3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had cask conditioned at the smokehouse. Orangish yellow in color, cloudy with a pillowy white head. Descent amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste translates to aroma, with hops up front, some orange and grapefruit notes and a little bit of wheat. Good beer especially the way it was served. Recommend having it on a firkin friday.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Smokehouse. Cloudy orange pour with a big white head. Citrus hop aroma with wheat malt. Citrus hop flavor (I guessed Centennial, but it’s all Amarillo) with wheat malt in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed at The Smokehose location. A hoppy wheat, with a little head and lots of lace. Aroma was nice, bubblegum and a bit of wheat. Orangey taste that the brewmaster told our group was neither flavouring nor hops. Above average carbonation, I think the only one of the product line.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at BMRAF 08. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the Smokehouse. Pours an orange color with a small white head. Aroma is substantial citrus like hops. The Barley house character that all their hoppy beers have, I don’t know how to explain it other than a fresh, sweet citrusy hop smell. Nice. Flavor is fairly hoppy, lightly bitter, smooth and even a bit watery. Pleasant, clean taste. Hops are more in the aroma than flavor. Certainly reminds one of Gumballhead, though it is different enough not to be a copy. I liked this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Firkin version at Barley’s 6th Annual Mini RAF (04/26/08): The beer pours a cloudy dark orange color with a thin off-white head that fizzes away quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and pine. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with flavors of hops, pine and malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness. Decent overall.

This to me, is nearly exactly like the commercial description. "A pale wheat that is hopped up" is pretty damn close. On tap @ Smokehouse. Pale orange color, very piney, weedy smelling. Tasted somewhere between a cloudy wheat beer and a pale ale. Mild bitter finish. Thought the hops were a bit weak in this one, though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fresh growler courtesy of moejuck. Pours orangey copper with a white head. Smells of perfume, oranges, pine, some caramel. Tastes hoppy with lots of resiny notes. This is much more hoppy than I was expecting and I don’t see where the American wheat angle comes in on this one.
