Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Draught at Franciscan Well Easter Festival. Pours a murky gold with a thin short-lived head. Aromas of wheat, citrus and wood. Light sweetness and medium bitterness - nicely balanced for a wheat beer. Bitter finish, slightly dry, lively carbonation and a medium body. Nice but nothing awe-inspiring.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 29, 2012
On tap at Farringtons. Cloudy golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma: hops, malt, citrus, wet grass, pine. Taste: bitter, tangy and dry. Strong citrus and creamy. Very nice.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Keg dispense at Porterhouse, Temple Bar. Murky golden brown pour with initially fluffy but quickly receding off-white head. Aroma is citrus, orange, banana, Belgian yeast complexity, spices. Taste is a very fresh and interesting balance of citrus, pine, banana, spices, slightly funky dry yeast complexity - really very refreshing. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a wheat beer, but it goes perfectly with the flavour profile. Tasty citric bitterness to finish, as well as a lovely saison-like dryness. All fits together very well. Such a great refresher of a brew, very impressed.

Dogbrick (11614) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2012
On draught at Bull & Castle in Dublin, from cask. This beer pours a murky brownish-amber color with a medium thick foamy white head that diminishes slowly. Partial sheets of lacing on the glass. Aroma of spice and wheat. Light-bodied with flavors of wheat, coriander and ripe fruit. The finish is fruity with a sweet spice aftertaste. Decent overall.

rulas3 (108) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 23, 2012
El color es el habitual de una Hefe Weizen, amarillo pajizo ligeramente oscuro, muy turbio, quizá más de lo común, con muy poco carbónico, lo cual puede hacerle creer a alguno que no está terminada... corona blanca, compacta pero escasa. El aroma es intenso, a levas, es decir, pan, galletas, etc. y a plátano, como le corresponde. En boca, tiene mucho cuerpo pero es muy fácil de beber, mucho grano pero sobre todo muchísimo plátano.
