My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow color with a medium sized yellow-white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was tangy lemonade with a sweet sugary undertone. The flavor was sugar, lemonade, a bit of bread and not much else. Medium finish. Light body. Eh.

rosenbergh (6490) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2011
355 ml bottle. Boston, MA.
Cloudy pale golden colour with small to average sized fluffy white head. Mild wheaty aroma with some sweet caramel notes. Wheat, malt and sweet fruitiness in flavour. Regular Wheat Ale. Nothing interesting here I’m afraid.

Bottled. Tasted sort of like a weak saison more so than a wheat. Poured gold etc. Ok.

BiddleBrau (915) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Clear golden with visibible carbonation and thin white head. No aroma. Very light, hint of lemon and grainy. Carbonation provides a bit of bite on the tongue.

thornecb (4291) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Light wheat and lemon aromas. Crisp wheat upfront with lemon, marshmallow and yeast in the dry finish. Very drinkable.

The look is quite see-through, a bright sunny yellow. It does look like a regular macro pale lager, but much brighter. Head is short-lived. It looks like a brighter-than-normal wheat beer. The smell is a slight wheaty aroma, but with almost a bitter malt to it as well. The smell is actually very slight. There is a slight twist of lemon, and some orange. Sweet, light, flowery. Wheat taste comes in with a strong fruit (orange peel) flavor. Sharp wheat punch. The fruit is really merely an accent to the typical wheat taste. Feels a bit dry, but also refreshing. The wheat comes through not only in the flavor, but also as a dry feel. Not ashy as I had worried. It’s not got a lot of character, but it’s quite drinkable. Sweet, summery, dry, wheaty.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Clear, pale amber color. Nose is light lemon. Flavor is light sweet lemon and yeast. Good session ale. $1.85 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.
