[bottle - 750 ml] Golden color with a fizzy and lasting white head. Aroma has lots of yeast and spice mixed with some citrus, pear, wheat, and some alcohol. Flavor is yeasty and spicy at the beginning with a light and grainy middle followed by a finish of yeast, citrus, and wheat with a decent alcohol burn. Watery, but decent.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 Bottled in April 2007, Bottle #1884 Golden yellow in colour with a long lasting mid-sized white coloued head, good lacing. The aroma is of light alcohol, pears, yeast, spice with the ever present grassy hops. The flavour is hoppy at first with some noticeable alcohol, peppery spice. Alcoholic mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hot and hoppy.

The was a spicy beer for sure. It was rather high in alcohol and it makes no attempt to hide. Nice and hoppy but lacking in body as it was a bit thin.

750ml bottle from the Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York.
Opened on May 25, 2008.
Bottled in April 2007, Bottle #1884.

I can tell that this was made with pride and that it is of good quality but it’s not my flavor. Has a citrus aroma and flavor. If you like white ales then this will be a good one to try.

Bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing. Pours a hazy golden-amber with a bubbly, white head. Sweet aroma, of malt, herbs, and banana. Sweet and spicy taste, of herbs, malt, banana, and other fruits. Lingering clean spiciness. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Very fresh aroma of wheat and lemony citrus. The flavor is fruity and lightly sweet, with yeat, wheat, and lesser notes of citrus and perfume. Very drinkable.

750ml, batch E!008. Clear golden pour with a fine white head and no lacing. Barely detectable wheat, yeasty, honey, apple, slightly spicy. Faint citric hops and some bubblegummy sweetness, lemons. Flavor is similar, but less sweet. I bought my bottle and sersdf’s at the same time, from the same place, I’m assuming the fact that mine spent no time in the mail is the reason for the better appearance.

Gold-orange color with a moderate head. Citrusy aroma with some sweetness and a decent amount of hops. Flavor has some mild citrus and floral hops, sugar, and light spice. Pretty good, though pricey.

thanks nhorween. pale peach color. disgusting yeast chunks flying around. heady/foamy. smells just like the Hopfen. really flat. not a ton of wheat character. i’m actually liking it despite not having anything specifically positive to say about it.
