3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden color out of the bottle with a short lived white head. Dusty grain nose with some citrus notes. Strong bready malt backbone, orange zest hops, some grain astringency, and a long citrus hop finish. Not bad for a summer seasonal.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of orange, lemon zest, pepper, pine, wheat, floral, herbal, and light yeast spices. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and decent strength. Taste of orange zest, lemon, pine, wheat, pepper, bread, herbal, floral, and light yeast spices. Lingering notes of citrus, pine, wheat, herbal, and floral on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of flavors with good hop complexity. No cloying flavors at all; fairly clean on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Hardly any alcohol noticed after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very nice hoppy wheat ale. Nice balance of flavors with good hop presence; extremely smooth and easy to drink. Very enjoyable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear dirty gold with a big white head and strips of lace. The taste is unusual - begins with bitter wheat and moves through light lemon to a sour, tart finish. It is different, but not enjoyable, not as solid as other Mt. Carmel offerings. Not recommended.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
from a bottle, cant see it, social surroundings prevent a glass.. smell is a little strong and volatile tho its rated at less than 5%. first taste is rather strong but does not go over the top. yes, wheat ale it is because it has very few if any hef attributes, fer sure. second taste reveals some ale attributes but i think i’m getting used to it now as i appraoch half bottle. can’t see much but what i do see thru the bottle is no sediment and it appears quite clear. sometimes i think i feel a tart thing hidden in there but it fades every time i look fer it. finish is a tad medicinal for a wheat, this definatly makes it an ale, slightly rude attributes and all. som e metal in theh end.

well done wheat offering. It’s bright, citrusy, but with some other flavors there too. maybe even some roasty toffee flavors. nice and cold, it’s refreshing and addicting, I can’t stop at one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow with a one finger white head. Just ok head retention and no lacing.
Lemon is quite prominent on the nose along with some caramel and a little bit of citrus hoppiness.
Some light lemon is up front on the taste with a little bit of bubblegum and clove and the slightest hint of caramel. Once again some citrus hop flavor is present all leading to a moderate drying bitterness. Mouthfeel has that soft feeling associated with wheat beers.
Overall, a pretty good summer thirst quencher and one I am glad I picked up.

Draft to pilsner. Looks decent; translucent like a lager though. Smells and tastes pretty good. Cascade? Good mouthfeel. A really good summer ale!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes. First reviewed 12/25/2010. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
This pours a slightly hazy golden color with a 2 cm bubbly white head. The head fades to an archipelago on the top of the beer.
From the smell it seems to have been hopped pretty nicely, citrus and a lightly herbal aroma. There is a light medicinal note in addition to the wheat as well.
The flavor starts out lightly sweet, with the wheat coming through nicely. Smooth citrus really dominate, and the finish cleans up nicely.
Bubbly carbonation pops off the tongue. Light body, clean and crisp, heavy carbonation. There is a light puckering sensation from the bitterness.
I thought this was pleasant and drinkable. Being local to Ohio, I most likely will not get a chance to drink it often, but I would be happy to see it show up at a BBQ.
