COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Style Wheat is as refreshing as a beer can be. Try topping it with a wedge of citrus to complement its aromatic Cascade hops and its hints of orange and coriander. Light and crisp, it's just what you need to keep cool during strenuous Northwest days spent hiking, boating or just plain basking.

Pours clear amber with a modest white head which beats a rapid retreat and leaves just a ring. Little lacing. Aroma is light orange. Taste is slightly better than a macro lager with a determined orange peel presence. Maybe a hint of coriander. A fair amount of wheat helps the drinkability. A slight bitterness in the finish. Not bad summer substitute for macro brews.

Thanks to ghawener. Very sweet nose like honey. Light bodied. You can truly taste the orange and spice, however, it felt a bit artificial.

Bottle: Thanks to rcasta. Not what you expect for the style but drinkable, fruity over malt notes, citrus and herbal. refreshing.

Desde seattle hasta la casa de hawie con el gordo y esta me parecio como florero y naranja agria. No lo que busco en birria

Aromas has lots of orange and a touch of wheat. Pours a clear golden with a thin head. Dominant orange notes, a touch of coriander, and light wheat in the finish. Light and refreshing after working in the yard. Nothing special, but all things considered, its pretty decent.

The comparisons to Fruit Loops are spot on. Not the greatest, but drinkable in small doses. I tasted it as a sample at the Portland Saturday Market and really liked it, then went out and bought a 12 pack. Mistake. Will not buy again.

boFNjackson (4026) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2008 Bottle... Poured orange with a huge head that dissipated immediately. Aroma of Hi-C juice and pretty much tasted like Hi-C Ecto Cooler juice with fermented yeast. That’s pretty much it, this beer does shame to the style.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Bottle: Lightly hazy orange amber color with light white head. The nose is citrusy with lots of orange and lemon notes. Plenty of vanilla and light malts. The flavor is bright with orange peel and coriander. Not enough esters or malt body to maintain this sham though. Comes across like a fruit beer with orange extract.

Fruit Loops beer!!! the summer wheat has been renamed to the Belgian style wheat. it tastes exactly like fruit loops. cheap, and quaffable during the more warmer days of the year.
