COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A double wheat ale. Don’t let this one cloud your thoughts. It may be hard to see through, but the taste is complex, fruity and hoppy. You will be hoppy too after a sip of this 8% ABV ale.

Bomber from the Natomas BevMo. Pours hazy dirty gold with a foamy off-white head. Smells a bit corny with underlying honey sweetness. Near medium body; frothy carb. Flavor is like light stone fruit, with some breadiness, and a touch of hop bitter. Maybe more than a touch. Could be citrus. Drinkable.

Bomber poured a cloudy tarnished gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, citrus and light banana. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, yeast and citrus with a crisp finish.

"Hmmm... Intersting sweetness and a good sturdy body. Too much cereal, but also a nice fruitiness. The good and bad kinda cancel each other out, making beer that ends up average at best. "

Bottle from BevMo Arden. Pours hazy golden with a decent off-white head and a stale wheat aroma. There is a dry wheat flavor with some residual sourness and a bitter finish.

22oz bomber pours opaque copper to brown grapefruit juice with off white head. The modest aroma offers up citrus cotton candy and some rauch like maltiness. The taste is pretty smooth and not overly sweet per the double wheat typical flavor profile. I get some slightly tart, slightly sour citrus followed by sugary citrus cotton candy and some rauch malts. This is an interesting experience as these seemingly at odd notes come together with pleasing harmony.

Sent in a trade from Hayduke with whom it was shared via Facebook chat. The first pour was very clear copper golden but the following was quite cloudy. Fortunately i was able to mix them. A nice thick light golden head that never left and had light lacing. A wheat ale is almost always too sour for me and this was no exception. There was complex citrus and even some passion fruit along with some caramel and a bit of bread. The sourness overwhelmed subtleties.

Bottle from snojerk321. Thanks dude. Interesting nose of wheat, light dank, grass, and smoke? Weird. Pours somewhat hazy gold, not much head or lace. The flavor is wheat malt, light lemon, dank, grass, and more dust/smoke... Odd. Not bad, not good, kind of it is what it is.

I shared this one with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This beer poured a golden color with some ruby highlights and a big creamy gold head. The nose was a sour smell that reminded me of rotting fruit. The body was light to medium and the mouthfeel a bit acrid The flavor showed some malts and some fruit, but the sourness dominated. Not a nice sourness unfortunately. i approach every new beer with high hopes, but was disappointed in this one. The last of the glass went down the drain.
