3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to both dcschiller and markwise for this one. The 750.mL bottle pours deep gold with dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up spicy hop notes, orange peel aromatic blooms and some sweet clean malts in the background. The taste is similar with crisp fresh notes of spicy hops and citrus hops sweetened nicely by some smooth sweet maltiness. In the background is a mild sensation of sort of herbally grassy earthiness adding additional depth to the experience. Damn tasty easy drinking hot weather beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Markwise! Pours a clear golden-orange color with a white head. Aroma is big on orange and wheat. Sweet with some bitterness, also some orange and chocolate? Thin bodied with a dry, bitter finish. Not bad, but didn’t love the overly bitter nature of this beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours unclear dark golden amber with a bubbly champagne appearance and bright white head with decent lacing. The aroma brings light yeast notes, almost funk at first and then some sweetness from the wheat style. The flavor starts out sweet almost like candi sugar which then lingers on the tongue for a bit and settles easily on a lighter than normal body for the wheat ale.

Copper/gold pour, white head. Aroma is loaded with wheat, crackery notes and nice citrus hops. Flavor is much hoppier than I expected with some wheat/caramel malt notes. Good summer drinker.
