By far the best of the summer beers. Crisp and refreshing. Goes great with seafood dishes.

A yummy wheat beer-very good for the summer. I had this one on tap and fortunately I did not get an orange in it when it was served to me. Nice frtuiy aroma. It was a cloudy lemony color with a nice white head. This one was very easy to drink.

A solid witbier. Although I get a little upset every time I order a draft, and the bartender places an orange in it. Nice cloudy golden color with some floaties. The head is a bright white and very creamy. Aroma is of wheat and citrus (even without the orange). Wheat is defintely present, and so is lemon and some spice, which rounds out the aftertaste. It is a light verison of a witbier, but still solid noetheless, perfect for a warm summer day.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2005 Tap. Nice aroma. I enjoy wheat beers in the summertime but I was a bit disappointed with this one. The flavor was a bit light. Some nutmeggy spiciness but I probably wouldnt buy it again. A lot of hype and not a lot of flavor.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Strong wheaty aroma. Big creamy head that tastes very smooth on the tongue and gives a milk-mustache (beer mustache?). Taste was not as enjoyable as the aroma. Mostly reminiscent of a hefe, with a bit of spice. Palete was a bit thin for my tastes.

Bottle. Pours a very light hazy color. Big foamy white head. Big grainy/yeasty aroma with a hint of lemon. Slighly sweet flavor. Mild flavor of a hefe. A touch of spice and a slightly bitter finish. Goes down quite easily but I wouldnt get too excited about this stuff.

This was a very average beer, especially for its price. It was too light and seemed like an America light in the form of a white. However, it still had a decent smell and appearance. Nevertheless, its taste was very ordinary. The Allagash White is a better offering in my opinion.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 Draught at The Half Moon in Putney, a cloudy and very pale yellow with a white foamy head. Aroma is a tangy orange, maybe some corriander, but more sweet and yeastish. Over-carbonated in the mouth, with a sharp and tart palate. The citrus and wheat flavours that do get through are pleasing however.

On tap on McGradys Pub, I have to say up front I was well into the night when I had this and was feeling good. That being said..Aroma was nice, orange not too sweet. Appeared a hazy yellow like lemonade. Flavor was airy citrus and spice. Sugary light palate. Very refreshing. I really enjoyed it. Dont forget to ditch the lemon they serve with it.

Nicely hazy, not overly cloudy yellow, big white bottle conditioned head, leaving a nice lace, nice steady fine bubbled bead. Interesting nose...spice/yeast/citrus fruit very nice and complex, yet fresh and mouthwatering. Has this always been this sweet? Its been a while since I tasted this, but that was a surprise, sugary rather than malty...finish is spicy and there is an acidity that lingers..not unpleasant, and overall, nice refreshing beer...that sweetness annoys tho!
