Aroma is like apple and other citrusy smells. Head is very thick and lingers . Color is a cloudy, light honey appearance. Taste is where this brew really excels. It is light and refreshing. Something to enjoy outside on a warm summer evening. Light carbonation hits the front of the tongue, whereas the citrusy sweetness is revealed in the finish, and stays a short while. Warning to hop fans. There is no hop ’bite’ here. It is smooth and light. A very drinkable beer. I like this one.

Yuck. This was some nasty stuff. Tasted like it was mechanically carbonated to me. There was very little else to like, either, without much beer flavor but no real spice or herbal flavors either. Stay away.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2005
Bottle - on a beautiful Sprin Night at RFK Stadium watching a ball game. No beer can ask for a better environment to be sampled at... Looked good, smelled very nice - certainly a step up from the other ballpark swill on offer. But this is way too carbonated - the acrid bubbles overwhelm whatever subtleties are in this beer. An underwhelming flavour, and so much carbonation that a second was out of the question.

GuidoMerkens (5) - USA - APR 29, 2005 does not count
Great warm weather beer, but nice all around. Could almost be an aperitif. Fruity, a little spice, smooth as can be.

A delicious and refreshing brew with a spicy, fruity aroma. Great on a hot summer’s evening at dinnertime. Unlike many beers, this can actually be drunk for taste.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2005
Aromas of the Hop and Yeast variety. Grass and trees almost like most back yards. Cloudy yellow body with average head that disipated to a thin layer over top of beer. Flavor of spice and fruit. The fruit flavor made this beer for me because otherwise the heavy spice would of not done the palate well. Good Beer.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2005
Draft. Little head and cloudy gold. Aroma is a bit yeasty. Flavor is good, mildly spicy. Bubbles were a bit big and feel was off some. Need to rate with paper in front of me next time.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2005
Poured cloudy straw yellow with a good head and lacing. Aroma of yeast and malt. Flavor is crisp with a light malt and yeast finish. Not bad for a corner store beer.

On tap.. Light golden color with a medium head. Aroma was a bit of yeast and some fruitiness. Flavor was mild yeast and a bit of floral and fruitiness and a bit of wheat. Refreshing beer..

This golden wheat beer pours with a short head that dissipates quickly. The hoppy flavor is actually very pleasant, with a hint of spice and orange. In my opinion, this beer is underrated.
