mirky yellow sediment, basically no head retention, great yeasty aroma, bready flavor, sweet bitter finish, really good mouthfeel for the first few seconds, and then it like melts into water... or something.

Thanks to BBB63 for this. Pours turbid straw colored with a creamy white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, cloves, and hopcit. Tastes fruity, with wheat, yeast, clove, and some orange in the finish. Medium palate with a vibrant carbonation, acidic fruit burst, and creeping musty yeast esters at end palate.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Bottle pours a cloudy pale yellow, mediocre frothy white head, light lacing, with very light carbonation.   Yeasty/bready aroma, hints of corriander and lemon.   Quite yeasty on the tongue, light corriander but lots of lemon and light fruit.   Medium body with an mild mouthfeel.   Lingering spices, with a clean finish.   Not my idea of a Winter brew, but decent nonetheless.   Thanks goes out to MrFacto for the trade!

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2004
An interesting blending of wheat styles, this poured a hazy straw color with a foamy white head that vanished in a flash. Nice banana & grass/grain aroma with a touch of spicy sweetness. Soft mouthfeel. Good spices, banana, vanilla, mild malt flavors. A good drink, but it seems more suited to humid summer weather.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 Pours a hazy straw like color. The aroma is sweet accompanied by lemons, orange, spice, and yeast. Light bodied with spice and citrus flavors dominating, and an underlying presence of yeast and hops. The finish is a mild bitterness. This one reminds me more of summer. However, it is a welcome change from many of those darker, heavier, spiced winter concoctions.

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Very hazy pastel orangey body with a smallish white head. Aroma is yeasty with a touch of citrusy lemon or orange peel? Smells like a cross between a hefe and a tripel. Flavour reminds me a bit of Black Oak Saison in a way that makes me wonder if its the same yeast strain. Flavour is sweet with a tart wheaty finish. Tastes like it has more alcohol than it does. Thanks for sharing this rudolf.

on tap at Crane Alley, Urbana, IL / slightly hazy golden yellow body with small frothy white head. this is very smooth, and cremey. slightly peppery--spice, and lemony. i really liked this. it washed my lunch down quite well.

walleye (1067) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2004
from the bottle. poured a hazy straw with a white head that didn’t last long. aroma bread yeast, citrus, sour orange, wheat, and straw. flavor hops, straw, wheat, lemon, bitter. this should not be a winter beer. I think it would be better suited for the summer standing at the bbq griling some steak.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2004
bottle. pours a slightly cloudy translucent yellow with a decent head that disappeared almost immediately. very strong citrus, wheat & straw flavors. might have made a better impression as a summertime drink on a hot day, but not as a winter ale

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