3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bine and Vine. Pours hazy light golden amber with a slight frothy white head. Aroma is light fruit with a citrus background. Approaching med body. Flavor is wheaty, with some mixed light fruits including citrus. There’s a little spice, and there’s a mild earthiness. Nice, but hard to pin down on style. Seems like there’s too much here to just label it "wheat". For me it finishes a little dusty and dry.

The pour is a cloudy golden orange color with a solid white head. A nice hoppiness to it, highly floral, with a light spiciness. Good wheat and bread notes, fairly crisp on the nose. Just a hint of grass. The flavor has a nice touch of citrus along with the more floral and spicy notes. Sweet bread and wheat flavors and a touch of yeast.

Lively bubbles, finished dry. Nice and easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly cloudy amber coloured body with a copper glow and a very thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of fresh grapefruit and slightly piney hops, some light acidic notes and a touch of malt. Light-bodied; Sharp hop pellet flavour with a kick of citrus and lemons in particular. Aftertaste is pretty mild with a hint of the hops, a decent amount of the citrus and only a smudge of the funky malt flavour. Overall, not such a great beer - a few decent flavours, but nothing complex or inspirational. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Olive Tree Market Place in San Diego, California on 01-May-2012 for US$1.89 sampled at home in Washington on 07-July-2012.

12 ounce thanks to Jose. Not exactly a wheat beer since it tastes like an IPA with big malty and caramel flavors. Dry finish. I don’t know how much the hops used here differ from the Columbus IPA. Feels like a similar beer.

Thanks to elnadeau for sharing this bottle with me.
I guess I’m against the grain on this one. To me, this beer was dry, lemony and it just wasn’t my thing.
