On tap at RB Chicago. Opaque dark orange beer with a white dusting of head produces a nice, tight lacing on the glass. You can definitely smell the citrusy hop oils here; it smells like a light IPA. In the mouth it evokes Chouffe’s Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel, but the wheat malt here seems to complement the hop forwardness better than in that beer; it adds a lightness to the citrus and provides a nice platform on which the bitterness can play. Hops are juicy throughout with a crisp (though somewhat metallic) bitterness in the finish. Wonderfully sessionable; would be a perfect summer beer. Reminds me of Bosco’s Hopgoddess in its nice combination of flavors.

tap at RB Chicago...cloudy yellow brown pour with a nice frothy off-white head... lighlty hopped aroma with citrus and refreshing floral hops... citrus hops upfront and pleasantly, mild lemony notes. refreshing and drinkable.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy hefeweizen golden brown. Nose is distinct C-hops, and little else. Resiny and citric with a dash of dirt. Taste is pretty one dimensional, lacking in the hop flavor department, though the floral notes in the nose kinda make up for it. A bit too much going on, but not enough flavor. Okay.

On tap @ RB Chicago. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, and floral hops. The hops really overpower the light wheat flavor, which is fine by me. Very easily to drink, I enjoyed it.

On tap at RB Chicago, pours hazy and murky yellow with white head. Nose of citrus, pine, and earth. Flavor has nice citrus, earthy, and floral hop notes. Extremely light and drinkable with a huge amount of hoppy goodness. Now if only this could have been a hefeweizen it would have probably taken it too the next level.

Thanks to dm9831 for a glass from his growler - This had a wit look to it, a cloudy yellow body, but with little of any head. It had a wheat malt aroma with a fruitiness to it including some citrus from the hops. Medium bodied, its flavor is a wheaty tartness more than balanced by the fruity and lightly bitter hop flavors. This would be a good one for the warm weather months.

hazy yellow color, no head, tiny off white bubbles, some lacing. nose has a hint of banana, but otherwise quite airy. if there is any banana in the flavor, it is welcomely overwhelmed by the hops. rather tasty. medium bodied, nice bitter finish. surprisingly fun. on tap at rb chicago.
