At first taste... one of the best beers Iíve had. Lemony and wheaty and very refreshing. Almost like a summer beer except for the icey, fresh mouth.

Pours to a meringue white head with a hazy straw gold body. Tons of visible carbonation. The aroma is huge. Wheat, clove, yeast, spices. The flavor is wheat and reminds me of a Hacker Pshorr. There is pineapple and spicy yeastiness. Overall, a well made beer. Not experimental enough, however. It needs to be more spicy. It is a winter beer...

Rich cloudy gold. Sharp clove and coriander aroma. Good strong wheat in the flavor. Fairly solid witbier.

This grew on me as I slowly enjoyed itís charms. Hazy golden vastly frothy and fairly carbonated. Balanced clove spice alongside pineapple and banana and doughy yeastiness. Nice smooth drinkability with more fruitiness than I expected. Sweet lingering finish that thickly coats the mouth. Nice.

Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of stronger yeast, bananas and some spices. Tastes of wheat, yeast, lightly fruity and spices. Lighter body.

Cloudy, orange appearance with a small head and very little lacing. Vinous aroma, similiar to a pinot grigio that I sampled recently. The fruit in the taste turned more citrusy, paired up with some spicyness. Dry, crisp, medium bodied mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation.

Great beer. Bottle from a sample case. Nose was of wheaty oranges and lemons. Appearance was a standard yellowish cloudy hue without a huge head. The best part was the flavor. Candied bananas, pineapple, sweet dough, and some spicy citrus. Texture was a smooth oily explosion of beer. I loved it. The hops and malts balanced nicely. I really enjoyed this beer. Although it is their winter brew I wholeheartedly enjoyed it in mid July.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2005 Bottle: A fantasic beer! The spice in the flavor suprised me for a white, although it was a smooth and refreshing as any white Iíve had. There was some definite clove in the taste and maybe a liuttle dough as well. The appearence was fairly standard though, but that was the only real drawback, although the lacing was impressive and constant throughout.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Pours a hazy light yellow with a small bit of fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet hay, spices, and sugary fruit. Flavor is very yeasty and fruity, though not in a good way. Sweetness is too overpowering and there is little in the way of balance. Overall, not my favorite.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2005
a light golden color w/ a thin white head and some nice sign of carbonation. a straw scent w/ yeast and cinammon a tiny bit of fruity but Iím not sure what that was. Palate is pretty middle of the road w/ a nice carbonation. Flavor is a bit belgian an odd fruit sweetness a yeasty flavor and a spicy cinamony taste. Pretty good stuff.
