TH28 (186) - - JAN 10, 2015
Appearance: Pale yellow and cloudy, with minimal white head. Aroma: Intense floral, lemon, grassy, perfume like hop aromas. Taste: Light, cracker malt flavor that gives way to a strong hop bitterness and hints of grapefruit, grass, and herbal hop flavors. Mouthfeel: Light body considering wheat base, with a high carbonation. Finish: Crisp and dry with a light citrus acidity and tartness. Overall: Love the hop aroma of this beer. Taste is less complex and flavorful than I was expecting with the aroma, but typical of an American Wheat. Must be lots of dry hopping. Solid AW.

16oz growler from Whole Foods Falls Church. Pours a hazy yellow with lots of frothy, white head. Nose has a cool balance of hef-y qualities, bananas, clove, yeast and floral, fruity hoppy notes. Flavors follows along, again, well balanced, quite a bit of fruit, both starchy banana and some guava, then nice citrus notes, lemon, lime, some soap too. Nice, balanced finish.

Quite good, the hoppy wheat has been getting my attention lately. This one is a little lighter than the Flying Fish FUSandy I had recently. Very quaffable with resiny hops and a bit of hefe-style wheat. refreshing.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2014
On tap at the Mexican Food Factory. Aroma is light delicious hops; some lime zest, pine, and slight kiwi. Pours pale blonde with a very light fizzy head. Taste is like butter. Perfect citrussy hops; lime, starfruit, and slight resin with just a hint of smooth buttery wheat at the end. Lightest mouthfeel ever made this completely chuggable. Went back for thirds.

Tasting notes from 6/21 Joplin Macadoodles Beerfest: Hoppy, lemonade aroma I found rather pleasant. Taste, however...I just can hardly ever get into wheats. Not outstanding at all.

Canned from Bier table GCT. Gold, cludy, lemony citrus wheat and a bit of a hoppy grapefruit. Not that great.
