Bottle 65 cl. Pours a clear golden with an off-white head. Citrusy, gingery nose. Medium body, dry maltiness again with a little citrus and some ginger. Dry finish with a discreet hop bite. Would be a quenching summer drink. 100110

Pours crystal clear with a thin white head. I won’t sugarcoat it. It looks like piss. I’m not sure what it smells like. There was a bit of bottle stink, which is understandable because it had to travel all the way from Napa to San Francisco. I’m almost afraid to take a drink, but here goes... Wow. That tastes like nothing. I seem to have gotten a bottle of stinky yellow seltzer water. I guess it could be worse.

Wow, what a lot of butter in this aroma. The flavor has some butter as well with a hint of wheat and a very buttery finish. I’m hoping that my bottle was tainted since I found this highly undrinkable.

From a 22 oz bottle this poured a hazy yellow with a nice fat white head and good lacing. Nose is citrus, banana, and a hint of clove. Mouthfeel is smooth and refreshing. Flavor is malty, with citrus and light ripe finish is dry and floral. Very easy to drink beer and quite refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bomber, no date from Bottle Barn. Clear gold with a one and a half finger white head, good retention. Aroma of lemon, light banana, and light white pepper. Flavor is kinda lemony with a little bit of pepper. The finish is semi-dry, bitterness about a 2. Low carbonation with a light body. Doesn’t seem much like an American wheat beer to me, but still isn’t too bad. Kinda saison-ish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 3/30/2009. This wheat ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and good lacing. The aroma is cereal and grainy with a touch of sweet esters. A medium bodied wheat ale. The malts are cereal and grainy, some bubble gum and only a touch of banana and clove ester so it’s more of a wheat ale than a Hefe. The hops are floral and spicy. Good carbonation. Nice balance. I am not one for wheat ales, but this one is very nice. A very clean and smooth tasting beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this at Taylors at the Ferry Building. Really nice, an american wheat beer with some phenolic and spicy complexity. Full bodied, notes of wheat, toast, pepper, citrus. There is a slight sweetness to this that I’m not sure if it is distracting or makes it so enjoyable. Another sample is in order.
