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.

Scipio (719) - 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.

ericdevin (885) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. 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, very unique, a great summer beer.

wlajwl (4053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Aroma is spices, malts and a hint of citrus. The flavor is spices, bananas, mild sweetness and a slightly dry, malty finish.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a finger of white head, settles in seconds with no lacing. Aroma is wheat, sweety, fruity, banana. Flavor is wheaty with a strong banana kick, mildly bread/dough, malt finish. Nice wheaty flavor profile. Very pleasant, sweet, and drinkable, a little light but satisfying. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. Enjoyable and smooth, a well done american wheat ale.

Mora2000 (5855) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has some nice coriander and orange notes. Flavor is the same with the juicy orange citrus character really coming through strongly, as well as some nice wheat notes. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 13/20
Doofgoblin (335) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2013
For a wheat, it’s good. Pours a slightly murky golden with a head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is wheat, orange, lemon rind, and faintly clove. The clove note is more noticeable on the exhale but still faint. Taste is sweet, wheat, bubblegum, and orange rind. Finishes smooth and lingering. If you really like wheat brews, this one is a good one to try.

Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with quickly dissipating head. Has a faint aroma of clove and wheat with an overall sweet smell. Slight citrus in the taste but mostly sweet clove and bubble gum like on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Hazy, dirty, dark yellow with a thick, lacy white head. Aroma is light wheat. Flavor is light bubblegum, light sweet wheat malt and some earthiness. Very good hefe and a refreshing easy drinker.

Hair6a11 (1387) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle; Pour is fairly murky gold with a modest white head in this glass; retention is poor here. Unimpressive. The nose is hefe heavy I suppose; yeasty, spicy, with a bit of fruit esters. The flavor profile reveals a balanced malt backbone to counter the hefe character, but the wheat ale is the disappointing thing for me ; the hop presence is quite lacking - but its an easy drinker.

Cavie (3842) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Tap at Live Oak. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange-gold color with a light head. Aroma is sweet citrus fruit with orange, wheat tones and gentle malted grain. Flavor is again malted grain, citrus orange peel, slight sweetness and a finish of dry grain. Flavorful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
