It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of oranges, a little malt and wheat. The taste was of oranges and some wheat. A very decent wheat ale.

Draft at brewpub. Orange with a creamy off-white head that had a thin layer lasting and left good lace. Big hoppy aroma and flavor with a slight wheat background. Medium body and medium bitterness. Would never guess this was a wheat ale.

Tasted 7/16/10. Pint from the Brewpub. Hazy with a mucky, murky brown hue. No head. Medium to full bodied and quite nice. Grassy and raw bitter hops on top of a mild wheat base. Solid wheat character and the hops only accentuate. Tasty!

Cask at the brewery, served in a snifter. Pours a dull, hazy orange with no head or visible carbonation. What youd expect a cask wheat to look like, just not as bright. Wheat, apricot, citrus, straw, grains, and Amarillo hops. Both the aroma and flavor have a really hard to place note that reminds me of something chemical, maybe rubber. Without that, this would have been so much nicer for me. I dont know what it was. Medium-bodied, with no carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel that is once again held back by that odd note. Im interested to try this without the cask treatment to see what its normally like.

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Arrived a cloudy, orange color with a low white head. Aroma has an orange citrus note with some sweet malt and a light wheat sourness. Flavor has a strong, orange citrus throughout the entire tasting, light grassy leafy end with some sour wheat notes at the end. Moderate body, with a smooth texture and some decent lacing left around. Overall pretty good but the balance for the styling is a bit off as it is favored pretty heavily toward an orange citrus note.

vyvvy (5886) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Pours hazy darker orange with a white head. The aroma has musty husky wheat, light fruitiness and only minor hops. Medium husky body that is quite full bodied for the style. The flavor starts with husky astringent wheatiness and the finish has a bitterness from the hops and some dry grapefruit notes. A respectable variation of the wheat ale style.
