3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
appearance: cloudy dark orangey amber, with a couple fingers of foamy light yellow head and generous lacing. aroma: some bright citrus in the blood orange and grapefruit vein, with some toasted wheat bread and some grassy, floral hops. taste: as the aroma indicates, trending on the bitter side. finish: dry and relatively bright, with lingering hoppy bitterness and just a hint of creamy malt. notes: Not bad. I prefer, say, the Boulevard 80 acre, but this was pretty good. Bottle from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma combines a musty wheat with earthy grapefruit and a touch of citrus. Flavor is similar with a combination of earthy citrus/grapefruit as well as earthy wheat backing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Albion. Hazy dark orange with small foamy whitish head, sharp hops aroma, high carbonation, slightly sweet hoppy taste, long hoppy finish with sweetness at the end. Quite an interesting brew with taste starting hops bitter and ending sweetish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Great Orange copper color, little head stability, and very cloudy. Malty Orange marmalade aromatics, the hop aroma also seems old. Some pepperness as well. The flavor is similiar with a bit more hop bite. The mouthfeel is heavier then expected. It may possibly be from the wheat. Not my favorite but I could see lots of people drinking multiple pints of.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
August 20th, 2013 - Breckenridge Brewery’s Ophelia Hoppy Wheat sounds like an ambitious blending of two different flavor profiles. And while the aroma has a neat blend of hops, almonds and bananas, the flavor is rather bland. There’s a half-hearted pilsener character, but thin and weak, and not up to the task. Somewhere between the hops and wheat flavor is a chaotic combination of flavor notes, and that’s where this brew lands.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle gift. Light floral hops on the nose. Decent malty wheat taste with some citrus. A clear blue moon clone. Body is silky. Finishes with just a touch of bitter. To be fair, this isn’t my favorite style. This beer doesn’t seem to be remarkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy copper with a medium head. Average lacing. Nose is wheat, malt, citrusy hops. Body is light. Nice barley and wheat maltiness, followed by some grassy hops. Bit of orange. The only thing off-putting is a metallic sensation late in the palate. Otherwise pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2/04/2015 (draught at The Oak in Cincinnati, Ohio): Very hoppy aroma that exudes herbs. Dull pale bronze color with foamy white head. Herby hop flavor with a splash of lime or other citrus, even maltiness, mild to moderate bitterness level. Medium, very smooth and slightly creamy. Very good and quite unique. I had initially dismissed this based on it being a "hoppy wheat" beer, but glad Mt friend decided to try it. I like it quite a bit since it’s so different from the norm.
