Sampled from a 22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, citrus, lemongrass, light white grape character, too sweet though, honey, hides the abv pretty well, just ok.

Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours dark amber with an attractive beige head and a fruit and toffee aroma. There is a strange sweet fruit flavor that includes banana, grape and lemon with a dry slightly bitter finish.

Pour from a 22 oz. bottle at Microfest 2012. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Lemon citrus and grape juice lead the way, with lemongrass and other fresh herbs, wheat, caramel malts, and a woody note. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, wheaty, juicy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Weird beer, but pretty tasty.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Malt and wheat aroma with light lemony citrus notes. Caramel and sweet malt flavor with lemon. Medium-plus bodied. Sweet malt and light wheat lingers with lemon and caramel.

Bomber shared by Mike, thanks man! Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium white head. An odd nose of lemongrass and fruit. The flavor is almost dominated by the white grape juice, very odd and funky, a bit thin at times, juicy and some light lemongrass. OK.

Bottle thanks to mora2000. Surprised I hadnt rated this before. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a small white head. Aromas are floral, lemon-lime soda, honey, very sweet, artificial, lightly grainy. Flavors are metallic, wet dog, lemongrass, peppery, low citrus, honey, very sweet, chamomile, light tartness. Lively bubbles, warming, not great.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle:   Orangish straw, fairly hazy, thin sudsy white head, dies quickly, leaves little lacing.   Pale wheaty nose, very slight white grape juice, lemony, but moreso a non-descript citrusy aroma.   As it warms the white grape juice becomes more pronounced.   Interesting nose.   Strong sweet grassiness on the tongue, a bit lemony, again with the white grape juice.   Warming, but not alcoholic.   Wheatiness is minor.   Had I had this blind, I wouldnt know what to make of it... probably a spiced like beer.   Yeah, more of a spiced beverage than a Wheat Ale.   Needs some more body, wheatiness.   Its okay, hides the 9% ABV very well.   However, not something I would probably go after again.

Babyfood pear aroma with hints of cayenne pepper. My son called it a really weird Texas Pete smell. Clear amber, headless. Whole overripe orange flavor with hints of sage. Lemongrass appears toward the end. Ends with a peppery bite, again like hot sauce. Full bodied, a bit too sweet. Im trying not to show a bias against Widmer and imagined this being another one of Dogfish Heads "off-centered ales", but I didnt find much enjoyment in it.
