Draft at Alla Spina. Pours a hazy yellow with thin, fluffy, white head. Nose of wheat, banana, citrus, tropical fruit, grass, some coriander and clove. Medium body, light bitterness on the finish. Typical wheat beer flavors with some decent hop flavor coming through. I was avoiding this, anticipating and overly spiced winter beer but this is change of pace. Lightly hoppy wheat beer. I’d definitely drink it again.

A solid ale. Suited more for summer if your ask me. Nice clean wheat aromas and flavors with some fall spices to make it interesting. Good stuff.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Aroma suggests celery. Med minus body. Flavor is citrus/spice. More or less like the description. Flavors are strong. Yet ... boring. Really. I don’t get why I see it that way, but I do. Sort of a wit, yet not pushing that envelope.

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2014
bottle. Pale golden with one finger head. Strongly carbonated wheat beer with mild spicing and light hop bite. Doesn’t scream winter beer, but it works for me.

Reynolds314 (2248) - Connecticut, USA - APR 5, 2014
Very boring lemony wheat ale with a bit of banana runts and some flowers. Not bad but really quite blah. Looks like a macro on the pour as well which wasnt the best.

Bottle from last night’s session but I forgot to rate it. Clear gold. Light, crisp, wheat and grains, a little citrus. Pretty good, but nothing special.
