3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp, clear light copper coloured body with a ridiculously large, five centimetre tall, super soapy tan coloured head that leaves a very very ugly ’lace’. Aroma of hops, wheat, alcohol, yeast, curacao and a good fresh herb smell as well. Medium-bodied; Strong hop flavours up front of perfumey and lightly grassy notes coupled with a good wheat flavour that shows up very refreshing and finishes with a tad of a citrus character. Aftertaste hits more of the yeast and wheat than anything else, but some lightness is noticeabler throughout with a very easy-to-drink beer. Overall, a very nice wheat ale that shows what this style is about and in my opinion, a very good representative of this style! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Good Beer in New York, New York on 13-July-2014 for US$2,29 sampled back at home here in Washington on 03-October-2014.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce can courtesy of Secret Santa, 7/30/14. Thanks! A little nervous as the top of the can has completely bulged out. Pours a hazy orange color topped by about 16 ounces of head. Frothy, tan and fading quickly. Aroma of tropical fruits, wheat, a mild bit of band-aid. The taste is tropical fruit, pale malt, wheat, citrus zest, pineapple. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness, decent balance.

Probably my favorite wheat beers, hands down. A nice clean hop forward wheat with citrus and some tropic notes. Flavors are fantastic and clean finishing. Definitely an awesome beach beer

12 oz can. Super foamy foggy gold. Took a few pours to settle in my shaker. Nose is wheat, mango, slight musk and honey. Medium body with crisp hops and a tang. Taste is pink grapefruit, melon, passionfruit, lemon zest and grain. I’m loving these hoppy wheat ales.

Last draft on my first Fishale visit. Hazy orange and gold color with a medium white head and thick lacing. Very faint aroma of sweet oranges. Pleasant taste that starts with Mandarin oranges but finishes with some nice hoppy bitterness. Refreshing and nicely balanced.

Draft - Passion fruit and orange. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Passion fruit, light bitterness and a bit of wheat. Nice and different, although the sweetness would limit my consumption.
