COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A double wheat ale. Don’t let this one cloud your thoughts. It may be hard to see through, but the taste is complex, fruity and hoppy. You will be hoppy too after a sip of this 8% ABV ale.

"Hmmm... Intersting sweetness and a good sturdy body. Too much cereal, but also a nice fruitiness. The good and bad kinda cancel each other out, making beer that ends up average at best. "

22oz bomber pours opaque copper to brown grapefruit juice with off white head. The modest aroma offers up citrus cotton candy and some rauch like maltiness. The taste is pretty smooth and not overly sweet per the double wheat typical flavor profile. I get some slightly tart, slightly sour citrus followed by sugary citrus cotton candy and some rauch malts. This is an interesting experience as these seemingly at odd notes come together with pleasing harmony.

bottle from bevmo 1/25/11. hazy pale iced tea color with a white head which lasts as a ring. the nose is a touch smoky... added notes of cooked orange juice, dust and nickels. unpleasant rubber and smoky flavors persist.... also, wheat and orange with an oddly bittered finish. medium bodied with a slight spicy balance. not good. 4/3/4/3/8/

Probably my favorite from these guys. This brew is very malty and cloudy, which is how i like it. The wheat isnt too overpowering.

22 oz. bottle from BevMo - Pours a clear golden color with a medium size off white head. Light lacing. Notes of toasted grain, floral and herbal hops, spice, and light yeast. Light to medium body. I kinda liked it.

I shared this one with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This beer poured a golden color with some ruby highlights and a big creamy gold head. The nose was a sour smell that reminded me of rotting fruit. The body was light to medium and the mouthfeel a bit acrid The flavor showed some malts and some fruit, but the sourness dominated. Not a nice sourness unfortunately. i approach every new beer with high hopes, but was disappointed in this one. The last of the glass went down the drain.

Strykzone (5009) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Sent in a trade from Hayduke with whom it was shared via Facebook chat. The first pour was very clear copper golden but the following was quite cloudy. Fortunately i was able to mix them. A nice thick light golden head that never left and had light lacing. A wheat ale is almost always too sour for me and this was no exception. There was complex citrus and even some passion fruit along with some caramel and a bit of bread. The sourness overwhelmed subtleties.

Sampled on 6/2/2011. This wheat ale pours a very slightly hazy yellow orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention. The aroma is cereal and grainy, floral and sweet. A medium bodied wheat ale. The malts are cereal and grainy, fruity and sweet. The hops are spicy and floral. A touch of tartness is in here as well. Decent carbonation. A fairly thick mouthfeel for a wheat ale. There is some tartness going on here, that I am not sure it supposed to be here, but sure makes for an interesting wheat ale. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart and slightly bitter.

Bomber from BevMo Sunnyvale. Now this is a lesser seen style here. Hazy golden-yellow in color with a one-finger white head that fades to a thin film on the beer. The aroma is grainy, wheaty, floral, and lightly fruity. Some sweetness evident. The flavor is a little weird, grainy and with some grassy hops, orange peel, wheat, and pale grainy malt. Medium-plus body with average carbonation. Not sure where they were going with this one, but I have to say it missed the mark in my opinion. Amping up styles doesn’t always work I guess.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Wheat and light toasty aroma with yeast. Wheat and malt flavor with light spice and light lemon. Medium bodied. Wheat and malt lingers with light spice and light toast.
