ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2003
A big floral nose. No head a cloudly yellow bronze with a bit of lemon in the flavor, but also something unidentifiable, something not good. It tasted skunked but it wasn't. I wouldn't order it again.

ericnixon (745) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2003
On tap in Cambridge, MA. One of my least-favorite styles of beer, but i didn't mind this one so much. It wasn't overpowering at all, kinda mellow, actually. mine didn't come with a lemon wedge (yay!).

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 27, 2002
Draft in Manchester, CT. Cloudy peach. Creamy white head. Medium light body. Smooth and crisp. Apples and bananas and light citrus, sans lemon slice. Mild fruit notes. Sharper and cleaner than expected but a good example.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 7, 2002
On Tap 7/6/02 Cambridge, MA: As I saw it listed on the chalkboard, I thought that it would be a typical American wheat. Lucky this was much more German in style. Weak, but nice banana/clove aroma, hazy yellow color, bold flavor, ends a little acidic. It comes with a lemon by default, so let them know that you don’t swing that way.
