Draft at MBGSF 2011. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate wheat citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

No Black Lotus’ strongest. Somewhat light, but also too much lemon in it. I’d say a bit overboard with the citrus.

Sample at the brewpub on 7/23/11. Hazy yellow/orange pour with a thin white head. Typical hefe nose of banana, clove and wheat. Banana and clove flavor with a bit of pepper before a dry finish. I just can’t seem to acquire a taste for this style, try as I may.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Very good wheat ale on tap at the brewery, hazy gold color very similar to the apricot wheat minus the fruit

On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy pale gold pour. Bubble gum aroma, candy, wheat. Yeasty bubble gum leads flavor, wheat. It’s pretty well done, really.

Draft. The pour is very hazy and yellow with a huge head. The aroma is full of citrus. The taste is more sweet than bitter, refreshing and better than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow! I have never had a wheat beer with as strong a banana ester as this one. Dominates the aroma as well with undertone of citrus and cardamon. Pale yellow color with slightly hazy pour.

Tap. Very solid wheat. Unfiltered. Surprisingly coffee-like nose. Great banana and clove. Refreshing and full.

An aroma of clementine, toasted wheat, vanilla, and for some reason, coffee? Appears opaque orange and unfiltered, thick foam after the pour. Tastes like citrus, caramel, some clove, and a touch of grapefruit bitterness. Palate is ordinary. Overall, a very nice wheat.
