Bottle courtesy of a recent Tampa Tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some light wheat, some bread, citrus, and spice. Flavor is similar- light bread, citrus, and spice. Light to medium in body and a nice wheat overall.

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.

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.

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.

That wheat beer is almost perfect... A good nose and a good fruity taste. No problems in this beer at all. by reading others reviews I think the guy might have tuned up his recipe...

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.

Bottle courtesy of BeerandBlues2, thank you sir! Almost a gusher, but not quite. Cloudy golden color, massive off white head. Aroma of dust covered citrus bubblegum left in attics. Taste is light citrus, white pepper, hay. Hi carbonation. OK.

Bottle. Light orange and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy light amber with giant head. Sweet orange/peach malt flavor. Strong alcohol finish. Okay but a bit boozy.
