On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Cloudy straw colour. Decent, quite authentic estery wheat aroma. Rather too much lemony citrus on the palate with some rather unexpected and slightly harsh bitterness. OK but not a standout.

On tap at brewpub. Pours an opaque pale orange with a short-lasting white head. Smells like orange and cloves. Tastes like orange, bananas, cloves, yeast and bread. Very soft dry finish. Medium bodied, velvety mouthfeel. Very refreshing!

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Yet another disappointing American hefe. Pours from tap somewhat cloudy a tad orangish. Not a lot of aroma off of this one or flavor for that matter. It finishes but not fast enough. Meh!
