a solid looking and tasting beer, the beer has a beautiful golden color with a touch of haziness. the aroma is strong with a bit of grass and lemon. the taste has a strong flavor of nice bread and wheatgrass. carbonation works well for a scrub. Highly recommended.

Bottle. Poured hazy golden color with an average white frothy head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate grassy citrus, wheat and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting beer.

Pours a deep golden color. Aroma is of lemongrass, wheat, malt, and some citrus. Flavor is the same with the citrus really coming through in the finish. Leaves a nice and sweeter citrus finish. Good one!

This was a draft pour at the Sushi Bar in McCall, Idaho. I think you either like lemongrass or you do not. I kind of liked it. I came in the shaker glass a hazy yellow with a nice white head and a big nose of lemongrass. Remarkably full body for a wheat beer, and a smooth slick mouthfeel. Must be a lot of wheat in there. The flavor is somewhat sweet and as it moves into the finish you then get some bitterness for a nice bitter-sweet effect. Alcohol is well hidden. This went very well with the sushi.

Babyfood pear aroma with hints of cayenne pepper. My son called it a really weird Texas Pete smell. Clear amber, headless. Whole overripe orange flavor with hints of sage. Lemongrass appears toward the end. Ends with a peppery bite, again like hot sauce. Full bodied, a bit too sweet. Iím trying not to show a bias against Widmer and imagined this being another one of Dogfish Headís "off-centered ales", but I didnít find much enjoyment in it.

22ox bottle. Pours orange, minimal head. Aroma is of sour grapes. Kinda bad belgian. Taste is sour, kinda grapey. Little citrus present. Really, really underwhelming.

Pours an orange-y yellow color. Aroma has no punch especially when you get that first sip that is a big hit of grape followed by notes of citrus and the spice side-effect of the lemongrass. It is growing on me. Probably better really cold.

Sampled on 12/3/2011. This wheat beer pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing. The aroma is cereal, Muscat grapes, fruit and sweet. A light to medium bodied wheat beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, with lots of Muscat grape flavor, there is a hint of lemongrass at the finish. The hops are herbal and earthy. Light carbonation. Interesting blend of flavors. I like the way the Muscat grapes mix and blend with the wheat/malts and the lemongrass. A touch of grape tannins at the finish. Overall it a touch sweet but it works. Hides the 9% alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
