Our “stinger” is one of our summer offerings. It has honey malt, pure honey from a local apiary, organic lemon peel, and paradise seeds. The three noble hop additions meld perfectly with the citrus/spice character.

Dogbrick (9998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Sample at the Grandview Summer Session on 08/22/2015. The beer is a clear golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Short strings of lace. Aroma of fruit, wheat and spices. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal wheat, citrus and spice. The finish is wheaty with a mild fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

Shot (309) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with clumps of yeast floating in it. Thin white head. Aromas of floral hops and citrus. Flavors of citrus, cut grass, and biscuit. Citrusy, hoppy finish. Peppery, clean mouthfeel. Not bad.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Root Cellar. Pours a clear gold initially but I poured the whole thing in and loaded the glass with yeast floaters. Small off-white head with a ring and spotty film along with a few ropes of lace. Notes of wheat, minerals, husky grains, grass, some fruity esters, honey, and very, very light spice. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Not spicy enough to merit the S/H/V style designation. Just a straightforward wheat ale with a more interesting description than it warrants.

mambossa (172) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Pour from bottle. Gold pour, modest head, sediment. Prickly juice nose, biscuity and a bit musty, rindy. Flavor is unique, coriander, lemon and orange peel, lightly hopped, less bready than traditional wheats. Not what I expected in a mildly pleasant way.

cheap (4749) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2015
$2 vintage. From a bottle this stuff looks almost alive in the glass, things going up, things falling down; lots of precipitant. Ever so slight ipa aroma. First taste is grapefruit mild bitter rinds pleasant. Yes, some astringent hop bitterness in there but its almost like ipa acceptable. Certainly is refreshing. Better than expected considering its full of spice. Yes, more like a hopped up unsweetened fresh squeezed grapefruit brew, but not quite as green nor oily. So, on the big swig its quite refreshing then as it finishes, that medium mild hop thang kicks in. Yes, better than expected.

JaBier (5877) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Pint at Maumee Bay on 9/7/13. Clear gold to orange appearance with a medium white head. Malty nose with notes of honey, lemon and subtle grassy hops. Malty flavor with honey sweetness and light citrus before a sweet finish.

umich03jm (2991) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Draft at the pub. Pours a cloudy orange color with very little head. Pleasant aroma of wheat, lemons, and some spice. Big lemon taste with minor wheat notes. Spicy dry finish. Not a bad summer beer.

Tmoney99 (12404) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Draft sample. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate honey, citrus and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

JStax (4103) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Poured on draft. Aroma is bready and wheaty with some off honey character and lemon. The lemon is a bit off-putting in this beer. Taste is sweet and zingy. Not for me.

weihenweizen (2474) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Pours hazy golden with small white head. Little lacing, medium/heavy body, and sticky texture. Taste is malty grain and a hint of honey. Not interested in having this again.
