3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
First, a tasty beer. Since it has no real category, I can’t really take points off for that I suppose...
The wheat aspect of it is hidden, so it comes across as a hoppy pale ale. Very delicious, but what is wheaty about it? It compares to Gumball Head in every way. The hop flavors are different, but otherwise it is a hoppy American wheat beer. Not yeasty, but hoppy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle courtesy of a splendid trade with FlacoAlto. It pours with a murky copper colored body that supports a thin near white head. The aroma offers up plums, apples, sugary malts, earthy green apple and funky earthy yeastiness. The taste quickly gets into honey and malt sweetened apple and plum notes. To midway it picks up brown sugar and an earthy funky yeast sensation. Above all of the sweetness hovers a modest tartness that seems almost tannin like or something. Interesting brew that I am glad to finally try after mistakenly missing it on far too many occasions.

"the age has definitely mellowed out the hops. makes me wonder what it tasted like 3 years ago... in 2009 the hops are almost non-existent, but what’s left is a maltier sweeter taste, a unique brew...still quite good."

Bottle from Aces and Ales. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with no head. The aroma is wood and faint citrus. Similar flavor with sweet finish. Held up ok.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cellared and enjoyed November 2013: I think I saved this one a little too long. Color was orangey yellow with a mild white head. The citrusy wheat flavor is present but the carbonation was light. Good beer overall. Enjoyed one a few years ago and that one was better. May have just kept too long.

Hazy orange from the tap. Caramel and citrus bouquet tops the light grainy mouthfeel. Does not taste like wheat malt. Finish is thick and sweet.

Pours golden amber pretty hazy with a nice solid tan head. The aroma brings some citrusy wheat and malty notes. The flavor brings the same with a bit of citrus rind on the end as well.

bottle. drank it on 11/26/11, pours a orange with very little head. had a carmel type smell and citrus. I believe the beer went sour or maybe thats the way it should have been. Taste bad. I am sure this was a lot better didnt age well at all.
