Anybody who rates this below a 4 is crazy. This is one of the finest beers ever crafted. The only reason I don't score it a 5 is because it's a witbeir and I'm not particularly fond of them. But this great white, I could drink all night. Serve it with an orange slice.

i liked this one. it pours a sort of average looking clear yellow to golden color, with basically no head just a few patches of leftover white bubbles. the nose is nice though, fruity and robust, glistening yeast, and something tropical thats tough to place. the flavor is very balanced between the light wheat malt, heavily filtered and refined, the fruity yeast, somewhere between a hefe and a belgian, and the hops, which are english in the bittering sense but american and the dripping juicy sense. this is a very tasty brew. a little too thin on the body, i need more heft in my wheat beers, but just right on the carbonation, which is lively but not popping off too hard. overall id rather have a tangerine wheat, but this was a useful pint of beer, worth the four bucks i paid for it, and one ill drink again before too long.

Had this on tap at paradise by the slice
review from notes, consumed on November 13th, 20I12
It came out, it had a golden color body with no head. The aroma was of citrus and with some grassy, malty notes to it. The taste had some nice lemon notes and wheat to it, also some fruit and citrus also. The mouthfeel is was very good, good carbonation and easy to drink. Overall this is a good beer.

A - hazy pale yellow, finger of head quickly dissipated to minimum random islands and lacing
S - sour citrus and yeasty bread aromas dominate, mild leaf and pepper
T - mild pale grain, some sour citrus, a bit of a musty flavour
M - light with mild carbonation, too tin for my liking, finishes just a little tart
O - average at best

Pours golden to straw with a hint of haze and weak white head. The aroma is mild with candy apples, malt sweetness and a dash of lemon. The taste is much like the nose with malt sweetness mixed with candied apples and lemon. But now a nice floral hop flavor and a touch of bitterness intertwine with the other notes creating a pleasing array of flavors.

a hazy yellow pour with 1/2" head which quickly diminished.
slight aroma of hops, smell of pilsner malt, grassy, bready.
tastes of flowers, honey, fruit citrus, very distinct flavor for a wheat beer.
medium body (light) with moderate carbonation.

overall a decent wheat beer, a lot like a fruity pale ale.
