2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours light cloudy yellow with a citrusy smell. The flavor has an orange spice with lunchmeat flavor. Lasting citus flavor. Actually this is pretty refreshing when you concentrate on the citrus, but nasty if you pickup on the lunchmeat spiciness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured a hazy dull golden with a short-lived white head. Nose was powerfully sweet... candy-like with orange, lemon, and spices. Sweetness became out of hand in the flavor and palate departments... Lemonheads come to mind, backed by an orange and coriander assault. Lighter-bodied. Some sour citrus highlights and a little grainy. It would be hard to drink more than one of these at a sitting.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cloudy straw color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was fairly spicy and citrusy,kind of nice actually and surprising from a macro brewer,didn’t think they could do that.The taste is a little disappointing though.starts off as sort of cerealish in the beginning with a decent spice showing and some grainieness.Then is switches to a spicy lemon thing and the after taste lingers on and on and on.It’s hard to say if this is good or not but i guess from just the idea of would i drink this in volume,then no.It has plenty of flavor but just seems a little unbalanced in some way.Kind of a macro trying to look like micro by masking one of there cheap pilsners with some clouds,spice and fruit.Nice try but i’m not fooled by this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light and refreshing. Easy to drink and bubbly. Hints of wheat and then sweet sour citrus candy. Grainy malt finish. After a couple the bitterness lingers on the palate and becomes annoying. Still not a bad beer, I will be enjoying this over the course of the summer.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Holy lemonheads batman! Big lemon lime candy nose on this one! Also,a spicy, doughy lemon pie, and even a blueberry muffin, note. Not much up front, rather it fades quickly into a moderate bitter hop finish, but a lingering spicy coriander manages to surfaces after the hop finish. Still, lemon candy throughout. Weird. Resamples features a weird blueberry note that when mixed with the lemon, it smells and tastes like fruity pebbles. Pretty awful.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks good, a hazy straw body with a decent sized head, but the aroma smelled way too artificial, like orange and lemon candy with soapy yeast. The flavor was an improvement, starting with soft wheat and a smattering of barley malt, but then the faux orange and lemon surged forward again, leaving a finish like I’d just finished sucking on chaep hard candy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy orange with lingering white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, lemon and orange. Flavor is strong wheat upfront but finishes nicely with orange and lemon. Bit of a mild lemon zest and orange rhine aftertaste. Will be one of my top summer brews.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours cloudy golden with a short white foamy head that stayed pretty well. Aromas of yeast, wheat, and lemon. Flavor was a little bit of wheat but mostly orange and lemon. A touch of spice on the back of the sip too. Palate is light and carbonated pretty well. On a warm day this is o.k. but nothing great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice - light summer beer with a short lasting white head. Orangy smell with a touch of lemon, very citrusy taste. I’ve never had a beer quite like this one. It’s basically "lemonade on steroids" or "oberon light"...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is a BLAST of lemony coriander and sweet candy. WAY over the top on the coriander. I might detect the faintest hint of malt. Color is a hazy orange-yellow, a bit dark for a wit (assuming that is what it is really sort of intended to be, though bastardized). The head was big on the pour, and a small head sticks around for the whole session. The flavor is of lemony, orangey coriander, with some pepper, and a tad of grainy malt in the finish. Very sweet in the mouth but very dry in the finish. The pepper spiciness and coriander flavors stick around in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium-full. This ain’t a wit, and it ain’t even a good example of an American wheat. It is far too overdone. No hop bitterness to balance the sickly sweetness. This beer may please the girlie masses, but it doesn’t please me.
