Gold Brown Colorng with Sandy Skin. Heavy Particles in the Bottle. Citrus Aroma. Malty, Sweet, Fruity...Pretty Carbonated and Hoppy Ending. Something Ran Amuck in this Bottle. Pretty Unbalanced and Not Drinkable. Will Try Again in Hopes That Victory Wouldn’t Punish Like This From Above in Such a Manner. badgerben (5251) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2005
Hazy, dark red color with a thin head. Aroma of sour bread. Woah... it gets more sour and bitter in the taste, mixing with wheat and malt. It’s not a good sour like Gueuze, but more like an infection or staleness run amok. I hope it was just a bad bottle. StoutCat (89) - North Laurel, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2005
Pours brown-ish color with light airy head which dissapates quickly. Light, perhaps initially slightly metallic smell. Great fruity/citrus/caramel taste which lasted forever after the sip was swallowed. Delicious! mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2005
hazy copper, tight off white head. aroma of yeast, jelly candies, caramel, bready malt and toast. a littlealcohol in the flavour, dark wheaty malt, caramel, yeast, lemon, mixed berries. mildly spicy tart finish. not bad. wxman (1834) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2005
Pours a dark amber. Reasonable head, but kinda fizzy and doesn’t coat the glass. Coriander and orange peel aroma with the same in the taste. Warming alcohol, but not overstated. Very much like a New Belgium Tripel only cleaner and dryer in the taste. Also far more pricey than the tripel, but nevertheless very good.

Bottle: Poured a deep amber looking beer that is clearly not filtered with a good size head with good retention. Aroma is light roasted malt with some cloves/cinnamon. Taste is quite enjoyable with the roasted aspect mixing quiet well with the spicy (cinnamon?) and banana taste. Some bitterness can also be noticed at the end with a medium to full body. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - APR 1, 2005
Bottle. Pours out a nice hazy orange/amber color. Creamy looking off-white head fades slowly to a ring and no significant lacing is left. Aroma is pleasantly wheaty with lots of bananna and a touch of clove/yeast. Body is medium. Fairly smooth with a little burn on my sore throat. Wheat beer flavors abound. One of the better Victory products in my opinion. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Bottle: Sweet fruity aroma with apple and banana. Pours a hazy reddish-orange with slight tranparency. Small white head. Fruit (banana and apple) with a slightly sour finish. Not bad, but just doesn’t do much for me. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
Bottle dated August 20, 2004. Deep orange/amber in colour with a medium tan head. The aroma was turning sour, still some malt and bananas but lots of vinegar. The flavour was of alcohol, sour, moderate amounts of vinegar with some malt coming through. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. Finishes like a fine Flemish Sour. Its too bad VIctory had a run of bad batches. Rating 4/4/4/2/8.ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2005
Rerate. Bottle. Rusty orange in colour. Aroma was of light alcohol, light citrus, some malt, banana and some wheat. The flavour was malty, some wheat, caramel, bananas. Large body, medium carbonation. Finish is long with a slight tang. This was truely a different beer then before.
Hazy dark amber with a big tan head. Aroma is estery and a bit sweet, with typical weizen spiciness. Alcohol is noticeable up front, but it’s presence diminishes towards the finish. Flavor has notes of lemon, pepper, coriander, and some grape. Not a big fan of wheat beer in general, but this is pretty good.
