Very nice beer. You don’t often get beers made from Nelson Sauvin hops. Rumor is that Widmer has stopped making this. - Guess I’ll just have to brew it at home.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz. served into a SA perfect pint glass.
A - Pours a chilled hazed amber with a uniform off white.
S - Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, soapy hops, soft cereal grain, strawberry. Biscuits really start coming out as it warms.
T - Soap and grapefruit hops with a sweet graham cracker malt center. The citrus zest is very clean and carries through to the finish. Some strawberry and spice notes linger.
M - Medium carbonation drops off and turns smooth and creamy, light bodied.
Love the grapefruit. Very clean citrus flavors. Nice graham cracker-like malt adds good balance. Light bodied and very session-able.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper and apple skins. Off white pithy head fades blotchy while sticking to the sides of my glass. Swirls equally blotchy and sticky.
Sweet cereal grains in the back with a crunchy caramelized apple skins zip. Citrus pith in the middle and up front.
Sweet and bready with a nice freshly cut apple sweetness in the middle. Citrus skins along the sides mingle with freshly cut green grass. Slightly dry finish.
An alright session with just enough going on to satisfy the need for some flavor but if you’re looking for any kind of complexity, don’t look here. On that note, I’d drink another one.

The nose is piney and citrusy, typical for an American Pale Ale. The are a lot of pineapple and grapefruit notes up front with caramel maltiness playing a equally balanced role. Bready notes and a mild earthy hoppiness round out the end. Clean finish, not much lingering flavors, a very solid balance between hops/malt.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel malt and citrus herbal hop aroma and flavor. Also some buttery character (stronger in aroma).

Pours a reddish gold with a minimal tan head. Aroma is citrus and berry. Incredibly dry. Nice finish. Salty instead of malty followed by fruity citrus notes. Clean.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great citrus scent and taste in this, which is one of my favorite qualities in a beer. More tangerine than anything, but also orange, kumquat. Bright juicy taste, not overly sweet but not bitter, either. Very drinkable while maintaining complexity. Great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear copper-amber with nearly no head at all. Very little lacing around the edges of the glass. The bouquet is characterized by sweet lemon, almost Pledge-like. There’s a mild sting in the nasal passages that has a piggybacking aroma that is difficult to distinguish. A very nice, pleasing, balanced mouthfeel. Beef jerky and buttermilk flavors compete with a little tart citrus. Not a magnificent beer, but certainly a better effort than their lifeless hefeweizen.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Has a fruity almost sweet aroma that transfers as to how it tastes! Can taste and smell the caramel. Pours a nice amber color with normal head. Crisp, clean...will drink again.
