3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice white but not very special. Love the aroma though with citrus, sweet malts and coconut. Cloudy amber colour, white frothy head, nice lace. Light citrus, light sweet, bit thin, not very strong flavors. Long lasting finish, little hoppy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2004 The beer upon its debarking the 12-ounce brown bottle pours a well 'Chill Hazed' orange-amber color, the head munificent, creamy white in color, it disintegrates into velvet like sheets that cling to the glass. 'Ah That Smell', earthy grains, citrus, hints of bubble gum, ripe fruit, malt, need I say more. Front is lightly sweet, the top skinny, the finish forcefully acidic, the hops apropos to this style, the aftertaste droughty and long lasting, quite drinkable, not great but certainly a nice change of pace for me.

I mainly bought this for the curiousity factor (buckwheat?? in beer??) and the promise of spiciness. It was mellower than I anticipated, but still pleasing - some bubblegum in the aroma and flavour, some coriander, and maybe ginger? A little too fizzy, though.

Golden colourd, hazy. Acidic lightly estery nose. Refreshing and fruity with somewhat soapy mouthfeel. Well balanced. This is just my type of beer, and I really liked it!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2003 Rerate 03/30/03: On tap at Cheval Blanc Brewpub this is one of the best beers I have ever had. It resonates with malt and belgian complexity and rich notes of buckweat... it danses on the tongue and lingers there for minutes after each sip. This is not the same beer as in the bottle.. Also this is NOT a german wheat as it is labled above:::::Previous rating: Disapointing, considering how much i had heard of this one. Faint rye malt flavour, "dirty" cheval blanc yeast and spices blen in this acceptable belgian styled ale. Just change the yeast guys.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yellow, little head. Yeast and hints of banana in the nose. Wheaty, or buckwheaty i suppose, slightly bitter finish. Spritzy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrus, hops aroma. Hazy apricot colour, big vanilla head, some floaties. Grapefruit, coriander and wheat flavour. Lots of carbonation, good tongue tingle, as in a Belgian. Complex, a very unique beer!

RateBeer Summer (Toronto) ’02: A gift from the fine people at Black Oak. Delightful aroma (spicy. banana, bubble-gum, buckwheat). Huge head, light cloudy yellow color, watery mouthfeel, ends lightly acidic. I had mixed feelings on this one. The aroma was great, but the rest seemed a bit lacking.
