3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yep, it’s a sessionable hoppy wheat beer; chosen hop characteristics do blend nicely with the wheat ale components
A hazy golden yellow sits beneath a smooth to frothy head, settling to bulging islands and a few thick peninsulas of lace
Aromatic and intriguing for a session, light hoppy and light wheat notes combine to create something more interesting than your average version of the style while keeping it simple; smooth and quaffable with a lightly creamy, lightly drying finish with some additional vegetal notes leading to building layers of banana, dough, and light clove; the finish-after is really where things get somewhat interesting

Tap. Hazy gold. Good lacing. Fruity, yeasty, and hoppy aroma. Initial spicy bite, then well balanced throughout. Very good and drinkable. Happy to say it was just what I expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Best by: 09/21/13. Pours a hazy pale gold with a nicely sized beige head. The remarkably tart aroma features plenty of orange juice, lemons, zesty citrus rinds, peaches, hints of bananas, a slightly musty funk, a little candi sugar, and a touch of coriander. Goes down thin to medium-bodied with a tongue-tingling and refreshing effervescence. A fair amount of wheatiness upfront taste-wise along with a dusting of candi sugar. Tart orange juice, lemons, a little grapefruit, and some citrus rinds at the end. The finish is dry and kinda bitter. A yeasty spiciness is present the whole way through. Definitely worth revisiting.

Bottle. The pour is very light with big head. The aroma is a good mix of hops and wheat. The taste is full of carbonation. Light flavor. A little cut in the taste. Some light citrus notes.

Hazy yellow with a nice lasting head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Compared to other wheat ales, the extra hop bitterness makes this beer special and unique. Clean finish with the urge to drink more.

Tap @ OBF... Poured pale, hazy yellow with a retaining white head. Nose contained wheated malt and floral hops. Same hop notes int he aroma came through in the taste but came off a little more faint than expected. Light mouthfeel and clean. Some fruity yeast spices in the finish.

Very flavorful and refreshing. Aroma is more wheat-centered than hoppy, but taste is well balanced with significant Cascade character.
