3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle -
Found this at my local BevMo. Zero fanfare about this beer, so I figured..what the heck. Actually a nice, lawnmower beer that hit the spot this July 4th weekend. A clean aroma, light doughy-notes. An aggressive hop profile for a wheat beer. In fact, I got nearly no wheat notes, but did get some bran-cereal like flavors under the hops. Loved the hops, but pretty one-dimensional. Very refreshing.

The beer to end all beers. Miss OG West so bad but the crystal is a second. My bestie brings it to me from the brewery cause he is the man.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is lemon zest tangy wheat. Appearance is crystal clear straw with frothy white head that retains very well. Taste is zesty lemon wheat with some herbal spicy lingering. Hop bitterness present and crisp... well balanced with mild sweet malt. Palate is light and crisp, lemon zest lingers on tongue with herbal hops. Overall a near perfect American Wheat with some fun tangy noble hopping.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle purchased by Theydon_Bois at the Torpedo Room and shared at the Hyatt. Thanks again, Cloin! Pours a clear bright gold with a small white head that settles into an uneven film. Notes of herbs, straw, crackers, dusty grains, a hint of fruit, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean, quaffable mouthfeel. Nice, simple, easy drinker. Cans would be nice for pool/river/ocean-side.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a healthy golden glow, fluffy head of bubbles that retains and leaves some lacing. Smell is wheat, hayfields, bitter hops, and sweetness. Taste follows. Not so heavy on the wheat in the taste, more like their pale ale really, which I find is common with Sierra Nevada (everything being hoppy). But it sits well on you, good long aftertaste, and prett solid beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - Not much at all on the aroma, some sweetness. Pale gold with a rich white head. Light sweet and creamy with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Texture is nice, but very boring.
