UPDATED: AUG 21, 2012 8/10/12. On tap at the GTMW pre-party. Hazy golden orange pour with a nice khaki head. Big citrus and cream in the aroma with light spices. Nice orange flavor with bits if cream and spice. Tasty and refreshing!

Draft to pint at Eccentric Cafe. Looks okay; a transparent light-copper with thin white lacing. Smells mildly wheaty, and malty. Tastes solid; like Oberon on steroids with a bit of a bite. Mouthfeel is average. Not bad.

Tmoney99 (10584) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Draft. Poured an dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus honey and wheat aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy lemon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

Tap at Brewhaven. Biscuity wheat malt and sweet fruity (banana?) aroma. Cloudy golden with a moderate white head, creamy lacing. Bready wheat malt, lightly sweet, spicy grassy bitter flavor. Medium creamy body.

Damico (2562) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Pours golden orange with a sandy white head. The aroma is light sweet and a bit malty. The flavor is sweet and a bit syrupy, perhaps from the honey. Just right on a medium body, but lost the coriander unfortunately.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2012
Funky yeast aroma. Lots of wheat, blood orange, honeyish. Great spicy finish, the bitterness seems higher than the IBU would indicate. Yellow bodied. It grows on me as regards drinkability. A rare bottle, so thanks for sharing Johnsense.

Amber pour, a figer of head. malty aroma with blood orange, spices. Corriander, honey, blood orange, malty, caremel taste - very complex. Peppery, warming spices. medium bodied. Fairly easy drinking. Good lacing and not a hint of alcohol. Spicy aftertaste. Quite good.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle, caged and corked, delivered by a buddy from the brewery. Opens with a nice pop, and pours with a great pillowy cushion of white foam. Clear and still, golden with an orange tinge. The aroma is subtle, with a hint of orange zest. The beer drinks with a delightful palate, and is laden with a mellow but flavorful flourish ... lightly laced with herbal spice, yeast and garden flowers. (#4514, 3/4/2012)

From notes. First reviewed 7/6/2010. On tap at the Eccentric Cafe in a pint glass. The color is a hazy dark golden orange with a 2 cm white head. Reasonable retention, mostly just a ring of carbonation. Nice, replenishing carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. Spicy, honey wheat in the nose. Nice smooth floral and citrus hoppiness. Soft, but complex aroma. Strong and spicy wheat taste, with some full honey and malty sweetness. Spicy yeast really gives the middle some excitement. Floral and citrus hops finish the flavor out. Very pleasant and rounded. The mouthfeel is slightly crisp and a little bit dry. Tight, medium carbonation and a little bit oily at the end. The yeast contributes a little bit of grainy feel as well. This is much better than most pale wheats I drink. The flavor rises above the normal bounds of the style, and I enjoy the extra complexity. Even at 7.5%, the alcohol is not noticeable, and this is a great summer ale.

Pour is a slight golden color with a small off white head. Nose is of citrus and some hoppy notes as well with a bit of barnyard in there in a sense. Taste is minimal hop flavor with some light fruit notes as well as some wheaty characters.
