Tap at Founders Fest 2013. If I did a blind taste test I would guess it was an IPA. A lot of hop character for a wheat beer. Very creamy and delicious.

On tap at Founders Brewery. Hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat, mild pine, light citrus and mild spices. Taste is thin and hoppy with wheat, light citrus and faint bitterness.

Very nice, a hoppy wheat beer basically. The brewer says that wheat beers are too tart, which i would debate, but i just realized that Founders really doesn’t do much wheat beers besides this.

CanIHave4Beers (2908) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Pours a hazy orange color with a small head.

The aroma is spicy and piney with a light sweet floral character.

The flavor is herbally bitter, lightly fruity, and a little bit grainy/doughy, The level of bitterness in this beer is very enjoyable.

Draft to goblet at Shakespeare’s. Looks good; light-brown with a boozy tint and white head. Smells solid; boozy and wheaty with a touch of malt and hops. Tastes solid too; much like it smells. Average on the palate. Good, not great.

Brought a growler home from Founders a few weeks ago. Consumed a few days thereafter. Pours a bright golden with slight haze and a nice white head. Good clingy lacing on the way down. Smell wasn’t as strong as I’d like, with some floral and citrus hops coming through. Taste brings the same bunch, although not in a very intense way. While this strays away from the boring end of the style, it’s not quite as interesting as Gumballhead and similar offerings. Slight wheat dryness. Drinkability is good on what I imagine is a pretty low ABV beer, but not nearly as good as most Founders offerings (which is really more praise for Founders than criticism of this).

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Served on draft at Graydon’s Crossing, Grand Rapids, MI. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a medium creamy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Bready and caramelly aroma with peach and other stone fruits. The taste is bitter hops, bready and nutty notes, light spice and faint fruity notes in the finish. Medium bodied. Very nice wheat beer.

Tmoney99 (10090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Draft. Poured an hazy dark yellow color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2010
On tap at Founders. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, hop oils, and wheat malt. Flavor of hop spices, light floral hops, and citrus. Very hoppy for a wheat beer and pretty tasty too. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]
