Bottle. Lightly floral ginseng, wheat malt, and orange peel aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with small head. Sweet floral lemon peel and wheat malt flavor. Decent body. No real weizenbock characteristics but it really didn’t claim to be - guess we need an imperial wheat tag. Patrickctenchi (6588) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Cloudy gold with a tall, slightly off-white head.
Very floral aroma....light wheat.
Flavour is dry.....grassy hops, wheat malt.
Tastes rather like a very plain wheat beer....plain being the key word.
A growing alcohol bitter....

Draft. Oh god, another shitty rochester beer. Pours a very clear straw color with almost no head. Aromas of some slight floral hoppiness but also a huge whiff of alcohol. Taste is semi sweet, thin mouthfeel, lightly bitter and kind of hot. Finishes semi sweet with a slight burn. Mild bitter finish. Mediocre. demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2014
22 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice pungent hop note, wheat scent, and a bit of nutty malt in the backing. Appearance is a golden hue with a thick white head. Taste has got a big wheat note, resin hop note, and a bit bread. Palate is medium carbonation and a gritty wheat aftertaste. Overall, It’s OK.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a moderate fluffy white head that lasted until nearly mid-glass and left considerable lace. The aroma is sweet with malt and some citrus. The flavor is a bit sweet with malt, wheat, and lemon. A bit of alcohol burn at the finish. Mild bitterness. On the heavier side of medium bodied.

Bomber pour to shaker. Hazy, light yellow, thick head. Smooth wheat palate. Pretty good, but would be better on a hot summer day. McGarnigle (651) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bomber. I’m not always sold on imperial wheats, given that the strength of wheat beers is in their lightness and refreshment. This isn’t a witbier or anything like that, just a strong wheat. 46 IBUs isn’t bad, but not a lot for such high gravity. It’s pretty good. Decent heft to it and it would go well with summery foods. The finish is kind of ugly. Not a bad way to get buzzed. Ron (3959) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. Poured a thick golden with white head and no lace. Aroma of wheat and sweet malts and some hops. The flavor had some more of the hops with wheat malt and some citrus notes. Some bitterness was there to help hide the alcohol. Decent beer. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized fluffy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy golden fruits. The flavor was sweet, tangy and bready with notes of melon, golden fruits and a boozy presence that grew with each sip. Medium length tangy bread, melon, golden fruits and alcohol finish. Moderately full bodied. The alcohol starts to really distract. Ok. jb (3253) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Clear, dark gold, nice lacing pattern. German hops in the nose, clean taste, a bit of mineral/iron in the taste, dry German hop finish. Wheat adds body but I don’t get much in the way of flavor from it. Seems like a strong lager. Good summer beer and I bet it would be a good wings accompaniment.
