Bottle. Had at a beer tasting in DC. A nice light lemony aroma. Taste is of faint wheat and lemons. Pretty good beer, not great but decent.

Bottle (12oz). Hazy-bubbly pale gold with a decent bright white fizzy head. Aroma - lemongrass, man o man! Sort of like slightly sour lemon air freshener, sharply lemony with some spice. The lemongrass works better in the flavour, which is very refreshin - crisp, citrusy, decent carbonation and a little acidic. Another oddball - it canít decide if itís a lame-o attempt at an american wheat or a fizzy spice/;veg brew.

Not quite "hefe" enough. The commercial description is better than the contents and ceratainly more than I can discernt. Not bad really, just nothing more constructive to add and fairly mundane all around.

Poured a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of acidic lemony citrus with some off notes, like sweaty gym socks. Taste is toffee, lemon, and more sock character. Not impressed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I worte my rating of this beer knowing nothing other than it is a hefe: Bottle poured into a small pilsner glass. Color is cloudy light yellow. The nose is very lemony, more lemon than just citus. A very present aroma. The beer has a bite to it when you taste it. Jumps in your mouth and tickles the taste buds. The flavor is again lemony, not hefe-like. The beer has a light body with a bit of bitterness. It seems my original notes go hand in hand with the decision to make it a spice/herb/veg beer.

[bottle] Sweet sugary aroma. Flavors are strong wheat, yeast and lemony citrus flavors. Finishes quite bitter. Not the greatest.

(12oz bottle, best by end of 7/06) Hazy straw body topped by a medium pillowy white head. Aroma is medium sweet, herbal (lemongrass), lemon, some clove. Taste is medium sweet, tart lemon, some lemongrass, banana, herbal. Creamy light-medium body with some crispness. Guess Iím in the minority, but I enjoyed this one.
