Eh. Just a plain old average wheat beer with too much hop flavor. Too bitter for my liking in a wheat beer. Pale yellow color, not much of a head. It was an okay drink for a thirsty spell, but wouldn’t drink otherwise if I had a choice. Go with Ad Astra Ale or even a Copperhead Ale if you want something nice from Free State.

12 oz pour from bottle from fridge into mug. Little head. Straw color. Clear. Nice carbonation. Smells a little yeasty, but mostly clean. Tastes crisp, unassuming. A little bitterness. Not too bad, but not much going on.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewery (Lawrence, KS). Pours a glowing rich orange amber hue, transparent hue is fiery sun and amber sap glow. Frothy whitish head atop stays as a decent layer, mellow lacing from the ringer atop. Aromas are a bit of flaked wheat, some dust and dry straw meeting a mellow earthy hop. A faint underlying fruitiness hits the nose. Touches of earth,,dryness and spice, grainy flaked wheat and cereal elements. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body but not without some substance to it. Gentle bready malts, a flinty kick of estery fruit shows some life with some decent hop bitterness, grainy malts, earthy hops and gentle straw. Backend is a touch fruity, gentle flashes of lemon with some earthiness, florals and a bit of spice. Smoothed out backend with a touch of dryness, earth, lingering bread and that subtle kick of lemon juice making it a bit refreshing. Lighter, pretty crushable with a coolness to it on the palate. Nice.

12oz bottle, purchased from Lukas Liquor in Missouri during my RBSG stay. Notches on the label indicate that this is best by the fifth week of August. Mostly clear golden color, with a slight orange hue. Thin off-white head. Decent loose bits of lace. Fades to minimal eventually. Medium body. Kind of crisp, light soft, lightly abrupt lighter carbonation. Kind of slick finish. Some orange citrus lightly spicy flavors, wheaty bready malt. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Kind of a light funky cheapish lagery taste. OK kolsch.
