2004 draught. Bright golden color, quite cloudy as mentioned. Fairly typical american wheat appearance. Aroma is light and spicy, some hops, light yeast. Flavor is thick and chewy wheatiness, moderate citrus notes and moderately sweet. Finish changes things up and becomes dry and lightly astringent. Pretty interesting flavors, but none of them are terribly powerful or lingering. Medium body, quite effervescent. ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013

Aroma: The aroma of this beer is wheat and spice, with malty notes and light hops
Appearance: It pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head on it
Flavor: The taste is much the same, wheat-forward, leans sweet, with some balancing bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has an average carbonation, and a decent mouthfeel
Thought this was a solid, but unspectacular wheat ale. It is thirst quenching and easy to drink. Solid.
Pours a hazy amber with a thin white ead. Smells of sweet wheat, some clover, light spice. Tastes ful bodied with some banana and clove elements. Enjoyable. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2009
In short: A light on taste but highly refreshing summer thirst quencher.sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2013
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Light wheaty nose with a touch of lemon. Taste is light but very pleasant and refreshing. Some pineapples, crisp unsweetened wheat, some other topical fruits, a light lemon presence. Pleasant tartness. A little dryness despite the fruity flavours. Extra non-aggressive. I cannot give super high marks to a beer that is so light on taste. However this is not a bland beer and on the hot-day-refreshing scale this scores very high. This is certainly one of the best inoffensive thirst quencher beer I’ve had. Had this been available up north in my homeland of Montreal I would have drank this all the time during our hot summer days. All three of them.
Tap at brewery. Pours hazy gold with average, creamy off-white head; short retention and some lacing. Aroma is banana, cookie and cereal malts, cloves, floral hops, and light toast. Flavor is sweet, bready malts forward with supporting grassy hops, light fruit esters, herbs, and light grapefruit; dry finish. Light body and low carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2015 Pours deep gold into a weizen glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Butterscotch and clove aromas. Soft with sweet bubblegum and clove front to back. Much improved from 2011.
7/31/2011: Pours hazy gold into a Weizen glass. White head quickly recedes to hug rim. Bubblegum and coriander aromas. Thin with sweet bubblegum upfront turning slightly sour before the lasting sour hay finish. 6/3/6/3/12 snoworsummer (5698) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours cloudy dark yellow. Smells like lemon peel and spices. Tastes bitter and citrusy. Medium body. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of light wheat, light malts, and some floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad wheat ale. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2008
Draught, sample @ brewpub. Yellowish and hazy. Nose is subdued. Very nice mellow, rounded flavors, balanced and smooth. Slight hop finish. Sweetness present in beginning rounds out with lingering malt/hop purity in finish. Interesting. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2002
Rather sour and thin. Seemed too carbonated, even for a weiss. Least impressive of the Portsmouth sampler I tried at the brewery a few nights ago.
