mtlasley (39) - Anna, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Zon pours a stiffly cloudy bright yellow. An incredibly active head is just about two fingers high, very soapy on the top and disappears quickly. Theres a thickness when held up to the light. lacing is mild but present. The nose is forward with a creamy wheat scent followed by the spice of Belgian yeast. Notes of bananas, cloves, and orange followed by a light bread scent. Theres also a light tartness here. Very Belgian with a light tart flavor up front followed by a peek of orange and spiciness. Bread and creamy wheat start up next but everything closes exceptionally clean. Creamy but carried extremely well. Just the perfect amount of carbonation A wonderful example of the witbier style and the first one Ive really loved. Something easy that I could drink anyday.

Not a bad Belgian wheat though the ending doesnt really do it for me. Slightly bitter, little Belgian spices. A little thin on the body too.

BeerBunker (965) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours murky orange with a fizzy white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles, and a fair amount of sediment. Aroma is of wheat, spice, citrus, and malt. Taste starts off with lots of lemon zest, and almost immediately ends there. There is a big taste of lemon, with a little bit of wheat, and then all the flavor drops off right away. Only the slightest lingering taste of citrus. Mouthfeel is sticky, and almost feels watery. Body is thin, but very carbonated. Its basically lemon flavored water. Big disappointment.

Pour is cloudy straw. Unfilitered with a citrus zip. Very easy drinking summer brew. Fans of Boulevard Wheat will enjoy this seasonal treat.

Aurelius (5215) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Sensuous nose - fruity, mustardy, salty, pencil shavings, some stale (unburned) cigar wrapper. A quickly-dissipating, beady white head. Pours white-yellow. Squat 12 oz bottle, good label. Bland flavor -- underbittered, not spicy, not fruity or yeasty. Such a disappointment after the aroma. Flaccid body. Some fruity redemption in the finish and aftertaste. Lazy Dog Growler.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Taste coriander, citrus, lemon. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is coriander and a bit of citrus. Flavor is fairly crisp with a bit of citrus and spice. Light on the palate, fairly refreshing. Wife: 3.6

Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler - 12 oz bottle. Hazy light gold pour, no head. Light spiciness in the aroma with coriander. Flavor is refreshing with some light lemony notes, some coriander spiciness, some yeasty notes in the back end. Thick enough mouthfeel.
