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.

Tap takeover! Very good starter beer. Aroma of or ages and lemons in my opinion. Light yet refreshing. Reminds me of Paulner but more stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a refreshingly smooth beer with a clean finish. Great summer beer. Can be filling if you are up for more than a few.

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

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.

Bottle @ home. Unfiltered. Bright, cloudy, golden orange appearance with a slightly off-white head. Rich spicy clove, orange citrusy, juicy citrusy, wheat malty aroma that’s quite nice. A bit bready, spicy yeasty, big orange/lemon citrusy flavor with lots of vanilla, banana and clove elements. Really tastes like they used a German Hefe yeast to me. Definitely better than the previous version and an excellent wheat beer.

Very nice wheat. Tastes like a hefe style, very light and refreshing, totally delicious. Feels like a wine-y acidity on the tip of my tongue. A step above the average wheat!

Tap at Firestone Walker. Pours a lightly cloudy yellow/gold color with a nice white head. This version is way better than the old. A great aroma bursts with citrus notes, wheat, spices, orange peel. Flavor is smooth, crisp, hoppy, citrus, tropical fruit, wheat. Damn fine little beer here!

New version, debuted at a tasting event at BJs Brewery in Chandler, AZ in April. Similar yellow hazy pour. There is more citrus and spice notes to go with the banana flavor and flavor just bursts. They improved a good beer to a great one. New weapon against drinking in the summer heat.

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.
