2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
355ml bottle. Seems like a good idea. Bottle a bit old though this particular beer is new to the market. Hazed gold pour, foamy white head. The aroma is grapefruit and wheaty earth. Flavor is leafy greens, grapefruit, lemon. It is light and refreshing but not really well made.

Draft to taster at Odd Side. Looks solid; a slightly hazy pineapple with white head. Smells of mild grapefruit and wheat. Tastes Ike it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A sessionable wheat ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, from the Woodstock Wine & Cheese. Enjoyed from a plastic cup. Good creamy light khaki head. Nice lace. Great authentic mild peppery grapefruit flavor, without being anywhere near too tart. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Mild slick, light dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Decent dryness. Solid grapefruit wheat. I’m impressed and satisfied.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of grapefruit, pale malt, and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of citrus peel bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of grapefruit, pale malt, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a good malt/yeast/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very nice fruited pale wheat ale style. All around good robustness and balance of grapefruit, pale malt, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
