Bottle - Limited Release #5 Fall 2011. Pours orange-amber with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is citrusy and herbal while retaining and pleasant sweetness along with soft grains. Taste is more on the sweet side with sweet malt, citrus, candied fruit (lemon drops), lemongrass, grains, herbal notes and soft alcohol. Body medium with a thin, creamy carbonation and slight warmth from the alcohol. Ends with more candied fruit (lemon drops), lemongrass, sweet malt, grains and alcohol. Deceivingly tasty for a 9% ABV beer. This is an easy drinker! thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2012
(22oz bomber thanks to mora2000) clear gold with no bubbles. Nose of bubblegum, grass, sweet, cotton candy, and sweet fruit. Taste of grass, cotton candy, sweet, bubblegum, just a really sweet, undercarbonated beer. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Yellow with a white head. Aroma is wheat with some lemongrass notes. Flavor is lemons, oranges, wheat and some light grape character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. thornecb (5947) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Off-white head with little retention recedes to hug rim and pool surface. Sweet white grape juice and lemon aromas. Thin with sweet wheat and grapes upfront turning to lemon in the lasting dusty finish. Cybercat (5877) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Strong, wheaty aroma has a decided overtone of lemon, and in some ways is more like a cider than a beer. Lemon cider? Lemon curry? OK, back to the review. It pours a pretty clear amber, but not much head. Crisp flavor has a malty core, strong fruity notes with grape dominating, and an overtone of lemon, rather sour but actually pleasantly so. From the lemongrass, I presume - distinctive and tasty. In addition, there is a subtle, bitter hoppy undertone. Sharp texture has good body and some fizz. Keep up the good work, Widmer Brothers! Your reserve beers may not be the absolute best, but they are distinctive and fun to try.

This was a draft pour at the Sushi Bar in McCall, Idaho. I think you either like lemongrass or you do not. I kind of liked it. I came in the shaker glass a hazy yellow with a nice white head and a big nose of lemongrass. Remarkably full body for a wheat beer, and a smooth slick mouthfeel. Must be a lot of wheat in there. The flavor is somewhat sweet and as it moves into the finish you then get some bitterness for a nice bitter-sweet effect. Alcohol is well hidden. This went very well with the sushi. burg326 (5488) - Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On draft, pours a hazy golden orange color, aromas of wheat, citrus, booze, and corriander. Flavor is the same, real boozy in my book, not expecting this quality in a wheat beer. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 20, 2013
22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours light amber with a small head. Aroma of grapes, light lemongrass, light wheat, and light hops and malts. Flavor the same, with the grapes dominating. Average texture. A weird beer. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Sampled at Cajun Cafe’s 2011 Fall Beer Festival. Pours a mostly clear yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is lemony on the surface with some light grape notes under it and some sweet malt behind. Flavor is lemony at first followed by some mild sweetness and the light wheat behind. Interesting, the body is a bit thick for a wheat ale, but then it is a 9% wheat ale on top of that. mar (5423) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2012
bottle thanks to mora2000. gold with a white head. nose is lemon, wheat, yeast, and funky. easy on the palate, tart, wheat, and a tart finish.
