2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a somewhat clear golden color. The head is a fluffy two finger white shade. I love the lacing it leaves behind, definitely.
S: Thereís a lot of wheat on the nose, to the point where it overpowers any other notes (such as the advertised hibiscus). Iím not a fan of the aroma.
T: The flavor profile works better. A light fruitiness gives way to wheat-laden finish, spiked with some cream. I couldnít tell you what hibiscus tastes like, but thereís a distinct floral quality on the back end. Itís pretty decent all told.
M: Extremely creamy and soft, typical of the style. However, the general texture and finish is too heavy; even with the aid of strong carbonation, it gets in the way of drinkability.
O: This is now the 4,365th different wheat ale Iíve had from Sam Adams - and just like the others, this one is pretty middling. Pleasant, though.

"Hmmm. interesting and refreshing. Light fruityness, slightly herbal, a touch of sweet and juuust a splash of tartness. For a lawnmower type beer, pretty nice. Iíd try again."

It poured a lightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of hibiscus and floral notes with a touch of wheat malt. The taste was similar and a little dry. It had a light body with crisp carbonation. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 41į. Color is a deep gold with a slight haze And good carbonation that gives it a small soft head. Aroma of honey and a bit of fruity hops. It has a lighter medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is wheat that comes across sweet with a hint of white pepper, a light fruit note and the hibiscus showing on the end. In the after taste the sweet lingers giving it a honey taste. Overall its a nice, easy drinking brew with a unique flavor palate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale hazy yellow color with a large yet fizzy head and decent lacing. Pale malts, wheat and floral hops and flowers permeate the nose. Wheat, pale malts, grassiness, and some flowery sweetness which I assume is hibiscus. Aftertaste is a earthy grassy flavor that sticks around for a long time. Body is moderate with some moderate carbonation. Good idea but lacks flavor.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Average beer with a little twist. Faint wheat and grassy smell. Cloudy yellow color with a white head. Lighter weight palate with average carbonation. A little foamy. Tastes were of wheat and grains. Iím not sure what hibiscus tastes like so I guess the slightly unique flavor could be associated with that. Easy to drink but not very exciting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow orange with a large lasting white head. Aroma and taste is sweet citrus, light wheat and banana notes, fruity with some floral essence and mild bitterness. A light to medium body, crisp, refreshing on the palate with light carbonation. Some sweet malt, wheat, floral essence and light fruity and mild bitterness on the end. A nicely balanced brew, refreshing and enjoyable.
