on tap in PDX pub.
Much darker than anticipated - copper with etched surface foam and the beer is quite diaphanous. The nose is weak, some lemon faintly behind the wheat character. The flavor is really not impressive to me - wheat, sharp - this is the approach to tartness, but I found it less refreshing and more astringent in this setting. The wheat was still too sweet and there were some yeasty flavors like coriander. Medium carb on full body with a slick finish. I did not care for this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Firetap. Hazy golden yellow with a thick, pure white head and visible carbonation. Light aroma of bread, banana, clove and lemon. Flavor is light wheat bread with a tart yeast bite. Medium to light in body with active carbonation and a thin, slightly watery mouth feel. Kind of a mix between an American Wheat and German Hef, the yeast character is pretty light but adds a nice tartness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Part of the 9hr epic solo drunkfest in Portland in Nov, 2010. Finally bowed down to a sampler tray so I can somewhat stumble out of here. Hazy gold with a white cap. Has a grainy aroma, light banana, more grains, light clove and cereals. The taste is average for a US Hefe. Weak and light citrus, lemon, grains, tart, cereal - boring. Waay too much bananaish for me. Finishes soft with a light and long lingering spice.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a hazy yellow color with a pretty hefty white head with good retention. The nose is light wheat along with clove and banana. A bit of bubblegum. The taste is pretty yeast driven with a bit of slightly-sweet wheat there as well. Good body and carbonation; a nice summer drinker.
