Pours hazy yellowish... Hops, citrus, and some straw in the nose. Very smooth with a strong clove and yeast finish. Refreshing and different.

Hazy golden. Lightly yeasty, touch phenolic in the aroma, some tartness. Full bodied, with some sticky on the tongue wheatiness. Some clovey hefe-flavors. Crisp and refreshing, without being overly interesting.

A birthday gift from my roomate. Hmm, grapefruit juice! Sweet malt and cassis, a little fruit. Really weak aroma. Bests Oberon.

The aroma is filled with wheat and it has a sort of cloudy light amber color. The tiny slightly off-white head diminishes after the first few sips. The taste is a ginger spice with some kind of banana after taste. Overarll I like this beer except for the 4.5 alcohol %, it’s better tasting than Oberon but definitely a Sunday beer.

Yellow colour with some murkyness. Lots of wheat in the aroma, but you can get some citrus notes as well as a bit of fruit. It was a bit chewy. Wheat, citrus, and yeast in the taste. Not a bad bottle as i watch the first snowfall of the year.

Cloudy, hazy and very orange with little or no head. Very wheaty aroma along with a citrus and spice presence. Fresh and clean in the mouth, nice light wheat and malt taste along with a yeast presence and some interesting spice. It’s slightly sour but finishes nicely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks hazzy pale yellow with a tint of green. Lots of bubbles add to what I wouldn’t have called a great looking beer (bumped it up a point as a result). Yeasty, belgian aroma with hay or some other type of grassys grain. Taste was yeasty and included bananna, grassyness, and spice (clover or some such thing). For a winter drink it was not what I expected but it was enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellowish cloudy pour with a little head and no lacing. A yeasty overtone with the spicing and general overtones of the typical Belgian White. Kind of a sticky after taste to it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with no head. Aroma is very sweet and bready. Flavor is cloves, yeast and spice. You do get some of the grapefruit and banana others have described. Quite thin and watery in the end thought, could use a bit more yeast. Quite flavorful but nothing to put this one over the top.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy yellow with light whitish head. Nose is sweet and strawlike. Very citrusy with notes of corriander. Flavor is of grapefruit, clove and banana esters. There are some yeasty flavors reminescent of classic German Hefeweizen. Good beer.
