3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Lemon zest allusions and herbaceous edges tickle this balanced and very refreshing wheat beer.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam decorates the shiny yellow haze.
-The mouthfeel is cuddly; not too dry, but super soft and easily poundable.
-Wheat creates bready connotations.
-You can almost imagine lactose in here.
-The hop character is harmonious with the rest of the beer and super refreshing (New World citrus allusions).

Cloudy straw colored beer with a thick pillowy bright white head. Nose of orange peel, lemongrass, and coriander. Flavor is bright with citrus, which gives way to a mild resinous bitterness followed by refreshing sour spice. Crisp and refreshing, this is a delicious beer that would be great on a hot summer day.

Appearance: pours a very hazy light gold color, pours with a very large off white head that settles into a nice density
Aroma: grass, pine, citrus, smells like a good session ipa
Taste: grass, pine, lightly toasted grain, wheat, lemon, hints of sourness even
Palate: lively carbonation, slight bitter aftertaste, medium to light mouthfeel
Overall: this is delicious, it really lives up to the description, has a nice hop character with a light wheat background, not very bitter but not bland either

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bubbly hazy yellow brew with small head. Smells a faint lemon grass and gatorade. Good mix of citrus hops to this wheat making it taste better than the aroma led me to believe. This is like a hopped up Hefeweizen and is pretty good stuff. Got this in a winter sampler but this is a definate summer time beer. Would like to find a 12 pack of this long about April or May (that’s when summer starts round here).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours yellow-gold and cloudy with a thick white head. Aroma is sweet fermented grains and faint spice. Taste is a silky smooth light wheat ale. The wheat is very prominent in this one and blended well with the syrupy sweetness. There is a mildly bitter mid and finish (long finish) from the hops. Not bad.

Not at Gumballhead or Sumpin levels but a good hoppy wheat with grassy and lightly citrusy notes on a lean wheat body. Refreshing and tasty, and nothing like an IPA despite the hoppy inclination.

Bottle at home. Aroma is mainly citrus and piney hops, some light wheat and hay notes. Flavor is lightly hopped with citrus notes the most. wheat stands out more in the flavor. Not bad.

Pours a cloudy straw yellow color with aroma of pine, wheat, and citrus. Pine flavor with wheat, and orange. Quite nice and well balanced.

I bought this on clearance at Trader Joe’s in St. Louis. It’s past date but was still very tasty. Piney and subtly sweet. Not as awesome as my favorite hoppy IPA by Modern Times, but right up there in style and overall satisfaction. A++++, would buy again.
