Bottle split with the notorious AJM - thanks, I guess. Pours a straw color with a trim off-white head. Smells and tastes of vanilla and pear air freshener sprayed on top of a carpet made of grain. Have to admit that this was a DP - just way too cloying. Itís the thought that counts, though...

Remarkably clear with low head retention, but a nice white fluffy head. Low aroma, but smells like pilsner malt. Low sweetness, with slight wheat and a small bit of pilsner malt. I.... I don’t get it. I LOVE Alpine, Pat makes some amazing brews, but I don’t get this beer. I would’ve preferred an actual wheat beer but this is just like a booring pilsner/wheat. Three cheers for clarity, though.

Smell: It’s wheaty, lemony, maybe a bit floral.
Taste: Mixture of pale malts and soft, malted wheat. Medium sweetness. Some tart lemon. Mild bitterness. Sweet, lemony finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: One of those so-so, average at best kind of beers where, if it weren’t for these notes, would be instantly forgettable.

From tap at Pizza Port, San Clemente. Pours clear and yellow with a lacing white head. Mild pilsner hops and malt aroma. Mild flavour if not to say vague. Reminds me more of a german pilsner than a kristall weizen. Light wheaty touch towards the finish though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent bright golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet sugary wheat and pale malts with a touch of lightly doughy yeast. Body starts with good fullness and carbonation along with a clean sweetness and subtle bittering hop character toward the finish. Incredibly drinkable and smooth without being too dull.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a pretty hazy orange gold, with a medium pearly white head. The aroma was mostly of orange citrus, some tartness, with hints of sweet wheat notes. The flavor was mostly citric, lots of that orange peel, mild wheat flavors, and a touch of candy sugar. Not really your typical wheat flavors, seems more like a Belgian ale or saison to me. Not really complex or interesting at all, just fruity and a bit bland. Wasnt impressed here.
