4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at the Harmon Brewery. This one was a hazy light orange color like the Pinnacle Peak Pale. It has loads of orange aroma, a clean body, and a delicious, sweet finish. Very drinkable, especially on warmer days. Overall it is a very tasty beer and my second-favorite (to the IPA) of the six I sampled there.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Draft: Harmon Brewery & Restaurant in Tacoma, WA) Smells quite malty and pleasantly grainy for a wheat beer, more like a golden ale than a wheat. Again, in the flavor, there’s not a whole lot of wheat flavor, it’s more of a grainy maltiness, lightly sweet, gently bitter. No sign of the sweet orange peel "hopping" the brewery touts in their write-up for this beer. Though still fairly light in body, it is certainly heavier than a wheat beer, and the palate is less clean. Cloudy, straw colored body. Whitish head is fairly small when poured, and fades fast, and any attempt to revive the head has little success in generating more than a wisp. It isn’t what I was expecting, but I found this beer to be pretty enjoyable.

I’m sorry but this was not a good wheat beer. Hazy yellow with the typical lemon up there. I guess the locals refer to this as the "Bong Water Wheat." Bitter wheat flavor without any noticeable body. I guess this was a bit refreshing and not totally void of flavor, but something I could have done without.

Lemony color and taste. I am not certain if this is due to the addition of a lemon by the bartender, which I immediately extracted. Lightly wheat, but dominated by lemon--similar in this regard to saxer lemon lager.
