dchmela (2631) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2011
22oz bomber. Pours a orange amber with a thick white head and tons of chunky yeast. Huge citrus and peach hop aroma with a touch of wheat. Taste is smooth, chewy wheat malt with lots of citrus hops poking through. Good brew.

The Salmon colored body was hazy, and the head formation was nearly four fingers thick, at the top of the half liter Weizen glass. The smell was exactly what would imagine a Wheat IPA would be. There were aromas of banana, bubblegum, grapefruit, and pine. The taste provided a unique combination of American critic hops, and sweet and wheat malt with delicate phenols. The hops were clearly in control of the experience, as they should be in an IPA, but the malt still showed through. It did feel more light and watery than an IPA of similar strength, and the lack of stickiness made the finish a bitter but short one. The mouthfeel became a lot more creamy, when the yeast was stirred up and poured in, and some clove spiciness crept in at that time. But this cause the bitterness to become less IPA like as well. A tasty side experiment, with no obvious flaws.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Cloudy orange golden with minimal white lace. Nose is strong broken apart hop pellet, with some light wheat like flavors in the background. Lots of grapefruit and spicy hop aromas. Bitter at first, some light sweetness from the wheat, and finishes bitter and a little too astringent.

22 oz bomber. Pours a cloudy orange caramel with a small off white head. Aroma of bubble gum, banana plantains, lightly sweet candied malts and light peppery notes. Taste of bubble gum, bananas, candied malts and hints of pepper.

ChainGangGuy (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2011
22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a modestly hazy, copper-orange body with a frothy, foamy, off-white head. Smell: Lightly toasty, lightly sweet-scented barley and wheat with particularly pithy citrus fruits, a few drops of pineapple juice, and ground up aspirin. Taste: Pale maltiness, lightly bready, and with a fast twinge of wheat. Moderately sweet. Pithy citrus fruits, orange and white grapefruit sprinkled with a pinch of Goody’s Extra Strength headache powder. Pronounced citric bitterness. The spicy phenolics from the yeast are well overshadowed by the hops. Sun-dried hay stack and just a lingering bitterness as the body thins towards the dry, bitter finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Overall: Makes me think of a slightly lighter version of Stone 9th Anniversary Ale, a beer I just didn’t like. And here I’m not liking this, either, as it really just doesn’t mesh well for me. I’d rather reach for something like a Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2011
draft @ redlight redlight. Spicy floral nose with hints of pine and citrus with sweet bread. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Classic German hefe weizen notes upfront with citrus and banana but that immediatly turns to resinous hops with earthy bitterness and pine with underlying citrus notes. Finished citrusy with a dry bitterness in the aftertaste. Very nice.

had at redlight, pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. aroma is wheat, banana, citrus, hops, and yeast. very smooth taste, creamy banana, with a wheat grassy aftertaste. body left a bit to be desired. i could taste the alcohol but the body was still lacking. overall a pretty damn good wheat ale!

dmac (3989) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2011
22 oz bomber from EZ. Poured a milky body orange with an average to large fizzy whtie head. Aroma was super juicy with lots of orange and grapefruit, mango, light touch of wet grass and dry hops with some agitation. Medium bodied with bubbly carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste make this fairly sippable. Flavor is similar to the aroma with lots of orange, mango, grapefruit along with some dry grass and crusty bread. I liked this better then Monk’s Revenge yet somehow I scored them the same, weird.

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Bomber. Pours heavily thick and turbid with fluffy 3-finger whoite head. This one looks damn good, and is definitely worthy of a 5 for appearance, and the lacing is top notch too. Nose is fermented apricot, mango, hops, spicy florals. Tastes like graepfruit juice mixed with pineapple juice, plus a heavy wheaty and hoppy flavor, some rye bread, and maltiness.I didn’t ger much spice of hefe flavors here, but what I did get reminds me quite a bit of a mix between Cigar City Guava Grove and Humidor jai alai, but not as intense in flavor or aroma.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2011
5/19/11. Bomber. Cloudy orange pour with a frothy manilla head that sticks around. Banana on the aroma at first with a whiff of burnt cream and spicy yeast with noticable citrus and biting hop presence, but it’s overshadowed by the hefe aromas. Sweet banana and cream flavor followed by a bug bitter hop kick that is lacking a bit in flavor profile/complexity, or is perhaps again overshadowed by the hefe part beyond the bitterness. Still enjoyable, however.
