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.

pours a golden yellow with a small white head and some lacing. aroma is of citrus, some faint cloves, faint banana, and bready malts, and some wheat yeast. Flavor is of citrus, some cloves, light banana, baked bread, and some yeast. Has a medium-light body with a nice creamy mouthfeel and a dry, refreshing finish. overall, a pretty good wheat ale and a nice summer seasonal.

Anova167 (287) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Pretty decent wheat beer. Nothing special, but solid and easy drinking. Cloudy orange pour with a clean aroma of light spice and lemony citrus. Flavor is lemon/orange with a touch of clove. Could have been a bit more carbonated for my liking.

peteinSD (1377) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Tap at brewery. Hazy yellow/orange pour with a thin coating of white foam. Aroma is clean, light clove, minimal malt, some spice, and a subtle bitterness on the finish. Taste is clean banana and clove with some spice and a smidge of bitterness on the finish. Clean and light mouthfeel. Nice wheat beer.

CampesinoTino (769) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle. Appearance is a pale yellowish straw color with an inch of off-white head. Predominately citrus, wheat and clove notes in the aroma. Flavor is a blend of lemon, biscuit malt and clove with a little bit of honey in the background. Mouthfeel is smooth and full-bodied with a clean, dry finish. Goes down easy as a good summer brew should.

after4ever (6165) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2012
Draft at elliott bay pizza. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a fizzy light white head that goes away. Mild tangy orange and wheat nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Mild mid palate and finish, wheat and orange. Pleasant but unremarkable.

3fourths (8096) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2012
draft. cloudy orange with a small white head and little retention. doughy, fruit-focused nose presents your typical orange marmalade and wheat/dough/bread with mild peppery phenols. medium-high sweetness with low bitterness and relatively heavy body results in a somewhat goopy, thick and filling texture. dishsoap esters grow with warmth and time. a fairly typical and unassuming rendition of an unfiltered wheat beer.
