Nice little wheat beers. Light on hops, strong on spice of orange peel and a light fruityness. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 24, 2006
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear golden orange color. It turned cloudy when I stirred up the sediment on the bottom of the bottle. The head was bubbly, white and reduced quickly to a lasting thin layer of foam. There was some lace on the glass at the end. Pleasant yeasty bread dough aroma with a touch of citrus. Tart up front with a strange grainy bitterness that mellowed in the middle giving way to slightly sweet bready malt. Finishes dry and grainy. So so.

Decent frothy white head with very good carbonation. Head settles slowly and remains for a while. Nice malty aroma with a little wheat and honey. Light floral hops aroma in there also. Medium golden brown in color. Light malty sweetness in the flavor. Hint of roasted grains and wheat. Really very little wheat. Quite the tasty and balanced brew. Very little grit and no grassy notes. Little bit of bready malts. I would almost consider this to be a amber ale. Finishes clean with very little dryness. A pretty darn good and easy drinking brew. illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Well, I am flying out tomorrow morning early, and I swore that I was not going to drink. But I am not tired, and I need a night cap...or two. Pours a translucent golden orange with a thin fizzy white head. Strong yeast and clovey aroma. Nice soft mouthfeel. Considering the age of this, I suspect this lost some residual sweetness. Flavor of toasted grain, wheat, and a hint of fruitiness. Mild spicy bitterness on the finish. Interesting beer. An american wheat with a belgian twist. I wonder what this was like fresh. Thanks to Landseer for giving this to me so I could complete the Wheat Series beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2006
(07.17.06) 12 oz brown bottle from Archer Liquors, Chicago, IL. Lot 7083. Slight sweet malt aroma. Poured clear dark golden with small white head. Slight carbonation. Light-to-medium bodied beer that starts with light malt sweetness and fruity flavors. Finished with light malt fade. No discernable hop presence. Very good drinkable wheat beer. I preferred this ale over Bell’s wheat four and six.

Bottle from Jay (springslicker) Thanks! Pours out a bright orange color without much of a head on it. Smell is sweet, oranges, lemon, spices, and some malts. Taste is smooth and sweet, with a little hoppy flavors protruding out. Good beer, that went well while sitting outside on the beach. The first of the 4 wheat series that I am going to have today. Not too shabby, I think I like the wheat love better though. aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2006
possibly my favorite from the wheat series. I love this beer. Perfect combination of wheat malts and yeasts. Great sweet flavor, full but not overbearing. Refreshing, and little bitterness. drywallman (367) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2006
This one had everyting a good basic wheat beer needs: The amber yellow color, the lasting white head, the fruity yeast working with the chewy, grainy wheat, and respectable ’mellow’ hops signature. These go down way too easily. hopscotch (11242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Bottle... Lightly hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose is fruity and grainy with a malty note of honey. Mildly phenolic with whispers of smoke and spice. Moderately sweet flavor. Grainy with a pinch of salt. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Finishes crisp and mostly clean. Thanks to headbanger for sending the bottle!

12oz bottle- An orange with a good white head and has an aroma of citrus and banana. Taste of strong alcohol on the front end but then invites some wheat flavor. Not bad after the initial taste.
