Rating from notes. Tap at Mugs. Very enjoyable flavors of hops and wheat. Some thick breadiness, nice body. Big head, larger bubbles. Some dark fruit skins maybe give a dry touch at the end. Very interesting. tyler_mn (2464) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2008
22oz bottle. Never had this one fresh, but it seems to be developing along quite nicely. Juicy and fruity hops along with a good dose of thick, doughy and caramel malt on the nose. Apricots and tangerines backed by a whackload of bready malt. As the beer opens, the hops fade a bit and a more drying, cracker malt characteristic takes over. Still inviting, though. Pours a hazed peach skin/orange with a decent sized white head leaving light spotty lacing. Still a fair amount of bright and bittering hops on the palate. Slightly floral with your requisite grapefruit notes. Cracker and toasted bread crust to balance out the hops. Some light bubblegum sweetness and lemon peel tartness as well. Bordering on full bodied with lively carbonation with a lengthy dry and bitter finish. Stood up to age quite nicely, methinks. Thanks Mike! GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2008
Bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. The head was tall, sticky, creamy, and off white. There was some decent lacing left on the glass at the end. The aroma as of malty caramel, Ritz crackers, and flowery hops. Slightly sweet with a smooth and creamy mouth feel. I tasted grass, cotton candy, toffee, and a splash of raw alcohol. Pretty good stuff. pantanap (3367) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2008
bottle from spinkle methinks....pours a clear bubbly orange brown with a moderate creamy white head.... aromas of grassy light earthy hops and sweet sugary malt..... flavors start along the malt front and then quickly shifs to some grassy bitterness which lingers on well through the finish. mouthfeel is nice and the mild carbonation level works pretty well with this beer. thomat (4140) - Gï¿½teborg, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2008
Hazy orange with a medium white head. Sweet and fruity notes. Bitter with malt and lots of hops. Medium to full body with a dry finish.

Tap at Winter Storm 2. A very nice variation and surely the most turbocharged white I have ever had. Tart orange outlines a very sharp and lasting wheat and flour flavor. Wish I could have again. dmac (6457) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 29, 2008
22 oz bomber from adrian910ss, thanks Adrian. Pours a hazy orange with a large super foamy head that leaves tons of lacing. Sweet aroma with notes of fruit..apricot, perhaps a little bit of peach, pineapple, and some doughy malts. Not really getting the wheat in this one. Medium bodied with a ton of drinkability and a slightly bitter finish. Flavor is starting to fade a bit with a slight bit of soapiness in the initail flavor that gives way to bitter hops and perhaps a touch of grain. Well it’s easy to say that the 9 is holding on longer then the 10 since I have had both of them within about a week of each other.

Light amber with a thin head. Smells caramel sweet with a touch of spices. Smooth med.body. Taste mjrrors the smell with a hoppy bitterness to finish. 61006 jsquire (4597) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Golden color with a frothy off white head. Nose reminds me of tangerine peel and caramel. There is the patina of oxidation in this beer, but it carries it well. Sweet caramel, lots of orange juice, some peach and apricot, and still a strong grapefruit rind in the finish. The alcohol is more prominent than I would have expected from a 7.8% beer. This is still a nice strong ale and should still have a couple of years left in it. Thanks to Kramer17801 for hooking me up with this retired beer. wetherel (1888) - Cupertino, California, USA - JAN 27, 2008
On tap at Stone’s 2008 Winter Storm. Mild hoppy aroma. Yellow amber color. Little bitterness. Some oxidation. Decent.
