16 oz draft pours a straw colored very hazy with moderate head that dissipates to a film. Aromas are light: mainly flaked wheat, with touiches of citrus and coriander light on the palate. Light orange peel. Body is right for the style, nice citrusy orange, spice, and coriander. Body is light, but has a good feel, decent flavor that mimics the nose. Pretty ok / good.

on tap at RB Chicago, pours hazy yellow with white head. nose of yeast, orange peel, and cloves. flavors of yeast, wheat, coriander, cloves, and orangey finish. a very good wit that would make a great lawnmower beer.

i have to admit i dont like wheat beers. cloudy gold color, light white head. the aroma was dominated by banana. the taste was banana. the finish was banana. there probably was more going on than banana, but i didnt get it. my notes say banana.

On tap at RB. Pours a hazy gold with a medium white fluffy head. Mild aroma with hints of orange and wheat. The beer itself seems a little thin, but it was well balanced and refreshing. It was sweet and the fruit flavor came through well. I am not a fan of coriander and it was very mild in this beer, which was nice. Solid beer, nothing amazing though.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2008
On tap at RB - Chicago. Poured hazy pale golden with a short cap of white head and some lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up drier wheaty notes with pepper, orange peel, and coriander spicage.. sweeter orangey notes swept in behind.. this hit the style rather well. The flavor had sticky honey, oranges, and pale malts at the core with wheaty tartness and lots of spices around (clove, coriander, and orange zest primarily).. spicy with a kinda vegetal finish. Lighter-bodied with OK balance.. too sticky at the back to really be refreshing. OK overall.

Draught, at Rock Bottom Chicago.
Slightly hazed, with all the stereotypical characteristics. Lacks guts though and isnt the real deal. Session with my amigo Spencer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Draught at the brew pub. Slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a white head that laced the glass. Attractive yeasty bread dough aroma with a light orange zest accent. Flavor was similar with a light buttery finish. Slightly sweet on the tongue. Delicious wit.
