locarboy (129) - USA - JAN 20, 2013
From a 22oz. bottle marked batch #1 purchased a Genes Sausage Shop in Chicago for $7.99. Into a Duval tulip glass it pours medium golden orange with a slight haze and a 3/4 tight white head that disappears to a thin film. Aroma and taste of alcohol. Bitterness along back and sides of tongue and soft palate. Long aftertaste with heat from the alcohol. A full bodied wheat ale. A hoppy wheat ale with a malt backbone without the ubiquitous citra/amarillo grapefruit hop flavor.

Aroma is wheat, caramel and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is wheat, caramel, mild hops/citrus and a slightly spicy/sweetish finish.

ARH (1124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2016
On tap, poured into a snifter. The aroma is moderately intense, and straightforward with notes of juicy citrus and grains. It pours slightly hazy with an orange hue and a light effervescence. This is topped by a soft, well retained, fluffy cream head that leaves a good amount of lace. The taste is a citrusy medium sweet and complimentary, medium light bitter. The light bodied beer is slick with creamy carbonation. The flavor profile is citrus juice and peaches with a mild herb or grain quality that finishes zesty with bitter citrus. An astringent character lingers with a mild bread crust flavor late.

sawbuck (721) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Nice aroma of slight banana, some gum, some spices, and bread. Orange color with a white head. Rich sweetness up front. Spicy sweet. NIce mix of banana, peppery spice, cinnamon, and some bitter earthy hops. Bitterness intensifies on the finish and is a long linger afterward. A bit too much. Slightly watery mouth feel. Starts off nice....but bitterness is too much on the end.

Poured from the bottle of a six pack, cloudy orange with the dark tornado. This beer is dry, gritty, and drinkable, and higher alcohol than most wheat beers.

On tap at the brewery. Pours an almost clear orange amber with a thin white head. Soft floral notes with citrus and honeyed malt on the nose, cool and catty. Medium bodied, tropical fruit, papaya, mango, soft malt and citrus. Slow spicy finish with a lot of earthy hops and a hint of resinous hop juice.

scarletfire65 (1445) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma is floral hops, apple, brown sugar. A fairly typical APA, heavy sweet malt underneath, nice and bitter up front. Smooth, wheatty palate, not much hint of wheat other than that. Fruity hoppy finish with noticeable alcohol.

DrnkMcDermott (3075) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Single bottle from Binnys, bought Jan 14. Big spongy, lacy head puffs up over a golden beer with just a few bubbles. Light, pleasant hop dominates the nose. Taste is a basic pale ale with American bittering hops. Malt is slightly thick, enough to coat the lips. I try to pick up the wheat malt, but the hops are enough to knock it out. This is one of Begyles more accessible beers, though, available in multi-pack 12 oz. bottles.
