3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rcvd in trade.
The appearance was a super hazy orange close to amber colored body with a one finger and a half worth’s white foamy head that once it dies after a good minute there’s a lot of thick clingy lacing.
The smell has a big wheat aroma covering over some pale malts and slightly fruity.
The taste is super wheaty with some slight sweet orange. There is some lighter wheat and somewhat citrus fruity aftertaste along with a quick dry finish.
The palate sits about a medium on the body. Carbonation feels kinda heavy, I’m really not feeling the love of any sort of sessionability with this one.
Overall, this is an American Pale Wheat ale and in my opinion has just a bit too much wheat that becomes too filling. I might not be an expert, but think Candia Road might want to tone down that wheat for a more balanced approach to the style. However, I’m glad to have tried a new company.

Pours a bright gold with no head. Aroma of wheat, spices, and sweetness. Taste is sweet, wheat, spices. Kinda one dimensional. Not bad, just not exciting.

Thanks to Beerandblues2. Poured with a foamy white head with a slightly hazy yellow color. Aroma had light grain. Notes. A little spice and rough grains to this one. Okay, but not as refreshing as I had hoped or wished.

650mL bottle picked up from town earlier today. Paid exactly $6.99. To pint, pours a dark orange with a trim whitish, frothy head 1˝. fingers in length. Aromas of salted butter, wheat grain, and lemongrass. Not much going on. Tastes of everything described above with addition of Meyers lemons, Hefeweizen yeast, and pear skins at swallow. Decent stuff.
