Hazy deep amber. Nose of catty citrus and caramel malt. Flavor is citrus and some tropical fruit with a light caramel backing. Lingering bitterness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A- Wheat, citrus, subtle hops, slight barnyard.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, minimal white head.
T- Wheat, oranges, citrus, subtle bitterness.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, unbalanced finish.
O- I was expecting an 80 Acre (Boulevard) kind of beer from this. It was. But way worse. Not very balanced and not much in terms of hops and the wheat was a little funky and only citrus was oranges on the finish.

NICELY FRAGRANT WITH CITRUS HOP AND A BIT of tangerine flower. flavor matches aroma and it is substantial and satisfying. body is full with the wheat and hops adding much character. bitter and matched with tang and a bit of sweetness and red grapefruit. good stuff and they did not have to hammer the abv which makes it nicely session able - if it wasn’t so satisfying.

Golden color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy and citrusy. Taste is nicely balanced with a subtle hint of oranges. Very good--drinkable and reminds me of spring.

Neato. It’s really quite good for a wheat with lots of very citrusy hop aroma punctuated by the smell of wheat. Taste is how I remember Blue Moon tasting about 10 years ago. I completely understand why this style of beer caught on in the first place...

Cloudy, yellow-orange pour with a thin and creamy white head. Aroma is of apricot and lemon. Flavor is apricot, wheat and lemon. Nice creamy body. Slightly astringent finish with lingering wheat. Overall, this is pretty tasty. Little off towards the end but overall very pleasant and the citrus flavor was nice and mellow.

6 pack from the brewery. Best before May 5, 2015. Four months on the best before date for a hoppy wheat beer is pretty generous. Anyway, Ophelia is a deep orange with a very cloudy body and a small, bubbly white head. Grapefruit is right up front in the aroma followed by papaya, wheat and melon. The body is pretty hefty considering the 5% abv. Lots of hop flavor comes through like citrus and papaya, but without an obscene amount of bitterness. The wheat is very, very obvious. They must’ve used a generous portion of unmalted wheat. It’s raw and grainy tasting like eating a fresh slice of wheat bread. It’s not a bad thing. Finish is citrusy, almost limey, with tropical notes. Ophelia is a wheat beer that is rough around the edges, but doesn’t have any unpleasant qualities. The hop character is quite nice. This is one of my preferred offerings from Breckenridge.

Wow the ratings for this are all over. Pours a hazy golden. Nice aroma of grass and wheat. Taste is pleasant and well balanced with a bit of sweetness.
