3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma - dry hops, alcohol, wheat, and Belgian yeast.
Appearance - body has a cloudy ocher brown, with good nucleation. The white head is about 1" and slowly fades. Some lacing.
Taste - has dry hops and a faint wheat taste, with a slight roast. Yeast is of a Belgian nature. Interesting, slightly confusing mix.
Palate - medium body, slightly oily and yet smooth texture, average carbonation, the finish is abrupt, but the beer soaks the mouth with some ascorbic acid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
7.5%ABV. Wheat Ale
Tapped out Amber. 18ºSRM.
Nose has some sweet, beery, spicy aroma notes, cinnamon comes to mind. Slight woody, oaky aromas. There is a bit of sweet starch like a sweet potato.
Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has dark malts with rye bread, black bread, nuts with chestnuts and acorns. Alcoholic palate is well-represented.
Hops come in a the end to prolong the finish a little, making it a medium bitter ride.
Not sure the dry-hopping did very much for the flavor or the aroma.

Weird and a little skunky, but it’s got some decent hop bitterness to it and the crisp maltiness works solidly despite the weird nose. I’ll hedge.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- The bottle says "Product of Belgium." Cloudy dark amber color, thick 1" beige head, sheets of lace. Taste is malt and wheat that grow sweeter through the swallow, then move to sharp carbonation along with mild dark fruit, followed by light hops. Big body for a wheat ale, but very easy to quaff. I like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared during Scopey’s 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Cheers! Pours cloudy, dark gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds rich pale bread, yeast, florals. Medium sweet flavor, quite hoppy, with notes of pine, some alcohol, dank grass. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish rich citrus fruits. Not bad overall.

bottle at home from alesela (i’ve sat on this for too long probably
opaque dark burgundy brown with thin lacing, rich fruity nose, like a syrrah. Full bodied, wheat spices, stone fruit (think plums and nectarines) quite heavy, moderate carbonation, fruity & complex. Need to get hold of a fresh bottle but aged as it is a delicious drop.

Pours a brown body with a medium head. Faint and a little sour aroma. Nice and well balanced taste with a bit of sourness and barrel warmth.

Ganska fyllig och rätt mycket av det mesta. Mörk och härlig färg. Helt okej, men inget toppbetyg.
