Lots of good hops, in a bland wheat brew. Too clear blond color. An AB idea of cloudy, farm aroma, idea of a wheat beer.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with a thin buff head that leaves some good lacing. Strong aroma is wheaty with a citrus undertone. Wheaty flavor has malty and subtle citrus underpinnings. Texture is firm, lively and fizzy. I got yer wet hot wheat right eeyah, guvnah!

Sampled at the Naperville Summer Ale Festival. That I passed this over many times in the last 3 months speaks volumes about my opinion of this brewer. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and husk. Flavor is yeasty and wheaty with strong husk notes, medium hop presence. Medium bodied, above average carbonation, finishes bitter. Overall, pretty meh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a pretty solid APA like wheat beer from Finch’s. It is a cloudy Pilsener yellow color in the glass and the head is small and soapy but rather long lived. This is definitely a hop centric brew w/ lots of resinous pine notes and a bit of citrus. It also has a fairly strong fruity yeast profile as well, It is a moderately carbonated beer w/ a wheaty thickness that gets a bit heavy by halfway through the glass on a hot day. It is rather dry and finishes w/ just a touch of lingering citrus rind bitterness. This is pretty typical of Finch’s beers in so far as it is pretty good w/ no real off flavors anything wrong w/ it but just doesn’t have anything particularly stellar about it. It is OK across the board.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can into pint glass; no can dating, but was released recently. Pours hazy bright gold color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, tangerine, floral, grass, light pine, wheat, cracker, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with dank citrus/grassy hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, wheat, cracker, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, wheat, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dank citrus/grassy hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish, Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hoppy pale wheat ale. Nice juicy citrus/grassy hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Orange pour with a smaller head. Loads of tangerine in the aroma and taste. Easy drinking wheat with some hop edge. Drinking it on a pontoon, so all is good.
