COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Firestone Walker presents Solace, an ode to warmer weather in the northern hemisphere. A hint of citrus fruit and clove aroma are followed by tangy dry malt flavor and a silky finish making it an approachable and refreshing session beer. We bring you this beer unfettered, a craftily unfiltered ale full of flavor and perfectly constructed to compliment those lazy warm days ahead. Ideal for washing down fish tacos or other south o’ the border-inspired dishes.

Draft at a local. Pours a medium, short lived, ivory head, with some lacing, over a slightly cloudy, dark yellow (SRM 4) body.....nose is banana, bubblegum, clove.....taste is malts with banana, bubblegum, light clove, hints of citrus......mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds a tingling spritz on the tongue. The brewery says this is a summertime fusion beer. It is more or less an admixture of a Hefeweizen and a Witbier. It tends toward the Hefe, but with more citrus and a little less banana, bubblegum, it could be called a Wit. Either way it is a very nice summer beer. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Pint pour at Kite & Key in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia. Not a straight weizen, but a wheat ale with a slight head and substantial wheat body and fine flavor; very slightly sweet for the style, but overall very well done. Another very good beer from FW.

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 31, 2012
Draught at Brewster’s LAX. Nice cloudy orange-gold with a fine head. Wheaty nose, weizen-like esters, clove, banana. A bit clean. Very weizen-like flavor, clove and banana and a bit of chocolate. Clean and light though. Tasty, very bready—or cake, and apricots. Basically a take on a weizen.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle at home, from my favorite Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours hazy gold, thin white head, poor lacing. Nose is lemon, wheat, coriander; nicely spicy, but really doesn’t get my blood pumping. Flavours of spicy lemon, cream, dusty with plenty of coriander. Nice.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Sampled on 7/21/2012. This American Wheat Ale pours a light gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing and nice retention. The aroma is wheaty and sweet. A medium bodied Wheat Ale. The malts are fruity, wheaty and sweet. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. Very similar of the earlier version of this beer, without the banana and clove aspect. Nice session beer good for a hot summer day. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Draught at Rogue, San Francisco
Aroma has some peaches, hay and wheat. Also some tart citrus. Flavour is sweetish with peach essence, some toffee and wheat. A bit watery and boring but refreshing anyway.

pinkzambia (1456) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Tap: Cloudy dark gold with a foamy smaller head. Soothing aroma of grainy breakfast cereal and mild bananas. Sweet flavors of bananas and cream soda with a bit of a soapy aftertaste.
