3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of jzzbassman. Thanks. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head that has fair retention. The nose is fairly light with hops, spicy herbs and dust. The flavor is a hoppy take on wheat with dust, grains, and a bit of biscuit set in a somewhat biter backdrop. The mouthfeel is smooth and crisp. The finish is short and dry with a lingering vegetable note, and the carbonation is prickly. This is really more of a pale ale than a wheat, very good, very sessionable.

Tap at Mellow Mushroom Jackson MS. Served very cold-bright gold and filtered. Small head. Nose is slightly hoppy but tough to get a nose with this cold beer. Slightly hoppy, grainy, bitter, and a light body. Not memorable and a bit strange but drinkable and not offensive.

355 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden cooper with an adequate white head. Nice piney hop nose. Light body - a bit thinner than I would like. Balance leans a bit to the hop side. Finish is generally clean, slightly dry. Interesting take on a wheat beer and overall very drinkable.
