orangesol (987) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Served on-tap at the Lancaster location.

A - Pours hazy golden orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving light streaks of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of lemon zest, lemongrass, spicy yeast, chewy wheat, and grassy hops. A touch of alcohol creeps in toward the end of the glass.

T - Starts off with the chewy wheat quickly giving way to a mix of lemongrass and lemon rind, spicy yeast, and plenty of grassy hops. The booze is light at first becoming stronger as it comes up to room temperature. The finish is a mix of chewiness, spice, and hop bitterness that lingers on the pallet for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Chewy, hoppy, feel with plenty of it lingering through the finish.

O - Pretty good stuff. I like how it had a good amount of spice yet it wasn’t overpowering. It still had plenty of hops to keep me interested for the duration of the glass.

dmac (5635) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Draft at Maple Shade. Poured a hazy light straw body with an average foamy white head. Aroma of grains, light toast, lemons, citrus. Flavor is sweet, juicy fruit, sugar, perfume. Nice palate, smooth creamy body, lingering aftertaste. Flavor definitely picks up where the aroma falls off. Sweeter than I was expecting.
