UPDATED: MAY 5, 2010 1 of 45 beers at Rock Bottom Brewery’s Rockfest. Pours a bright, cloudy, yellow. Smells and tastes of mostly lemon with other citrus fruits in the mix. Finishes sweet, refreshing, a bit sugary. msante79 (2244) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2010
On tap at RB Orland Park. Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Aromas of citrus, wheat, light grains and touch of yeast. Flavors are light with citrus, orange peels, wheat, and some light grains and yeast. Pretty tasty wheat. Ian seems to have a pretty good handle on this style. Not as good as Sunny D I had last year, but still pretty tasty. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2010
Hazed golden pour. with big exuberant white head. Nose is spicy Belgian wheat (grassy, yeasty, and lemony)...deliciously refreshing and leaving you wanting another one right away?!. Nice summery brew (and we’re still expecting another snow storm before it’s all over this year!) dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2010
hazy yellow, respectaptable white head, quite lacy. spicy, yeasty nose. bready and sweet spicy flavor. medium bodied, dry finish. pretty good example of the style. on tap at the rbop brewpub. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Mugclub draft on tap at the brewpub (Orland Park, IL). Pours a nice hazy straw, a lively golwing yellow with small white head that dies to a sturdy film that laces pretty well. Aromas are a nice dose of coriander, flaked wheat malts provide a grainy cereal quality, a lighter fruitiness on the ester side, more spice than fruit, a lighter orange peel and zest element as the spice tends to dominate. Initial is light bodied, lively, a nice flaked wheat and grainy malt base, drinkable, with decent coriander spice, faint white pepper, the orange peel is there, not primary, fruity esters fall farther behind, mellow and tasty, the beer is pleasant, a true sessioner, but a little bland without much orange peel in the flavor, as the aroma leads you to believe thee would be a nice harmony between the elements. Not the case. Ok.

On tap at the bewpub: This poured a cloudy straw body with a a tall white head that laced the glass heavily. The aroma was bready, yeasty, with ciitric hints and soft spices. Both the coriander and the orange peel were more apparent in the flavor and there was an increase in the spiciness, but the sweet doughy malt balanced it out nicely. the finish was dry. A tasty, refreshing brew.
