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.

Poured with a fairly dark gold and orange body. The head was slightly off white. I could see yeast in the bottle, but none came out. The aroma was apple cobbler along with some caramel. The taste was tart with some light lemons and a little bit of toffee. Actually, this is a decent American wheat that is not like any other I have had. It got more tart as I went through the glass.

Amber in color, clear, with a small white head that is mostly diminishing. Caramel/toffee aroma - is this a wheat beer? Mildly sweet, brown sugar flavor, some light toast, but sweetness is bordering on cloying. Possibly a very old bottle, but with no datestamp, how am I to know?

Opaque Yellow/Orange Coloring with White Skin. Pungent Dry Citrus/Wheat. Seemed a Bit Stale...Bottle Probably Didnít Fare Well..but It Still Has Hints that it Could be a Potentially Refreshing Summer Brew.

The aroma is lightly fruity. Whitsun pours a cloudy yellow with a large, long lasting, frothy, white head. The flavor is somewhat fruity sweet with a light bitter finish.

Hazy gold color with a medium head. Holy corriander! That spice makes a head on appearance in the aroma and taste. More orange flavor, but something like rotten wheat finished it out. An unfortunate end.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with Sully, thanks Mike) Massive carbonation release when opening the bottle, a glass full of very bubbly head, and dozens of steady streams of quickly-moving carbonation bubbles, so this is going to take awhile to settle down. Light orange in color and fully cloudy, I canít believe how long this show is lasting, will the bubbles ever subside? At least they are doing a great job of mixing in the final few yeasty drops from the bottle. Well, the beer smells more like a witbier than an American wheat, but itís not exactly a coriander smell either. It smells lightly sweet, fairly herbal, and somewhat floral. The flavor tastes similar to a witbier as well, some orange citrus perhaps, rather herbal, a little like coriander, but not spicy per se. Surprising for a wheat beer, but Iím also picking up a fair amount of sweet, caramely maltiness in the background. Nevertheless, the herbal character is easily the most prominent aspect of the flavor. Body is medium (or maybe just slightly less than medium), so itís heavier than just about every American wheat Iíve tried. Overall, itís an interesting take on the style, and I certainly welcome the variation from what is normally a boring and unpleasant beer style, but in the end, itís not really grabbing me either.

Sweet malty aroma. Orange. Very light banana flavor, as well as heather. I taste no hops at all. Some yeast. A full bodied American wheat, and one of the few worth trying.

Sammy (11248) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2005
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.
