12oz bottle. Rating #259. Extremely hazy, dark yellow color with a thin white head. Fruity aroma, picking up a light peach aroma, a bit of citrus that lends a bit of sweetness. Flavor is lemony, mild bitterness and aftertaste. Nice stuff. (2393)

Thanks, CanIHave4Beers. Tasted from 12 oz bottle into tulip. Poured a hazy, pale golden color with white foam which quickly subsided. In all aspects, a fairly true-to-style Belgian wit. Pale, wheaty, citrusy, mildly spicy. Emphasis was still on the unfiltered yeast, but it was less nuanced than classic examples. I did enjoy the subtle, unexpected sourness. I like the idea of a family grocery store in Iowa offering this kind of beer for generations before the Blue Moon fad.

Bottle shared by pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a hazy piss straw yellow body under a HUGE bubbly white head, I’m talking like 95-100% head on the pour, very ugly. Aroma of buttery banana, wet wheat, buttered toast, buttered pop corn, did I mention there was a buttery aroma with this one?? Strong bubbly carbonation, a medium body and just really bubbly overall. Flavor starts off with wheat then toast with a hint of banana and then butter.....a good amount of butter. This was just a buttery mess.

Courtsey of canihave4beers! Pours a hazy straw yellow with a generous sized head. Aromas of banana, clove and detergent, I shit you not. Also, I smell used condoms. All bets are off with this beer... So here goes the first sip: wow. That was worst than expected. The second sip is worse than the first. This beer is such an epic fail on so many levels. Although, rumor is that this is the official beer of pepsiedcan.

Bottle, via trade extra. Pours out a decent cloudy white beer color with a huge, foamy white head. Aroma is of spices, coriander, light citrus rind and some mild buttery notes. Taste is light spices, cracker, lemon zest and light butter notes.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with Atom. This one gushed out of the bottle and all over my counter when I opened it. Pours a very hazy pale straw yellow with a monstrous white head that overflowed the glass upon pouring. What a pain in the ass. The aroma is heavy wheat, coriander and banana. The flavor is similar. Way overcarbonated. I think I actually ended up drinking about half of this beer because the other half either overflowed my glass or gushed on to my counter.

Bottle; Pour is light golden with a modest white head in this glass - Coriander, lemon grass, and a light yeast note by my estimation. The spice note is prevalent out of the gate; wheat grass, light yeast notes; and a heavy drinkable aspect that resonates well with me - for this price point, this is a nice one.
