3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4oz on tap at the Moerlein Lager House. Clear golden, sort of orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving decent but kind of loose lace. Orange rind aroma, mild mustiness, some caramel and bigger breadiness. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Drinks kind of malt forward with mild citrusy and slightly peppery hop. Medium body, lightly slick. Lighter carbonation. A decent wheat ale / pale ale hybrid. A bit too malty and sweet for me though, and the hop character that’s there is a little rindy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at GABP - wheaty with grassy hops. Citrus aftertaste. Tap handle said pale ale and so I expected an APA... Oh well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at JTap’s on Glenway Avenue on August 30, 2014. Dark amber hue, fairly big wheat/fruit nose, moderate tangy bittersweet flavor with some yeasty notes. Nice but something was a little off in the finish. I would try this again at a place that caters to beer fans, not the macro crowd like this place does. Not sure how clean the lines are kept.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Poured an clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate citrus and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Draft at the Lager House. Pours a semi-cloudy gold with a barely off-white head that laces the glass heavily. Aroma of sugary sweet dough, wheat, peach, apricot, and grass. The flavor has the same sweet sugary dough thing going on, along with wheat, tropical fruits, grass, tea, and sweetener. Light-bodied with moderate carbonation. They’ve done better wheats. Re-Rate: Better than I recalled. The 2015 iteration is a big step up. Hops come together better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to pint at Moerlein Lager House. Looks solid; a fairly transparent orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; hoppy and wheaty with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Some fruit from the hops. A good example of the style.
