3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2009 4oz. sampler at RB Yorktown. Appearance was a golden hue with a foamy, white head, and good lacing. The aroma gave off some mild malt, and light fruit and floral notes. The flavor identified the fruit notes more to me as light mid-toned fruits e.g. peach and apricot. A light bodied, refreshing ale that finished with a subtle dryness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler. Pours a hazed yellow that shows a brilliant gold in the center of the glass. Thing white head clings to the glass and lingers. Aroma is light, citric with floral hop notes. Hops are evident in the flavor. Citric tartness is evident with a nicy bitter hop finish. Lacks any potent strong bodied flavor but is a nice, dry quaffable american wheat that present some nice flavor and bitterness. Light with a lively carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Generous looking even for a Mug Club pour. Hazy dark yellow, with a pillowy weizen head. Smells slightly sweet and malty, few esters. Taste does have that citrus quality, some of which may be from yeast as well as hops. Light wheat spiciness works with a mellow malt sweetness. Worthy end-of-summer beer for a last-minute tap-filler.

Per brewer Tim Marshall, this is a new brew created quickly when he needed a wheat ale on tap. It poured a hazy yellow body with a good sized head and nice lacing. The aroma was dominated by tart oranges and tangerines over some soft, bready malt. Much the same with the flavor, juicy and fruity with a tart tangerine finish. I hope Tim saved the recipe for this one.
