Subtle hints of citrus round out the complex aroma of Mosaic hops, for a beer so drinkable, it’ll last through multiple acts.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cavie (4005) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2015
Enjoyed at BTBF 2015. Cloudy yellow color. Hoppy nose with a wheat smell. Flavor is also happy with a very fat aroma. Sweet finished.

Dogbrick (9181) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2015
Hazy yellow-gold color with a medium frothy white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, wheat and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of citrus, herbal wheat and mild piney hops. The finish is soft and wheaty with a biscuit malt aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

4/5/15 (Bottle) - Foggy yellow pour, decent carbonation and white head. Yeast and orange aroma. Nice wheat taste with minimal hop taste. Not very strong, very smooth drinking beer. Overall good summer outdoor beer.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Plenty of hops but not so great on taste. Ends on a dry note.
