Weirdness is high on this. Taste has hops, dirt, not a wheat flavor. Light yellow color hazy. Tap

Pours a cloudy/hazy golden color with white head. Citrus, light fruits, pine, and some wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with hoppy wheat notes. Nice change of pace for a wheat ale.

12oz can. Cloudy gold tone w/a moderate white head. Had a nice hoppy edge to the wheat base. 6 months old (just got it) but held up well (bump for dating their cans!). Medium body and carbonation.

12oz can canned on 05/18 from TRT. Poured a hazy light yellow-gold with lots of large clinging bubbles and a smaller frothy white head. Aroma of biscuit, wheat, citrus fruit, dough and wet raisin. Flavor is flat and ine dimensional, notes of grain, dry crusts and husk. Blah, boring but 3 1/2 months old.

Another can from a trade with Weezel. Pours a hazy golden colour, big fluffy white head, lots of lace. Nose is typical to style, wheat you, orange, a little orange peel. Tastes sweet, wheaty, orange is light. Decent.

Considering this was an American Pale Wheat Ale, this was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy to bubbly head that dissipated quickly leaving some light stringy lacing that slides immediately. The smell had a big glossy sweet orange over top of some light speckled grainy and grassy sweet hops. The taste copied the smell and carried the orange sweetly into the aftertaste and left a sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a clear sessionability about it. Carbonated nicely, pure sweet orange flowed over a wheat base to broaden nicely over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a solid American Pale Wheat ale, maybe nothing over the top but definitely crushable on a hot Spring day.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of grainy wheat malts and lemon peel. The taste was of wheat, some grains and hints of lemon.

Sampled at esbls. Thanks Doran. Clear yellow gold. Tart and wheaty with fruity hops under. Mild bitternress. The wheat adds a nice smoothness here and flavor. I like it.

Enjoyed from can at Browerij Lane in Brooklyn, NY before going to a show at St Vitus which I have no good reason for being at. Appearance is a very cloudy golden amber with a rich white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is rich in citrus hops, wheat notes, but really citrus is the dominating factor. Taste is good, but real citrusy. Almost a little too much citrus. Happy to have had this though!
