The aroma is malty and slightly funky with a fruity/honey wine quality as well as an herbal citrus quality. The appearance is light hazy gold - orange with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with lots of alcohol. The palate is medium. Overall itís interesting but not great.

Pours deep gold into a tulip. Off-white head with little retention recedes to hug rim and pool surface. Sweet white grape juice and lemon aromas. Thin with sweet wheat and grapes upfront turning to lemon in the lasting dusty finish.

Bomber shared by Mike, thanks man! Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium white head. An odd nose of lemongrass and fruit. The flavor is almost dominated by the white grape juice, very odd and funky, a bit thin at times, juicy and some light lemongrass. OK.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, no head, and golden in color. The taste is wheat, lemons, and fruits. The taste is about the same with some tartness.

Alphadelic (1770) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Pale. A vinous, tart nose. Very wine-y, the lemongrass plays a surprisingly small part. Relaxed carbonation. Itís like a sweet wine but with an uplifting tang in the finish. Lighly oily and with a great belly-warmth. A little sweet and a little sickly in a bile kinda way. Probably the most wine-like beer I have ever had.

smith4498 (3087) - Miami, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with off white head. Aromas of wheat, citrus, grapes and sugar. Cloyingly sweet sugary flavor dominates. Faint wheat flavor with some grape juice and lemon. Full body with soft carbonation and a syrupy mouthfeel. Not light and refreshing like a typical wheat beer.

(22oz bottle, courtesy of Mora2000) Pours a clear yellow body with a spare white head. Aroma of lemon dish soap, wheat, and light florals. Flavor of lemongrass, vanilla, and wheat.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle thanks to mora2000. Surprised I hadnít rated this before. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a small white head. Aromas are floral, lemon-lime soda, honey, very sweet, artificial, lightly grainy. Flavors are metallic, wet dog, lemongrass, peppery, low citrus, honey, very sweet, chamomile, light tartness. Lively bubbles, warming, not great.

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.

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.
