3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Overall a pretty good beer with the combination of wheat and hops. I enjoy this style and look forward to it, so I may be a little biased to the positive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of pale malt, icing sugar, wheat, yeast, fresh apples and a bit of noticeable hops. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive yeast and white pepper note at first with a little wheat, some alcohol and a good dose of hops at the tail end. Aftertaste shows a good complex finish with some dry grass and herbal notes, a little alcohol flavour and a good amount of wheat and malts with a nice hop balance. Overall, a fairly good wheat ale - representative of a relatively rarer style, but complete with good complexity and a nice fresh flavour - definitely worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 24-October-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 15-December-2012.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer is a very translucent amber color. The pour creates a thin white head and releases a bready aroma with caramel notes. The flavor begins slightly sweet with some grassiness. The crisp grain notes are balanced with citrus hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Best by date on the side: 01/24/13. A clear amber pour with a smallish off-white head. The crisp aroma features plenty of sweet cereal grains, mild caramel, a light breadiness, some lemon juice, and touches of zesty citrus rinds here and there. Goes down thin to medium-bodied and fairly crisp. Semi-sweet cereal grains start things off taste-wise. A BIG wheaty middle. Some lemon and zesty rinds at the end. Very grassy. Kinda refreshing, but ultimately quite forgettable.
