Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottled. Poured cloudy medium golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up nice orange meat and wheaty notes topped by more sour citrus, white spices, and floral notes.. really nice. The flavor found tangerine meat and smooth wheat on the middle, with cloves, orange peel, and other spices laced throughout.. finished tart and very refreshing. Lighter-bodied and well-carbonated.. this felt great on the palate.. excellent beer!

phaleslu (7362) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a pale, clear bright gold with a big white head. Notes of straw, bread, banana, clove, lemon zest, grass, mild spice, sugars, fruity esters, and wheat. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, estery mouthfeel that suggests a Belgian yeast strain. Very mild spiciness. Not bad.

Cybercat (3874) - Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2015
Pours slightly hazy amber with a thick and fluffy eggshell head. Wheaty aroma has yeasty, fruity, and subtle spicy tones, making the mouth go Pavlov. Flavor delights with wheat, banana, hoppy, grassy, and shy woody and cloves notes. Cheers indeed! Texture is fairly viscous, if not very fizzy. Let this give you some cheer any time of year.

deyholla (7710) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of sweet wheat and some winter spice as well as clove. Flavor is similar with spice and sweet wheat throughout the beer.

Draft. Hazy light yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of raw bread dough, subtle banana, clove, citrus. Taste is lightly spiced citrus. Decent.

Miburui (17) - - MAR 8, 2015
Spicy hops are up front but not too prominent, though repeated sips increase the bite and can leave bitter aftertaste. A warm lightness pervades, with maybe just a hint of citrus. Frothy head. Overall a good beer right out of the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JohnnyJ (4811) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy golden pour, with a white head. Wheat, banana, coriander, grain, clove, and a bit sweet. Pretty nice for a wheat beer.

obguthr (4427) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Lemon, coriander, and mint nose. Cloudy golden, thick head, some lacing. Coriander and mint, light malt underneath. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Very mild DMS that is barely perceptible through the spiciness but becomes apparent upon warming.
