This is the first wheat beer I actually like... of course, I haven’t had any of the really good wheat’s, but that’s not the point... the point is, that this is one incredibly balanced wheat. Probably because it doesn’t just taste like lemons... it has the wonderful yeasty peppermint, grapefruit rind flavor that I enjoy and plenty of spices to go around. Little to no lemon flavor and thank god for that... I mean really.

I tried this beer on two separate occasions, and it is overated for a wheat beer. There are lots of better ones available.

Cloudy golden color w/ a soft aroma wheat, yeast, citrus, and cloves. The flavor was similar (kinda heavier on the wheat than the others) but it also had a lot of water to it. Soft, easy finish that was very easy on the palate. An ok German Wheat. The best beer at the restaurant I was at, but then again it was up against Coors and Bud.

I got this stuff in a variety 3-pack with a glass at the Living Earth in Worcester. A cloudy golden color with a sweet smell. The taste is spicy/fruity, typical wheat flavor. Fairly light and very refreshing with little to no bitterness. Overall much better than the Blue Moon as it does not have the soapy taste and I would purchase it again.

Hazy golden color that is characteristic of this style. Citrusy aroma with a pretty good dose of clove spiciness too. Very smooth and not too sweet.

Nice wheat beer, almost identitical to Paulaner Hefeweizen with all the elements of citrus, yeast and bananas. Highly recommended.
