4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: August 31, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Schneider Edel-Weisse pokal... OCCASION: celebrating Penn State’s first win of 2013...APPEARANCE: hazy, almost dirty sediment-laden pale straw yellow body; head is glacially stacked; its lacing is like well-patterned sea foam--a beguiling start... AROMA: banana, pepper, and clove--the holy trinity of wheat beer scents--is present and strong; honey is bottle-boasted but not as apparent...PALATE: medium-bodied, active on and under the tongue; spritzy, as a seltzer or a soda; refreshing...TASTE: lemony zest is first to stake its claim; pepper is also prominent sipping through its head adds to the experience... OVERALL: mellow and refreshing; little complexity, and little complaint there; the bottle is mid-ranged in price, and in a six-pack would be more than enjoyable....

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle bought somewhere I can’t remember. Pours hazy pale golden with a frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly sweet, slightly fruity, slightly spicy and slightly phenolic with wheat crackers, coriander, lemon zest, hay, honey, white pepper corns, dry soil, dry wood and hints of white grapes. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter, tiny fruity and slightly spicy with wheat crackers, honey, coriander, cloves, white pepper corns, dry soil, hay, lemon zest and hints of grapefruit rinds, honeydew melon and white grapes. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly round, tiny watery and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, slightly bitter and spicy with wheat crackers, honey, grapefruit rinds, hay, lemon zest, white pepper corns, coriander, cloves and dry soil. I quite liked the honey influence in this one. It supported the salty crayfish we had for dinner very well.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. It’s a lightly hazy pale golden beer, topped by a white head. Lots of spent pale malts in the aroma, with fruity notes. Yellow apples and some pears. Medium body, dry, with an appropriate carbonation level. Fruity flavor with a touch of pale malts. Not much spiciness going on. Long grainy and fruity finish. Nice, but far from the best wit I’ve had. 130815

On tap at Capitol Beer and Taproom, reads as an elevated typical wheat beer. Banana and coriander dominate. More grapefruit would be appreciated. Not my style.
