3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 22oz. bottle marked batch #1 purchased a Gene’s Sausage Shop in Chicago for $7.99. Into a Duval tulip glass it pours medium golden orange with a slight haze and a 3/4 tight white head that disappears to a thin film. Aroma and taste of alcohol. Bitterness along back and sides of tongue and soft palate. Long aftertaste with heat from the alcohol. A full bodied wheat ale. A hoppy wheat ale with a malt backbone without the ubiquitous citra/amarillo grapefruit hop flavor.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a cold, rainy, dreary late December evening after having to get my car out of the repair shop. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a moderate white head. Aroma doesn’t have much going on, light yeast and wheat. Taste is nice, dryish finish, unexpected bitterness for the style, overall it’s pretty good.
