Cloudy orange color,small white head that had a short life then faded to a slight lace.The aroma was wheaty and yeasty with a decent citrus side to it.Kind of sourish thing going on here with a decent citrus side and a nice wheat taste to go along with the very mild hops.I kind of detect a bit of some caramel but then maybe i’m just imagining it.Not a very good wheat at all,but worth a try any way,maybe someone else likes it. yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Minor eruption on the open, and then it got bad.. Poured a full glass of foam. Couldn’t drink it from the bottle because it was too fizzy and foamed up in the mouth. After the foam settled down in the glass, the beer was flat. The flavor wasn’t bad, but neither was it good. Wheaty, astringent, hoppy. Any first year homebrewer could do better than this. This is unaccepatable for a commercial beer. Sure glad I bought a single instead of a six. Undrinkable. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Hazy yellow-orange body, thin off-white head. Tangy, wheaty, somewhat off-putting aroma. Yeasty body, tangy and fruity, but rather thin, with a somewhat harsh finish. A bit funky in an undesirable way, but not too offensive and certainly not disgusting. Just a boring, unnecessarily dull American Wheat. obxdude10 (2367) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2005
Not a very good wheat beer at all, very disappointing, really the only good thing about this beer was its appearance, it looked the part, but that was about it, hazy & cloudy dark yellow color, that was the best part of this beer, everything else was well-below par, there was virtually no head, a very subtle bubble gum & clove nose, but it didn’t jump out like a lot of other wheat beers, the body was too light, not crisp enough, not enough in the flavors, bland & somewhat tasteless, watery finish, not good at all

eww! no wonder it’s retired... smells like feet and it tastes like bad sour fruit. no. well, it doesn’t taste like it’s infected, but it’s certainly a turn-off. and hey, it does look and feel good, but the flavor and aroma doesn’t pair well and both do not offer much justice. so, no. herbal lemon sourness is not what i want. drainpour.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a fizzy white head that quickly goes to a thin collar and then disappears completely.KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2005
It’s aroma is sweet malt and wheat and some DMS. Smells a lot like a macro.
The flavor is rather bland. Some sweetness, lemoney citrus and a touch of honey with a slight bitterness at the end. As it warmed, I could pick up a little yeastiness. It has a harsh carbonated mouthfeel.
Overall, a bland and disappointing beer from an otherwise excellent brewer. I can see why they stopped producing this.
This beer starts out sweet and wheaty but finishes like a piece of sushi. Interesting combination. Don’t forget to try the saltwater eel. Nuffield (4189) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2004
At the time I am drinking this, it is a "retired" beer, which seems odd since it seems easily available in at least two states (MN and TX). Perhaps the production has ended. At any rate, it pours with a slightly hazy, moderately dark yellow with a decent head of white, and very fast-moving bubbles in the body. The aroma is all Budweiser, with some sweet corn and cardboard being the most distinguishing notes, and then perhaps a bit of honey and vanilla. The flavor is more citrus in nature, and the palate is softer than I expected of it, flowing rather satisfyingly in my mouth. Not terrible in every dimension but too muted of flavors. piscator34 (2622) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
Gold and cloudy in colour. Strange aroma combo of orange blossom, honey, and perhaps throw-up...yuck. It tastes a bit better than it smells, with some citrus notes, but it’s just too damn sweet to be even remotely good. shadey (2149) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Milky golden pour with hardly any head. Has that same wheat beer flavor that my palate doesn’t much like. Wasn’t terribly impressed, but big thanks to Kawa or I wouldn’t have had the chance to try it.
