3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home with my dad. Pour is golden lemon in appearance with a big white head and great lacing. Floral, citrus, lemon, wheat, biscuit, and straw in the aroma. Taste is straw, biscuit, grass, flowers, light honey, pine, and lemon zest, with a light bitter finish. Light body with lively carbonation. Crisp, light and refreshing, with a really great hop presence. One of the best wheat ales I have ever had.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got this bad boy in a trade, thanks cfh64! Poured from a 750ml bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a semi-hazy light orange with with yellow hues intertwined around the edges. Two finger white head forms on the pour that is very bubbly and has some great retention. Nice spider web lace follows down the glass.
S: Nice citrus hops with some grassy notes as well. Slight wheat peaks in on top of that.
T: The taste was a little different from the nose. Grassy with a slight woody note. Mild citrus. Very different.
M: Crisp and light with nice carbonation. Had a very airy mouthfeel and drank just like water.
O: This is the best sessionable beer that I’ve ever had. This bad boy drank just like water. I could drink this all day. Great taste and drinkability.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Notes from 10/7/11:
Poured 750ml bottle into pilsner glass.
A: Golden-honey colored with large fluffy white head that settles into a nice rim that sporadically laces down the glass. Bit hazy from the yeast.
S: Clean, fresh. Lemon hops, wheat, and a faint sweetness hit the nose.
T: Taste follows the nose. Bready malts with the wheat. Lemon/citrus hops are great.
M: Light, but not thin. Very drinkable and refreshing. I wasn’t careful enough toward the end of the bottle to avoid the yeast sediment.
O: Another winner from Jester King. I found this to be a great summer brew alternative to a Hefe. This hop-forward wheat beer is something different in a very good way.

75cl Bottle @ RBBSG, Courtesy of 77ships. Hazy yellow coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small white head. Yeasty light fruity complex aroma. FUll palate. FInish is again some yeasty wheaty fruity touches (almost like hint of blackbarries). Not bad.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml. sampled @ RBBSG 2012. At first feared that this might be a tad of, perhaps too old for such a light beer and there are evidently no dates on the American stuff but this was still mighty fine. Hazy orange with a huge white head. Lots of hops in the nose, very fruity, exotic fruits, pine apples, mango, cloud berries,... taste is white bread, lovely exotic hops, quite fruity, mango, pineapple, very fruity yeast, touch cloud berries, light bitter, touch floral in the back, quite zesty as well. Very easy to drink, mighty fine stuff.

And another fantastic brew from Jester King, this one with help from Mikkeller. Cloudy yellow, big white head. Smells nice - lightly floral, with some rose and lavender. Taste is mildly sweet with some notes of pepper and dry, woody hops. Thanks to rougeau13 for the trade!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange body with a huge foamy white head. Lovely. Aroma is floral grassy soapy hops, light malty tones and hints of citric peel. Taste is sharp, dry and bitter citrus tones, mainly grapefruit-like but also a bit orange-ish. Hints of wet leaves and herbs in the back. Dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Nice an fresh beer for sure, which definitely gets up the "one more"-finger in the bar if I’m there. :-)
