3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip.
My pour is a golden orange color, slightly hazy, with a gentle white froth that leaves a bit of lace down the glass.
The wheat and grains in the aroma are cut by the bitter curacao and mellowed with a bit of fruity orange zest.
There is definitely a bitterness here that I do not usually get out of wheat beers. It starts out with a basic wheat flavor, with the usual associated sweetness enhanced by a nice orangey zest. The bitterness that comes in has a grassy character to it, and there is a pithy citrus rind flavor at the end.
The curacao peel definitely adds a bit of flavor in an interesting way, and it also adds some oiliness to the mouthfeel. The carbonation is mellow and smooth.
Overall this is a nice beer, one that I could consume in quantity if handed to me.
