Super cloudy yellow/orange draft pour. Peach and fruity aroma. Smells amazing. Dry and easy drinking. Fruity and a little bitter. Good for a wheat!

Bottle from pawola. Hazy peach color with a small white head. Loads of citrus and wheat in the aroma with some floral notes. Taste is very citrus forward with light peach notes. Good dose of grapefruit up front and in the finish, and a strong wheat character in this brew as well. Pretty damn enjoyable for an American wheat beer, and the aggressive hopping really turns this in to a top notch beer.

22 oz. bottle served in a Firestone Walker tulip.
A: Pours a semi hazy golden color with a thick white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick collar and leaves some spotty lace down the glass.
S: Fruity hops and cracked wheat dominate the nose. Some citrus flesh and berry flavors with a little bit of lemon.
T: Pure dried wheat flavors with a nice fruity body mixing in. Semi bitter hops with some grassy flavors as well. Nicely balanced and easy drinking.
M: Light bodied with a clean finish. Sweet wheat on the finish with nice carbonation.
O: Really impressed with the balance and easy drinking of this beer. I hope this makes more appearances in the HA rotation.

Very murky yellow-orange with scant head. Fantastic nose of cherry, pineapple, other juicy fruits, gumballs, and spruce. Medium-light body with bright carbonation. Lots more gumball, with orange zest, and pineapple. Excellent. Similar to Gumballhead/Lil Sumpin.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Rerate from can: Nice juicy fruit bitterness with just a touch of dank and herbal notes. Husky wheat finish. I like this a bit more than the first time but alas it ain’t no Gumballhead.
Original rating... Bomber bottle and served in my Ayinger small glass: Hazy golden hue with a nice frothy head and streams of lace. The aroma is quite grassy, herbal and dank with grapefruit esters along with pale malt and a bit of wheat husks. The taste is sharp and acidic at first with a grapefruit rind overtone. The malt is simply there as background noise. Yes, husky and rind dominated... not nearly as refreshing as the Boulevard 80-Acre I had before it. While the aforementioned Boulevard exceeded expectations this was a case of simplistic bittering and almost a one note approach. (Yes, too much like my very average home brewed Wheat IPA)

Bomber thanks to Pawola22! Pours a cloudy peach with a medium off-white head. Aroma is extremely fruity, peaches, pineapple, lemon, and grapefruit, with loads of resinous hops and wheat sweetness. Taste of lots of fresh sweet fruits, tropical, citrus. Some wheat and nutty malt with some slightly clean bitter resinous pine hop spice. Clean, crisp and easy drinking. Would be great on a hot summer day. Delicious!!

Bottle from the brewery. Hazy white maramalade color with a thin white head. Some wheat hay and grass light aromas. Tasty light wheat flavors. Lemon and grassy hops. Some reminescence of daisy cutter despite the different hops. A long grassy bitter finish. Fresh tasty and really good. The price point is pretty nice as well.

Thanks to the kind soul who shared this at the Tampa crew tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some light wheat with big lemon, hops, and some fruit. Flavor follows the nose. Light to medium in body, very tasty, and session able as hell.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the CBS annual picnic, and self served to clear plastic with a hazed, orangy gold hue, healthy cream & bubbles head, and lasting cling to the waves & spots of lacing. The nose was expressive, white grapefruit scent and light grain. The flavor offered barely a touch of sweetness, soft wheat, but a light soapiness intruded before being erased by a strong, lingering, dry, but acceptable hop astringency. Some watery texture also bummed the experience a bit.

Thanks for sharing this one! Nose is big hops and a touch of lemony wheat. Tons of grapefruit and citrus rind. Taste is pretty much the same with a nice light feel to it. Very nice for a wheat.
