Bottle - big pillowy foamy head, mildly hazy light gold color, fair citrus and earthy hop aroma and flavor, good wheat backbone, not bad overall

on tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - pale golden color. Typical wheat ale in both flavor and aroma. Decent session beer. NikkTwist (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle at National Mechanics. Mostly clear orange gold pour. Clean sharp hops. Orange pith. Lemon zest. Toasted malts. Buttery croissants. Grapefruit mech. Good stuff. DrnkMcDermott (3100) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2016
Notes from July. The bottle pours a big fluffy hefeweizen head. From that head, my nose picks up the spiciness of wheat malt and some mostly bitter American hops, with perhaps just a hint of mango in the nose.
The taste starts with a bit of lemon or other citrus. Not a lot of exotic hop character flavor, but certainly some bitterness lingers in the back of my palate. Haziness in the glass is indeed close to a hefeweizen, but is none of the bubblegum or other esters.
This is a well-balanced beer that may not be a mouth burning hop bomb. Put it on the American Wheat spectrum between Goose Island 312 and Three Floyds’ Gumballhead. I think it would pair well with any main course, but I’m mainly thinking of baked fish. Its 4.6% abc won’t overwhelm your ability to enjoy food, but its hop bitterness with add some zest to a pale white meat, or a creamy cheese.

Poured a 12oz shortneck brown bottle into an IPA glass, somewhat hazy golden amber colour with sudsy off-white foam and lace. Soft bready grainbill, mellow, well-rounded mouthfeel, neutral American ale yeast traits (no hefeweizen banana, clove, black pepper), moderate bitterness, grapefruity and resiny hop flavours. Well-crafted and easy-drinking. A good example of this modern style, I can see why it won a GABF medal, but nothing outstanding about it in the absolute sense. Tasty, recommended.

Cloudy golden yellow pour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity hops. Taste is a malty backbone with a light fruit profile. acing begins from the start .I tasted more wheat than I did the hops. wlajwl (6812) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 20, 2016
Aroma is citrus, wheat/mild spices and hops. The flavor is hops/hop resin, mild spices, tropical fruit, citrus and a mix of bitter and slight heat in the finish

This kind of veers into session IPA territory--and it’s good. It’s slightly cloudy orange w/ a thick head of foam. It’s nose is big and peachy, lots of fresh fruity hops w/ a hint of lavender. This is medium bodied cut by brisk carbonation. It finishes w/ mild bitterness w/ some lingering floral and mineral notes. This is really easy drinking w/ tons of great hop character. There is not much not to like. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 15, 2015
A very hoppy wheat. The wheatiness, actually, is a bit lost making it seem a bit like a mellow, smooth IPA. Pleasant nevertheless.
