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 hazy golden color with a white head. Wheat, orange, some spice. Like most wheat beers, this one is very sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

degbert (1114) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very attractive hazy yellow-gold with a light, cream head. Nose is mostly citrus, lime and Meyer lemon predominant. Some sweetness on the front of the palate, with a rich complex toastiness behind it; finish is wide and fruity with a very faint bitter echo. Finishes tight and complete. Multilayered in a genre that is often insipid. Very good.

GIJOE (631) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden color. Minimal white head that’s all but gone within a minute. Smells a little grassy with some citrus notes and a hint of spice (clove, perhaps). Flavor is mild sweetness, with some good bitterness in mid palate. Banana esters come up through the nose. Medium body, lively carbonation. Nice wheat beer.

Cloudy tangerine orange color with pillowy white head. Heady clove and banana aromas. Full bodied palate of wheat, clove, banana and a hint of tangerine. Awesome

Scipio (699) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Pours a bright and hazy golden with a very thin white head. The aroma has a very Belgian impression to it. I find yeast, spice, wheat, and banana combined to give a somewhat bubblegum nose. Taste is big on wheat initially. Additionally, there is banana, orange, lemon, and yeast. Some very minor spicy impressions. Long aftertaste of banana. Medium in body with a thin texture. Carbonation is more soft, actually leaning a bit towards being flat. Not bad.
