2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Near clear, deep golden body with a white head that deteriorates in a flash. Poof. Gone.
Smell: Decidedly sweet-scented, smelling of heady malted wheat, syrup, jellies, honeybear honey, and booze with little lemongrass showing.
Taste: Heavily sweet, quite sugary from the first sip on. Sugar, sticky honey, muscat jelly. No real hop character or bitterness to begin tempering this mess. Vein of acidity running through the middle. Again, not much lemongrass, mostly just raw sweetness. Faint, faint and a noticeable booziness on the thick, that-ainít-exactly-luscious, toothsome finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: I was geared up for a sweet, heavy beer, but, ugh, this was just clunky, clumsy, and cloying. A sack of sugar wouldíve been cheaper.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburís Fort Collins and accidentally lost in the back of my fridge for a year. Pours a very hazy dark yellow orange appearance with an off white head that doesnít have much retention. Slightly tart, herbal grape, somewhat spicy, a bit citrusy aroma. Flavor is fairly tangy/tart with a decent amount of tropical fruits, a ton of grape juice, and some spicy herbal elements. For the age, this still tastes pretty decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours light amber with a small head. Aroma of grapes, light lemongrass, light wheat, and light hops and malts. Flavor the same, with the grapes dominating. Average texture. A weird beer.

Hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Softish palate with a little fine carbonation. A little marmalade orange dominated by big fresh lemongrass. Slightly sweet. Semi dry finish. Refreshing and very moorish. Really well done.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a dusting.
The aroma is sweet citric wheaty malts, honey and grapes.
The flavor is bready malts, sweet grape juice and honey with some musty yeast. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and a bit watery with some slight spritzy carbonation.
Overall, itís OK - overly sweet.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is a cross between floral and cough drop. The head disipates instantly leaving no trace at all. Amber orange color is hazy with minimal bubbling. Taste is slightly sweettart, with definate grape juice undertones. Slick texture, medium body and soft carbonation linger on the palate for some time. Overall itís an interesting beer that I would have again. One of the better beers Iíve had from Widmer as they havenít impressed me much to date.

Sounded promising but delivery or.Bomber into hefe glass. Drinking while cooking do I didnít pay ad much mind to details add I could have.mostly turned off by overly sweet palette and low carbonation making for a sticky sense of not really being a light wheat but not sure what it was.was looking for something light crisp and easy drinking, and this wasnít it.

Decent. Pours a beautiful orange color. Smell is a light lemon smell. Taste is very lemony, very sweet and a little bit of sour. Quite a bit of alcohol overtones. Has a little bit of a malt liquor taste. Decent, but won't have again. Had in the bottle.
