    Hazy golden with disappointing foam head. Smells like citrus, taste like lemon and something undefined. I tried, but won't do again. (Houston 201205)

    I like this beer for a hot afternoon. I can't drink alot of them at once because after a while it alsmost too sweet or fruity. The first couple go down easy. Overall not a bad beer for a wheat beer.

    pours a hazy orangish yellow with an off-white head with little retention but with decent lacing. The aroma is wheat, light citrus and sweet. Fairly light overall. The taste is better with wheat, malt, citrus, light hops and an artificial sweetness. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing.

    had this one way too many times, it seemed like for awhile this was the only beer available that was a hint above average. The best I can liken it to is this. I'm allergic to chocolate. If you are like me and you go to parties, potlucks and receptions you find that nine times out of ten, the dessert menu becomes empty when you take off anything that has chocolate, except for one item... Lemon Bars. After 3-4 years of eating lemon bars as dessert you cannot bear to look at another lemon bar. Thats how it got for me and this beer. I use to think it had a nice lemony flavor, now I think, oh no not again. I do however like their lipbalm of this flavor.

    Interesting beer, opened with nice touch of citrus in the nose. Cloudy wheat pour. The first sip gets a overwhelming coriander note, I don't see much after that.If you can name the spice- it is to much. Drinkable, I have 5 more in the sixer, not on the list to refill. Have to research Wit style beers. Tried this one again still hold to the first impression. To much coriander spice.

    I really have mixed emotions about this beer. It is too sweet for my taste. Often it is served with blueberries in it at local bars, I do not know if that is common or something people mostly only do here. Everything about this beer is unique and I imagine people that don't like beer would possibly find something to like in this one. Although I am not a huge fan of it myself I appreciate that it is unique and the quality seems to be very good for the price. The flavor is crisp and clean and I can only describe the smell and flavor as that of the cereal Fruity Pebbles (not sure if thats a good thing?).

    This beer had a nice hazy orange color but and a nice citrus aroma. It was however lacking in the taste department. THis beer tasted like a light version of this type of beer. It was not so tasteful but it had a light beer taste with a hint of wheat.

    I love this beer. I find the cloudy, gold color to be one of the most intriguing of any beer I have seen. The aroma is of orange, berries, grass and flowers. It is very complex for a relatively cheap beer. It finishes smooth and is clean on the tongue. A good "bar" beer, especially with some blueberries in the glass.

    Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. The pour is a hazy yellow with a finger's white head. Retention and lacing are decent. The nose is wheat (of course), some orange and some other fruits (maybe berries). The taste is more of the same. The fruits even seem to overpower the wheat. As expected, it is thin and refreshing. Drinkability is good; I could have another (or two). This isn't a bad beer by any definition of the word, but I'll pass on buying it again. I've seen this described as tasting like a liquid version of fruity cereal, and I think that fits rather nicely. I wouldn't turn it down if offerred, but my money's going elsewhere.
