VALIS (228) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Thatís not a terribly appetizing name there! Nor is it really an appetizing beer. Very dull straw color, smells and tastes of apple juice, white grape, cider; more sweetness than yeast. Also thin and watery for a wheat beer with too much carbonation. Got it for a buck fiddy in the sale bin.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Draft at Stags Head. Pour pale yellow with little head. Aroma is citrus and banana. Taste is citrusy and floral but fairly mild. Clean finish, an easy drinking beer.

Beer tastes nothing like its name - light, refreshing, and a little sweet with a citrus aftertaste. Aroma has strong citrus hints, and its appearance is like a typical wheat beer (think Hacker Pschorr). Taste is excellent and hits strong upon first taste. My only complaint is that the taste fades quickly, leaving with a somewhat bitter citrus-like aftertaste. Pretty good effort.

Smells sweet and a bit fruity. Hazy yellow. Fruity banana like taste. Very carbonated. Very refreshing and crisp. I could drink this all day.

Hazy pale gold beer, tidy white head. Light semi dry and crisp palate. Light seltzer minerals, citrus and banana! Dry finish. Just enough flavour to keep it from being insipid. Needs to be dialled up several notches!

superspak (2472) - Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2012
12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, best before 1/25/2013. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, banana, clove, wheat, pear, pepper, light bubblegum, earth, grass, floral, and yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance. Taste of lemon, wheat, banana, clove, floral, grass, orange zest, earth, coriander, light bubblegum, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of lemon, banana, wheat clove, light pepper, earth, grass, floral, light bubblegum, and coriander. Nice balance and complexity of flavors; a bit more watered down than I expected; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with nearly zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice wheat ale. Nice amount of hefeweizen flavor complexity and balance; and extremely smooth to drink. Definitely an enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with almost no head. Aroma of wheat, cloce and banana. Taste is clove, banana and wheat. Light bodied with a thin yet sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad.

rbrazell (1593) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Draft at Fermentation. Hazy pale golden pour with a rocky white head. Nose is super grainy, with light phenols and esters. Bubbly, slightly sweet and grainy body with more yeast accents. Itís ok.

Danyel (592) - Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle. Light yellow, white head. Smells yeasty, doughy, buttery. Tastes crisp, light, citrus, lemon, grass, dough, a tad woody. Boring. No finish. Bleh.
