shonobiwan (219) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a light brown color with a little sediment floating around. Lots of white fluffy white head and slight lacing. Aroma was wheaty with a hint of banana and spice. Taste was actually quite great. There was the initial spice and fruitiness you get from a wheat beer followed by generous amount of hops. Drank this while cooking so could not enjoy it entire grandeur but it was an decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrBeerFanatic (1065) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a pillowed head. Aromas of citrusy/spicy hops, and grapefruit. Flavors of citrus (hint of pine), light caramel backbone, light grapefruit. Medium sweet, slightly watery feel. Almost a hint of sourness(strange). Lightly bitter. More of a sweeter wheat that drinks much like an ipa minus the alcohol.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 29.06.2013, tap @ The Pony Bar NY:
Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh, light malts, hops, leafs, newly cut lawn, hints of pine needles. Taste is slightly fruity, light malts, fresh hops, newly cut lawn, leafs, hints of dried fruits. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. No idea what this beer has to do with a witbier/wheat. Bummer!

jgb9348 (6388) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Crisp hazy golden coloured body with a thin one centimetre tall pure white head with a gold tint. Aroma of nice wheat, tons of bright grassy hops, a little alcohol and a good amount of citrus. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong lemony and citrus flavour with a pungent grassy and herbal hop kick, some lighter wheat and minor sugars, a hint of coriander seed freshness and a finish of earthy notes. Aftertaste shows some honey, a bit of herbs and spices, but mainly just wheat and some lemon notes. Overall, a good beer with some nice flavours surrounding the wheat and hops, as an easy-to-drink beer for the summer. Nice to try and recommended if you can find it. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 06-July-2013 for US$1.34 sampled at home in Washington on 15-July-2013.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle. Golden yellow color. Foamy white head. Thick hop aroma with citrus and pine. A little bit of lemon mixed in with pine and crisp hops. Reminded me of a cross between summer ale and ipa.

HeadyDE (859) - Delaware, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle pour into wheat glass leaves 2 finger head..light golden color..nose is quite fruity with obvious traces of pear..honeydew..and raspberry..active carbonation..mouthfeel is kind of disappointing because doesn’t have as much complexity..slight banana presence on finish..but a bit thin overall..if you like a fruity American wheat offering this might be more appealing..

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity base, light wheaty and bready notes, with a light fruity finish. Not bad.
