2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle: Pours a pale creamsicle color with a foamy white head. Aroma of orange push-pops I used to get from the ice cream man. Flavor is a slight orange tone with a minimal wheat texture. A very light spice note gives this brew a more rounded flavor. I can agree that this is very similar to a orange pop, creamsicle, or push-up ice cream than a beer. Leinenkugel makes some of their beer more sweet and sugary than is tolerable. Palate is sweet and slightly spicy. Overall, As an American wheat this won’t blow you away. It’s decent from Leinenkugel but that’s not saying much. Average!

Very hazy straw color, effervescent head. Aroma of orange soda and some slight grainy funk. Orange Crush flavors with a bit of spice to keep it from getting cloying. Walks a thin line between "beer" and "malt beverage".

Bottle. Todd at Mt. Washington Beer Stand recommended this for my wife because she is an American Wheat fan. I poured it for her and smelled it and wow - lots of orange and blueberry. Creamy, thick white head. Deep blonde, hazy appearance. Full fruity, spicy flavor. Bigger than average body for an A.W. This beer received quite a few unfavorable reviews but I give it two thumbs up.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one poured with the dark yellow color, some haze and a head that left after 30 seconds. The aroma was of flowers and spice, with a hint of wheat and orange. The taste was right in the middle of the malt/hop balance with a little coriander and orange. Hops were just there for balance. Not real impressive, but a thirst quencher that goes down easily.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to milkmandan: We poured this to a chorus of "wow that looks just like a Northwoods sunset....smells just a like a Northwoods sunset....wow even tastes like a Northwoods sunset". Just like in description, we were left speechless, well at least after the obvious Northwoods sunset comments. But if you’ve had it then you know how spot on that beer hits "Northwoods sunset". Ok now for the actual rating. Pale yellow, slightly cloudy body, with a medium white head. The aroma is a nice spicy floral hops, chamomile, and cilantro scent (I know, I could have just said Northwoods sunset but I’m breaking it down into pieces here). Taste is chamomile, lavender, tea, lemon zest, and somewhere in the background, much like a band groupie with a backstage VIP pass, yes, you know what I’m going to say here, a Northwoods sunset. Light bodied, medium carbonated, crisp. Overall it tastes just like a Northwoods sunset, not medicine.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Actually, I like this better than most of the American wheats I’ve had-it has a creamy mouthfeel and a spicy finish. Wheat flavor a little subdued but has a sweet orange and coriander taste.

Fez Monkey, you did not get a bad bottle. This is how the beer tastes. I am a big fan of weiss beers, but this one was quite bad. I’m not kidding, it tasted like Froot Loops cereal, it was that sweet and lemony.

I had a few of these off tap at my local Bw’s while mowing on some Mango Habanero wings... they went great together. It was served with a wedge of orange. I enjoyed the wheat and orange taste but picked up on the lemon. Not much finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Tastes like drinking a Honey Weiss while chewing up coriander seeds. Very lemon and orange without any wit character to speak of. It is probably a lager at heart like the Honey Weiss. Disappointing.

Cloudy pale straw color with a snow-white head and lacing. The nose has lots of orange and coriander with a hint of licorice. The flavor is the same. Light in body. Smooth in texture. Not great but not bad either.
