3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from a Wild Plum shop in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Pours an unclear pale yellow with a small white head that leaves a medium lacing. The taste is an interesting mixture of the wheat, lemon and coriander of a white beer, and the fruity citrus hops of an IPA. The taste is on the sweet end without compromising the bitterness of an IPA nor the slight acidity of a white. The palate is medium with a rather dry finish. Very interesting, I never had anything like this before.

Pours very light yellow with thin white head (almost like a fizzy lager). Aroma is sweet fragrant fruit or spice, very nice. Taste is sweet malt, low on bitterness. Love this seasonal!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ABC. Pours a shimmering gold with a frothy, bright white head; very full and lasts throughout. Lacing is excellent. Love the small visible particles, too. Aromas are overwhelmingly citrus, pine, floral. Almost a lemon taste; not very bitter at all, and smooth all the way down. Pretty thin and dry on the finish, but really enjoyable overall. Acquire.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unfiltered wheat beer appearance with suspended particles. The bitterness is slightly harsh & similar to their "Ranger" IPA. Grapefruit forward with some other citrus flavors & a dominating bitterness sums this up.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
03.15.15 best by.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 11.19.14.
A: Candied fruit. Maybe itís candied pineapple and lemon. Itís too subtle to flesh out.
A: Crystal clear lemon yellow body. 1/2 finger head that recedes fairly quickly.
T: Candied lemon and ammonia dominate. A bitter sting that isnít quite pine and a spiciness are subtle.
P: Watery. Bubbly on the back end.
O: This should have been much better since it had Mosaic and Amarillo hops. It had an almost macro lager-like quality. Maybe itís a mass-produced quality. It was watery and without much flavor. Tl;dr: boring.

This thing pours golden with a white haze, topped with a solid white head that leaves gorgeous lacing. A good combination of tropical fruity hops and resin, with moderately heavy bitterness. I donít really taste any spices, if there are any there in the first place, which is a very good thing for me. One of the few beers I buy a 12-pack of when I have the opportunity.
