On tap, as part of a tasting tray enjoyed while patiently waiting out a weather delay in the airport enroute to Chicago.Pale lemony yellow, scant head. Spicy aroma, wheaty, lemony accents. Spicy tart palate, but a little thin.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Hazy yellow white head. Aroma is phenols, esters, some clove and touch of biscuit. Taste is similar, with esters in the forefront and bread in the finish. Not bad, but nothing too exciting about it.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Draft sample at MSP. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium spicy citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting refreshing brew.

Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2009
Blonde ale with a thin white head. A pleasant sweet berry aroma. In mouth, a sweetish grassy wheat ale with light banana notes. Light bodied. On tap at MSP location, Jan 24 2009.

beastiefan2k (2421) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Sampler at MSP airport, labeled just "Wheat" but definitely a Belgian Wit, so I will rate it here. This was of course the first in the sampler and it was the first I rated. It looks very nice, a very hay, almost dirty, straw-golden color with radiant edges. Araom is spot on for Wit with lots of lemon and coriander and a touch of Belgian yeast dough. Taste is thicker with more coriander coming through. It has a cool and original, almost fuzzy mouthfeel to it, I enjoyed it tremendously.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2008
From a sampler on 10/17/08 at the Minneapolis airport. Cloudy yellow in appearance. Aroma - light yeast. This one was rather bland. Some banana and light spices, but overall just basically a common American wheat ale.

2.9
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Sample at the MSP location. This beer pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Mild spices and wheat in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of wheat and light fruit and spices. The finish is clean and fruity with a short wheaty aftertaste. Rather humdrum overall.

3.2
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Naka (705) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2008
On tap at the Minneapolis airport. Pours a milky golden with a slight haze. Clove, coriander, and some other spices that I can’t really distinguish. A very spicy flavor of clove and bananas. A subtle hint of bitterness. Light and refreshing body. Not great, but not bad either.
