Hazy yellow body topped by a very foamy white head. The aroma is wheat, citrus, banana, and light clove. The flavor is nutty wheat lightly sweet. Some spicy and bitter hops kicks in late. Light body. Decent wheat but pretty plain overall. sbrewno (49) - Frankfort, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Tap, Palmer’s. Orange vanilla scents on the first whiff. Lighter orange, hazy yellow appearance. This one tastes a little like some true Belgian whites, but not over the top. Not my favorite style by any means, but a good beer. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 Tap-Old Chicago. Much deserved re-rate. Hazy golden-orange, huge white fluffy head. Big yeasty nose. Chewy bread, citrus and spice/coriander. Flavor on par, bread, banana, orange, coriander and I swear there is some kind of floral hop ester in the finish. Big chewy mouthfeel. Very nice session brew.

mirky yellow sediment, basically no head retention, great yeasty aroma, bready flavor, sweet bitter finish, really good mouthfeel for the first few seconds, and then it like melts into water... or something. DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Thanks to BBB63 for this. Pours turbid straw colored with a creamy white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, cloves, and hopcit. Tastes fruity, with wheat, yeast, clove, and some orange in the finish. Medium palate with a vibrant carbonation, acidic fruit burst, and creeping musty yeast esters at end palate.

Bottle pours a cloudy pale yellow, mediocre frothy white head, light lacing, with very light carbonation. Yeasty/bready aroma, hints of corriander and lemon. Quite yeasty on the tongue, light corriander but lots of lemon and light fruit. Medium body with an mild mouthfeel. Lingering spices, with a clean finish. Not my idea of a Winter brew, but decent nonetheless. Thanks goes out to MrFacto for the trade! Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2004
An interesting blending of wheat styles, this poured a hazy straw color with a foamy white head that vanished in a flash. Nice banana & grass/grain aroma with a touch of spicy sweetness. Soft mouthfeel. Good spices, banana, vanilla, mild malt flavors. A good drink, but it seems more suited to humid summer weather. leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 Pours a hazy straw like color. The aroma is sweet accompanied by lemons, orange, spice, and yeast. Light bodied with spice and citrus flavors dominating, and an underlying presence of yeast and hops. The finish is a mild bitterness. This one reminds me more of summer. However, it is a welcome change from many of those darker, heavier, spiced winter concoctions. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Very hazy pastel orangey body with a smallish white head. Aroma is yeasty with a touch of citrusy lemon or orange peel? Smells like a cross between a hefe and a tripel. Flavour reminds me a bit of Black Oak Saison in a way that makes me wonder if its the same yeast strain. Flavour is sweet with a tart wheaty finish. Tastes like it has more alcohol than it does. Thanks for sharing this rudolf. steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 4, 2004
