Digital_Aura (227) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a muddy, opaque brown-gold brew (Lovibond 20). Slight head and lace. Aroma is of a porter or stout! Hints of chocolate and malt. Actually, exactly like Count Chocula cereal. Taste is well balanced between being a wheat beer and pushing the porter envelope - has a wheat beer mouthfeel and watery palate, while offering slight notes of chocolate, hops and spice. A little on the flat side, but by far their best wheat beer offering.

damzz (238) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pours an opaque medium brown with an off white long lasting head with little lacing. The aroma is faint chocolate. The palate is light as it is with Shock Top beers. The chocolate malt dominates with a slight spice and a back of the throat chili hit after a few sips. I’ve had a chili beer that by the end of a bottle, my mouth was on fire. Not here thankfully

wxman (1340) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Pours a hazy orange/amber with a pale tan head that is quite full. Aroma is roasted wheat and spice. Taste is dark buttery caramel, sweet malt, biscuits and a hop bitterness that is assertive but doesn’t dominate. Pretty decent effort.

jcartamdg (1670) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Pours a hazy murky brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is chocolatey, roasty and grainy wheat. Flavor is still a bit on the light side. More flavor than I expected but I didn’t expect much.

degbert (1005) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Nose is faintly chocolately and spicy. Pours a rather unattractive murky brown, like tea left too long to steep. Definite chili and chocolate on the tongue, with a faint sweetness and a smokiness akin to anchos. Finishes sweet and dark. Tastes a heck of a lot better than it looks.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Sweet malty flavor with a quick finish.

mjg74 (2459) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle from Valley Farm. Hazy brownish in color. Sweet nose with a little hint of spice. Crisp wheat with a touch of spiciness. Pretty good body. Finish has just the slightest hint of peppers.

Pours medium brown. Nose has elements of citrus, roast and some toffee and sweet malts. Flavors, are coffee, touch of chocolates, oranges, citrus, bitter roast astringency, and a like drover warming character of the chilis. Not overly bad for having some many flavors going on.

BBB63 (5746) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle and served in my small Ayinger Hefe glass: Pours a brown hue with a lasting lovely beige head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate, wheat, coconut, pepper, cinnamon, and some bready esters. The taste is sort of like a dunkelweizen with carmel and chocolate malt notes along with some wheat and banana. The spice is mostly a quick hit towards the finish without much staying power. I expected more Midnight Wheat character and roast than this provided and sort of knew that the spice would be tepid. For what it is it is drinkable.
