COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We often hear "Try our famous wings." F’real?? Dudes, we’re from Rochester! A magical land where the river flows backwards and chicken wings double in size. Where a big, bold and saucy Snack deserves an equally tasty brew. A land where we dare you to eat the bread at the bottom of the sauce! Country Shwheat, because it’s 2 am somewhere.

superspak (3215) - Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours lightly hazy and cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, peach, pineapple, pear, honey, wheat, floral, grass, light pine, bread, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon zest, orange zest, peach, pineapple, pear, honey, wheat, light pine, floral, grass, bread, and floral earthiness. Light pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zest, peach, pineapple, pear, wheat, honey, light pine, floral, grass, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of citrus hops with bread/honey malt balance; with a great hop/malt sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately slick and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice imperial hoppy wheat ale. All around nice balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2013
On tap at the Creekhouse. Light wheat and orange zest, raw malt, and some carbonic gaseousness. Neutral fruity character. Medium golden amber clear topped with white lacing head. Medium-light bodies with medium carbonation. Wheat notes, mild sweetness. Oxidation or perhaps beer line character? Mild to medium bitter finish with dry astringent bitter after.

DocLock (8376) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans Collegeville. Pours turbid orangy dark straw with a finger of off-white head. Nose is wheaty malt, hopcitrus, corn flakes. Tastes wheaty malty, with notes of hops, bready corn flakes, apricot, mild lemongrass. As it warms, I get more wheat, tangeriney citrus, white pepper, and well hidden alcohol with a big palate heft and solid complexity. However, as I finish the bomber, I get a semi-metallic flavor that does detract somewhat from the overall experience.

blipp (6709) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Growler. Pours gold with a white head. Wheaty and lightly sweet malts, with grassy and flowery hops, followed by a nice medium bitter finish. The stronger ABV is a bit noticeable, but it doesn’t detract much overall. Pretty good.
