5.8%ABV. Wheat ale. Tapped out a nice gold. 4ºSRM. Clean and very light wheaty aromas of flour and raw dough. There is some wheaty, malty sweetness in the nose. No funky heaviness. Mouthfeel was sudsy. Good carbonation. Light wheat, pale malt palate with water biscuit, soda cream crackers, flour and dough. A bit of a sour and broad palate. There are some neat nutty flavor notes as well, which is a little unexpected in a wheat beer. Raw peanuts, and some raw butteriness, like in a raw Brazil nut or macadamia. Finish has a lot more hops and is longer than one would expect of a witbier or a weizen. Has more complexity than first meets the eye. Goes on Favorites List!

Mandarin, honey. Quite dry and bready, feels a bit lager’ish, not sweet, dry peppery finish. Quite refreshing but a bit light overall.

tiong (5584) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Draught @ Mike Hess North Park, San Diego, CA

Pours clear golden with a small head. Aroma of orange fruits, lemon and citrus. Taste is smooth, sweetish with some honey, orange peel, citrus and yeast. Finish is sweetish, stuffy and fruity with some orange peel and citrus. Decent, quite easy going.

laiti (7772) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Draught @ the brewpub, San Diego. Aroma has honey, some apricot and mild fruity notes. Flavour has minerals, honey, some odd chlorine vibes and cereal. Finishes with some lingering hoppiness with minerals. These honey beers are still not my thing. This is not oversweet but stickiness eats the drinkability.

Kroney (252) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Can into pint glass. Appearance: hazy pale yellowish gold. Minimal head. Aroma: soda cracker biscuit malt, yeast, hints of orange peel and honey. Taste: lots of honey sweetness almost overwhelming, little bit of Belgian yeast. Palate: sticky, wants to be refreshing, but the honey sweetness just overpowers. Good beer, not great.

willisread (1550) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2015
Can from Tanakaya. Drank straight from the can. Light wheat aroma with a strong orange blossom honey nose. Taste is more of the same almost with an orange ceylon tea character with the spice and orange peel. Finish is has some coriander and light cardamom. Not a fan.
