Draught from Tiger. Slightly cloudy yellow pour. Nice head. Grainy but nice bananas esthers and a hop finish. One of the better ones of the style Ive ever had.

Draft at blind tiger during the founders event. Pours a deep, cloudy golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is light wheat, straightforward. Mouthfeel medium and creamy with notes of wheat and a nice clean hop finish.

Draught@Founders Brewer Night of The Pony Bar, NYC
Hazy orange color, good white head. Crisp citrusy-orange aroma, maybe some spices too. Light to medium-bodied. Crisp carbonation. Fruity-wheaty flavor, orange and coriander. Good thirstquencher.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Hazy light golden color. Light yeast and spice in the nose with hints of fresh fruit. The body is spritzy with a lightly roasted hoppiness. Finishes rather yeasty and quite bland. More of an American Wheat in my opinion.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2004
On tap at Founders. A tan-colored wheat with a thin, creamy off-white head. Tangy aroma with a touch of banana. Flavor was tangy with banana esters in the background. I agree with AustinMilbarge that this was served too cold for flavors to develop well. Nothing too exciting here.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2004
On tap in GR: Not quite the right color I was expecting, a little more coppery/amber than the typical wheat. Served way too cold, but when you're sitting around shooting the shit for two hours it warms up. Fair amount of carbonation. A middle of the road winter wheat. Not bad, but not fantastic.
