COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.

aggressively carbonated main drawback offset by very peachy aroma and some peach in taste. Orange appearance. Made worth trying by single bottle allotment at WIld Oats in Cleveland. Malt, yeast and wheat there. More hops please.

Hazy yellow pour with medium white head. Nose is sweet, with light fruits popping into the picture, as well as honey and some mild hop. Flavor is more interesting than anticipated, but still boring charting this brew as a mediocre wheat.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Was trying to figure out the style of this one, rather surprised itís American Wheat. Bright, vaguely hazy orange. Nose spicy, lots of orange, candy sugar, herbal. Flavor creamy, toasty, yeasty, very honey-sweet. Very fruity, apricot and apple. Bit thick and heavy for a wheat. Interesting stuff, significantly more than I would have expected.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Peach gold color with a quite opaque look. Aroma is malty and somewhat herbal, slightly sharp. Very oaken, piney flavor with lots of caramel malt and wheat showing through. Rather cloying finish, perhaps just a bit too much of that honey is used. Overall this seems more like a heavier Fraoch Heather Ale than a summer festival ale, but I still recommend trying it if you come across it.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2005
out of a keg from the brewery for the 4th. This was a decent brew. Nothing too extremely exciting. A good wheat beer though. Some honey and lemon, banana, and some creamy yeasty flavors. great summer beer just not much imagination.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2005
On tap at the brewery. Beautiful hazy golden yellow in color. Aroma is muted, with some lemons, honey, banana and a touch of cloves. Hits the palate and is sweet and yeasty. Flavors revolve around lemon-banana smoothie qualities, and perhaps some KFC biscuits topped with honey. Good creamy palate with a hop interjection thatís a touch off on the backend.

Darkover (1532) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Copper color with a beige head. Aroma of some caramel and burnt malt. Sweet caramel and malt flavor. Finish is a little sour and hoppy.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Sweet aroma of honey, light caramel, bright fruitiness, and floral hops. Slightly hazy golden color, decent white head. Sweet honey and light caramel flavor, just enough hop flavor and bitterness to provide balance. Medium body. A really nice summer beer, more going on than in a typical American wheat.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2005
Pours a foamy white head, big fruity,sweet aroma. Head lingers throughout. Firsy tastes are vinegar and weeds. A bad/old bottle(?). A much more pleasant malt taste follows, but itís hard to lose that bad lactobaccillus taste.. Pretty bad.

Tmoney99 (12736) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy golden amber with small white head. Aroma of citrus and toffee. Medium body with sweet finish. Flavor was full with citrus and wheat sweet. Good American Wheat.
