This definitely leans more towards the IPA side of the equation. Lots of citrusy hops and just a wee bit of wheat character. Some nice grassy flavors, as well. Simple and tasty, and well made. Thanks to theisti for the trade.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Snookers. The name says it all - - a hoppy wheat beer (Belgian, in my view). Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a thin small bead white head that only coats the surface, but stays throughout. Aroma is citrus and spice, and the taste is like a Hoegaarden with some American dry hops thrown in after the boil. Very nice and refreshing, but the IBU certainly seems higher than 20.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: pour is cloudy, medium gold in this glass, with a frothy, fine bubbled white head here. Retention is average, with some spotting present. The nose is lemon zest, tropicals, and light pine. The flavor profile is more citrus, bittering american hops, while it slides into wheat. I thought it could use a heavier malt profile for balance, but they were going for a summer drinker, and were pretty successful overall

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From BandC. Actually an American wheat ale that I like and well popular with the missus too. Lemony zestiness of a wit with a little hefeweizen thrown in and fresh but now overwhelming hops. Could have been a mess but was not at all. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Hoppy aroma. Slightly unfiltered golden yellow color, thin white top, lacing. Floral, grass, spruce, citrus, orange, and lemon zest. Lively carbonation, medium body. Near perfect balance of an IPA and a hefeweizen. Major props!

12oz bottle. Poured a real hazy yellow color with a nice, thick white head. Aroma was a grainy, wheat note, with some light citrus and malt notes. Flavor was notes of some wheat notes, hops and malts. Flavor was plenty of hops, citrus. Very interesting. Props for originality. Enjoyed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at beer study. Pours light hazy orange golden with a frothy white head. Nose is dirty, soil earthy hops, some pine resin. Cereal, light biscuit, sweeter malt, light spice. Solid, but like most boulevard (for me), forgettable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale cloudy lemon rind yellow with one to two fingers of sticky white head. Weird nose, odd cross between hop resin and wheat yeast lends an overripe/rotten fruit/citrus character. Bad oranges. Some raw bread dough shows and overly yeasty notes. Same in the flavor. Mildly vegetal/creamy corn and doughy. Hops get weird in the flavor too. Bomb.
