2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a murky golden color with a very thin white head and not much in the way of lacing. Both the nose and the taste are pretty much the same in that they really don’t have anything besides some white bread and a hint of wheat. No real fruit, yeast, or hops; this is just pretty plain. Fairly light body. This is quaffable, but one is enough.
Serving type: on-tap

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewpub...Pours a dark cloudy honey gold with disappointing retention and lacing...A very light aroma of lots of honey, wheat and clove. Nice, refreshing, but light...The taste is light wheat with a huge spicey kick, not really expecting it after the aroma and its slightly offputting. Evern if I was aware of the spice I don’t think i’d like it the way it is used in this honey wheat beer. There is a weird metallic finish which is not good.
This is a decent wheat beer with a kick, great aroma, but a taste that has two disappointments that drags it down a bit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is light orange/citrus. Color is hazy orange/yellow. Taste is wheat, malty, with a crisp hoppy finish. Moderate hops, but not too bitter. Smooth taste, 1 finger head dissipates to small ring. This one is great in all categories. A must try! A

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a shaker at 40°. Color is a hazy golden with good carbonation and thick head. Aroma is a sweet citrus scent. Lighter medium body and a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is slightly sweet with the taste of grain and lemon zest then a touch of spice. In the after taste some bitterness comes in along with a sour note. Overall its just an odd take on a Wheat Ale.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow-gold color with a thin and creamy off-white head that diminishes quickly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, wheat and grass. Light body with flavors of citrus and wheat along with some grassy hops and malt. The finish is short and fruity. Slightly above average overall.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a bomber. Pour is hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is light wheat and spice. Flavor is wheat and grass with no spice present. Pretty thin on the palate. The most enjoyable thing about this beer is the appearance. It’s all downhill after that.
