17th August 2008. Clear amber beer. A wheat beer but feels like a lager. The lime is pretty subtle and really only noticeable in the aftertaste. Refreshing and subtle.

(Bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, caramel, grain, and light citrus. Flavor of hops (grass, citrus), wheat, and caramel malt.

bhensonb (11491) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Aroma of light citrus and yeast/spice? Coppery amber color with a decent, lasting white head. Thin to medium body with mild, sort of chewy, carbonation. The flavor is wheat, lime indeed, and it seems some spice. The finish is a bit papery, but not all that bad, and the citrus helps out. Pretty refreshing.

rlgk (11429) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle. Yellow color, rather small white head. Way to thin aroma. Flavor is pretty much the same. Citrus and some hops, but this is really not a wheat beer to me. At leats not a good one...

Tmoney99 (11065) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Bottle from Krogers. Poured a hazy amber with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Light sweet citrus aroma. Light body with soft carbonation. Light bittersweet citrus flavor with a light bitter finish. Worth trying once.

Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2010
A golden wheat ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a lightly fruity and esters aroma, solventy. In mouth, a chalky boring wheat...really boring. Tasted at CNY brewfest, Feb. 6 2010.

Ratman197 (10192) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Bottle poured a clear amber with a large lasting ivory head. Aromas of wheat, light yeast and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat and lime with a crisp clean finish.

hopscotch (9490) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Bottle… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Great retention. Grainy, fruity aroma provides subtle notes of pale grains, caramel/crystal malts and a touch of lime. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Well-balanced and technically nice, but uninspiring; pulling up just shy of nondescript. Short, crisp, clean finish. Refreshing, at least.
