3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2015 12oz bottle poured into a Hefeweizen glass. The aroma is sugary sweet with candy fruit notes, and tropical up front, but this settles into more stone fruit and a faint herb hint with a graham cracker note. It pours a brilliant, oily and effervescent pale with a soapy white head that has good retention and somewhat messy, scattered, crystal lacing. The taste is a medium bitter and sweet, although unbalanced. The medium body is slick with a light fizz carbonation, flavored by grain, light lemon citrus, and a light hint of banana. It finishes grainy with a light solvent, and some nectarines that turns to an aftertaste that?s lightly astringent with notes of a light solvent and grains.

Bottle. I think this has been dwelling in my fridge way past its ideal drink-by date. So, there’s that. Smell is overly sweet malts, cooked veg, and really sweet fruit. Pretty looking, though with a nice clear dark golden color and decent white head. Taste is out of kilter. Too sweet then a sharp bang of hops. Light hop finish. If I ever run across this fresher, I’ll give it another go

Refreshing wheat ale. Some mild, grassy characteristics. The aroma of the beer gave me a great first impression of the beer, but it was lacking with flavor in my opinon. Overall, a refreshing mediocre wheat ale.

An excellent wheat ale very drinkable just what I expect from a wheat beer. Pours a nice hazy creamy color. Would recommend.

12oz from refrigerated bottle into a shaker pint. Moderate pours a pleasant one-finger white head with moderate retention and decent lacing. Golden and clear with moderate carbonation. Nose is fairly weak. Wheaty. Moderate body. Appropriate for style. Taste is very straight forward. Moderate bitterness with a wheat and malty taste. Not too much going on, but an alright hot-day beer, I’d say.

Clear, golden pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has wheat and some mild, grassy hops. It has a light body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is slightly sweet with a dry finish.

Bottle. Aroma of malted wheat, and some citrus. Pours pale straw yellow with a thin white head. A hint of grassy hops on the palate. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Smooth and quite drinkable, though nothing special.

Not a lot going on. I feel like this is barely more than a blonde ale. A hint of spice and a little wheat. Quite refreshing, which is it’s redeeming factor.
