3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly to moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon/orange zest, pepper, light note of sulfur.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Nice aroma, very toasty and yeasty and not much spice presence (perhaps only from the yeast, hard to be sure). Pretty good body and texture for the style as well. My sample was slightly skunked (despite purchasing from the back of the shelf, shame on this brewer for using green bottles!), but thankfully it didn’t hurt the aroma too much. Short of greatness, but solid.

It is actually pretty good, a very smooth wheat ale with a surprising amount o hops and some nice spices.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with a sudsy white head.
Nose is uber-skunky but this quickly fades to reveal hints of lemon and wheat.
Similar lemon flavours, quite acidic and tangy as well. Otherwise just a little bit of wheat and sweet unchallenged malt.
Carbonation is way too high.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12.7 oz. bottle. Pours a large fluffy white head, of good duration, with some lacing, over a hazy, with some yeast clouds, yellow (SRM 4) body....nose is cereal, with light fruits (apple, pear), bit of floral tone, light hop spice....taste is slightly sweet to start, with a bit of pear, apple, and light honey, later dry finishing with mild hop bitterness, and a touch of clove....mouth feel is light, carbonation high. This is an example of this light, but elegant style. BJCP 73/12/4/6

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got 750 ml bottle at Carl’s Meat Market in Kittery, Maine. (Carl is a beer geek and has a nice BUT small beer selection) Pours a soft translucent yellow with a inch of a frothy white head that stayed the way down. Nose is like of a pale lager, soft wheat character, wisps of citrus and grassy hops. Flavor is similar and very simple. Grassy hops, light mouthfeel, lightest hints of citrus peel. Palate is light and crisp. What it lacks in complexity, it makes up in drinkability and it is TRULY a refreshing brew.
