chinchill (5340) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2017
On tap at the brewpub as Randy’s Grand Cru. Clear golden amber body with a minimal head. Mild but style appropriate aroma. The flavor follows with less obvious Belgian yeast effects and more sweet malts than expected. Moderate hop level for style. Smooth, near medium body.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2013
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Brewvival Trip Beer 55. Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow color with no head. Weak aroma of bread, citrus and caramel. The taste is bread, caramel, citrus and a spicy finish. Medium bodied. 5000th USA rating!

Quite tasty, like a blue moon but slightly bolder...good characteristics but looks average

beernovice39 (3269) - Idaho, USA - JUN 9, 2010
On tap at Aiken Brewing. A very clear golden pour with tiny white head. Scent is citrus. Taste has a subtle spicey taste. Nice if you enjoy the style

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Golden-yellow with good lacing. Light nose of orange blossom. Medium bodied with round mouth feel. Slight orange on palate as well as wheat. Short, wheat finish. A little different-not bad.

3.7
decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Gold with just a hint of red and a foamy off white head and lace. Large brown sugar, sweet maltiness and abv on the nose. Spiced sweet flavor with some fruit, cherries I think. Very nice full bodied beer with good carbonation.

3.2
jcwattsrugger (12549) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2009
on tap-pours a disappearing white head and gold color. Aroma is sweet medium malt. Taste is sweet medium malt, fruity, some spice hops. Close to a bock/mai bock.

3.3
SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Sample at GABF 2007. Cloudy golden color with a frothy white head that diminishes rapidly when swirled. Mild clove banana ester, perhaps a suggestion of bubble gum. Flavor was somewhat lemony with a small dollop of balancing sweetness. A bit thin in body to be remarkable.

nearbeer (5636) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Draft pint. Golden, mostly clear with medium head that diminished fairly rapidly. Aroma is citrus and spice - maybe coriander. Taste is similar, and very much like a Blue Moon, but smoother. Nice spring and summer refresher, but not enough body or wheat-yeast flavor to suit my Hoegaarden-esque tastes.
