This beer is just plain good. It’s very smooth and never leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. The appearance is very beautiful. It has a cloudy charachteristic to it. Once again Rowland’s saves the day with the half gallon. Blatz King (150) - Whitewater, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2001
Very pretty golden color. Taste is sort of bland, but the aftertaste makes you want more. Another great beer from Calumet. Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2001
A beer with few hops, but a real nice malty definition, a good moderate aftertaste common of a wheat beer. Overall: a good beer to drink in half gallon jugs and not be afraid to get to tanked GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2002
different than most wheats, this one is not something that would benefit with citrus addition. Much darker than most wheats I’ve seen. Cloudy copper brew with a THICK off white, lumpy head. Lots of malt, of course. Caramel and more caramel. So Smooth and creamy, but cleans off the palate so well. This is a problem because the beer’s tendency to disappear is increased multifold times. A wheat lager, pretty cool, yet it was unfamiliar territory. Not your usual citrucy, clovey wheat, but a distinctively different and unique cretion. Oh yeah, and it’s really good too!

Ok, so this beer was late in the night, thus I really don’t remember a lot about it other then it was good.

This was a darker orange color than you would expect in a wheat. Both bitter and sweet, but without the strong citrus flavor that you usually find in this style. A nice surprise. Skyview (6055) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2007
Fourth stop during Wisconsin Trip #2 and one of 11 brews offered at this small town brewpub. Pours a hazy light coppery amber with a heavy off-white foam head. Very nice lacing. Aroma has malted wheat, caramel, with a touch of citrus. Taste is smooth and not so much yeast and gritty wheat malt compared to other weisens. Don’t even think of placing a lemon slice with this one. It does not need one. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

clear amber, fine beige head, wispy lace,
sweet malt aroma with a candied caranel character,
lots of sweet caramelized munich malt flavor, light bitterness adds some balance but it’s the malt that makes this beer,
Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 7/10; Overall: 15/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/24/07: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a frothy clingy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet caramely wheat and a hint of doughy yeast. Body starts with a rich caramel toffee wheatiness and smooth lightly earthy Hallertau hop bitterness. A nice, full-bodied sweet wheat beer.
