4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy blonde. Thin head. Dusty yeast and floral hops make for a fun, perfumey aroma. Dry. Spicy, with more floral, citrusy hops. Good brew, nicely balanced with a slightly minerally mouthfeel. Not the usual humble wheat ale, that’s for sure.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Hunahpuh day...forgot who brought this out but thank you whoever you are. Hazy, honey-gold. Mild, understated, dry aroma of kumquat peel, grapefruit pith, and a bushel of raw, earthy hops. Soft, very hoppy palate that mellows out at the end. Brilliant hop character. Oodles of fun. Could drink a lot of this. Memorable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by mattyb83, pours a hazy golden orange with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon, oranges, spice, wheat, with a dry tartness, and slight pepper. Taste has a tart acidic bitterness, pepper and lemon. Decent drinkable, like the dryness of this wheat.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Gianni! Slightly hazy, straw yellow, with some golden colored highlights. A small, frothy white head is also present. Looks like a wheat beer. Golden, effervescent, frothy white head. Smells like a wheat beer as well. Wheat, some lemon, maybe a bit of lime, and overall fairly sweet. Taste is smooth, cream wheat, a bit of bitterness, some fruit snacks (shark bites maybe?), dry in the finish, and refreshing! Light to medium bodied. Damn this is pretty drinkable. The dryness of it is a bit strange, but seriously this is great! Thanks Gianni.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from DeCicco. Hazy gold with considerable effervescence. Puffy white head, frothy and large-bubbled, considerable spidery lacing. Nose shows light tartness, quite dry with a bit of wheat and a lightly rancid note. Flavor shows more citrus and grain, the finish is toast and old, papery qualities with a bit of diacetyl showing up after warmth. Sickly oily palate. Light profile murked by oppressive body. Not enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! Pours a hazy, bright straw gold color with a small bone white head. Aroma of lots of herbs, lemon zest, coriander, pepper, wheat, and potpourri. Flavor of wheat, peppery spices, lots and lots of lemon, bread, soab, herbs, and wood chips. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, soapy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Veered a little too much into soapy territory- maybe too many muddled spices- but otherwise a really cool wheat ale.
