3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/5/2015. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops, pale malt, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal floral/grassy bitterness and slight wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, pear, apple, wheat, biscuit, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus hops, pale malt, and fruity yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very good pale wheat ale. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of citrus hops, pale malt, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours to a nice creamy white head that has some lacing and retention. Color is hazy orange-yellow. Aroma is fruity, candy-like and floral with some wheaty notes as well. Flavor suggests a hint of coriander, acacia or some other flavoring added (says on the label "ale with natural flavor added") and the soft, clean , crisp taste of red wheat and hops barely detectable. Dry, spicy crisp finish. Mouthfeel is correct for style, no anomalies. Overall, this beer hits the spot for summer sessioning.
