Thanks Justin! Meyer lemon aroma, some honeyed cereal. Hazy dark gold. Creamy and robust in body and quite a lot of wheat character that stops short of heavy or sticky and finishes a touch dry, keeping it very quaffable.

Bottle, sample. Pours a very intriguing hazy, bright white-gold. Aroma is quite mild, some faint spices, wheat, lemony hops. Flavor is also quite mellow, but quite refreshing. Wheat flavor is primary, followed by a well-integrated blend of orange fruit and spices. Juicy, but a bit light for my tastes. Might drink well in the summer.

Number 1!! 12 oz. bottle

Appearance: Pours a cloudy murky yellow gold with a subsiding white head.

Aroma: Light banana, big cloves and sturdy bread notes.

Taste: Bready yeasty goodness, banana and vanilla finishing with a small but noticeable hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Thick and fizzy and tingly.

Overall: A very spicy wheat ale. It has never been my style, but I can appreciate a well made one. This one is definitely well made, and not lacking in the flavor department.
