2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Fletche00. Pours a nice straw color with a big, pillowy, off-white head. The lacing is thick and persistent. Smells of damp hay, cilantro, pine, and just a hint of lemons, and maybe some bubblegum or bananas, if you’re really searching for them. Lightly bitter and a little funky and sour. Only a touch of grainy sweetness. Medium body, sticky, astringent, a little harsh. Overall, this is an unfortunate hoppy wheat ale. The bittering hops overwhelm what should be subtle wheat notes, leaving something more akin to an overhopped pilsener or mediocre pale ale. This leaves a lot to be desired.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a darkish straw amber with good carbonation. Head quickly dissipates and laces the glass. Light malt aroma. Simple flavor profile of malt and wheat. Slight taste in the back of permanent marker. Slightly stale aftertaste with sticky mouth feel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle bought in Indianapolis. A big almost white head that leaves cool lacing. Lightly hazy golden. Wheat, fruit, and citrus hop notes in the aroma. Caramel and citrus hops in the front. Lemon hints and bitterness is moderate. This is not a great beer but not bad by any means.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. Nice looking wheat in my weizen glass. Cloudy gold color with last white head that laced lightly. The nose is sour lemons. Flavor is tart citrus and a mildly harsh sour wheat notes.( sour in a bad way) I also get the spicy Amarillo hop bitterness. Light herbal notes. Honestly I love wheat ales, drink a lot of them, for me this is just off. Either the hops don’t work with the yeast and recipe or this was an old funky bottle. And I trust queenholly didn’t send me an old bottle so…. This brewery needs to revamp or scrap this brew entirely.

12oz bottle from fletche00. Poured an ugly super hazy gold body with an average sized frothy bright white head. Aroma of wet hay, old bread, rotting lemons and dirt. Flavor is dirty lemon pulp, ddry hay, straw, nut shell. Body is nice and creamy with average carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a fan of wheat beers; but I can appreciate a good one. This is decent, but nothing special. I'd take an Upland Wheat over this all the time(another local). Wouldn't turn it down, but wouldn't buy again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear golden body. Short, white head, rapidly diminishing. Mild aroma of toasted grain, candy, lemon, herbs. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body watery texture, lively carbonation. Sweetness dominates despite some lingering bitterness. As average as you can get.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into a fluted pilsner glass. 2 finger head doesn’t last very long. A lot of grainy aroma comes through in the nose with a bit if wheat and a hint of soft fruit. Flavor is much like the aroma. Doesn’t finish as crisp like I thought it would leaving a little bit of a sweet flavor.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I have had better wheats. Pale in appearance with usual wheat turbidity. Taste and aroma are bordering on bland. Better options out there.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pale gold pour. Weird milky nose. Taste is smooth and not wheaty at all. Either skunked or a big miss.
