UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 On draught at Rattle N Hum (NYC): A soapy finish was all I could taste amongst an ultimately watery feel. Not a fan. #007 on 14062009, DG.

Draft at Rattle N Hum in NYC. Pours clear yellow body with small white head. Aroma is sweet candy - maybe some bubblegum as well. Taste is very smooth, but a bit too watery. If this had more flavor it would be a top notch wit.

imadeadguy (378) - back in NJ!, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Tap at CdC release. Hazy copper/gold pour with fizzy white head. Aromas of oranges, spice, and slight hops. Flavors of citrus and not much else. Lots of carbonation though. Kind of a boring beer.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - SEP 29, 2008
On tap. Although smooth, I found this to be a bit thin on the palate. I know the style is supposed to be a little on the light side and easy to drink, but i found it to be slightly watery. It did have nice balance between citrus notes and spices and a good wheat presence.
