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-orange color, thin head with big bubbles. Aroma is subdued, pleasent, with citrus and cloves. The flavor is similar. Not great. It’s no Oberon.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 12 oz bottle from Wilbur’s. Golden and slightly hazy with a white head. Citrus fruity aroma with spices, bready malts and light banana. Light body with a soft silky smooth feel. Very refreshing flavor similar to the aroma with a fruity tangy finish. Wow, I need to stock up on this for summer!

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2012
A finger of head on a dark straw colored body. Aroma of honey and grain, light and airy. Flavor of lemons, apples and honey. Nice and balanced. Fizzy texture but carbonation remains at a reasonable level. Light to medium body. An above average ale.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Bottle. This one pours a hazy golden yellow with a medium white head that is gone pretty quickly. Aroma is clove and spice, banana, wheat and a bit of caramel. Taste moderately sweet. There is clove, lemon tartness, mixed citrus fruitiness along with the underlying wheat bread notes. Finishes a bit more sweet than tart and relatively clean.

DMLINAZ (284) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Pours golden/copper with a white fluffy head. Great yeasty aroma with wheat. Flavor has lots of yeast, wheat, floral notes; has a sense of a hefeweizen. Enjoyable. (@home)

Pours a slightly hazy orange golden. Plenty of wheat and citrus hops on the nose. Plenty of wheat and toasted goodness, banana and clove flavor. Wet on the tongue.
