5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Fiery straw in color, clear with plenty of carbonation, moderate to large frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft wheaty nose, almost just as mealy.   Somewhat grassy as well.   Fairly much the same on the tongue, wheaty to a degree but also mealy.   Finish is clean.   Soft grassiness lingers.   Body and mouthfeel are on par.   This would be great while watching some baseball in Safeco.   Not as crisp as your normal German example, but its still enjoyable.

wheat on the nose and that is about it. cloudy dark yellow pour with nice looking white head. almost no flavor to this beer. Slight crispness on the palate. very boring beer. awkward on the palate.

A very good wheat beer! Golden pour with a big white head. Some nice lacing around the glass. Aroma is citrus with honey and malt. Sweet and smooth taste of fruit and honey. A nice beer!"

Six pack from the grocery store. I honestly donít remember much about this and my notes have nothing but a number. Must have been memorable.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2009
On tap. Clear golden with a small, creamy off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts and fruit. Medium body, rather sweet and clean malts with a subdued bitterness. Very fresh and quaffable. 250709

TizzleJizzle (623) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2009
The aroma is decent with notes of lemon peel and sweetness. It doesnít appear too appealing with its pale lager color and minimal head. This beer was quite refreshing and flavorful however, with citrus, slight malt, and mild bitter finish. This wheat ale is ok; Iíd prefer an unfiltered wheat instead. Cheers!

From tap at the Pyramid taphouse in Walnut Creek. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity. Citrusy hops flavoured, smooth and distinct fruity. Subdued bitter and lingering fruity flavoured finish.

Ungstrup (29486) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2009
Draft at the alehouse in Walnut Creek. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet and malty - I donít pick up any wheat. The flavor is sweet and mostly malty, but towards the finish a light wheat note appears and makes the finish dry with just a hint of citrus fruits. Forgettable.
