UPDATED: DEC 24, 2010 Tap. Pale Yellow and White in color, like the old life-saver flavor, with a white fluffy head. Spicy and citrus aroma, including orange and lemon, wintergreen. Refreshing and light to the palate. Higher carbonation, but not harsh at all. Citrus and spice flavors, such as orange and wintergreen. Slight bitterness, sourness, but brief. A little wheatiness as well. Nice, refreshing whit beer and widely available. Tranquillity (2504) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 Fine wheat beer, extremely soft on the palate. Orangy flavors, but needs to be served cold. Available on tap in the centre of Helsinki. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2006

no head, pretty weak aroma. strong carbonation makes this *refreshing.* originally the flavor surprised me, but now that i’ve had more beers of this type i think this is a pretty good example of the style. jolly pumpkin’s bam biere is similar but a little more flavorful. ghorsche (48) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 7, 2006
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. magicsloth (10) - USA - MAR 3, 2006
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. clueo (181) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2006
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!!

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 it’s style but I’m afraid I’m not so struck. XtraStout (46) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2006
Well I have to say that I’m 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 I’ve had recently. I can imagine that this beer would go beautifully with a non-spicy simple meal, perhaps a steak and garden salad.
