2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose of sweet lemon and wheat, some creamy hefeweizen yeast, and a twang of oranges. Flavor isn’t much different: creamy, sweetened wheat and oranges, medium to light body, somewhat oily and syrupy while still being a bit thin, with a chewy/chunk wheat character throughout. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Actually a fairly refreshing & tasty American wheat ale. The body is a somewhat hazed, vary pale straw color with a creamy white head that performs some thick lacing. The aroma is a honey sweetened wheat with a subtle amount of fruitiness, bananas & pears. Very smooth to the palate, the honeyed wheat takes over most of the flavor, the fruit taking a background role. It’s got a mild, wheat flakes finish with a meager citric tartness. Okay.

Growler thanks to Turd. Pours a cloudy light yellow and a thin head. Aroma is yeasty, clove-like, soapy, and citrusy-lemon with light wheat tanginess. Ok wheaty doughy flavors, light citrus, phenolic yeast and a bit dull and faded finihs- turns a bit watery and slick.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 Re-rate. Probably one of my favorite brews from them. Not saying much. Pours a cloudy lemon rind yellow with a one finger foamy white head. Nose is earthy and wheaty with some yeast, isoamyl acetate, clove, and citrus zest. Flavor shows some mild clove and spice with banana in the background and a mild tartness. Round crisp mouthfeel with a mild tartness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Nose is wheat, lemon, citrus and yeast. Flavor is similar. Very clean, very easy drinking. Didn’t taste much of banana flavors I am used to tasting if my hefes. Could of sworn this was just an american wheat ale. Solid effort from carolina brewery and much more drinkable than a few of their offerings.

Growler, sampled at the 1st Annual Shenandoah Beer Throwdown, courtesy of TURDFERGUSON. Thanks, Sam! Pours a hazy golden color; fluffy white head with good retention and mixed-bubbled lacing. Wheatiness, light citrus, and doughy yeast in the aroma; dry, crisp, husky. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy yeastiness, citrus, minerals, and breadiness upfront; average carbonation; light acidity coming through; very drinkable stuff. Medium finish: breadiness, wheat, and citrus; ends quite dry and crisp.

pint at Pittsboro location. Ok aroma, sweet, Toasted wheat, clove, citrus. Hazed golden yellow color, small head, no lace. Bitter sharp flavor.Like aroma though the yeast characteristics are more pronounced. Lite body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, Spicy dry finish. This may have tasted better due to circumstance, flavor had a lot going on. Classic American hefe.
