Downtown Chicago. Seemed okay to me. The one I got was very cloudy, with a thin, lacy head. A light flavor with more wheatiness than I'd expect. Just a hint of clove of other spice, not over hopped, and with a citrsy note (that for having it without the lemon).
In Chicago a couple years ago. Pretty standard, unimpressive wheat. Retired at a a chain? Not a good sign. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Draft in a plastic keg cup. Pours dirty gold with a small whit ehead. nose is light wheat and bananas. Taste is similar to nose, except for added water. JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Run of the mill wheat from a sub medicore brewpub. Only reason to go here is the roof top deck. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 Pours a hazy golden body with a light, bubbly head. The aroma is grainy with smatterings of citric fruits, orange with a twist of lime. It’s got a grainy flavor, sweet and tart, but with the fruits dropping into the background. The finish is a light hop bitterness and a tart twist of the citric.iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 16, 2005

Draught: Hazed orange-pineapple below a thin ivory cream. Fruity, yeasty aroma with a hint of grain and more noticeable notes of sour malt, wheat and bananas. Light, but not quite thin palate that has a slight creaminess through the finish. Flavours are mild, un-offensive and total unremarkable with a strong flour and malt presence with far-off hops noticeable as an after-thought. Not for me, but I imagine it is a decent seller…

Hazy, opaque, golden body with a thin, off-white head. A subtle, slightly fruity aroma with light banana, sweet oranges, yeasty esters, wheat bread and a touch of subtle spice at the end. The body is fairly light, but refreshing. The flavors are pretty good, but certainly not outstanding. Slightly sweet and fruity, yeasty and just a kick of tartness at the end. The citrus element is nice and the hops are rather subtle. Not bad, but not something I want to drink often. AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Pours hazy yellow with small head. This is your typical mild wheat beer. I really don’t have much to say hear, theres just nothing to talk about. JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Blah, blah, blah...introducing Americas most boring dream. Light body, light nose, light everything. Barely resembles anything close to a wheat beer besides the serving glass and the lemon that they attempted to stuff in it. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Nice try, but not particularly good. Weak head for a wheat brew, foamy, floaty body and appearance, and a very "off" taste ... sour is probably closest to the sensation on the palate, but that might be giving it too much credit. Not impressed.
