3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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!

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.
