2009-07-31. Murky orange/amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet oranges, light spice and yeast. Flavour is quite fruity, citrus, sweet orange, light bitterness. Touch of alcohol shows through. (7+) Smooth average plus palate is quite carbonated. (3+) Pretty solid, enjoyable. On tap at the brewery williamherbert (1546) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Out of a weizen glass, from a half-growler... Look has a fluffy head that disappears rather quickly. The look is a seriously cloudy dark orange. Is there such think as a doppel-weizen? It’s thick and dark like apple cider. There is a thick banana smell that is the dominant aroma, which lends itself to the idea that it’s a hefeweizen. But there is also a citrusy what in the sip more reminiscent of a Belgian white. One thing’s for sure, the smell is heavy and pungent. The taste rotates between a strong hefeweizen and a super-thick witbier. It’s a bit sour in the wheat, and the cloves come out as it warms up. Its strength is actually rather impressive, if not the most delicious thing around. There is some cinnamon spice in there, as well as the obligatory citron and orange. The feel is thick, fizzy, bubbly and Belgian Ale-y. It’s milky. Buyer beware, I have a friend who bought this and said that his didn’t hold up very well over a few days, and it got syrupy at the end. But I had good luck with this one. Overall it’s a very solid beer. It’s not one that I’d crave or go out of my way for, but it’s good enough for a taste in early autumn. Middle Ages does not mess around with their wheats. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Draught at the Gate. This was left over from the bar’s "Whiteout" event featuring wheat beers. Poured a lifeless cloudy amber with no head. Aromas of overripe/bruised banana and canned fruit, with bubblegum, orange, and traces of spice and herbs. Sweet biscuity/bready sweet malt flavor with orange, some spice and herbal bitterness underneath. Has a bit of a caramel thing going on as well. Kind of muddled, overly sweet and unbalanced. Meh.

Draft @ Buffalo Brewfest. Slightly cloudy yellow pour. Agree with cider color. Fruity almost bubble gummy taste & aroma. Sweet & some what sugary. Decent blipp (9501) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Draft at Buffalo Brewfest. Pours apple cider yellow with a white head. Tart fruit aroma, lemony with a touch of apple, caramel and spice. The flavor is also slightly tart, with lemony citrus, apple skin, and spice. Pretty tasty.
