Hangover (1117) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Cloudy orange pour with an initially huge fizzy head that recedes to a slight film. Aroma is huge on orange with a bit of coriander. Crazy orange flavor, almost like drinking a sunkist soda. Iím not sure if itís really that sweet and citrusy without adding some kind of artificial flavor or not. Somewhat tart, some rasberries in there and lively carbonation. Hell, I donít care, I like it!

Glamdring (14) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Great and refreshing summer beer. This beer is golden in color with a medium head. Citrus aroma, and tastes kind of like liquid fuity pebbles. Goes down smooth and great with a lemon or an orange. I never thought drinking fruity pebbles would taste so good.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Poured a hazy yellowish color. Aroma was citrus, very nice. Taste was something perfect for the summer time - which is when I had it so yeah for me.

I bought a six of this while visiting my daughter at WVU for parents weekend í06í. I had the last 2 bottles the next day at end of summer block party. Perfect summer beer. Light body with citrus and raspberry flavor. Went down fast and easy. I enjoyed them.

Hollywoodt (240) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours a light hazy peach color. The aroma is of sweet citrus. Flavor was also sweet with some coriander, as well. It was definitely lighter, and sweeter than most american wheats, but not bad. I could see drinking this on a hot summer day.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Hazy light gold. Frothy white head. Predominently sweet lemony wheat aroma. A bit like a mixture of shampoo and dish soap. Taste is kind of the same with a dry wheaty finish. The start though, is sort of a sweet adjuncty thing. Sweet herbal stuff. Doesnít do much for me.

Lung (8) - Morgantown, West Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2006 does not count
A dull golden pour from the bottle with a minimal head. Semi-cloudy. Effervescent. Tiny wheat flavor. Nice citrus aroma, even got a whiff of banana here and there. Flavor doesnít stand up. Finishes clean. Doesnít last long. A thin and light American Wheat.

jsquire (4147) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Honey golden color with a thin white head. Smells like candy and corriander. Initial taste reminded me of the Smarties sugar candy. It just tasted like candy to me, with some corriander. Almost like orange Kool-Aid powder. Too sweet with not enough beer in it for me.

Cloudy golden, aroma of berries with a crisp light flavor. Good and cheap. A nice American beer, better then most american beers

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 3, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2006 Pours hazy light yellow with a thin, mostly maintained wispy white head. Aroma of oranges, apricots, raspberry, and honey. Tastes of oranges, crisp wheat, and raspberry. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with foamy, but lively carbonation.
