Flat and bland, dry and chalky. Pale golden and slightly cloudy with small foamy head. Light wheat aromas and taste, very light. Not horrible, but not much there either.

On-tap at Tops Tasting Room, Tempe. Light watered down wheat, an uninteresting wheat. Looks OK with decent white head, smells OK, but not so drinkable. Some lemon juice and corriander and the whole thing is not so tasty, just doesn't get me. An entry level wheat.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Pours a non transparent, yellowish/orange with small head and a little lacing. Smells good. I get citris notes up front, but not in the form of bitter hops. More like an pineapple juice sweetness. The malts are what stand out. Taste is very much like the smell. Sweet cirtrisy malts start is out and in finishes with a toasted malt character. Not much hoppiness to be found, but that is OK for the style. Mouth and Drinkablity are both good as well.

I really enjoyed this beer. Nice summer quencher.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a 22 oz glass. The bottle was bought from the restaurant at a reduction. No dates found on bottle.

L: golden, hazy, quickly fading head.
S: very light hop aroma, malt
T: light on witbier spices with heavy rose/ floral notes. Slight hop tinge on the aftertaste.
F:light and carbonated
O: the floral/rose flavor really makes this an interesting witbier. Nice in the summer.

Definately a nice whitbier...
Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a smallish head for a whit....nice lacing, however.
Aroma is sweet malt and corriander...a little bit of bread...but not heavy yeast or hop intrusions and no banana esters.
The tongue is hit with the sweetness at first then a lightly biting hop and then wheat spicyness.
Aftertaste is dry and sweet without being cloying
Mouthfeel is tingly with the carbonation and pepper like wheat spiciness.
An excellent summer cooler

Clear golden color, light mouthfeel, high carbonation, citrus taste, smooth and clean tasting, overall an easy refreshing beer. Great for when you're drinking a lot.

Pours a strangely transparant, headless pale yellow color into my pilsner glass. The only thing obscuring my vision is the steady traffic of carbonation bubbles on their way to not reinforce the invisible head. Nose is also a bit off; it has wheat, it has spice, but it also has a vague noxious graininess that takes a bit away from the appeal.

Wow. something's not right here in the taste either. Broad, sweeping citrus and wheat flavors but something unidentified is making me wince as I sip it and I'm considering not finishing it. It's some kind of artificial tasting late breaking yeast note that just stops me in my tracks. Mouthfeel is fine but this one definitely does not agree with me and I won't be trying it again.

Acquired via trade from paulthebeerguru, so a big Thank You goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of wheat, lemon, Belgian yeast, some spice and a touch of hops.

T: The taste is nicely balanced with flavors of wheat, Belgian yeast and citrus (lemon & orange). There's a mild but complimentary hops presence. The malt character is thin but it's what you would expect from this type of beer. There after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not filling at all, mild kick, good representation of style, this is nice, refreshing, lighter beer that I could pound down for a long time.

A: Pours a golden yellow with two fingers worth of foamy white head. A constant heavy stream of bubbles flowing from the bottom of the glass. A thick foamy head remains the entire time and left a lot of thick lacing.

S: Lots of lemon citrus up front with a few faint spices. But for the most part this is all citrus.

T: Lots of lemon citrus again with a bit of orange as well. Not very complex but it’s very refreshing.

M: Medium fizzy carbonation with a light body.

O: Like I said it’s not a complex beer at all. But it does a great job of refreshing you. It would be great to drink on a patio or at the beach on a hot summer day.
