Draft, at Blind Tiger (NYC) 8/30/08. Pours pale orange amber, capped with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, mild yeast, and crisp hops. Flavor is primarily wheat, with lemon and floral hops. Hops linger on the palate. Refreshing.

On tap at BT. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma is weak, just some light sweet malt. Flavor of sweet malt, some light fruits, wheaty finish with bittering hops. Had a champagne-like spritziness. Not bad-- it was pretty tasty and drinkable.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Aroma of wheat and graininess with some floral hops. Flavor of astringent grains with a hint of sweetness. On the weak side. Blargh.

hayduke (3372) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 23, 2008
I am glad that Sierra Nevada brought this to Hops in Humboldt in Fortuna, CA because I had never seen it before. Came a cloudy light yellow, with fizzy white head and light lacing. Nose of citrus hops some fruit like banana. Light but smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the citrus hops, and it finishes dry . I had two glasses and the second was good as the first.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2008
Very light pour, well carbonated, very citrusy, Quite watery for a wheat, but not terrible, would be great on a hot day.

Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle. Gold on the pour with big head. Carbonation is high. Aroma of citrus / hops as normal. Taste is a little thin and slightly sweet. This beer is light and refreshing, a must for any work in the garden.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Draft at Brews in the Village; nose of grainy wheat with some fruity banana notes; clear gold with a small off-white head; flavor of caramel, grain, and some light hop bitterness.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Tap at Blind Tiger. Little aroma. Lightly vegetal, olive, cucumber, wheat taste. Dry, with clean, unassertive yeast. Very drinkable, if a touch thin. Surprised that I liked this at all, as I usually can’t stand American Wheat, but this was very well done. It avoided the pitfalls of so many others or the stuff.

JohnnyJ (4362) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Clear gold with white head. Aroma of citrus, grain and hops. Flavors of wheat, citrus, and hops. Slightly sweet and quite refreshing, but not very interesting.

littlecarp (135) - Redding, California, USA - MAY 15, 2007
transparent gold color, very bubbly with a foamy head. Citrus aroma. Initial flavor is hoppy like the aroma. Finish is almost nonexistent. Not very impressive.
