I thought this one smelled a bit better than it tasted - nice swet, spicy floral aroma. While the flavor wasn’t bad, it seemed a flinty and harsh. Seemed almost more like an American Wheat with a few Belgian characteristics. But I enjoyed it, for the most part.

Has that familiar sour aroma and a bit of citrus. Palate is wheat, some yeast. Like the look, cloudy and some lasting clingy suds. A serviceable beer.

Cloudy yellow body and sediment floating around the bottom. Thick foamy white head that clings to the edges of the glass. Corriander and yest dominate the wheat nose. Faint undercurrents of bitter orange in the nose. Wheat flavor rushes forward and is promptly followed coriander and again orange on the finish, though the bitter peel character in the nose doesn’t make much of an appearance in the flavor.

Metalhead (632) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Poured a very light straw color. Modest head. Aroma of wheat, citrus,a little coriander. Tastes pretty much the same. Better than BlueMoon but not as good as Hoegaarden. Pretty solid light summer beer.

TomDecapolis (4570) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 23, 2007
pours a hazy golden with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of orange, coriander, some tart wheat and lots of citrus. Flavors of the same a little soapy.

Kevin (2110) - New Mexico, USA - JUL 20, 2007
bottle. poured a very hazed yellow. yeasty nose very estery with a light citrus spice. taste- enjoyable, sweet, banana yeast goodness. very light and was perfect at the end of a long day that involved a mile trek in wet socks. sweet and spice balance well here. i really enjoyed the flavor of this. on a side note i just bet this would be great with a few hundred pounds of raspberry thrown into the fermenter. regardless, this is a very good beer. i expect to drink more of this this summer.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a small frothy white head, somewhat lasting, fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cereal), light hops (citrus, grass), average yeast (dough, earth) with notes of coriander, orange and banana. Light bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity and bitterness.

From a 12 oz. bottle, coded freshness date in the lower right hand corner, another printed freshness date in the lower left, sampled in a pint glass. Cloudy pale yellow appearance with a tight micro bubbly, creamy foam white head, good retention, minimal amount of laced sticking. Smells of earthy, musty yeast, clove and a light coriander, spicy herbs, and fruity wheat maltiness. Good carbonation lends itself to a crisp light bodied mouthfeel, dry spicy, sweet malty taste, a sticky clove on the tongue, coriander, herbs, sour lemon and orange peel, a pinch of white pepper, fruity, bready wheat malts, a nice twang from the malts, an affable drinkability, refreshing on humid July day. So far, this is easily the best seasonal American witbier I’ve tried this summer, I have a few more to try, but I found this offering from Flying Dog to be impressive.
