Sammy (8529) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2006
Thanks to FlyingBison for coming through on this. Like an American pale wheat that has a sourness, only more aggressive wheat and carbonation. This is not a smooth hefeweizen

Dogbrick (7898) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2002
Hazy gold color with a thin white head. Slight citrus aroma. A little better than the average German Wheat (I thought it was on the same level as Weihenstephaner) but I am still not a big fan of the style. It is too wheaty/citrusy for my tastes.

Bottle courtesy of JPDIPSO who plucked it from my wishlist into a trade. Why did I think this was from Washington DC? Oh well. Fairly clear golden body, with a white head that starts out well but diminishes quickly. Sweet fruity aroma has a belgian yeast quality to it. Sweet flavour with more muted fruit and malt. Some hops in the finish. More ’belgianness’ in the aftertaste. Average palate. Decent beer, but not much of weizen. Doesn’t seem to achieve the status described in other peoples ratings. Durf.
