Pours a hazy light orange. Smells of orange and wheat. It is nice and bready, and spiced with citrus hops. It is all capped off with a dry smooth finish.

JoeMcPhee (9451) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2006
Tap. Hazy golden beer, thin white head. Very faint wheaty aroma with some light citrus and a bit of breadiness. Flavour is very wheaty with lemony citrus and some earthy/spicy yeastiness. Very soft phenolics and some peachy/fruity notes. Lingering spicy hop finish.

3.6
BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 24, 2006
Bottle: Pours a light yellow color with nice head and lacing. Nose of light toasty and hop, some malt and light citrus, faint wheat. The flavor has a nice full body and a solid mouthfeel with more wheat than the nose along with a tangy characteristic that wasn’t there before. Nice vitamin c type finish, light malt sweetness, good body. Nice all around wheat, but no similarities with the german counterpart.

Dorwart (2603) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2006
Decent bright white head of fine bubbles. Good carbonation. Strange composty aroma with some grass and yeast. Maybe some light fruit. Color is a hazy golden orange. Kind of dry bland flavor. Little bit of yeast and wheat and kind of gritty. Little bit of sickly sweetness to it. This seems to hit me on a bunch of wheat brews. They just don’t sit all that well in my stomach. Finish is dry and pretty clean with a after palate similar to that of a eating a crisp apple.

12oz @ Kalamazoo brewery: Pours a very cloudy yellow-orange color, almost no head, white, lasting. Effervescent, hoppy aroma. Clean wheat taste, fresh nutty aftertaste. Effervescent, somewhat spicy.

2.7
screigh (749) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Pours a typical hazy wheat color. Small head that died down quickly. Smells of wheat with an orange hint. Slightly off sour wheat taste. While this is quite smooth and would be decent for a summer beer I do not think it live up to the hype.

3.7
marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2006
The orange ice cream of beer. Opaque orange color with sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Good flavor and very drinkable. Spicy, fruity, good wheat flavor. The aroma was a little weak though.

hindan02 (24) - macomb, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2006
it has a wonderfully sweet smell an is usually accompnied with an orange . although not the best summer brew ive had , it does have the best colour , it looks like a summer sunset , yes i said it..it has a clean and refreshing finish . but because it is so hyped up in michigan it is not as good as we are to belive.

aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Very good, but not quite up to the hype. Tap is excellent, smooth, almost an ideal beer considering the sweetness, wheat-overtones, bitterness, etc. Bottle is not bad ...but it’s just not that great. There are better summer brews.

3.3
Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2006
a decent wheat beer, very refreshing. poured a hazy yellow with a white head. aromas of hops and subtle esters. nice mouthfeel and good flavor. good wheat, nothing special, but good.
