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 oí the border-inspired dishes.

From 12oz bottle. Hazy light yellow/orange color with a thin white head. Aroma is OK, but has some slightly funky smell that is virtually undetectable in the taste. Thin mouthfeel with very light carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet, spicy, and with a delicious citrus tartness. Tastes of lemon orange cloves and wheat. Very little bitterness and virtually insignificant taste of hops from start through the finish. Finish is mostly of lemon citrus with clove overtones. Outstanding session beer and a real summer thirst quencher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (6939) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle from Beercraft in Rohnert Park, CA. Clear yellow-gold pour with a small white head. Nice clove aroma with some wheat, a bit of citrus, and a bit of banana. Pretty crisp on the palate - good carbonation and a touch of hop bite. Refreshing brew.

maltman53 (385) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Golden pour, wheaty, fruity, malt-forward nose, hints of orange peel and candied lemon drops, round palate, smooth finish. A good example of the American wheat version, more lemon than banana and clove. Serve with a slice of lemon!

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Firestone Walker Taproom, Buellton. An unclear orange to golden beer with a small white head. The aroma has a solid dose of orange, with banana and clove notes. Medium body, a bit low on carbonation considering the style. Cloves, banana and some orange and lemon in the flavor. Quite dry, thatís nice. Finishes as it starts. Not bad, just a little boring. 130809
