Sample at KC Hopfest 2011. Pours a cloudy pale yellow. Has an almost white appearance. Aroma of citrus and grass. Flavor is citrus, lemon, grass, wheat. Very easy drinking. Has the hoppy, citrus, aromas without the heavy bitterness. Quite good. vyvvy (6943) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Sampled at St. Louis Microfest 2011 - big thanks to Boulevard for bring this rarity to our fest. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma has lemony hoppiness, orange, must and wheat. Medium body (fairly full for the style) with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with spicy and lemony hoppiness, fullness from either yeast or wheat, clear american wheat and some orange. The finish is very spicy and clean. Nicely done. Wish I could get this on a more regular basis. beastiefan2k (4230) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Keg at KCBM 2011 competition. Hoppy for sure, this is all hops with a week backbone. It came off too astringent for my taste. The hops turned into a cleaning product instead. I like the idea, but I would like to get something from the base wheat beer. 7/3/6/3/14.phaleslu (10957) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Oh, this needs a re-rate. The bottled product is much better. Damn great hop mix with a subtle background of light wheat beer.
Draft sample in the VIP tent at St. Louis Microfest 2011. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a fairly small bone white head that settles into a ring. Aroma of lemon citrus, floral hops, wheat, sweet and pale malts, light tropical fruits, and even a little grapefruit peel. Flavor of floral hops, lemon and grapefruit citrus, pineapple, sweet malts, banana, wheat, and a little bit of a clove-coriander spice. The hops emerge a bit more in the flavor than in the nose. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy mouthfeel. Not amped-up to quite the level of hoppiness in some other hoppy wheat ales (Gumballhead, Burn Ward Wheat, Wheat Freak), but definitely smoother than those. Really nice variation of a style they’re known for.
