COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the sun starts to peek out from around the dark winter clouds it is a clear reminder that brighter days lie ahead. Brewed with pale & wheat malts for a refreshing backbone & hopped with some bright citrusy American hops this beer will help you fight off the sun all season long.

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden yellow color with paler straw-like edges and a half finger foam head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Floral earthy hop aroma with hints of grass and soil countered by subtle citrus, bready yeast and pale malt. The hop profile is one dimensional and lacking in the citrus quality that the label promises. Mostly grassy and resinous with faint lemon pith character. The wheat malts are pretty faint as well with subtle hints of bread and banana. Pale biscuit like malts are more prominent. Light body with spritzy carbonation and strong earthy hop bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes into a very dry finish. Dry and slightly sticky with lots of earthy soil and grassy pine needle flavor. There’s also some zesty spice that gives off some peppery coriander flavor. A bit more citrus character than in the nose but it seems like it’s coming more from the wheat beer portion than the hop profile. Some bready yeast and biscuit malt followed by tart lemon juice and sourdough bread. Overall, I wasn’t a fan of this beer. It’s lacking in complexity and the flavors clash with each other making it kind of harsh and tough to drink.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright yellow color with a huge creamy yellow-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tart, citrus, fruity hops and a hint of pepper. The flavor was dryish, tart and chalky with citrus, perfume and vague fruity hops. Medium length finish. Light to medium body. Ok.

Thin bright white head of fine bubbles. Weak aroma. Light lemon and citrus along with some light grains. Color is a hazy bright gold. Fizzy in the mouth and quite refreshing. More citrus, light malts and grains and a moderate bitterness the sneaks up on you late and dries out your mouth. Finishes pretty clean and light bitterness. A good summertime brew. Wish I had the sunblock oiut with me today crabbing. Brings new meaning to the word red-neck!

Pretty good not your Daddy’s American Wheat. Lots of flavor, lots of hoppiness. Big malty presence. The wheat effects seem quite subdued actually. A bit of bubblegum and some floral presence.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
A pale gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A light floral hop aroma, hints of orange blossom and rose petals! There is of course a citrus fruit element in the background too. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is mild but lingering hop, the citrus flavours take precident with pithy bitter grapefruit and orange, this is followed by a hint of the floral elements from the aroma. He finish is long and hoppy. Draught at The Beer Authority,New York.

Totally quaffable summery beer. I like these hoppy wheat beers in general. This one is well balanced but perhaps a tad bland. Still pleasant and certainly a crowd pleaser.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a creamy white head. Aroma of honey, banana, and clove with banana, clove flavor, and a slight hint of honey. Nice summer beer.

Not impressed. A little of the grapefruit but missing the beer flavor that shows quality. Tap

6-pack from the corner, drank over the course of a week or so while dicking around online. Light color. Nose is light fruit/grass, some banana I think. Slightest bit musty. Ripe banana taste, little bit on the cloying side but gets better as you go. Not a bad springtime beer for the apartment.

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).
