3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
Thereís a slightly clear straw yellow colored body, decent amount of carbonation was seen rising, one finger white foamy head that died within 20 seconds, super light spotty lacing that slid into the body.
The smell had wheat combined with lemon and orange, slightly sweet and a bit yeasty underneath.
The taste was mainly sweet and yeasty with a secondary citrus back up, slight citrus aftertaste and a dry finish.
The palate was light, sessionable. Carbonation is pretty smooth for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this is a pretty good American Pale Wheat ale that I would have again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour from a 12 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-5-14. Bottle from a mixed 12 pack I purchased before Thanksgiving, so itís at least 3.5 months old, though I donít think it has suffered significantly for that light aging. Yeasty, complex, and strong aroma features scents of apple juice, white grape juice, sweet white wine, urine, golden raisin, hay, cigar tobacco, leather, minerals, and mineral water. Mixed aroma, a combination of good and bad, but the strength and complexity earns it an above average score. Pours a straw or pale gold color. Highly effervescent. Small amount of off-white head. I love the long-lasting effervescence. I poured this in two separate, roughly equally sized pours. The first pour had an ordinary apperance aside from the strong effervescence. The second pour was cloudy with much large, suspended particulate. Normally I like that, but there was so much large, suspended particulate that it looked a bit unappetizing. Flavors of apple, apple juice, lemon, and saltwater. Bready taste. Some dryness reminiscent of a saison. A touch of hefeweizen-esque bubblegum. Much less complex in flavor than in aroma. Light body. Frothy in the palate. Subpar palate, as is common for the style. Overall, itís not at all a bad beer. Itís actually fairly interesting and dare I say memorable. But it is ultimately too much of a mixed bag to count as "good."

Amazing on hot mid west days. Fresh, fruity taste, an added slice of fruit is excellent with this (usually not a fan of adding fruit).
