3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce can, no canning date that I could find. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a dark gold color with about a half inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like oranges, tangerines, wheat/grainy malt and a bit of peppery spice. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, although I think it smells a little better than it tastes. Mouthfeel/body is light, it’s refreshing and easy to drink. This wouldn’t be an everyday beer for me, but on a hot day I could certainly drink quite a few of these! Certainly worth trying if you’ve never had it before, not a bad choice for summer. $8.99 a 6-pack.

From a can. Pours dark golden with a fluffy white head. Aromas of citrus hops and sweet malt. Upfront hoppiness that gives way to subtle malt, citrus, pepper and hoppy herbal notes. Light and slightly oily palate feel. Very crisp, dry and assertively hoppy. Interesting wheat.

Light Amber pour with medium white head. Mouthfeel is light. Smells yeast. Tastes wheat but is slightly more bitter than regular wheat! An ok wheat beer!

On tap in Cleveland (OH)
The Sunday special at Melt gave me a chance to try this rather uninspiring wheat for $3.00. Fortunately it lacks any major flaws but at the same time has nothing to set it apart from any other session wheat. A typical Four Strings release is competent and nothing more.
Aroma / Appearance - A coppery semitransparent base glows with a ring of white head for company. Lemons, light wheat, and residual gentle hops waft upwards without a care.
Flavor / Palate - A tang of earthy hay brings back memories of early spring fields. Orange marmalade spread over wheat bread warms the throat before a bitter oaky finish. A respectable beer is interchangeable with other 5% ABV wheat ales. Skip unless you are looking for a cheap tick.

Julie say blah. Very Hoppy for a wheat. Saw that it was a wheat and asked if it would help. But she did not think it would. She give a 1

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Matt The Miller’s Tavern in Dublin. Pours a clear yellow-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates quickly to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of fruity wheat, grassy hops and malt. The finish is wheaty with a short mild hops aftertaste. Average overall.

On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from The Union. Mildly hazy golden color. Little white head. Leaves decent bits of lace. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Some biscuity malts, light wheat, citrus and grassy hops. More bitter taste, for a wheat ale. Lighter sweet. Hint of citrus zest. Above-average citrus hops. Odd for the style, but good over all.
