Beerman6686 (4346) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2009
This poured a pale yellow color with a normal white head. Aroma was a bit grassy and sweet. Flavor was sweet but watery with hints of musty and grassy hops. Not good.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Hazy golden orange with a white head. Perfume, brett, lavender and spices in the nose; interesting. Flavor has notes of lemon, wheat, flowers, spice, brett/funk, slightly tart and sour. Very crisp and attenuated. Medium bodied with effervescent, lively carbonation. Interesting beer, perhaps a slightly funky, accidental saison?

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Thanks to Ken for this one. Light brown body, fizzy head formation. Sour aroma, brett noticeable, and olive juice unfortunately. Flavor is sour, lemony, and shows some brett. Stingy on the palate. I did not enjoy this at all.

3fourths (8029) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2008
12oz bottle shared by kmweaver. So this is a wheat lager made with a Belgian yeast - at least it smells and tastes that way. Pillowy, perfumy and mildly spicy yeast all over this thing, it smells pretty nice and tastes even better. Strangely delicious, with pepper, tart wheat, orange peel and coriander, though it’s perhaps a little too syrupy in the finish.

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 27, 2008
(12oz bottle, thanks kmweaver) Medium off-white head topped by cloudy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, Belgian yeast, Bret-lemon sourness, some wheat. Taste is mild sweet, Bret, lemon, some floral, wheat, yeast. Dry light body, light acidity, fairly smooth. Unusual, and quite enjoyable.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 26, 2008
12oz bottle, courtesy of Brigadier. Thanks, Nathan! Pours a cloudy, golden-orange color; white head with medium-bubbled lacing. Some pleasant, ephemeral tartness in the aroma: wheat, pepper, and a dense yeastiness. Medium mouthfeel; solid citrus tartness, yeast, and wheatiness; a bit of dustiness creeps in as well, but overall a very drinkable, mildly tart wheat beer. Medium finish, showing dust and tart citrus and some breadiness at the end.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Provided by kmweaver. Hazy amber with a small white head. The nose is hay, banana, peach, herbs, perfume and pepper. The flavor is fairly dry and watery with wet grains, pepper and peach. Medium/light body is thin with light carbonation.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Thanks to Nathan for the bottle! Poured clear, brighter golden with a tall, fluffy cap of white head and lots of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up bunches of dusty, peppery yeast, lemon zest, and floral.. sour and engaging. The flavor began with tangy sour lemon on the tip of the tongue, with bread and wheaty notes across the middle, never losing the sour lemony notes.. short, dry finish. I thought the sourness was an interesting twist.. lighter-bodied and grainy on the palate. Very solid stuff!

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours with a huge head with a nice lasting cap of foam and good lacing. Grainiest smelling beer ever. Tastes a bit odd, like wheat husks and grass. Interesting but not great.

C-Bus 10: Bottle shared by brigadier: Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Aroma, citrus and herbal notes, yeasty, pale bready malts. Flavor, yeasty, citrus, herbal, wheat, and bready malts.
