DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2002
Orangebrown, thin white head, hazy. Not much wheat for a wheat beer, fruity.

omhper (19985) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2002
Orange coloured, hazy. Clean and dry with some lemon and some vanilla. Unusually bitter finish for a wheat beer.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2002
Cloudy light golden with some floaty stuff. Somewhat tart, hints of apple, slight hop finish. Overall, quite unspectacular.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2002
Light, wheaty, hint of lemon. Murky appearance. Overall a lightly crisp wheat, not spectacular though given the previous beers I might just have ílostí my palate.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 23, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 RateBeer Summer (Toronto) '02: Deep hazy orange color with lots of large chunks, spicy aroma, fizzy mouthfeel. Has a nice depth to it compared to most one-dimensional Summer Wheats.

Shakira. Definitely the best wheat beer that Iíve tasted - and I donít prefer wheat beers. But this wheat has more to chew on that most. Strong flavors and spicy undercurrent.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2002
A very spicy affair, reminiscent of a Bellís Oberon mixed with ground black pepper. One of the more íbiteyí wits Iíve had in awhile. This beerís courtesy of PsychProf, who is known to love a good wit. The quality is evident, even if the beerís not quite my thing. Thereís maybe a hint of sourness under all the spice.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2002
Very enjoyable. The bottle I drank yesterday had a nice crisp spiciness and subtle fruit notes that I really liked. Well worth drinking, especially in the summer heat.

joet (2228) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 17, 2002
A complex of perfumey, nectarines and some spice component before itís down the hatch. Surprisingly light bodied but with coriander/cumin. More citrus as it warms. Now itís turned into a tripel -- the spice and citric element combined with the color. Itís undeniable. Still a bit light bodied to get seriously into. If youíre having fun in the sun and donít mind a thrist quencher that provides a bender -- this ones for you. Truly delicious.

Very Flavorful and spicy. Nice citrus flavor along with a peppery edge.
