3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had tried this on the first hot night of summer, it hit the spot but failed to overcome the other Michigan summer wheats, Oberon, Weizenbier & Zoomer. The appearance was pretty good, rich orange/yellow with some good sediment. Nothing really jumps out of the aroma. The flavor is pretty malty at first the gets a little sweeter with hints of banana and orange. Then it has this strange tart cherry aftertaste that didn't exactly leave me thirsting for the next sip. All in all not bad but not that good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Typical on the pour (cloudy yellow-orange), with a hint of orange peel in the aroma. Unfortunately, the flavor was dominated by a bitter tang that luckily subsided as the beer warmed. I'll work this into the "palate" rating instead of docking the flavor, which finished smooth and strong. Whitsun seems like a hybrid witbier/American Wheat.

Very refreshing and smooth! The sweet falvor combined with the aroma hops is a definite winner. Great beer for a hot summer day.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer poured a cloudy amber gold color and formed a nice foamy white head that left some nice lace as it subsided. A medium amount of carbonation is present. A slight aroma of hops and grain/bread. A flavor of hops, malt, lightly of caramel and some cirtus. The finish was light with a touch of sweetness to it. I agree that this is not really a Belgian Wit or a German Wheat. It is something sort of in the middle. A good beer, but kind of hard to place what style it is trying to be.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super Bowl beer!
Not much time to talk, but...
The nose holds grapefruit and lime.
The color is a murky peach.
Malty, fuzzy and citrus fruit and honey flavors.
Medium to full-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation.
Short, lightly sweet, lightly pungent finish with clover honey at the wee end. Very nice wheat beer!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really sweet and fruity. Not like a wheat beer should be. However, not bad once I got over the surprise.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 Translucent orange. Short-lived foam, but densely bubbled. Lovely nose of cottony Ringwood and banana bread. Tight, but brisk, carbonation. Balanced blend of earthy Ringwood and fresh toasted malt husks. Substantial earthy hop bitterness. Rounded, fruity yeast finish with an accomapaniment of starchy wheat and woody dryness. Greatly improved upon previous versions.

I like this beer a lot. Granted it’s rather strange, with the richer honey and butter flavours filling out a nice spare wheat profile.
