"didnít care for this one. muddled fruitiness and not a whole lot else. i think of this as a generic girly wheat beer. not really worth it, even in the summer as there are just better wheats out there. not bad, but not good."

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Straw in color, slightly hazy, a little orangish, moderate to large sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft sweet corriander and citrus peel.   If this is supposed to be strictly a Wheat Ale, its very Belgian like.   Dull wheatiness on the tongue, not as spicy as the nose suggested.   I honestly thought this was a Belgian Wit when I smelled it, but it does not come across with any spices at all except maybe a slight citrus zest.   Pale wheatiness on the tongue, very slight citrus aspect.   The only downside for this one is that it doesnt seem hefty enough. &nbps Has a light spiciness to it, but otherwise its somewhat watery.   Needs more body for a Wheat Ale.

Very hoppy for a wheat ale, not much redeeming value. Tasted on tap at Brooklyn Waterfront Beer Festival, 6/16/2012.

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Smells faintly citrusy. Has a hazy blonde color with no head. Tastes like hefe with citrus no hops but slight bitter aftertaste. Light body and crisp

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured clear, pale, golden with a nice head with some retention. This was clean, fairly hoppy with the wheat malt adding spice, sweetness, and balance. Citrus, mild yeast esters, grassy, biscuity/cracker-like grains.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2012
Golden and clear. Small white head. Wheaty grainy aroma. A little flat. Dry papery grainy flavours. Wheat. Hints of fruit, but dominated by the grainy malts and the dry papery bitterness.

thetmaxx (905) - West Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Poured from the 12 oz bottle. Poured straw, thin head. Aroma is weak, no clove, coriander, banana, or orange. Flavour is clean, but no witbier. I am confused why its a wiezen here.... So overall not impressed, my witbier is better!

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 30, 2011
On tap at the Marriott hotel, San Francisco, 3rd March 2011. Had to try this, simply because it shares its name with the infamous UK white cider. Very light straw yellow, high carbonation. Small lacy white head. Has the nose of a pilsener rather than a wheat beer. Wheaty with pilsener flavours in the mouth. Nice dry finish.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Draft. Crystal clear golden in color, clean in aroma. Light yeasty flavor. Full finish.
