3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Going to assume most ratebeerians are going to dismiss this (que the "not enough hops" and/or "never had this so I dunno" style comments") but I like what’s happening here. And what’s happening is this: a honey coloured pour with nary a cap in sight; a nose of fresh peeled citrus & champagne; a crisp palate; a cleansing palate; and intriguing flavour. May not have a hipster moustache but I dig it.

A bit thin, but some malt combined with a plum and berry flavor that builds to an earthy, smooth finish which tapers long off. Interesting and different.

(Bottle): Pours a clear golden colour, small white head. Aroma of wheat, berries, peppery hops. Nice light flavour, some pale malts, citrus, wheat, hops and berries. Somewhat like a typical golden ale with a small weissbier-like quality. Quite nice.

More like lager, light, fruity beer. Not impressive, but quite good for summer

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 oz bottle into a tulip.
A: Pours a golden amber color. What head is formed is rather miniscule (much less than a finger high), and what little is there fades quick anyways. Lacing is sparse and thin-looking.
S: Rather wheaty and crisp. There is a touch of fruit, but one has to really bury their nose in the glass to find it. On the plus side, at least it doesn’t seem like it will cloy...right?
T: There’s a decent wheat flavor to start. Soon after, a fruity note briefly pops up before getting swallowed by the crisp bite. Maybe there’s a touch of spice on the aftertaste. Crisp? Yes. Easy drinking? Yes. Interesting? Nope.
M: The initial feel is fairly sweet, which is thankfully saved with high carbonation and a crisp bite. Can’t fault it for going down easily. Only thing is that it’s a bit heavy in texture.
O: I don’t get much difference between this and a typical fruity wheat ale, but at least this better than some of the crappier examples of the style. Due to the fact that it’s kind of pricey for what it is, I probably won’t get this again.
