3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle served in a shaker. Hazy golden orange pour with a thin head of lasting off-white foam that produced some good lacing. The aroma of the beer had fresh oranges, grass, high quality wheat, grass, and mild spicy yeast esters. The flavor included wheat, citrus, and a grassy bitterness. A hoppy hefe...I like it. Medium-bodied and creamy. Softly carbonated. Iím glad they didnít use a cleaner American wheat yeast strain. The hefe characteristics really shine through under the hops. Nicely done!

Bottle thanks to Cloin at the Tropical Croydonia tasting. It pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose is soft, juicy, grapefruit, lemon rind, soap, peach, wheaten bread and banana. The taste is crisp, bitter, clean, bready, wheat, banana bread, candy, bubblegum and light alcohol. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Simple, but pretty drinkable stuff.

bottle courtesy of piscator34- clear golden straw, vibrant head and soapy lacing. nose- banana and clove, slight hops. taste- a bit muddled- the hops donít really shine through and neither does the hefe aspect. Carbonation lively and quaffable enough. Mineral dryness on finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale amber pour with a monstrous, pillowy, white head. Nose is lightly yeasty and sweet like a Belgian. Taste is much the same, but with a nice floral hop edge that's not typical of a wheat beer. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold in colour with a bit of haze and strong carbonation. Aromas are of vanilla, lemon, bubblegum, and a bit of spicy orange. Thick wheaty body with a blend of traditional hefeweiss and some spicy-herbal almost Belgian pale ale flavors. Medium bodied. Tasted good, but didnít really get any of the extra APA hop notes that I was expecting.
