Reviewed June 2011 - Up front there are some banana and cloves. There’s the German wheat beer coming through. Then come the hops. Citrus and grapefruit. Instead of working together nicely I felt like the ingredients clashed a bit. Not a horrible beer at all. Just not something I would drink again.

Wish that I had tried this a little more fresh. I probably would have had a higher opinion. Certainly pours like an IPA. Amber orange in color. Smells like a blend of a wheat beer and a IPA. Certainly has the esters of wheat. Notes of banana bread and spices. Some hops are certainly present but they don’t seem very fresh. Also some caremel and sweet candy aromas. Tastes like a wheat IPA. They certainly named the beer right. Good but not great. Needs mroe hopppy goodness.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2011
THOUGHTS: Huh? it was really like someone poured an IPA into a wheat beer. Very citric. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, murky, medium copper with an average to large, off-white head that slowly diminished leaving good lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel and wheat; moderate to heavy grapefruit and orange hops; light yeast; lemon and more orange. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, slightly sour and lightly bitter; while the finish was light to moderately sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic and sour. There was citrus hops, citrus from wheat, grapefruit, orange, lemon, wheat, caramel, and yeast. The light to medium body was oily, a little syrupy and then a little dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

22oz bottle courtesy of mixmasterob. Pours a cloudy orange with a large white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is big, grapefruity hops, with a little yeasty, almost hefe character. Body is medium. Flavor is huge with grapefruit-heavy citrus, and a yeasty, again almost hefe-like taste.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/25/11

Aroma: The nose has some herbal notes, a little citrus, wheat, a bit of pineapple, and piney hops
Appearance: It pours a cloudy dark orange color with a small off-white head that leaves lot of lace
Flavor: The taste is mostly citrus, wheat, and pine, it is lightly sweet, and has a touch of both funk and bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium with an average-to-soft carbonation, and a dry, slightly funky finish to it
Overall Impression: This one is fairly interesting. It has a nice mix of sweet, bitter, and funk. I thought this was a fairly unique brew, and I’m glad I got to try it.

iugrad93 (266) - Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Pours a hazy orangish color with white head and average lacing. Aromas of hay, grass, earthiness, and some floral . Taste is sweet with a nice bitterness and bite. Nice carbonation with bittersweet finish. Overall, a surprising wheat. I really didn’t know this was a wheat until I read the description. Taste more like a IPA and I really liked the full flavor.

p1meatloaf (208) - California, USA - SEP 18, 2011
22 oz from a trade with Big Bearded Bishop in tenn. Poured into an Oskar Blues pint glass in San Diego. Looks orangeish yellow hazy with soapy head. Tastes smells of some floral hops and some sweetness. Tastes at first all hops with some medium thickness on the palate. The hops increase along with the bitterness then a very clean finish with only a slight aftertaste that really tastes like citrus peal. Overall 8 of 10.
