3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light orange/yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malt, sweet honey and malt, a touch of citrus and light fruits. Flavor is sweet with just a slight honey tang initially with a bready, crisp finish. Just a hint of cinnamon and perhaps chamomile. Light, complex for a wheat ale, and quite tasty. This was a pleasant surprise, but then again I have really been enjoying Wolavers beers of late.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy dark honey with overpowering head and no lace. Starts with a nice honey wheat malt with a sweet floral overtone, but doesn’t finish well, subsitituting carbonation for the floral hops that would be so appropriate. It might still have worked, but for the bloating fill that comes at the end. An interesting brew, but not well balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle–trade with jtclockwork-pours an offwhite head with yellow/gold color. Aroma is floral, cinnamon, honey-light malt. Taste is floral hops, cinnamon/apple, chamomile, honey-light malt/cereal. Like Apple Jacks. The bottom 1/3 cloudy, guess it should have all been poured at once.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy golden. Hard pour produces a large fluffy head. Leaves some cool lacing. Aroma is honey, sweet malt, candy. Flavor is out of balance, and doesn’t fit the style. Cloyingly sweet, lacks complexity. No spice, banana, wheat creaminess. Simple and not good.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden coloured body with a frothy large slightly off-white head. Aroma of very strong honey and floral notes with a lot of perfumey and bright scents - nice and potent. Medium-bodied; Assertive honey sweetness up front dies out relatively quickly with a more herbal and floral blandness and cardboard type taste right afterwards- no depth, no body and no complexity. Aftertaste shows a lot of flowers and some honey with almost nothing else coming through aside from a touch of citrus. Overall, a nice smelling and perfumey beer, but aside from that - there isn’t much going on here at all...perhaps nice on a very hot day when the beer is relatively cold, but anytime else, it’s kind of a let-down. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-July-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 20-September-2011.

On tap at McGregor’s - this is one of the best wheat’s I’ve had, American style. Clear gold, mild lacing. Nose is a touch fruity with the doughy notes. Sweet tingly mouthfeel. I thought it was cinnamon palate but I imagine it was the chamomile. Very well integrated.
