   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2013 12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium amber with a small (less than 1 finger) white soapy head that receded down to a thin scattered film with poor lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt and a sweaty yeast with notes of wheat, citrus (orange) and a bit of coriander. The taste was about the same as the aroma with just a little orange zest and a hint of spice at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a yeasty citrus taste left behind. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and slightly creamy texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was an average Wheat Ale with a nice tasty and refreshing drinkability. Would be good on a hot summers day when you felt like having more than just a couple...

NikkTwist (3050) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2017 Draft at Irish Pol. Murky orange gold pour with a white foamy top. Perfumey citrus candy aroma. Tastes ... bizarre! Artificial Orange Tang. Cotton candy. Notes of banana, guava and passionfruit. Kiwi fruit. Circus peanuts. Rosewater. Somewhat sweet, though balanced. Giant leaps of tropical fruit. Blunt. Exactly not what I was expecting. This was my 3000 rating!

ordybill (1644) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange gold color with a large white head. The aroma is full of fruit, spice and some caramel. The taste is big on wheat with some fruit nicely blended in.

RRistow12 (808) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice murky orange with thick white head. Aroma is orange and other citrus but overall muted and not as fresh smelling as I'd like. Taste is moderate sweet with no bitterness. Flavors of orange, coriander, lemon. Average to below average. Oberon blows it away. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (5309) - Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2016
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 4/18/2016. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, blueberry, peach, orange peel, coriander, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, fruit/spice, and moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, blueberry, peach, orange peel, coriander, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spice bitterness and minimal fruit tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, blueberry, peach, orange peel, coriander, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, fruit/spice, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and slightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very good fruited witbier style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, fruit/spice, and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

BeerRenter76 (902) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 6/8/08. The second out of my sampler case, and the best out of the four in my opinion. It had a very small white head, little lacing was left. The body was thick yellow with an orange tinge, with small floaters. The aroma was floral and friuty, with an aftertaste of cherries, berries and citrus also present. also a slight taste of alcohol was noticeable. A little different for a wheat but not bad, worth a try

Orange and cloudy. You get the artificial fruit candy orange. This isnt for me. I prefer their honeyweiss. Wife thinks it taste like candy so she can finish the rest.

I think all of Leinenkugels beers are the same: fruity and delicious, but leave you wishing they had something more distinguishing than which fruit is in this particular beer youre drinking at that moment.

Finhead (1714) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Hazy, orange-yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has a lot of orange juice with some light lemon. It has a light body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet and refreshing.
