This light colored wheat ale might have a hazy appearance, but one thing’s crystal clear: it practically sparkles with bright, citrusy flavor. Enjoy!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. Cloudy, nearly opaque golden-orange body has lots of legs and a huge billowy head. Nose is flowery-spicy grains of paradise, apricot boiled in lightly earthy spices, and a touch of lemon zest. Taste is flowery apricot, white grape perfume, lemon zest, and some lightly spicy wood on the finish. Way overdone with the grains of paradise and orange zest on this one. Light body is too perfume laden to be called balanced, but has enough spicy astringency and an odd wooden bitterness to almost remain drinkable. Medium level of carbonation is nice and mostly smooth, but unfortunately is about the best thing about this beer. I think this might actually sip well with some fish or a spicy food, but is nearly undrinkable by itself.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy and cloudy yellow body with a small frothy white head. The nose is an all out assault of coriander with a little orange peel and yeastiness. The flavor is much the same, loads of soapy tasting coriander and not a whole lot else. Light bodied and soft with gentle carbonation. Not the best Wit, they overdid it with the coriander.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a hazy, particle laden, yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is wheat, coriander, allspice from the adjuncts, melon, light citrus peel, especially lemon....taste is slightly sweet with floral honey tones, wheat, coriander, herbal tones, light allspice, finishing with a light dry but lingering bitterness.....mouth feel, light body, minimal astringency, hints of acidity, low carbonation with light tingle. This is a nicely balanced beer, with the exception that the bitter citrus tones are a bit too strong. Also it is too herbal and overall a bit heavy handed. I would reduce the herbal additions, back off on the spices, and try again. BJCP 7/1/13/4/6

This ones pretty different. I have a little bit of a cold so I can't tell if it's a good or bad kinda different. The aroma is pretty unique. It smells pretty hoppy with some fruity overtones. It has a wheat beer kinda vibe to it. I think I'd give this one another shot.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is intensely tropical, displaying fruits like pineapple or grapefruit. The appearance is cloudy, sort of a home-squeezed lemonade color with a thin white head. The taste is totally out of balance and too fruity. This beer is what I would imagine mixing Blue Moon and Purple Haze to taste like.
