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 light orange color, pretty much no head. Aroma is rich and sweet, lots of wheat and orange going on. Body is surprisingly lively, finish is dry, almost tart, little to no bitterness. Very nice

Dark pour, great malt character with a summer crispness. Not a big hop character but enough bittering for a hop head such as myself.

Bottle at OC Powers, Colorado Springs. Aroma is wheat, citrus and a hint of clove. Pours golden colored and the unfiltered cloudiness and a minimal head. Taste is hefeweizen-like with strong wheat flavors with notes of citrus and a bit of clove. Easy drinking, smooth summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrFecesious (942) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
On tap at platypus pub. Cloudy yellow/orange with a thick, frothy egg white cap. As it settles, it's clinging to the glass in almost as solid fashion. Aroma is earthy, citrus rind, pepper, hay, yeast. Taste is citrus forward, hay, bit of pepper. Deliciously sweet. Crisp and quenching.

Leafs93 (1658) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Philly Beer Week: Pours hazy deep orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is citrus, earthy and grains. Taste is sweet with tart citrus. Light bodied with a sticky finish, well rounded for a wheat.

jgb9348 (4694) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Real nice hazy rich blonde coloured body with a five centimetre tall large white head - very nice. Aroma of pale malt, citrus, coriander seed and tons of yeast and bubble gum - very nice and strong. Medium-bodied; Light flavour of wheat, yeast, bananas, bubble gum, coriander seed, clove, citrus - perhaps a bit of curacao and a lot of herbal hops. Aftertaste is smooth and pleasant with a good sweetness coupled with the nice yeast and sweetness balance. Overall, a great beer for the summer, especially here in California - very nice to try and I wasn’t expecting it to be so good! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased earlier today at Bottle Craft in San Diego, California on 06-June-2013 for US$1.80 sampled in my hotel room here in San Diego on 06-June-2013.
