2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
650 ml. bottle. Pours an almost non existent fizzy, head, over a clear dark gold (SRM 6) body....nose is cinnamon, apple, lemon peel, grape, cheap perfume....taste is sweet sugar, grape, lemon, light cinnamon, finishing with a light soapy perfume....mouth feel thick, sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This is a very different brew. It is partly apple cider, partly sweet soda, with a touch of Grandma’s perfume, and almost makes it to a real beer qualia. But the very heavy sticky, grape/sugar dominates completely. It is an interesting experiment that really didn’t work for me and is reminiscent of some of Brewdogs experiments with I/DIPA’s aged in a Scotch barrel. But if they don’t try, they can’t get to real brilliance. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6

I had this on draft at Out of the Park Pizza in Anaheim Hills, CA. This wheat beer has a nice lemon flavor and would make it a good refreshing drink on a hot day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Café Amsterdam. Clear yellow/orange with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is lots of artificial lemon with some fruity wheat and light mustiness. Flavor is lightly tart with some citrus peel bitterness and sugary sweetness. Light body with average carbonation. Decent but couldn’t drink too much of this.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange-y yellow color. Aroma has no punch especially when you get that first sip that is a big hit of grape followed by notes of citrus and the spice side-effect of the lemongrass. It is growing on me. Probably better really cold.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Alexandria. Pours orange with a white head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma of wheat malts and white wine. Medium bodied with a slight syrupy texture. Flavor of pale wheat malts with moderate notes of chardonnay and lemon grass. Tamed herbal bitterness. Not bad, but I would love to get more lemongrass, and perhaps less body and more dryness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
650 ml bottle had in Germany with very much thanks to Travlr for taking his time to bring this all the way from America. Pours cloudy yellow to orange with a very small off-white head. Aroma is a fine mild citrus and wheat maltiness. A very estery fruit and strong citrus flavor. Mellow yeasty and light citric. Bitter and mellow estery palate. A srange beer with a lot of added flavor. This really shoud be a fruit beer.
