Pours a cloudy yellow with a soapy, dramatic head. The aroma is fairly inviting with candy lemon drops coming to mind. Thin to medium palate with a nice burst of carbonation. The flavor doesnít quite live up to the aroma, but it isnít bad. Sweet citrus and a little bit of a punch of spice. Not bad.

fluffy (1782) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
A decent enough wheat with a bit of the floor polish aroma that lime can have. Finish was a bit bitter. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Spicy Clear golden body; lots of visible carbonation. Feel: very crisp, lively carbonation. Medium body is surprisingly ful for style. Flavorful with a bit too much coriander; Some lime peel flavor; spicy; mildly bitter; fanitly tart.

This beer is a light cloudy golden yellow wheat. The aroma is of slight key lime mixed with hoppy IPA undertones and a chopping finish. The beer has a flat finish. Not awful, but they should have went back to the drawing board. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at Akkurat. Stockholm, September 28th, 2011.
Sweet and fruity aromas with a dominating sense of passion fruit, peaches and apricot. Light clean body with a sweet taste of apricots, citrus fruits and hops.

crossovert (7872) - Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2011
This is the most effervescent beer ever, i would almost not even call it liquid, just gas in a bottle. It is probably old, the taste is actually better than one would expect, but the carbonation is at an absurd level.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Bottled as íWhite Aleí. Lively carbonation, coriander and lemon cleaner evident from the first. Hazy pour of yellow with golden insides and a large, sudsy white head. Taste is lightly soured and tart. Lemon and crushed coriander. Grain of salt for this rating - quite possibly a bad bottle - but even given that, Iíd probably have it again.

The spices are just a bit too strong in this one but otherwise itís a pretty plain white ale.

A- Body is a semi-cloudy thin straw yellow that pours with a small foamy white head that fades quickly to a fairly thick collar. Some lacing is left behind in the glass. Cloudiness is uniform throughout. S-Nose is on-the-mark for a wit. Coriander and citrus shine though as the main characters with a yeast presence behind it. T-Coriander and spiciness comes through the most upfront but a citrus flavor is also noticeable. The yeast comes through in finish as pretty sour. P-Low carbonation and light body. A bit thin-but not bad. O-I was pleasantly surprised by this offering. Itís a little on the sour side-but I like that about it. I was expecting this brew to be mediocre but itís pretty good and Iíll have it again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-02-2008 14:29:47

Light fruity wheat aroma. Hints of orange and lemon. Smells very summery. Slight hint of banana. Straw-yellow color. Cloudy as hell, mostly due to the stagnant sediment thatís flaoting in it. Iím sure itís fine, but not appetizing. A fruity hefeweizen. Has a sweet banana flavor, with a slightly sour finish. Orange peel. Hints of lemon at the end. The feel is light and fizzy. None of the sediment causes any grit or other texture. Perfect thirst-quenching feel for summer. A nice, light-bodied hefeweizen. Very fruity and pleasant.
