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.

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.

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.

Pours a hazy orange body with a bubbly white head leaving behind little lacing. It smeels sweet of citrus and wheat at the same time. It tastes like banana with a bit of a bitter bite to it. It is an easy drinking beer, especially for 7.3% abv. I would drink this beer again but it is one I have to be in the mood for.

A tale of two beers, really - the first pour (from a bomber) was more like a traditional IPA - not very cloudy,lots of crisp citrusy hops, and a dry-ish finish. Not a whole lot of wheat character evident. The second pour, however was really cloudy (yeah, I know, should’ve swirled it before the first pour. so sue me...) and not much head. Not surprisingly, then there is a lot of yeasty sweetness in the glass, with a lot of banana and pineapple mixed with the citrusy, woody hops. All in all, a pretty enjoyable experience.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex hop, malt and wheat aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would share this with a freind.

Bomber. Poured fairly clear medium orange with a short-lived whitish head.. nice color to it. The aroma picked up fresh orange meat, bananas, and red wheat.. vibrant, and the hefty hop bill worked well with the rest of the brew.. I wasn’t expecting to like this, but I did. The flavor found tangy orange zest, wheat, and a bit of black pepper over meatier orange and bready notes.. tangy and spicy on the long, warm finish. Medium-bodied, scratchy, and well-carbonated on the palate.. spicy and engaging, but not the greatest flow.. I’d gladly drink it again.

Pretty great for a wheat ale. This is no gumballhead but it is quite tasty. The hops add a nice balance to the wheat which imparts its creamy mouthfeel. Good bitterness at the end but is still an easy drinker.

Pours super hazy orange with a large, fluffy, sudsy white head. Smells strongly of hops and wheat. Tastes like grapefruit and wheat, lots of bitterness! Full-bodied with an almost oily, slick texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Terrapin Side Project Indiana Krunkles finishes with a decent bitterness.
