3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, poured into a snifter. The aroma is moderately intense, and straightforward with notes of juicy citrus and grains. It pours slightly hazy with an orange hue and a light effervescence. This is topped by a soft, well retained, fluffy cream head that leaves a good amount of lace. The taste is a citrusy medium sweet and complimentary, medium light bitter. The light bodied beer is slick with creamy carbonation. The flavor profile is citrus juice and peaches with a mild herb or grain quality that finishes zesty with bitter citrus. An astringent character lingers with a mild bread crust flavor late.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice aroma of slight banana, some gum, some spices, and bread. Orange color with a white head. Rich sweetness up front. Spicy sweet. NIce mix of banana, peppery spice, cinnamon, and some bitter earthy hops. Bitterness intensifies on the finish and is a long linger afterward. A bit too much. Slightly watery mouth feel. Starts off nice....but bitterness is too much on the end.

Poured from the bottle of a six pack, cloudy orange with the dark tornado. This beer is dry, gritty, and drinkable, and higher alcohol than most wheat beers.

Bottle at home. Aroma is floral hops, apple, brown sugar. A fairly typical APA, heavy sweet malt underneath, nice and bitter up front. Smooth, wheatty palate, not much hint of wheat other than that. Fruity hoppy finish with noticeable alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single bottle from Binny’s, bought Jan 14. Big spongy, lacy head puffs up over a golden beer with just a few bubbles. Light, pleasant hop dominates the nose. Taste is a basic pale ale with American bittering hops. Malt is slightly thick, enough to coat the lips. I try to pick up the wheat malt, but the hops are enough to knock it out. This is one of Begyle’s more accessible beers, though, available in multi-pack 12 oz. bottles.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one pours a dark straw color with a long lasting slightly beige head from the bottle. Malt is smooth with a bread/cereal combo thing going on, followed by a clean floral hop finish. No indication of the 7% ABV hiding within. Easily sessionable.
