3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 from Brewforia Meridian.. Paid a very expensive $5ish for the bottle... It pours very clear with a pretty much nonexistent white head... thin cap.. nothing in the way of lacing.
Nose is grainy wheat/lesser pale malt... hops are a bit grassy but slightly more citric.. pretty proper.
Grainy/slightly husky pale malt on the palate meshes okay with the only decent up front bitterness... mid palate a slightly better citrus hop essence balances.
Body shows the wheat... I dig it.
I like a good American Wheat and Sawtooth does a good job with this one.. The Widmer brothers could learn a trick or two.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together on facebook chat. This is pretty much clear and golden. A different hue to that gold. A fluffy white head and a lot of carbonation floats up to it. Fruit in the aroma but not a lot. Fruit flavors are tasted. Oranges. Wheat notes and grass. Actually grass leads but there is not a lot going on. At the finish the sediment from the glass was poured in and green apple emerged and defined the finish. This was a nice summer ale in that it was light fare and pleasant drinking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. My 22oz bottle poured clear gold. White head. No lacing. Nose of grassy hops. Some fruit. Orange. Medium plus body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is big on grassy hops, and some citrus. Apples appear late and appear to be from the sediment in the last pour.Some sourness in finish. Easy drinking.

Bottle from Brewer’s Haven. There are enough hops in this wheat ale to almost pass it off as a session IPA. Hops up front but fade quickly. Pilsener aroma, in addition to the grains and hops, some citrus (tangerine)in the taste. Not a big fan of wheat ales, but this one’s a keeper.
