Fukito (1001) - Santiago, CHILE - JUN 27, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 Bottle - November 2004 Pour with a white and lastin head. Appareance is cloudy, the beer being opaque but beautifull. The aroma is of citrics ( oranges, lemons) the carbonatation is very lively. Taste is tart and somewhat acid, very thirst quenching. A favourite.

i love wheat beers and so far this is the best. a light crisp taste and very refreshing. the best on a hot summer day. not heavy at all on the palate.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2005
Bottled. Poured a brilliant cappucino like head (which Iím sure would have stayed for hours if I could have resisted) that created lovely lacings down the sides of the glass as I polished it off. Not a very strong aroma, but pleasant and spicy. Upon tasting, I realised the spicy aroma came from a deliciously sweet clove flavour. Aftertaste is very doughy, like undercooked pizza base. I could only get this, though, by waiting a while between tastes (got distracted by the stove!!). A fairly metallic finish, but a nice round body. A very tasty beer, but I donít know if I could drink this as a staple. Next time I might have to follow the instructions on the label LOL.

thegreenrooster (3820) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Pour is a bright yellow like lemon juice. Aroma is nice and spicy with a bit of pepper in there. Flavor is peppery and spicy with a lemony backbone. Very refreshing on a warm summer night.

Not a fan of whiteís. This beer is too washed out for me, like a mammossa made with champagne and banana juice.

Review for bottled product, but similar experience with beer on tap.

Pallid yellow with a light, frosty haze and a large, foamy head. Light, dry aroma with a definite floral character... perfumed... sourdough in tow. Bitter, sour flavor with light acidity to follow. Floral notes in the sinuses. Creamy mouthfeel with a dry end. If anyone here besides me has consumed rose petals, this is quite similar. Pleasant, melancholy and (dare I say) gothic.

ABUSEDGOAT (2469) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2008 Staple for the style. If SNPA is the textbook pale ale, this is certainly the texbook wit. Decent, enjoyable and well made... but not mindblowing.

I really enjoyed this one, served in a huge glass, takes awhile to drink, great taste, can taste the orange, with a bit of sweetness, great color, a bit white and amber combined, interesting appearance

Cloudy pale yellow body with average white head. Light grass, lemon citrus aroma and slight sour, lime flavor. Smooth body, sweet finish. Refreshing drinking beer.
