It is slightly hazy, yellow-golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of wheat, citrus and some other fruits. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of citrus, wheat, fruit and the finish is slightly dry and citrussy with hints of oranges. The wheat is too subdued.

Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Pale orange, tiny head. Vaguely beery aroma, light fruitiness I guess. Crisp carbonation. Slight hint of freezer ice and nettles. Very dull, and the carbonation detracts from the experience. Drinkable. The simple grains were nice.

hopscotch (9170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle… Pours hazy and yellow with a small, flimsy, white head. Good retention. The aroma offers black tea, wheat and mild lemon with just a rumor of tangerine. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is of lemon and moderately sweet black tea. Crisp, lightly sweet finish. Fairly enjoyable and very refreshing.

Yellow pour, white head. Aroma of crackers, light malt, faded hops and wheat. Flavor is refreshing if not boring. Wheat and yeast mixed with a light hop flavor. Ok.

Drake (8601) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a golden yellow color with a very, very slight haze. Medium head with decent retention. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is strong wheat with nutty notes, a bit of hops and corn. Taste is a grainy, nutty maltiness, bread, corn and a fruity hop finish. Medium bodied. Earth Day can taste much better than this.

Bottle. Pours medium gold with 1-finger white head and a lot of carb streams. Nose is hopcitrus, aprictty fruit, honey, pale malt. Tastes very wheaty and pale malty, with some corny, fruity, and late hops. Medium palate with suitable complexity. Not bad for a summer hot day starter.
