Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Hazy yellow with a white head. Nice aroma of wheat, coriander and floral and citric hops. Flavor starts a bit sweetish, wheaty, somewhat spicy, lemony and a bit tart, continues with pleasant citric hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. A very nice summer beer.

Pours like a wheat beer - big white head, but a clear straw body. Aroma of pepper and clove, lemon, grapefruit soda. Nice for a wheat beer. Taste of lemon, wheat, yeast, some bitterness, grapefruit rind. Light body. Palate lemony and refreshing. Good hot-day seasonal. dmac (6264) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Poured an ugly mostly clear piss yellow with a slight greenish tint and a small foamy bright white head. Aroma of wheat, grapes, grains and honey topped bread. Medium body with average carbonation and a lightly dry finish with an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor is slightly better then the aroma, notes of grass, dry bread, wheat, corn husks. Meh, nothing special here. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle [12oz] . Pours a hazy yellow-gold with lots of tiny sediment and an average size frothy semi-lasting off-white head. Aroma of wheat, fruit, light floral hops and yeast. Flavour follows with wheat, fruit (citrus and more), light floral hops and light spices. Average bodied. An enjoyable summer beer.

Draft at Manchester Pub. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with notes of spice (clove and coriander), banana and yeast. Taste has slight spice and wheat notes and a slightly sweet, smooth finish. A bit on the watery side but not bad.

Aroma: Basically, it is what you’d expect from a "hoppy wheat": wheat, pine, lemon, and spice
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden-orange color with a thin white head and light lace
Flavor: Tastes sweet/spicy up-front, with a middle bitterness, and a thin flavor on the finish
Palate: Fairly light bodied, with fizzy carb, and an abrupt finish that give it an extremely short duration
For some reason this beers falls off really fast. It barely stays on the tongue long enough to say it has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Really, it just had a beginning and a middle, and then disappears right before the end. Honestly, I kind of like what they did here, but the way it completely falls off the cliff in the middle palate is weird, and keeps it from being a better beer.
12 oz bottle courtesy of BlackIPA. Thanks, Shawn. Pours a more hazy golden applesauce hue. Natural glow, a bit dulled with some gold, orange, and yellow. A cakey bright white head atop stays a firm size, laces ok overall. Dulled, a mellow carbonation. Aromas are wheaty malts, bread, soapy and earthy hops with a bit of floral, gentle lemon. Faint grapefruit rind, stronger lemon, good florals. Nice hop profile, gentle bread yeast, dough, and straw. Pretty solid hopping on the nose. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some bready malts, citrus fruuit shows some tart citrus, lemon and grapefruit juice. Straw, grainy elements. Some soap, fruit into the middle. Bready and grainy. As we settle in the hops get a bit more gentle. Bitter florals, grass, some fruity hops, lemon. Touch of yeast, bready and flaked wheat malts, straw and some graininess. Some gentle citrusy grapefruit, dryness, and fruit. A bit of bitterness, dry finish. A bit mellow in flavor. A pretty beer, a decent nose especially on pour. Solid summery wheat with some American hop fruity citrus kick. Solid. Liquid Gold, probably a better beer overall, but I think I’d rather drink this.. Especially fresh.

This was beer number two of my NYC trip. I try not to be in the habit of reviewing RateBeer prior to ordering. I think I was a bit infatuated with the idea of ordering my first Captain Lawrence when I decided on this beer. In retrospect, I should have had our very knowledgeable server make a suggestion. Poured very light, almost lager-like. The citrus flavor was very faint. I enjoy the combination of low ABV and great taste that can be found in wheat ales. Unfortunately this beer skimped on the flavor. Draft - The Blind Tiger - New York, NY jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 11, 2013
On tap in a weizen glass. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of wheat and pale malts plus a decent amount of floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend and a lot of hops for the style. Average texture. A good wheat ale. Johnsense (1676) - - APR 27, 2013
Hazy gold pour, small ring of head. Aroma somewhat subdued with citrus fruit, yeast, wheat, somewhat bready. Wheat followed by lemon bitterness. Grassy, lighter spices but the hops keep taking over as i dig for more complexity. Drank nicely on a very warm afternoon. Lighter bodied.
