Beautiful cloudy golden color. The taste was strong and bread-like. Very yeasty. Otherwise, the taste was not very distinctive. Not a bad wheat beer.

This is not my favorite style of brew by any means, but for an American adaptation of a wheat beer, it is well-done. Cloudy orange appearance offset nicely by fluffy head, which seems to hold up better on tap than in bottled version, though flavor is very similar in both versions. Aroma is complex combination of signature yeastiness and wheat sweetness and tang...Nice body and overall balance with substantial mouthfeel. Goes down very smoothly. Finish is combination of hops and yeasty tang---unusual but pleasant. Citrus squeeze refreshing on a warm day--otherwise try it without...This is the best American version of a wheat beer Iíve tried.

Not worth spending many words on. More boring than bad, but bad enough that I didnít want more than a few swigs from the sampler glass the bartender kindly gave me on a busy night in Boyne City.

I had this on tap in a smoky tavern in northern Michigan where it seemed particularly out of place, but I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt. And failed. Itís a weak, sad little beer with a metallic hop action that seems as out of place as this beer did in its environs.

Typical cloudiness Iíve come to expect from wheat beers. Sweet and sticky, the aftertaste is smoothed by the overall flavor. Not bad for a wheat! And the bottle is kind of cool too!

Hefty, thick almost, in the body. Very strongly wheaty, nothing delicate here. Good. Quite yeasty.

pivo (2571) - GERMANY - JUN 25, 2002
Light honey-ish nose that was weak. Cloudy, almost opaque orange-tan color that was unusual. Cracker-like taste that is overpowered by a hoppy bitterness. Thin but refreshing. Head went away too quickly, though. Not at all true to style, but for some reason I liked this.

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2002
Mustard yellow color with a thick yeasty appearance. The suspended yeast seems olmost scientifically picture perfect. Aromas of sweet butter which moves towards bananas as the beer warms. Very grainy texture with citrus flavors (grapefruit?). Somewhat bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2004 Widmer's standard. They produce a lot of it, and the quality of course is low. Drinkable, but really not that great.
