3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
15 oz. can pours a hazy orange/golden color with tiny but persistent white head and practically no lacing. Aroma is hoppy enought that I thought this might be another IPA/APA. Lots of floral hops, pine resin, and grapefruit on the nose., but with enough grass to remind me that this is supposed to be a wheat beer. Taste is on the bitter side with a long dry finish. Body is light to medium with average carbonation. This one wan’t what I expected, for better or worse, but didn’t make me say WOW.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very hazy golden coloured body with a honey glow and a thinnish, half centimetre tall white head. Aroma of bright grassy and herbal hops, wheat, grass, alcohol, bunches of yeast, bananas and some clove spiciness. Medium-bodied; Astringent spice, yeast, grass and herbal elements show the wheat style up front, but the dry and floral qualities make this feel like almost a saison or even a belgian single. Aftertaste is pleasant and rather complex with the tastes of yeast and cloves that give way to a light and airy wheat flavour with a good deal of hops. Overall, a nice beer with a good flavour profile and still light enough to drink on a warm summer day, even when it’s around 80degrees F and you watched WWII planes go by the capital of the USA earlier in the day. I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Fairfax, Virginia on 15-November-2014 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 08-May-2015.

Decent wheat beer. Sweet up front, hops in the back. Total outdoor beer. Really drinkable.

New Beer Distributors, NYC can: Pours a dull, ugly hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is a wee bit of hops, some sugar, and a light fruitiness. Taste is much the same with a slight bit of hops in the finish. Slightly sweet. Not that memorable.

pours hazy very pale yellow with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. light floral and peppery citrus, lean maltiness, spicy wheat - low-fat crackers, touch of melons and other tropical fruits. light carbonation, light body, dry and crisp peppery-citrusy finish. wheat highlights beautifully a subtle peppery crackery wheat and lightly and fragrant enough hopped wheat ale. solid.

2/4/15. 16oz can from Five Points. Lightly hazed golden pour with a small white head, good lacing. Something about this aroma screams old or poorly executed to me - aged, floral hops, sour milk, a boozy sense. I know this was pretty fresh at the store, so not their fault at least. Pretty meh flavor, malty, vinous, earthy, floral, finishes weirdly grapey, vinous, almost a bit tart like a sharp dry white wine. Confused.

Served from can at Ballydoyle Downers Grove. Clear golden beer color under a foamy head. Zesty citrus smell, and yeast in the background. Light malts with a bit of wheat malt spice. Prickly bubbles. Bitter and citrus hop taste. Refreshing basic wheat beer. Some yeast bite to the end.
