2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pour golden from the tap with little head. The aroma is faint wheat and maybe some malt. The taste is subtle citrus with no hippiness to it. There is a little bread flavor but its watery and just lacks pizzazz.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
December 30th, 2011 - Twisted Pine has long been a far away brewery which is, in reality, very local. I simply havenít had the opportunity since taking up craft beer consumption as a hobby. But today (well, December 30th) I had a DD and some pocket money with which to tour Boulderís brewery scene. My first stop was Twisted Pine, which turned out to be the coziest and "cutest" of the bunch. It fits right in with architecture thatís popular ever slightly to the west: big timber beams, fake and real, and a mountain cabin air. It fits Twisted Pine well. Through the window behind the bar you can see the brewery at work. The shock of how much beer is coming out of a relatively small establishment will have you thirsting for a beer soon enough. Beginning the sampler is Twisted Pineís Rocky Mountain Wheat - the token light beer that every brewery these days feels like they need to peddle for the balmier days. The aroma is faint and elusive, flirting with touches of wheat and mineral water. The flavor too is light, and has a slightly off quality. The combination of a light, tired carbonation and a mild touch of corn followed by a long tortilla chip aftertaste makes this a slow start to the massive set of beer samplers before me.

On tap at Twisted Pine. Poured straw color with minimal head that dissipated immediately. Mild aroma, wheat and sweet grass. Flavor is mild wheat, somewhat sweet. Light carbonation and body, almost seems under carbonated. Drinkable and light, a bit too mild even for a wheat beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour on tap at the brewery is slightly hazy yellow with white head, aroma brings notes of slight grainy, biscuit malt, ever so slight fruit and grass notes as well. Taste is very low in profile, some slight biscuit and fruit notes, a very slight grass note, finishing fairly watery. Not the best.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub.
Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a one finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slight spicy aroma with a balance of banana, bready yeast and citrus fruit. Subtle zesty clove along with some lemon zest and light fruit.
Medium bodied but on the lighter end with some peppery spice and citrus rind up front followed by the bready yeast and light fruit notes. A little thinner than I had hoped for but there is some nice bread flavor that counters the spice and sweeter fruit notes. Clean and easy to drink.

Tap @ brewery. Clear slightly dark gold, with a thin lace head. Smells of wheat and very light pale malt--pretty light overall, actually. Taste is also light and uninspired. Light wheat, light malt, no hop, almost no bitterness, light body.
