3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 I have a soft spot in my heart because it was one of the first micros I ever had back in the early 90’s, but I know now that this really isn’t that great of a beer. Very little head, very cloudy appearance and very little aroma. Flavor is somewhat bitter and not very complex. Had a couple before the U of O/Michigan game and it tasted pretty good, but mostly because the Ducks won.

Solid cereal-colored beer, completely opaque with a solid creamy-air head. Little aroma and actually little flavor, but smooth, sweet and vaguely corn-flaked.

golden, somewhat cloudy with a decent head that faded leaving nice lace as I killed the beer.
Fresh nose of spicy floral hoppiness--maybe Tettnanger?
Nice light body with a mild maltiness, some yeast presence and mild wheat wang on the back end. decent session beer.

I was pleasently suprised at the quality of this beer seeing as I picked it up for about 7 bucks at meijer. Cloudy orange color, white head, and nice citrus aroma. Slightly bitter but overall good flavour.

Can't imagine being in Poartland and not having one of these. And can always tell where it's being served the second I see one as it is so visually identifiable. Cloudy looking, but clean and crisp and bitter - not the hefeweizen I normally think of, but one I like.

What can I say about this one. Very little distinguishes itself other than its consistancy in being unspectacular in most respects. Very little head/lacing. Pleasant and slightly sweet taste and that familiar cloudy unfiltered feel. Nice but not very noteable otherwise

Very clean tasting beer. Not much flavor or aroma though. People put the lemons in to give the beer a little flavor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very well rounded GOOD beer.
Appearance is cloudy golden; it's very bright and attractive. Not much of a head.
Smells slightly sweet... and lots of wheat.
EASY drinking- goes down smooth. Slightly sweet, and tastes just like it smells.
This is a very good session beer. It's smooth, easy, and tasty. And though I'm not a huge fan of the style, this is one I'd turn to again next time I'm in an area that sells it.
