3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at Half Acre. Hazy yellow in its tiny glass, with a thin ring of foam. Mellow smell of orange blossoms. More bitter in the mouth, thanks to the sharpness of those whippersnapper southern hemisphere hops. Finishes with growing sensation of pineapple and orange.

Pours hazy white lemony unclear with a white head. Aroma is a bit too subtle, notes of juicy tropical and citrus fruit. Flavor brings delicious fruity citrus Motueka hops that dominate that palate so nicely and bring a juicy body. The flavor of the wheat comes on the backend.

Can: Pour is cloudy lemon gold with a frothy, fine bubbled two finger white head into this glass. It retains on the average side, with some cob web presence. Thereís certainly a deficiency in the style out there ; therefore, itís a welcome addition to anyoneís local repertoire, I believe. I canít speak directly for Motueka hops, lacking the brewing experience in it but the distinction is fairly immediate here. Thereís a floral note but itís earthen, with light tangerine presence and a hint of spice. The flavor profile is more bittering hops than I suppose I expected, and thatís ok. It moves to peach, citrus rind, with a mild mannered balancing act from the malt bill. The wheat is feint initially, and that is also ok : their goal was to highlight the hops, and frankly the mouthfeel and bitterness level reminds of Daisy Cutter, which is not a surprise.

On tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - this reminded me of an IPA - just not super hoppy. Pretty good stuff.

Tall can thanks to Frank. Obviously drank from the can. Artwork is cool but lacks any eagles or 80s sports cars, but does have an imaginary animal thing. 4/5 on appearance. Nose is tropical and fruit, like fruity pebbles. Taste is initially grainy with a slight sweetness, then a fruity hop flavor kicks in. Finishes dry with a hop touch. Slightly metallic taste, that could either be the can, or the can messing with my head. Pretty tasty. Would crush a lot on the beach.

Aroma comes across as a DIPA, but the taste doesnít match and reminds me that this is a wheat ale instead. First brew from this brewery and has me looking forward to getting more!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Three Aces, 6/9/14
Aroma: The aroma is fruit and wheat, with peach, apricot, tropical fruit, and some lemon
Appearance: It pours a couldy yellow-orange color with a white head and some decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, wheaty and fruity, with a nice bitterness to it
Palate: The body is medium, it has an average carbonation, and a clean, dry finish
I quite enjoyed this one. Itís a very nice example of the hoppy wheat beer style. If you like wheat beers, you like hops, and you like well crafted beers, you really cannot go wrong here.
