12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Fairfax, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium fizzy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, plum-like fruit notes and a faintly hoppy finish. The taste is toasted malts, bitter hops, a faint bit of chocolate and a caramel finish. Medium bodied. Drinkable. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
half asleep, i thought this was another American pale wheat, even after pouring with a moderate colour and white head. instead got a malt play with some hops. A little roast in there, a bit watery, drinkable and not bad for a beverage.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at AleFest Dayton: This beer is a slightly hazy dark amber/orange color with a compact off-white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is malty with a hint of hops. Medium-bodied and dry with malt and caramel flavors, plus some hops in the background. The finish is both malty and fruity. Pretty straightforward.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rusty amber clear colored body with an off-white, plain head (cola bubbles). Basic grainy nose with light hints of cedar wood and hay, but mostly just cracker scented malts. Flavor is the same – clean, without any glaring defects other than a boring recipe – with basic flavors of cracker malts and faint hay or corn. An ok beer but nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with no head over a clear golden orange body. Aroma of grass, body odor, grainy and light hops. Taste is sweet and grainy with what I swear is nearly a hint of watermelon (as odd as that may sound). Thin and dry mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Clear copper color with nice tan head and good lacing. This beer creates the same flavor as aroma. Thereís sweet caramel malts, a bit of biscuit, dryer tasting roasted malts and some floral to spicy hops. Tasty brew.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled on 7/18/07. Poured an ugly, cloudy medium orange with very little carbonation and only the faintest dusting of head. My first impression from the aroma was "American wheat ale".. had that sweetened-up-to-make-it-tolerable/intriguing/palat character to it.. some of the sweetness appeared berry-related.. I just didnít dig it. The flavor was a little more agreeable.. lightly-toasted berries and caramel at the core with a mild grassy/herbal hop presence.. more berries on the finish, which made it a bit hard to choke down.. decent mild smoky accents throughout. Lighter-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. man.. I just didnít care for this.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This reddish orange ale poured with a fluffy off-white head and a caramel aroma. The flavor is heavy roasted malt with a raspy bitter finish.
