hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Growler acquired in trade with puzzl (thanks!). Poured a medium and cloudy/muddy orangish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus and wheaty. Tastes of citrus, wheat, and also had a fruitiness to it.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2008
Growler from Bowery Whole Foods. Cloudy orange-golden beer with a thick sticky white head. Aroma is very wheaty and spicy with a hint of yeasty spiciness as well. Lightly dusty. Fairly prominently hopped (it’s Sixpoint after all). A touch of honey and light crystal malt in the nose as well. Flavour is well-balanced, spicy wheat and a fresh spicy hoppiness. A touch of bubble gum and a lingering flinty bitterness. Soft lemony citrus flavour as well. Very nice, easy-drinking beer... this growler won’t last long.

Draft. Pours unclear golden orange with an off white head. Wheaty aroma with some citric hints. The flavor has some lemony citrus up front, wheat, and some light grainy notes in the finish. Decent.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Draft. Hazy orange body with a white head. Lots of citrus and wheat, spicy clove notes bubblegum banana esters and a lemon grass finish. Decent Wheat.

jredmond (5213) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Sampled this briefly at Ginger Man in NYC. My buddy, Pwn3d, ordered this sucker and insisted that I try it. Pours a beautifully hazy body with small white head. The aroma is strangely enough very close in resemblance to Old Spice... other than that, the aroma boasts a wonderfully complex voyage of wheat and hop. The flavor is not bitter at all like the aroma suggests. There are strong notes of citrus, wheat, and lemon. Great wheat beer.

notalush (4766) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Growler from Bowery Whole Foods - really fizzy, cloudy gold beer - in typical sixpoint fashion, they have hopped the hell out of this one - herbal, earthy hops fill the nose and blast the tongue - very light wheat and biscuity malt character hide underneath there, as well as a little bit of tangy citrus that becomes like grapefruit rind near the finish, but other wise this is a hop monster of a wheat ale - if you like that sort of thing, get your ass a growler of this.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Growler filled at Bellport Beer. Refill price was $8.99, which I thought was excellent. Pours a cloudy rust color with a moderate linen white head that disappeared before a quarter of the glass was finished and left very little lace. Much darker than what I would expect from a wheat beer. The aroma was mostly bitter hops and reminded very much of the white pith of a grapefruit. Some notes of wheat in the aroma as well. The flavor starts out with a strong wheat flavor and there is a dry, bitter finish, again very similar to the pith of a grapefruit. Glad I tried it, but probably not something I would go back to.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Growler from Bowery Whole Foods: Very cloudy deep copper pour topped by a creamy, light tan head. Fruity nose, mild tropical notes of peachy fruitiness and mildly sweet citrus resins. There is some grainy malt notes and just a touch of wheat-like sharpness. The texture is nice and smooth, with a well hopped flavor. (like usual from Shane at Sixpoint) Has some peach notes as well as crystal malt notes (mildly nutty) Some breadiness from the malt as well, making it hearty and fruity simultaneously. A satisfying and easy drinking Wheat Ale (if you like hops).

beastiefan2k (2359) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Super hoppy in your mouth. If you like it thats what this beer got. Super hoppy on the nose, if thats what you want this beer will clear you sinuses. Color is orange and clear, strong small head. I would have no idea this is a "wheat" beer. All fruity, lightly resin-y but easy drinking hops with low bitterness. Taste lacks even a bit more substance than the aroma. As I keep drinking this it gets very tiring and uninteresting.
Growler from Whole Foods, Kasteel long stemmed lightly curved goblet glass.

On draft at SD. Pours a murky caramelwith a creamy beige head. Aroma of light tangy citrus, grains and bitter hops. Taste of mellow tangy citrus, bitter hops and a touch of grain.
