COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Subtle hints of citrus round out the complex aroma of Mosaic hops, for a beer so drinkable, itíll last through multiple acts.

Interesting pale gold pour w/ tons of unfiltered sediment floating around & a thin white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is of light hops & some malt. The taste is clean w/ a nice hop bite at the finish. Good twist on a wheat & makes this fairly enjoyable!

Itís a hoppy wheat, but nothing special. Subtle citrus notes with typical wheat beer flavoring. Grassy finish.

Bottle from Steveís in Fitchburg. Pours an unclear pale golden with a bit of a white head. Some lace. Aroma has light citrus, straw and a bit of bread, plus later some tangy spiciness shows through. Taste is lightly sweet malt, some fruitiness and lemon. Finishes light and sweetly lemony. Not bad for style and pleasant enough for a summer day. 12.9

jgb9348 (4716) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Hazy golden and blonde coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall white head. Aroma of bright citrus and PNW hops with some good wheat notes, a hint of curacao and coriander seed and some subtle yeastiness at the end. Medium-bodied; Definite wheatie flavour with some subtle sweetness of honey and curacao and a little bit of hop bitterness at the end, but nothing pungent. Aftertaste is nice and relatively smooth and one-dimensional, but that isnít a bad thing with this one - true to the style. Overall, a nice wheat ale with some curacao, honey and of course hoppy notes to go with the typical wheatie and coriander seed freshness. I sampled this pint on draught at Cheeky Monk in Denver, Colorado on 08-June-2014 for US$5.99.

$1.80 bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours slightly hazy olden with a frothy white head. Smells of banana and grass. tastes of grass and wheat. Plain, but crisp and drinkable.

Not hoppy enough for IPA fans, not traditional enough for wheat aficionados, and bland everywhere in between. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Dexters in madison Wisconsin. Citra wheaty smell. Hazy golden color. Weak tasting hops and the three overall taste comes out as very unbalanced. The aftertaste is not something to be desired. Would not buy this one glad I just had a pint.

[Tap] Hazy yellow color with very little head to it. Aroma is of dank hops, mild citrus and sweet grains. Flavor notes include earthy hops, citrus, grass, sweet malts and tropical fruits. Moderate bitterness. Finish is more bittersweet. Decent balance. Pretty good, but I think Boulevard 80 Acre edges it out in my book.

I am not typically a wheat beer fan but this was a pleasant surprise. this pours a hazy golden yellow color with a two finger white head. the aroma was coriander and citrus. the taste was much different than the aroma to me. the aroma was so strong with the coriander and citrus i was expecting the taste to be similar but it was much more balanced with some faint hops and nice biscuity flavor.
