4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It has been a couple years since I have last had this so I am going off memory. Aroma is full of funky wheaty goodness. Pours a clear gold/orange with a nice lasting foam. Flavor is tart with a nice hop presence bringing it all together. One of the best wheat beers I have ever had. Made a journey to the brewery whenever I saw this on the growler list. Hope to see this brewed again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Churchkey.
Pours a good looking bright tangerine color with a tiy bit of a brownish hue. Thin why’d head and some lacing. Nose brings forward some sweet caramel along with a bit of citrus rind. Taste is about he same without much sticking out. I would say this is past its prime. Feel is okay with a medium body and some carbonation to carry what flavors there are. Drinks okay, but I think this one is done.
Serving type: on-tap

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at churchkey for takeover tour. Really liked this one a lot. I know they hopped the crap out of it originally, but it’s 5 years old now and what was left was a decently hopped, really refreshing medium bodied ale. Good stuff for sure. A wheat on steroids I guess? Great citrus and grass aromas as well as really smooth clean mouthfeel distinguish it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Rattle ’N Hum. Pours an amber orange color with a white foam head. Has an aroma of grapefruit and caramel. Has a fruity taste with a nice bitter layer and some caramel notes throughout. Medium to thin mouthfeel. Tastes like the sweetness has come to the forefront as this brew has aged.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap RnH: Hazy golden with a white film. Papery aroma with a faded hop, quite spearmint like. Velvety body with a minty flavor. Cookiesh malts brace the body, but it’s quite oxidized at this point. Still solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Oldish hoppy aroma with some toffee sweet malts and herbal notes. the flavor has older herbal-ish hoppy notes and some lighty sweet toffee-like malts. Decent. I bet this was really good fresh.

On tap at Naja’s 10/7/2010
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with no head.
Aroma: Peach and light oxidation (tropical fruit covered in caramel).
Taste: Bitter hops and faintly sweet malt.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, sticky and fully carbonated.
Overall: The mighty has fallen. I loved this fresh, I loved it with 2 years on it even. It’s time to really retire this one.
