Creamy, yeasty, banana, and light spice. Creamy mouthfeel with citrus, vanilla and banana flavors. Finish is long enough to make this a great summer session beer!

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.

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.
