3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of pine and grapefruit notes. Overall, the beer smells very fruity. The flavor is mainly made up of pineapple and other tropical fruit, with some wheat and a little bit of biscuit malt. I also get a light to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. soft nose of muddled yeast, wheat and hops, thatís about what itís supposed to be, right? this is, itís rather dull, quiet and neutral. creamy texture with a round and full body; again mild and neutral wheat, hops and yeast, a stew, basically, without any distinct flavors standing out or showing any dominance. the apricots are there, I guess. who knows. does it matter? no, just like everything else.

full of wheat so as to taste like a root vegetable with some sugary sweetness and a trace of butter. A nice grapefruit citrus hop adds dimension and improves the body which of course would seem light. Some fresh bright lemon and you have these three flavors bouncing around in your palate. A bit of fresh sharp pine in the suds? Not a bad thing!

It is like they were channelling their MH northern neighbors, only with a wheat expression. Another winner here for drinkability, and a bit of complexity. Not really to style in American terms, but still a fun beer to drink. The wheat/hops interplay is ncely done.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Light orange in color, almost no head. Cloudy. Sweet smell in the aroma and some floral hops. I can pick out apricots and lemons for sure. Taste is lots of apricots with some other odd spices. Not a big fan of this one.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy bright gold, with a rocky white head. Aggressive aroma that is highlighted by pine, sticky citrus - particularly lime and tangerine, apricot, and dank fresh hops. The flavor is bright, citrusy, slightly spicy, and very fruity, with the token grapefruit, but also a good deal of passionfruit and green mango. The finish is astringently bitter, but very fresh and fruity. An excellent offering from Sam Adams.
