A delicious Northwest wheat beer with the added twist of ginger and coriander to give it a crisp, thirst quenching zing.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draught @ Rock Bottom Portland:   Heavy dirty straw, thin sudsy head that falls quickly, literally no lacing.   Seems flat.   Faint peppery nose, straw, hay, minimal barnish notes.   Hmmm, not to be a German example I see.   Has this candyish sweet aspect to it.   Almost like an unsweetened pixie stix.   Hmmm, this is very different from most other examples, American or German.   Hmmm, seems wheaty but its very dull.   This one seems a little off base to me.   Meh, I would rework this beer.   As is, not much of a wheat beer.

boFNjackson (4192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Tap... Poured a hazy golden-yellow with a white head. Aroma was grassy with clove and yeast spices. Foamy palate. A weird, citrus, cough drop, or medicinal character. Some malts with cloves and a mild bitterness in the finish.

caesar (5966) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2008
Tap @ Rock Bottom Portland. Hazy golden color, short head. Aroma of some wheat, some banana. The real weizens still come from Germany, and American weizens are more thin usually.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Hazy and light yellow, with a thin white head. Very little aroma and even less taste. Although I’m usually not much for wheat beers, this is even less.

Cloudy, yellow, good head, creamy look. Banana, little clove, lemon, smooth and very light carb. Nice but nothing special.

DYCSoccer17 (3513) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2006
10 ounce sample on tap at Rock Bottom in Portland, OR. Light, fruity, floral, lemony aroma. Quite faint. Hazy golden color with a small whitish head. Slightly lemony citric start, turning quite sweet in the middle. Very minute sourness to finish. Not sure if this is fermented fully or not--kind of wort-like.

Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Coriander flavour. Aroma is almost non-existant. Some light ginger. No fruitiness or spiciness. Flavour is somewhat fruity. OK, but not good.
