3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Hazy straw gold pour with a big cracklin’ head and decent lacing. Nose of strong, at times too bitter, citrus and raw yeast. Mouthfeel is pleasantly lively, with a little bit of a spicey bite in the finish. Taste is a bit odd, though, in many ways coming across far more like a cider crossed with a fruity wheat at the expense of any IPA dimension I can detect.

Enjoyed this one a lot, especially for a wheat. Pours super cloudy and very golden, looks awesome, almost glows. Nice and smooth and slightly sweet with a good shot of hops. Not sugary, just sort of warm. Very tasty.

Bottle 650 ml
Aroma: fresh , nice blend of grainy feel , soft wheat character with clean potent hop feel. Very nicely rounded. 8-
Appearance: bright light amber, hazed murky look. Mid creamy top.
Body/Flavour/Palate: soft, gentle approach given thanks to unfiltered body. Light hop character noted , none of harshness. This is straight brew when it comes to taste. Refreshing and very drinkable. Finishing with hints of pine. Well brewed!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to OmegaX for this one. Poured a nice hazy orange, fluffy head and some lacing. Aroma was pungent; Quite full of pine, tangerine and spices. This one tasted great, full of hops and bitter citrus notes forming a great explosion of flavor. The finish was sweet and malty, with somewhat of a spicy finish. Dry and bitter was the feeling left in the mouth. This is an adventurous beer, and a complex one as well.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice and hoppy nose with bits of pine, citrus, caramel and an herbal quality to it. Poured a hazy orange with off white head. Nice to look at. Taste was mainly hops and wheat with a bit of a hefe twist. Some good caramel and bready malts. Quite bitter and pleasing. Excellent for a wheat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really enjoyed this beer. Pours an deep, burnt orange color...slight haze, and nice lingering white head. Nose of Bavarian malts, fruit pith from the hops and a touch of honey as well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and full flavored. Notes of tropical fruits, hefe notes, and bitter hops. Don’t get much of the hefe yeast, but I’m good with the hop character anyway.

22oz Bottle. Take what I’m about to say knowing that Hefes are probably my least favorite style. This I loved. Pours a hazy orange with a 2 finger white cap. Lotta citrus grapefruit in this, along with some tropical hint of banana and pineapple. Flavor is citric hop forward, full and spicy. Quite lovely.
