4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the bottle. Pours like a wheat, unfiltered, straw colour. Aroma is a lot weaker in the banana and Clove than most wheats. Flavor is great. Palate is full bodied, finishes oily. Overall a great summer beer. Very sad I didn’t grab it before, I thought it was a cream ale, I had it confused with a beer from Anderson valley.

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 pours hazy yellow with a white to off-white head. Aroma is wheat, banana, mango, vanilla, and a small amount of lemon. Flavor shows the same. Overall body is moderate weight with a creamy soft mouthfeel and lightly bitter finish. Pretty interesting.

Pours a hazy yellowish orange color with decent head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is zesty orange peel and tropical spices. Taste is like a spicy hefeweizen on the drier side with a nice crisp aftertaste. Very easy to drink and very refreshing.

I thought this beer was excellent. The bartender didn’t know much about it - an unfiltered ale is how he put it. But it is more than that. It has a really interesting and complex wheat beer flavor that is uncommon in most seasonal summer offerings aimed at the large audience. Think about your last Blue Moon, then step it up about ten notches.

On tap at the brewery, cloudy, golden orange with small white head. Nose of citrus, mostly lemon, and the wheat. Tart and bitter to taste, with an edge of sweetness. Very lively, with a clean aftertaste. Very good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice clear tan yellow/gold with a decent amount of white foamy head that dissapated quickly and left a little bit of lacing. Smells of tropical fruit, namely jackfruit, wheaty malt, and a light aroma of banana. Taste has a lot of banana and tropical fruity flavors, though not jackfruit in the taste. Very rich tasting beer, full bodied and creamy in texture, which is delicious. Hops and citrus help keep this beer from being too creamy. The clove and other spices are evident as the beer is swallowed. Carbonation produces a light tingle when first sipped, but isn’t really present otherwise. Highly drinkable beer, as the finish is crisped by the hops that are there. Well balanced, tasty wheat beer.
