This beer was a very pleasant surprise. Hoppy but not bitter. Smooth taste that pleases the palate. Pleasant aftertaste that leaves you ready for more. Very nice appearance. Shared with friends and was rated highly. Definite recommendation for the summer months.

On tap at First Draft. Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is pine, orange, and grapefruit. Taste is bitter, just a little alcohol, caramel breadiness, and a little fruit finish.

Det stora återspeglas i det lilla, mönster upprepas i det oändliga, från mikro till makro. Därför kan man studera mänskligheten - och de existentiella villkoren - bara genom att nysta i det beteendemönster som får specimen av homo sapiens att välja Sofiero framför valfri produkt av Lagunitas. Att närgranska detta sakförhållande är att stirra den mänskliga naturen i vitögat, att ta ett ekg på mörkrets hjärta. Detta, och mycket mera, kan man ådagalägga till fromma för vetenskapen, om man inte är upptagen med studiet av alkoholens inverkan på hjärnan, som jag råkar vara. Ibland måste man prioritera.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is crystal malts, citrus, lemon grass, passionfruit, pinecone and clove. Taste is light sweet malts with a mostly deep hop profile . An Aroma akin to the aroma with a subtle earthiness and tanin profile is that is balanced very well and tastes excellent with a subtle taste considering the abv . Appearance is a clear gold with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

355ml bottle (?, Helsinki) (6+:3:6+:3:12+=3.0+++)
Paleish orange. Sweet maltiness and pleasant hoppy aroma. A nice bitter body too. Kinda watery. Covers the alcohol well. A fairly pleasant simple pale ale. Some stucky hops in the finish. Competent, but very boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle (from notes). Done as a semi-blind tasting, so I didn’t know the beer style (and would have guessed APA) until entering this review.
Pours a clear golden-amber with a large near-white head. Exceptional lacing is left on the glass.
With no examination of the bottle other than a glimpse at the front label, I thought this was an APA or IPA. A bit unusual in color and aroma, but otherwise, I think this is a decent description of the sensory properties.
The aroma is dominated by piney hops, with a hint of toasted grain and a slight skunkiness (from the wheat?). The mouthfeel is slightly harsh; in retrospect, I guess this is due in part to the higher ABV. It has a medium-light body.
Taste is the strong point. The flavor is plentiful, albeit mostly from hops and without being particularly complex. Hop character is largely of the pine/resin variety but with a bit of faint citrus. Moderately strong bitterness.
O: A clean, very hoppy wheat ale suitable for hop heads. I didn’t think this was a great APA or IPA -- not up with better Lagunitas offerings for one thing -- but as an Amer. Pale Wheat, it is exceptional.
