3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ Founders during Michigan trip. Pours a slightly hazy yellow/golden color with a small fizzy white head. The aroma is fruity (citrus and some banana), light floral, and some biscuity malt. The flavor is biscuity malt, light citrus, and light floral. Not the best of the bunch, but would be drinkable in the summer while mowing the grass.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very cloudy light yellow color. Fizzy white head. Lots of citris and banana in aroma, and banana creaminess in taste. Hardly any malty, wheat flavor. Not too bad.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good beer for a change. When your drinking IPA’s, Pale Ales and Stouts all day, this is a good "break" beer if your spending a lot of time (and money) at Founders. Will defintaly be having some more of this. Great for the summer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of white colored foamy mostly diminishing fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind a hazy yellow colored body with no visible carbonation. The aroma was floral with malty doughy notes and the mouth feel was tingly initially with a mellowing finish. The flavor was mellow with malt and dough notes. After a few sips, the mouth feel became strongly tingly throughout.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at FBC. Small white head that completely dissipated, fine, small & medium sized bubbles, fair lacing, cloudy, and a yellow hue. Hoppy and banana aroma. Flavor was acidic, sour and hoppy. Hoppy palate and light body. Disappointing and did not meet my expectations for this style. Would like to try this one again since this brew received decent ratings from the other raters.

Draft at Founders. Hazy yellow hue with a small white head that was mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Moderate yeasty wheat aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture. Light bitter sweet flavor with short bitter finish. Very refreshing wheat beer with a bite.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Founders. Hazy peach body, thin off-white head. Aroma of coriander and light breadiness. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel with light notes of coriander and bready malts, little in the way of tanginess, fruitiness, or bitterness. Quite light and unassuming but quaffable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
a cloudy and hazy appearance (orangish yellow) with no head...nice and carbonated, and very similar to a whit beer...aroma of hops and honey...flavor of a whit beer as well (grapefruit and lemony hops)...somewhat harsh on the palate, but that sometimes seems to go with the style

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2005 I think this was gunning for Bell’s Oberon. Hazy, golden. Fair amount of carbonation. Crisp, dry finish. As with some of Founders other Belgian offerings, this one fell a little short of expectation.
