Not as much head as a lot of a head as I was expecting, but it does have a nice dark apricot color. The first aroma and flavor that you pick up is apricot. A good bit of it. Thatís followed by the expected wheaty and malty flavors that start to dominate towards the middle of the glass. Some citric crispness is present througout. Very little bitterness or hop characteristics are present. This is an awesome wheat beer. Just so everyone knows, Hennes is a great big bastard. He gives me this stuff (and an Expedition Stout) and expects me not to get jealous of him being able to have easy access to this stuff.

This pours from the conditioned bottle (be sure to decant while pouring) a hazy pale honey. The large creamy white head has good lacing and is mostly lasting. The nose softens quickly, but is initially toasted cereal, flowers, citrus, fruit (apple, pear, and date) and earth. The flowery flavor is very balanced with a decent finish. The palate is light, dry and lively, and finishes clean. Refreshing.

Very nice aroma, malty, with a decent flavor. A bit of bitterness balances out the hint of spice. Citrus aroma.

Not a huge fan of this beer. Itís a decent wheat beer with nice citrus and wheat tones to it, but it doesnít live up the hype I get for it. I go to school and everyone says this is the best beer ever. Stick with Arcadiaís Witsun.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 Bright ,thick, cloudy yellow with a medium head (off tap). Nose is wheat, passion fruit, lighter citrus, maybe papaya. Pleasure on the palate, super refreshing, perfect amount of carbonation. Taste begins with strong wheat and bready notes and bursts into citrus and light tropical fruit flavors with slight alcohol presence in the abrupt saaz hop end. From the big sun tapper, it is a perfect refresher and can go head to head with the best American saisons and the lighter American wheat ales!

An intersting cloudy yellow color; Thick to medium head with large buubles; Nose is nothing but YEAST. I canít put my finger on this one but I really like it. Nice spiciness reminecent of a saison. Very bready as well. Wonderful mouthfeel- almost grainy. Thanks Proc for a new favorite.
