Darkmagus82 (1828) - - OCT 5, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 12-15-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed orange amber color with a huge head of a foamy and thick off white color. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave lots of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is strongest of a wheat and bready smell mixed with a bit of honey sweetness. Along with these aromas are some grainy smells as well as an aroma of hay and some grass. A very light lemon and yeasty smell are there as well, mixing with the rest to produce a somewhat odd and unbalanced aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a smooth bready and somewhat sweeter taste with some flavors of lighter fruits and a bit of honey. The lighter fruits are heaviest of orange, but contain other tastes of pear and apricot as well. As the taste advances, some of the wheaty and grainy flavors begin coming to the tongue along with a little bit of a yeasty taste. As the taste advances even further toward the end, some of the grass, hay and lemon that were in the nose come to the tongue as well, with the flavors in the end, unlike the nose, leaving a smooth, somewhat sweet, wheaty and fruity flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is a bit on the lower side. The body of the beer and lower carbonation are fantastic for the mix of wheat and fruit and make for a wonderfully drinkable and smooth beer. Overall – Other than a somewhat odd and unbalanced nose, this was one fantastic and easy drinking brew. Very tasty.

GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Pours amber with a huge, foamy, white head. Nose is tart and citrusy. Taste is somewhat sweet with a slight bitter note in the back and sides of the tongue. Medium body, soft carbonation. Decent brew.

AAEA (151) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2014
750ML ($5.99) This is a seasonal and is pretty good stuff, would like to see this become a regular offering. Really drinkable and a tasty beer. Its obvious why they sell it in such a big bottle :) and the ceramic topper is a nice affect.

Thisis12ptfont (866) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Aroma of banana, biscuit, lemon, orange and yeast funk. Appears an orange with a three finger foam. Taste is yeast, biscuit, bready malts, orange, banana and citrus notes. Finish is sugary with hints of caramel. Overall, pretty interesting brew and for over 7% the alcohol is pretty well hidden. Some yeast funk overtones. B rating.

ineedbeer (892) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Aroma is very malt forward with a lot of bread and dough character. Hints of toasted bread and cracker. Fairly yeasty aroma with some clove phenolics and faint banana and floral esters. Very light noble hop character. Pours a slightly cloudy, golden orange with hints of copper and a very large, pillowy white head that has really good retention. Medium lacing and small legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a strong malt character. Lots of bread, dough and crackers with a slight toasted and graham cracker note. Medium light clove phenolic note with lighter banana and bubblegum. Medium light bitterness and medium light floral, noble hop notes. Light alcohol spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is slightly slick. Overall an alright beer, but definitely not my favorite style. It is fairly clean without too much yeast character though the aroma is somewhat yeasty. As it warms it becomes sweeter and I pick up more fruitiness. One more style I have rated.

Luvystypotables (800) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Aroma of sour dough with a cloudy golden colour and a rich creamy head. An overwhelming sour taste of spoiled fruit and an unpleasant sour palate.

Bottle. Pours a light, hazy orange color with a bubbly white head. Strong, malty presence. Nice, malty flavor with some light citrus zest. Doesn’t feel strong but I know it is. Nice balance. Pretty good brew. Really enjoyed this.

VinegarStroke (280) - Napa, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle 750ml: Hazy golden cloudy. Nice white head with good persistence and gas. Clean malty nose. Very fresh and lightly roasted. Wheat, banana, citrus. Rich palate god length. Medium sweetness. Great refreshing bitterness. Not sour. Long. Clean. Malt with moderate hop lift. Moderate to high carbonation. Great balance, weight and length. Bright flavours and good complexity. One of the best US lager / bock’s I’ve tried.

A great bock. Pours a beautiful bright orange with a white head. Smells like blood orange. Taste is sweet up front, with a lot of citrus coming in at he middle and end. Sort of like lost Coast's Tangerine Wheat. Very tasty. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thick frothy white head. Wheat, banana, yeast and malt aroma. Wheat, grains, malt, yeast, dough and slight grassy hop flavors. Light body and lots of carbonation. Grassy malt finish.
