12 oz bottle, this beer surprised me. I was never a big fan of white ales but the Citra hops really make this one interesting. A tropical taste in this beer, quite refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - Abercorn St - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy medium golden, little to no head. Aroma has some coriander accents, a touch of yeast. Flavor has some nice lemony accents, a touch of coriander, some light bubble gum. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Dependable, as most Saranacs are.

jgb9348 (4740) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Hazy golden coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of coriander seed, curacao, full oranges, lemons and a lot of yeast - strong. Medium-bodied; Very strong coriander seed flavour coupled with a good orange and lemon flavourand some honey sweetness. Aftertaste shows a very pungent yeast kick followed by some subdued sugars and thatís about it - a lot of coriander seed and curacao, but itís minimal at the end. Overall, a decent wit at best, too much coriander seed flavour and a bit too much oranges, both in the form of a full orange and in curacao. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Stop & Shop in New Paltz, New York on 30-August-2014 sampled a bit later in the day here in New Paltzia.

EithCubes (4911) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Nose of citrus fruit and roses, faint grapes and strong (fake) peach. Yucky pale yellow-golden, just dingy, with a tight rocky beige head. Taste is bone-dry and strongly bitter, touch of perceived sweetness from the strongly artificial peach. Crisp, aggressive full body, no malt development, astringent and rubbery in the sharply bitter finish. Dumper.

robgibbens (412) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours opaque straw color with a nice rocky white head. Hop aroma is intense, fresh apricot mixed in. Apricot continues in the flavor with a slight bitterness. Finished clean with some wheat at the end.

r464 (1928) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Very crisp. Tart citrus and berry with a punchy flavor that leads to a smooth trailing finish. A bit earthy, a bit of grain. A very nice warm weather seasonal.

fsbw21086 (333) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Tuity fruity.... Aroma of lemon and orange. Slight initial hop bite followed by bready kindof offputting lingering aftertaste. Not horrible. Was on sale for $6.50 a 6pk.

obguthr (3845) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Mango and peach nose. Hazy golden, thick head and good lacing. Dry, peach flavor. Bitter lemongrass finish. Abundant carbonation, maybe a little too much. Fruity, but not a lot of wheat character. More like an APA, with exclusively fruity hops.

puboflyons (2151) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 26, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a milky pale yellow-orange with a white fizzy head. Aroma is over -the-top with fruit like apples, watermelon, and mango. Toasted biscuit malts are virtually invisible. The mouthfeel is summery and light. The fruit flavor defines this beer like it does the aroma with a mildly bitter finish. I think I wanted less fruit.

BREWMUSKCLES (2234) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2014
fishbowl aroma at first followed by a delightful fruit punch and tropical fruit flavor, sweetish with some chalk in the finish. the brew is tangy and develops a nice aroma in time in accordance with itís taste and lingers pleasantly in the finish. demonstrative it is one perhaps the best summer wheat i have ever experienced. all still available from a family that brews beer obviously not for money. BRAVO, WHAT MADE AMERICA GREAT!
