Hey we go, made for the texas heat .. . Poured out a hazy yellow, great head that died down quite a bit- some lacing left over .. . light banana skin, mushy wheat, and barley straight from the farm .. . it was to refreshing for me write anything else, its all gone .. . float like a butterfinger, stank like a bee. ..

Pours yellow into the glass with a small dissipating white head. Aroma is grainy. Flavor is wheaty and pretty one-dimensional. I would never describe this as a ’bad beer,’ but it is not necessarily something memorable.

Floral aroma. Golden coloured smooth on the palate and hoppy with a hint of dryness in a slightly creamy malt finish.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On-tap at Opal Divine’s Marina during Texas Craft Beer Week.
Yellow Armadillo pours as advertised, showing a bright, brassy color with a slight goldenrod haze. Good carbonation, but the eggshell white head doesn’t last too long or leave much in the way of lacing. Aroma is faint...minimal even. Touches of grassy hops, wheat, and a hint of tropical fruit sweetness.
The taste borders on blandness, but packs just enough juice to keep the palate marginally entertained. Again, light wheat flavors are backed by some tropical fruitiness. Hops are an afterthought on the finish with some grain and mineral notes. Mouthfeel is appropriate, with a crisp carbonation level and smooth, medium-light body that goes down very easily. I could put away an entire pitcher of Yellow Armadillo Wheat by myself without batting an eye, but unfortunately I’d get bored after the first pint. Thirsty Planet’s other two offerings (Buckethead IPA and Thirsty Goat Amber) are far superior.

Enjoyed at GABF. Nice straw colored appearance with a delightful nose. Nice bold wheat flavor on the front end of this brew with a crisp smooth finish. Skip the lemons and oranges, this stands alone.

Typical wheat. Cloudy, rich golden color. Easy drinking with the added lemon. Not particularly memorable but it is very competent.
