no head, pretty weak aroma. strong carbonation makes this *refreshing.* originally the flavor surprised me, but now that ive had more beers of this type i think this is a pretty good example of the style. jolly pumpkins bam biere is similar but a little more flavorful.

33cl bottle. Poured cloudy pineapple yellow into a shaker glass with a 1-finger creamy white head (rapidly diminishing). Nose is spicy and fruity with a not-unpleasant whisper of DMS. Very crisp. Flavor is lightly bitter with coriander and a hint of DMS. The orange peel comes through in the short finish. Lightly sweet grainy malt flavor. Could be a little sweeter to offset the bitter/sour citrus peel, but this is a minor complaint. Light body with pleasant carbonation. Very refreshing! Better as cold refreshment than any of the bottled hefeweizens I have tried.

Draft. Cloudy white pour with small white head. A citrusy, wheat aroma. A fresh citrusy taste to it also. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.

Lovely cloudy yellow color. Looks like a beer that should be drank on a hot summer day (although right now it is frigid and it tastes fine). Somewhat fruity, a nice bite on the front of the tongue but a very nice finish.

Nice light yellow color with a great head. Unfiltered and has a great look. While this beer is great anytime of year, it is particulary enjoyable on a nice summer day in a glass with a slice of lemon. Defintily one of my favorite beers!!

Fin (10060) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2006
Bottle. hazy straw colored beer with a large white frothy head. Citrus and spice aromas are transfered through to the taste and a hint of ginger in there. I accept that others rave about this beer and maybe it is an excellent example of its style but Im afraid Im not so struck.

Well I have to say that Im genuinely impressed. I had this beer from a bottle and drank it from something of a chalice. The first sip was decieving and as the beer level in my glass dropped my like for it heightened. You can taste ever so faintly spome wonderful spices that I cannot identify but that give it a marvelous taste. A SPLENDID finish. One of the best Ive had recently. I can imagine that this beer would go beautifully with a non-spicy simple meal, perhaps a steak and garden salad.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2006
On tap at a local pub. Nice citrusy aroma with some light spice that included coriander and a bit of clove. Color is a pale and cloudy, pastel yellow with an inch tall white head. Nice and simple flavor with some light malt and a nice citrus and spice twist about halfway through a drink. Nice and refreshing, enjoyable with my food.

Pours a hazy golden straw, with a good amount of particles. A large, frothy white head slowly reduced to a thick, solid white film that left a great lacing. Strong aroma of straw, cooked corn, and a slight mold a dry haystack on a warm summer day. The aroma is clearly one of the foremost aspects of drinking this beer and one gets the feeling you either love it or hate it. Soft yet clearly present carbonation with a slightly oily palate. A very appealing and substantive taste of corn and muted clove, undercooked bread, long lasting wheat finish. Almost no bitterness. An ideal relaxing and refreshing beer for a hot summer day. Overall a very well made beer. Cant go wrong here at all.
