22 oz. bottle shared with the local crew. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is herbal, floral, yeast, banana esters with some pale malts. This opens with good flavor; herbal notes, floral, slight fruity/banana,grassy with some moderate bitterness. This softens up toward the finish. Interesting shot at a hoppy hefe.

22 ounce bottle that poured a dark cloudy orange color, aromas of grapefruit juice, clove, citrus, and some yeast. Flavors of bitter grapefruit, sweet malt, clove, and some wheat. Interesting beer.

The aroma is nice with malt, bourdon barrel, hops, and fruit. The appearance is golden with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a neat beer.

a strange mixture of wheat and IPA. the aroma is bizarre with grapefruit like aroma. the taste is more hoppy than the German banana nose that is expected. still as a mixture it is not bad, but it lacks something

Reviewed June 2011 - Up front there are some banana and cloves. There’s the German wheat beer coming through. Then come the hops. Citrus and grapefruit. Instead of working together nicely I felt like the ingredients clashed a bit. Not a horrible beer at all. Just not something I would drink again.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of light wheat and citrus with backing light fruit. Flavor has a nice combo of wheat and citrus with a backing sweet fruit note.

Bottle poured into glass. Dark golden color a thin off white head. Aroma has hints of light honey wheat and sweet malt. Flavor is a little bitter with a sweet malt finish.

Wish that I had tried this a little more fresh. I probably would have had a higher opinion. Certainly pours like an IPA. Amber orange in color. Smells like a blend of a wheat beer and a IPA. Certainly has the esters of wheat. Notes of banana bread and spices. Some hops are certainly present but they don’t seem very fresh. Also some caremel and sweet candy aromas. Tastes like a wheat IPA. They certainly named the beer right. Good but not great. Needs mroe hopppy goodness.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2011
THOUGHTS: Huh? it was really like someone poured an IPA into a wheat beer. Very citric. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, murky, medium copper with an average to large, off-white head that slowly diminished leaving good lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel and wheat; moderate to heavy grapefruit and orange hops; light yeast; lemon and more orange. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, slightly sour and lightly bitter; while the finish was light to moderately sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic and sour. There was citrus hops, citrus from wheat, grapefruit, orange, lemon, wheat, caramel, and yeast. The light to medium body was oily, a little syrupy and then a little dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.
