phaleslu (7546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Keir - thanks again, Keir! Pours a clear, pale gold with a finger of white head that leaves a lasting cap along with ropes and spots of lace. Notes of tea, wheat, lemon zest, grass, bread, and mellow, coriander-like spice. Light-bodied, with a dry, wheaty, mildly bitter mouthfeel. Refreshing wheat ale.

vyvvy (4673) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours hazy yellow / orange with large soapy white head. The aroma has lots of citrus, powder, perfume, smooth wheat, cream and a bit of peach. Quite nice and inviting. It has a fairly light body with a good amount of frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with dry malt, minerals, grapefruit zest and some earthy hops notes. The finish is very zesty and refreshing and some sulfur notes come in as well. Pretty nice low abv wheat beer with a kick.

Draft at Bigelo’s. So impressed with what Excel is doing. This beer is on the sweet side. It could be an IPA but the wheat notes are interesting. Citrus flavors including grapefruit and more. Caramel and crackers. A bit of spice. Not sure this is a wheat ale but it is nice.

Bif (1698) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2014
On tap at Shamrocks. Served a hazy golden color with a thick head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus and fresh grain. taste of citrus, a bit of malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness that lingers. Fairly light body and a grainy texture. Decent beer but missing a bit of bang.

brokensail (13278) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap @ Bailey’s Range. White head to go with a hazy but bright golden pour. Fair amount of grass, pine, and lots of orange zest. A little bit of earthy hops. Some cracker malt, too. Flavor has a nice bitterness to it, mostly earth and grass. Plenty of orange peel and zest. Dry cracker malt and a bit of bread sweetness.
