4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thistle, coriander, bubble gum, mint, lemon zest bouquet. Eclectic! Hazy golden, thick lacy head. Minty, lemongrass flavor, good intensity. Not cloying at all. Light body, soft carbonation, full flavor. Whatever this minty hop is, I don’t usually like it. In this beer it works. This is a very nicely crafted beer, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Nailed it!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Apt description from the brewer. Looks, tastes and smells like an American wheat, save for an assertive citric hop presence. Pleasantly blended merger of styles, ultimately very light, fruity and drinkable. Should be a crowd pleaser. (#5455, 3/9/2014)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy yellow with a pile of foamy head that fades quickly and leaves no lace to speak of. The aroma is like a spicy hefeweizen with some lemon zest and floral hops. And the flavor is just fine. Slightly sweet and wheaty with a bitter, grapefruit and grassy hops finish. This is nice. I’ll buy it again.

Hazy yellow pour with a small head. The nose is sort of soapy, lemon cake, some herbal hops. Taste is lemon, herbal funk. Moderately bitter finish. Bit of dish soap brings it down.

Soft citrusy and floral hop aromas. Hazy yellow-orange with a lasting white head. Dry, snappy, and floral, very balanced. Light bodied and very refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy vibrant lemon yellow color with a thin frothy off-white head. Average head retention. Aroma of acrid wheat, faint sweetness, clay and a bitter hop finish. The taste is dry wheat with bitter earthy and herbal hops. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness and off balance towards the hops.
