12 ounce bottle from Belmont Party Supply. Pours an amber color with a very slight haze. Very slight. Thin head fades instantly. Aroma of caramel and faint fruits. The taste is wheat, caramel and a faint hop finish. Some apple-like fruits. Medium bodied. Pretty boring.

Orange coloured body, some white head. pleasant enough wheat aromas. Taste a bit orangey, cloves,bannana bread, and above average mouthfeel, although some carbonation offset. Decent drinkability, though not terribly.It’s the style but not the best representative.

On draught at Winking Lizard. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium off-white head that has a lot of large bubbles and recedes quickly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Tart fruit and grassy hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of sour fruit, wheat and malt. The finish is fruity with a banana and wheat aftertaste. Average overall.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle from ryanmcfly1985- thanks again, Ryan! Pours a clear gold with a white ring for a head. Notes of corn, cereal, straw, wheat, sugar, apple, and a metallic thing throughout. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, watery mouthfeel. I’d consider this a weakish wheat ale, as it doesn’t drink much like a hefe at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Slight haze to the medium golden pout, light off-white head, no lace. Aroma has some clove and banana which melds together in an unpleasant butterscotch essence. Flavor is similar in nature, cloyingly sweet, all that really comes through is the butterscotch. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Not feeling on this one - Thirsty Dog is usually pretty solid.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 I am a big fan of this style so perhaps my standards or expectations are a bit too high but this one ended up disappointing me. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky apricot color with a small foamy white head that left some lacing. The aroma was tangy with moderate clove and a light tart and citric presence and a bit of an industrial undertone. The flavor was bready with moderate clove and light notes of bubblegum, coriander and cardboard. The finish was medium length dryish bread , clove and cardboard. Moderately full bodied. Uninspired.
