1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
651mL thanks to mkabull on BA. Pours a hazy, glowing orange with a larger, rocky, buttermilk head. Long retention and thicker lace. Nose is soapy, chemical, moves to banana and clove hefeweizen esters eventually. Some mild vinegar and off characters. Taste is a little off- vegetal, minerally, just weird off characters like first homebrew batches. Diacetyl slickness, minerally, mildly vegetal. Very odd- not enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle sent by lushawn for the STL RB Gathering. Thanks, Shawn, for giving us a taste of your new neighborhood brewery! Pours a hazy gold color with a small white head. Aroma is pretty wheaty, with lots of lemon and orange citrus, coriander, and sweet malts. Flavor of oranges, wheat, coriander, and sweet and pale malts. Light-bodied, with a citrusy, wheaty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. How is this not considered a hefeweizen around these parts, or at least a wheat ale?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Randalls Fairview Heights. Lots of globules of sediment were loosened while it was being rolled. The beer is unfiltered golden orange and has a big white fluffy head. I smell cloves and oranges. The blood oranges are tasted first and take it far from a classic hefe. There is also a saison quality with sourness and earth. The hop choice does not work and it has a sourness to it. This one is kind of confused.
