast in end of bottle?). Very slight aromas of fermentation, champagne, aswell as orange. Taste is sweet at first followed by a hard smack of spice and citrus. There is a slight "doughy" taste (prob. due to all the yeast) closer to the end of the glass. This beer is thrist quenching at first, but becomes rougher towards end of glass. Overall a very complex beer, very different. Worth trying again.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2004 Poured a pale golden color with a small white head and alittle lacing. Aroma of spice, coriander, and orange peel. Orange, some hops and an herb like taste, maybe even alittle ginger as well... Very smooth and refreshing, bubbly mouthfeel.
