blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2008
Bottle at beerbistro. Pours a cloudy yellow with a large fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, spicy, sweet and fruity. Flavour of yeast, bready malt, spices, tart lemon, more fruit and an average bitter finish. Nice lacing. Medium bodied. I expected more, it coming from this brewery, but it’s still pretty good and kind of refreshing.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 10, 2008
11.2 oz bottle: Pale straw pour with a sizeable top. I was expecting the same rocky cap that other St. B beers portray, but this head slowly sank into a thin film on top. The nose is wheaty with a nice balance of coriander and sweet orange. The body lacks carbonation, but still drinks nice. More sweet malts are displayed, with a nice peppering of spices throughout. A healthy dose of carbonation would help to define the complexities of the body, but as is everything kind of mushes together. This is not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but some tweaking could make it great.

elcaballo (101) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Some citrusy flavors along with some light spicyness. Not a beer I fell in love with but I might pick up another bottle at some point

kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Slightly cloudy straw yellow with a 2 inch dense white head. It’s the color of cream soda. Aroma of bright wheat malt, and orange peel. Medium strength flavor, thats is sweet malty and citrus. A really strong citrus beer. It taste like theres a half of an orange squeezed in there. Dry palate and finish. A little watery. Average lacing.

3.2
Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Smells spicy sweet, yeasty with a little orange. Dirty appearance witha rusty orange color. The spicy-ness comes out more in the taste as corriander, and of course very orangey. Overall a yeasty fruity beer, not bad, not great.

3.6
MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Nose very flowery with citrus and some pepper notes. Nice strength, filling the room. Body is a cloudy yellow with large fluffy white head. Tastes of peppery fruit with some wheat.

3.2
bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Bottle. Yellow-golden beer with a nice whitish head. Light spice and citrus aroma. Light spice, light wheat, light citrus flavor. Medium bodied. Easy to drink. Lingering wheat, light spice, and light hay.

patrick767 (4181) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2008
bottle - Pours hazy light yellow with a citrusy, yeasty aroma and a lasting white head. The flavor is of wheat malt, mild hops, citrus, a maybe a touch of spice. It’s light and finishes surprisingly bitter for the style, but it works. Enjoyable.

3.7
gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - APR 21, 2008
Pours very hazy, almost milky (from the unmalted wheat). Nice fruity yeast aroma, some standard clove, banana, orange peel, a little bit of ’ginger ale’. Similar to, but a bit of a departure from the standard Weienstephan characteristics. Mouthfeel is soft, just a bit of carbonation bite on the tongue. Really delicious, only drawback is price, preventing this from being an everyday drinker.

3.7
MatSciGuy (924) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2008
[bottle] Pours a hazy yellow/gold with massive rocky white head. Aroma is lots of spices and clove-y wheat. Mouthfeel is fantastic - light but rich at the same time. Flavors of lemon zest, wheat malt, bready yeast. Awesome beer.
