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.

From the tap: Body is a nice cloudy golden with a little orange. It was served quite cold so the nose was hard to detect. Taste comes off as a mix of citrus, wheat, and a little extra hops. Pretty well balanced and a decent ale overall.

A bit different than your typical wheat. Gold/copper colored, very nice hoppiness, not overpowering at all, but refreshing. Citrus flavor for once is faint, unlike many other wheats. It drinks very easily, and is quite a good change of pace amongst wheat beers! A winner from a great brewery!

Average American wheat... Perfect for people that donít like wheat beers. Almost lager-like in qualities, could pass it up for a Dortmunder/Helles. Malt accent is almost like such. Rather fizzy and weak for an ale. Certainly a hoppier (but not too hoppy) take on a wheat beer. Finishes crisp and clean, but overall mild/medium body and watery texture. Then again, I donít think Iíve ever really had a "good" American wheat. Iíve not been too impressed with any of Kalamazooís beers, and this doesnít change that. Good, but not great. Hmmm; Nice buzzing sensation though.

Big frothy head. Mild citrus,hops and a hint of wheat. Very hazy color like watered down apricot juice. Flavor was nothing special. Crisp wheat,faint citrus with a too dry finish to be thirst quenching.The only thing that gets this as high a score as I gave it was that at least it LOOKED good.
