BBB63 (6119) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Wow, I get to be first to rate a bottled beer! Anyway, it has a clear goledn hue with a fading head and little lace. The aroma hints of perfume and floral hops, corriander, cardamom, and lemon. The taste is better than the smell. Hints of lemon, orange, honeydew, spice and wheat. The finish is short and clean. The mouthfeel is fizzy, lively, and watery. Okay brew, nothing outstanding.

Braudog (5866) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Medium haziness in this yellow beer with a thin head. Strong corn-starchy aroma, like Coors light. Vaguely yeasty character carries this, rescuing it from its poor draw on the nose. But it’s still flat and boring.

Cornfield (5512) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 A disappointment. This poured an orange/amber color with the faintest trace of a white head. It smells like oranges and grass. It’s a thick drink that tastes mainly like weakly carbonated orange soda. What am I to do with the other five bottles?

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle: Pours a hazy yellow blond color, thick white head with stick lacing. Nose of very light orange and coriander, some really pale malts and needs some wheat. A bit too much like mandarin extract with the coriander notes. The flavor isn’t bad, a bit lacking in body. I like the sticky starches from some wheat to be sticking to my lips. Finishes average. Surprising for Huber.

This wit pours a light orange gold color from a 120z bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is lightly malty, citrusy (orange and lemons) and a touch grassy. A light to medium bodied wit. Malts are grassy and citrusy. Hops are slightly spicy. Spices are mild; coriander and orange peel predominating. Light and refreshing. Crisp and clean but a little watery. Nice lawnmower beer. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly citrusy.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Flanagan’s Liquors in Appleton, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and thin white ring. Aroma of light bready malt, a touch of banana, oranges and some dry yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied, well carbonated with flavors of multi-grain malt, some orange zest and earthy spices. Finish is slightly sweet with a light orange zest aftertaste that quickly disappears.

heemer77 (5105) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Cloudy, light gold colored body. The aroma is over ripe oranges and some light clove. There is also a hint of banana and perfume. The taste has some light oranges and a tiny bit of corriander spice. A little to much citrus, even for the style. Otherwise, an alright beer.

EithCubes (5052) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle. Aroma is a bit grainy and has an overdone amount of coriander. Sickly pale yellow body with a short white head. Crisp and lemony taste, smooth and yeasty with a grainy, biscuity aftertaste. A good deal of malt and a creamy, medium body. One-dimensional but still enjoyable - the surviving favorable wit character does win out over the stale Berghoff mainstays. Easily the best of the eight brands I’ve had from this brewer.

Strykzone (5038) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2005
As wheat beers go this is not a memorable one. However, I love that style of beer and probably score it a little higher than it deserves. It had all the characterics of a wheat, slightly orange color, light white foam, hints of orange in the flavor and aroma, etc. There was nothing to not like about this beer but it could have used a few more posistives. Some zing might have helped. It was bought on the close-out table so price was hard to beat. At 75 cents it was a bargain.

thedm (4963) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 26, 2005
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized of unnoted length white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was slightly hazy and light orange brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild astringent malt . Its mouth feel is initially tingly bubbly with a lingering bubbly palate and a aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild malt hop wheat bread and dough notes.
