3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle from Greens - Buford, Atlanta. Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a large frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus, wheat, caramel, floral hops. The taste is tart fruits, citrus, stone fruits, wheat, caramel, hoppy finish. Medium bodied, just the faintest hint of booze. You gotta let this one warm up quite a bit, but it’s solid.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mind blowing, decadent syrupy bubblegum and bananas explode onto the palate. Carbonation is tongue tingling with a strong presence of apple and orange peel bitterness to round of this smooth finish.

On draught at the Oregon Public House. Clear full golden color. Aroma of sweet caramel candy and malty wheat. Taste is sweet citrus hops, pitted fruit, and dark caramel. For the amount of alcohol present, smooth and easy to drink.

750ml bottle, thanks to Alicia M. for brining this back for me. Shared at Natifest 2013. Mostly clear orange yellow color. Thin off-white head. Couple loose bits of lace. CItrusy, lightly tart taste. Seems like this has gone sour to me, but in a good way. Grainy, citrusy aroma. Smooth, kind of crisp, lightly soft texture. Moderate carbonation. More dry finish. Seems very sour to me for a wheat wine, but I really enjoyed it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle to taster (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good for the style; a slightly hazy golden orange with white lacing. Smells spicy and yeasty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid, but forgettable.

Bomber. Brown pour with decent head but little retention. Nose is sweet with caramel, vanilla, and a hint of orange.. Taste follows the nose with a tad of oxidation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Heavy wheat aroma with tropical fruit notes and some hops. Pours cloudy golden colored with a large white head. Tastes a lot like a Belgian. Strong wheat flavors with tropical fruits notes hide the high alcohol content. Long, dry finish with a hint of oakiness.
