3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, best enjoyed before November 2014, poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear pale yellow with small/medium white head. Aroma is stronger floral hops, medium/light body, medium/light carbonation, and big bubble lacing. Taste is floral (reminds me of dandelion) crisp hops with bitter finish. American wheat beer with pilsner characteristics with quite a bit of flavor, but not my thing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent clear yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly died and left some light lacing sliding down the glass.
The smell was citrusy and piney bitterness. Some light wheaty-ness did come in as it warmed.
The taste was packed with long lasting piney/citrus flavoring. The aftertaste took that and brought out a lot of lemon in that lead to a dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium and had a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat harsh but not overbearing for the style.
Overall, not a bad American Pale Wheat Ale, but not exactly one Iíd really want again either.

Straw colored ale with clear appearance and a good one finger white head. Floral and slightly citrus nose. Grain profile is slight obscured by appropriate measure of Amarillo hops. Wheat profile comes out the aftertaste. Overall, a great taste and drinkable beer... but higher ABV than a true session.

Draft one week ago at Sweetlife concert. Served in a plastic cup, pale yellow color with white head. Aroma of wheat male and citrusy hops. Taste adds notes of lemon/grapefuity hop bitterness, grainy and yeasty. Light body, moderate carbonation, light with clean finish. Tasty easy drinking wheat ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Above average American wheat ale. Slightly hazy bright orange pour with a two finger head that fades quickly to a ring. Pleasant aroma dominated by amarillo tangerine and orange zest, as well as mango and a bready wheat backbone that struggles to surface. Up front, the flavour mostly suggests hop flavour, but not much bitterness. Low astringency in this hoppy brew. Creamy, tropical-fruity mid-palate taste with a short-lived finish of lemony and orange citrus and fresh baked bread. The short palate duration makes this one good beer; not a great beer. While I may not feel the need to purchase this again, as there are just so many examples of such hoppy session ales, I canít imagine ever turning one down. The bitterness is low enough to play well with food, which is nice. I will be pairing this with tofu tempura in a mango-yellow curry sauce.

Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club, tasted on June 30, 2013. Cloudy light gold/amber hue, firm citrus aroma, small white head, light body, initial watery mouthfeel followed by quite tart citrus flavor. Not bad.

Pours a tawny yellow with minimal head. Aroma is of hops, lemon, and pine. Taste is simple yet subtle and complex. Notes of citrus, pine, lemon, hops, and a trace of bitterness (no sourness here). A smooth, wonderful brew.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
A - hops and wheat maybe a hint of citrus
A - pale yellow with dense white head. Good head retention.
T - Its pitched as a session beer so I was not expecting much...and I was not disappointed. Its worst fearure is a very one dimensional hops taste...just a bitter finish almost like it was bitter with hop extract. Devoid of oher hops character.
P - light bodied, noticeable carbination, appropriate for a session beer.
O - just donít like this beer. Taste is the flaw...all other categories are appropriate...but taste is just a one dimensional moderate bitterness...I was surprised to see it was dry hopped. Not a session beer for me...definately donít have the urge to drink another one.
