2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a lightly hazy golden-yellow color with a quarter-inch thick white head that quickly faded to a tight ring. Aroma of light maltiness initially, with a touch of biscuit paired with a moderate fruitiness including some apricot, as well as a lightly spicy yeastiness. Smooth, lightly biting lemon on the entry with some sweet fruit (apricot, orange) pairs with a light wheatiness that carries into a lightly spicy, dry finish with a touch of hops. Relatively full mouth feel that is still moderately dry thanks to the hopping. Overall, it is certainly simple and doesn’t show complex layers of flavors, but it’s a nice combo of simple flavor and refreshing crispness that would make it a nice warm day beer, I just wish it wasn’t 6%. As it warms it does get a bit sweet and seems to lose balance, so I guess you have to drink it quick.

Bottle via the brewery. Pours a very light yellow with big white head. Aroma is hazy wheat and lemon. Taste is a middle of the road wheat beer with some slight lemon and citrus. Notes don’t show it being much different from the current iteration.

Nice summer wheat beer, nothing overly exciting. Tastes like a standard Belgian wheat (blue moon).

12oz bottle pour into a large tulip. Bright golden color with an expected haze. The head is a pale butter color and quickly dissipates after the pour. The flavor is stereotypical American unfiltered wheat. Meh.

Pours golden with a thin white head. Smells of wheat, hops, banana, some citrus and spice. Tastes pretty good. The most complex wheat beer I’m had. It had a good spicing and a nice underlying banana.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From prior tastings (the old version). Cloudy yellow pour with a white head, Banana and wheat flavor notes on the nose and smilar on the taste with some lemony acidic qualities. Very nice summer beer.
