3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear gold with lots of bubbles. Tremendous foamy head that settles eventually leaving sporadic sticky lacing.
Smell is great. A nice wheat base with some crisp clean citrus aroma.
Taste is a bit of a let down after the appearance and smell. Very little of the wonderful citrus from the nose makes an appearance in the taste. Really just a bit of wheat, finishing with a sharp spicy bitterness.
Fairly light and medium-high carbonation levels.
Just ok. If more of the citrus made a flavor appearance this could be a very good beer. As is it’s good for a lighter ABV beer, but not much more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from a Spec’s, 9/24/13
Aroma: The aroma has some hop notes, some bready malts, citrus, and a little pine
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color with a small, fizzy white head, and spots of lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, it is mild sweet, with some decent spice, and a mid bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it isn’t too watery, had a softish carbonation, and a dryish finish
I thought this one was decent, but I didn’t think it was great. As an overall beer, especially one this low in alcohol, this one has an impressive amount of flavor and character. Jester King tends to nail stuff regularly, and, here, they do it again.

750ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, light copper color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity, piney and floral hops. The hops dominate the flavor, but in a pleasant subtle way. Slight grapefruit and apricot notes. The wheat and malts compliment very well with a nice biscuity backbone.
Crisp and light with moderate carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 This is the finest hoppy wheat ale I?ve had. It is so clean and bright. Wonderful session ale. You do not sip this beer. You take big manly gulps and sniff back a few tears when the bottle empties.

Bottle from a trade with Errl. Thanks, Chris! This one’s a bit long in the tooth. Slightly Amber light brown. Wheat and some lemon.Taste follows with bit of citrus zip on the end. Malty but wheat prominent. Nice complex for a 4%er. Wish I’d tried it fresher but couldn’t bring myself to drink this in the winter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 Since now didn’t knew style - wow. It is overall more IPA flavored - hops oriented, pours hazy pale yellow with good white cap. Very intense noble American hops, a bit flowery, taste was semisweet with good bitter, long dry finish also bitter. Seems medium body, watery texture. Light sour flavor notes also. Very nice, refreshing one.
update: loads of grapefruity-juicy, spruce-perfume hops in aroma; reminds me of German weizen with loads of hops. White, thick, rich lasing.

Now this is the type of beer you can drink on a sweltering Texas day right after mowing your acreage and feeling like you deserve a light airy reward. Floral aroma with hints of raspberry. Unfiltered wheat with a delightfully refreshing citrus, mildly yeasty taste. A "close your eyes and smile" sort of beer! Thank you again, jester king!
