COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional summer wheat beer marries a west coast Pale ale. Brewed with locally grown wheat, providing a complex mouthfeel, and single-hopped and generously dry-hopped with Amarillo, creating a glorious citrusy aroma and finish. The approachable 5% abv makes this the perfect session beer on a summer day.

I will just say that this is a very bland beer. I may be biased towards heavier beer but this is a cross between a pale ale and Michelob ultra. Very floral aroma, but missed the mark with a grainy aftertaste. Not my fav.

12 oz bottle. Surprisingly hoppy. Not to bad of a beer, but nothing special. Hops seem to be just there to be hoppy. Not a real smooth hop. I dont taste the wheat at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (1621) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2014
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.

Had from a bottle at home. Decent beer but nothing to get too excited about. Average.

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 I’d 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.

radio_nowhere (748) - Maryland, USA - MAY 16, 2014
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.

Butter and strong dandelion nose. Hazy yellow, headless. Dandelion dominated flavor. Light body and clean.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2014
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 can’t 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.

Drjohnrock (428) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2014
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.

MunBro (251) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
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.
