Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 16, 2005
12 oz bottle. Cloudy dark yellow with a small head that settled into just a thin sheet. Aroma is bready, estery and malty. Taste is smooth but had a medicinal thing going on. Some lemon tartness and some peppery spice but subtle.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2005
Perfectly clear golden body with a thin white head, lots of carbonation. Estery banana aroma tempered by potpourri. Big yeasty/spice flavor. Tastes like a normal hefeweizen with slightly metallic coriander thrown in. Eh.

zathrus13 (1728) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2005
Pours cloudy yelloq/gold. Aromas are what you’d expect, yeast, spice, and lemon. Flavor is a little flat, with citrus and spice dominating. Not one of Bells better beers.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Aroma of wheat, citrus and spice, hazy golden/yellow, pours a large white head, leaves some pretty lace. Light wheat flavour, hint of spice and lemon. Light bodied, easy drinking, fair. Thanks wohlfs.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2005
Thin white head, yellow-amber body. Nose is light sourish banana with wheat and cloves. Flavor is that, plus it brings some citrusy hop presence; a surprise. Makes it more interesting.

MrBunn (2523) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 Bottle. Pours a straw-ish gold color with light haze from wheat. Head is minimal and quickly disappeared. Aroma is strong of grain with some fruit/floral undertones that I’m finding hard to describe. Wheat dominates taste, but there are some citrus flavors and coriander/clove spices that come into play as well. Finish is sweet and spicy. Much more airy and refreshing than many wheat beers, while still having a pretty pronounced flavor to it. I think this has gotten better for 2008.

Bottle. Pours golden yellow. Light aroma. More citrus flavors as the beer warms.

csbosox (1225) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle straight from my cellar @ 52°. Tasted in NB worthy glass. Tons of yeast in the bottom of the glass that declines to move. Medium golden color with a light white head and steady streams of tiny bubbles rises up. The aroma is wheat and, to a lesser extent, yeast, there are also hints of lemon and maybe green apple? What ever the fruit smell is, it has a tartness to it. This is about as far removed from a typical wheat beer as you could get, while still being a wheat beer. The mouthfeel was the first apparent difference; this beer has a weight and chewability that is not found in the refreshing summer wheat beers. The taste is also not immediately apparent as a wheat beer, initially the flavor is yeasty, bready, and spicy then it morphs into the wheat flavor that ends with a bit of spiciness. This is actually more what I expected the Hoegaarden to taste like after hearing so much about it. Very nice indeed.

radiomgb (2438) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2005
Bottle. Hazy golden in colour. Aroma was of lemon citrus, yeasty, light hops and some spices. Flavour was of citrus (lemons and oranges), some pears, yeasty with some spices near the back. Medium body, high carbonation. Finishes with a medium spicy bitterness.
