3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2004 #200 for me. Pours hazy yellow with lots of floating yeast; pretty much no head after the fizz from the pour goes away in a few seconds. Aroma is very wheaty and citrusy; nothing too out-of-the-ordinary. But the flavor is just plain unusual; awesome hit of citrus fruitiness, but itís not as sharp as the typical lemony citrus flavor; itís more mellow; sort of a more "closed up" flavor than a typical wheat, almost "musky" you might say; touch of banana/clove, vaguely reminiscent of a Belgian, and a slight vanilla/cream taste. Mouthfeel is awesomely full and thick for the style. This is a very cool and unusual beer. I was a bit taken aback from the first sip. Really top-notch wheat beer, and I donít really like wheat beers; probably my favorite thus far.

Pours orange with a creamy white head. Taste is creamy and smooth as well. Citrus taste throughout. Very interesting and distinct from any beer I have ever had. Great stuff.

Pour is a beautiful orange with a foamy white head that quickly dissapears. Appealing aroma and a great flavor. One of my favorite wheats, easily.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 I was surprized to find out this was a wheat ale, the label not giving away any of the ingredients. This has a righteous hopped aroma with a thick red/tan head, a pleasant bitterness followed by a citric aftertaste. No alcohol flavor, just solid refreshment.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 I have had this numerous times in bottles and again on tap. I much prefer the bottled version. I setect a lot fewer oranges than I did a few years ago. On tap. Has a nice medium head on top of the light gold and orange body. The smell is oranges and a little grass. The taste is very refreshing. Tastes of oranges. A great lawnmower beer if I have ever had one.

Very murky yellow/gold body with a fluffy, thick white head. Lemony hops and bready nose. Very nice, sweet flavor. Iím usually not a wheat fan but this is pretty good. Also aquired from a random trade in Coventry last weekend.

On tap. Citrusy orange aroma. Flavor is on the sweet side, nice blend of malt and fruity hops. Medium body, kind of fizzy. Nice summer beer, more character than your typical American wheat.
