Aholmb1 (134) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - APR 28, 2013
Appearance: hazy yellow color, about a one inch head, good amount of lacing on the glass, head dissolves fairly quickly but still leaves a nice foam on top Aroma: lemon aroma, light and refreshing Taste: lemon comes through in the flavor but its not overwhelming the wheat flavor , bitterness at the end, light body Palette: tingles on tongue, leaves a bitterness flavor Overall: this would be a great summer beer, the lemon flavor is definitely present in the beer but I expected it to me a little bit more lemony, very easy beer to drink and relax with ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask offering to a shaker at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL., showing a murky, dirty gold color, with a modest, but fluffy & persistent layer of soft white head foam, and light lacing on the glass. The nose was soft wheat, and some light lemon & peel that presented a slight artificial scent. Expected modest, firkin carbonation, but perceived even lower effervescence that prompted a notion of light body, with somewhat washed out texture. A low, peppery bitterness spiced up the taste a little. No pizzazz, and not thrilled.

Martinus (4732) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2015
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of lemon juice, lemonade and malts. Malty sweet flavour, wheat, lemon zest. Finish malts, yeast and lemon zest.
(From 35.5cL bottle @ After GBBF tasting, chriso’s place, London ’14. Thanks for sharing, rb crew!)

LetsGoState (913) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Appearance is medium white head with hazy yellow. Aroma is a bland malt with a hint of wheat. Taste is exactly the same. Overall a little disappointing.

Palidor19 (3194) - Brandon, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Lots of malt, though it says lemon I'm getting very little. Mild soap with frothy taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HuskerTan (2449) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle/Fest. A- Lemon, wheat. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Lemon, soapy, wheat. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly sweet finish. O- A pretty average wheat with a decent about of lemon. Not too artificial tasting and not as overpowering as some other Abita fruit beers. Decent.

crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2015
335ml bottle. Lightly hazed gold pour, fizzy white head. Aroma is mostly bready, some lemon. Flavor brings far more lemon, wheat, and some herbs, light refreshing, ultimately uninteresting.

DocJitsu (2060) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Pours a clear light golden color with a creamy white head. Wheat malt nose with a tangy citrus quality. Nice mouthfeel. Full, creamy, and ample carbonation. Earthy wheat malt flavor. Lemon juice notes.

DCLawyer (2931) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2015
4oz draft at Spacebar. Cloudy yellow with bare white head. Faint aroma of citrus and floor cleaner. Taste is lemon, grass, wheat, and soap. Not a fan.
