Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Bready and toffee sweet aroma with flowery notes and light spices. The flavor has sweet caramel malt, light bready notes, light flowery hops, and a hint of yeast. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of kiefdog. This 750mL pours hazy deep gold with white head. It has soft aromatic notes of sweet light skinned fruit, some malt graininess and a sense of spice. The taste is similar with a seemingly wheat softened palate ushering up smooth sweet fruit notes like apples and pears to go along with sweet malts, a bit of graininess and subtle yeasty spices. Nice easy drinkin’ brew.

Dark gold, thin white suds. Some sesame nuttiness, metal and coriander in the nose. Quite a pleasantly dry, metallic, faintly spicy Belgian wannabe.

Draft at the Seattle International Beerfest. Clear gold body with a thin white head. Nice lemon and grass nose. Well balanced attack. Lots of lemon and grass and gloral notes on the mid-palate. Nice and light. Not much finish. Hides the alcohol well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Misakenly rated this under Sebourg Biere de Garde Blonde on 6/3/04 due to confusion brought on by this previously being labeled as an American Wheat and the other having a picture of the same label (now since corrected)
Dark yellow fading to orange hazy pour with a sticky, but thin white head. Delectable aroma of peaches and apricots. Good, thick mouthfeel with some tanginess and back end spiciness. Flavor has elements of apricots as well with a bit of coriander in the aftertaste. Goes down very smooth. Impressed.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of coriander, plastic, and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Unpleasant from start to finish...plasticky, dirty tasting, watery, blah.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly clouded gold beer with a white soapy head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma is small and nondescript but offers some yeast and wheat notes. A dry bitterness is the first thing tasted. There is also some bubblegum, spice, pear, and funky earthiness. Peppery feel and that bitterness is long lasting. This style is always interesting and this beer fits right in. Unique but not a great beer.
