A: The pour is an extremely pale yellow color with an intense haze to it. The head is medium in size and white in color. S: Big time coriander aroma to this beer. The wheat and other malts provide a moderate amount of sweetness to the nose, and there is a minimal citrus note. T: Again, a heavy hand on the spice component. Lots of coriander and wheat with a distinct lemony tartness. Where am I, BJís? M: The body is quite light and the carbonation is quite high and lively. D: Another one of those really well known beers that everybody sort of has to try somewhere along the way. I havenít had this beer for a long time, but I did not find it did much for me on this occasion.

It pretty much look like lemonade. Hazy yellow with white head. smells a bit spicy but easy drinkable. Of course has a lot of wheat! Live carbonation and easy alrround finish. (Great for starters/beginners)!

Iíve been drinking this beer a long time now and it tastes a lot different to me now than it did eight to ten years ago. It was about the same time that they changed the label from a square yellow to the newer metallic circle that I noticed the change. Iím not sure if thatís psychological or if there was a real recipe change, but I like the older beer significantly more. Iíd probably rate it closer to a 3.8 today. This rating is the older beer. Pours light yellow with a nice fully aromatic citrus head. Taste is lemon citrus, light wheats, coriander lemon and orange zest and light spices. Rated 2/2/2000

Aroma of yeast, citrus, and old fashioned linoleum adhesive (just a hint). Or maybe itís just more yeast. Hazy light gold color with a large white head that went away, leaving bits of lace. Starts with strong citrus oil, and coriander. Suggestions of banana. Something of clove came next. Medium to full mouthfeel. The long finish is light clove mouthcoat and a little bitter, very little. Good ale. Clean and refreshing.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2010 Bottle - pours a hazy yellow. Yeasty, grainy, citrusy. One of the better macro beers.
