3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 Tap pour at the Mtc Office. Hazy amber with short head that dissipates quickly. Nose of banana with some citrus from the hops. Taste is refreshing citrus, mostly lemon. Having played 18 holes in 80+ temps, very refreshing! (Re-rated w/o golf but with warm temps).

Canít bieve I didnít rate this during my early days on site when I was all in with the captain. Hazy yellow pour with nose of banana and cloves. Tastes of banana, clove, honey, wheat, and herbal finish. Thin but satisfying palate. Fine summer beer even now itís oddsly cold out

From Hawthornes in Philly. Summer in a bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. The aroma is malt with a hint of fruit. The flavor is lemony citrus with a bit of orange. Slightly tart with a nice clean feel. A bit thin but that is to be expected. A very fine brew for the hot weather.

Pale and malty flavor. Tangy and citrusy. Very sour. Too much so for me. The flavor combinations do not do well on my palate. Bitterness is evident. Itís very earthy and the artificial fruit throughout donít go well together. Sun block is a good deScriptor here actually.

Pours clear blonde. Smell is weak, some malts. Taste is bit sweet, some aromamalts and slightly a hoppy character. Rather thin, but good carbo. I can imagine it wouls make a nice drink in the summer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (12 oz) bought @ RP Beer Emporium. Based on the last rating, this might be from last summer so quite old already.
Appearance: Clear pale golden with a large quickly diminishing but easy to revive white head and some lacing.
Aroma: The fact this light beer is quite olad might not be a problem after even if the aromatic hops are mostly gone because it appears that really nice herbal brettanomyces are taking most of the place now. Combined with light citrusy notes and light spiciness, this is quite interesting.
Taste: The herbal brettanomyces are there too, though they are a lot less powerful. Thereís also citrus, light wheat acidity and mild peppery notes.
Palate: Very light body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Dry and mildly herbal finish.
Overall: The body is very light so this is like a diluted Orval, but still a diluted Orval is better than 90% of the beers. Amazing drinkability. An old beer supposed to be past his prime that turned out to be quite a fun one.

Ehhh. Bottled. Hazy pale color big head. Aroma is hops, some weak banana and cloves. Wet cardboard. Taste is mild hops up front, wheaty clove and banana in the middle and mild hops finish. Disappointing.

A hazed blonde wheat ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light fruity malt with grassy hops, ok. In mouth, an aggressive wheat ale with mineral notes, light Brett, grassy hop, veering on Orval. On tap at Coney Island on tap.

Tap, Light golden pour with light head and lace. Notes are tons of wheat, vanilla cream, and faint hops. Itís refreshing but sweet and filled with an abundance of fruity wheat. Finish is forgettable with nothing left behind on the palate.
