On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a wave of fruity esters (grape bubble gum) and s grassy hop.

The taste consisted a spicy and earthy lemon, with a grassy hop spice and zesty wheat malt.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a residual spice.

Overall an interesting and very tasty ale.

Poured from growler purchased at DeCicco's Brewster into a pint glass. Pours a golden clear with thick head. Great cotton candy hop aroma with slight citrus notes. Really nice wheaty hop flavor; slight lemon flavor but it is there. The hoppy wheat flavor is really great, mild, and flavorful. Overall, a great session brew with a lot of flavor.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color. It poured with a thin white head that died down and left just a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of citrus in the nose—lemons seem to stand out the most.
T: Like the smell, the taste has citrusy flavors of hops. The lemons aren’t quite as prominent as they are in the smell, but seem to stand out in front of orange and other citrusy flavors. No wheat flavors are noticeable. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is extremely flavorful for the style and is also very drinkable. It almost takes like a well-hopped citrusy IPA but without much of the bitterness.

On tap at Paradiso in DC

A - hazy deep yellow with nice head inthe 12oz pour.

S - lemons, citrus, and hops. Amazing smelling beer especially hit this category.

T - less pronounced in the taste but immensely drinkable. Wheat body carries along the hops and refreshing characteristics. Tasty.

M - light crisp and refreshing. Perfect

O - just an exceptional wheat ale. If I could find this it would be my summer beer of choice I think. I prefer this to Gumballhead.

Growler shared by Mac, thanks!

Straw-colored body & decent white head. Fresh hop aroma billows from my pint glass, imparting a cloud of juicy fruits and floral scents around the table.

As is typical of me with Single IPAs, I love the aroma more than the taste. There's definitely some wheat-infused sweetness here, though the overall flavor profile is merely decent to my taste buds. Not overly hoppy, though, and that's a good thing. Clean and refreshing; should pair well with a hot day spent outdoors.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - pours a crystal clear bright pale gold color. Huge bubbly white foam quickly dissipates . Lots of tiny bubbles plainly visible.

S - smell is muted. Sovlent/soapy notes. Grainy malt character. Second pour revels a bouqute of citrusy aromas. Lemons, limes and oranges. But still a fairly strong solvent note.

T - grainy malt sweetness up front. Hints of lemon peel follows soon after blending with the tangy flavor of wheat malt. Bitter Orange peel enters mid palate giving a balancing effect. Slight hint of solvent. Citrus notes play off one another on the back end and well past the finish.

M - on the lighter side of medium bodied. Creamy texture. Bright prickly carbonation.

O - Feel this bottle might be passed it prime. Would like to try a fresher for a fairer assesment.

Thanks to Cpabeer & StormKing47 for this one

App- A very clear yellow with a multitude of bubbles come floating up from the bottom. A 1-1/2 finger head that was pure white but more like a puck of foam. Nice sliding foam of head.

Smell- A weird mix in this one. Its very lemony with a good bit of damp grass with a unique yeasty note wofting up.

Taste- Its really starting to grow on me. Has a good flavor profile with a very similar flavor to Ithaca White Gold. Spicy, Yeasty, Lemon, Grass and Earthy. Not overly done but clean and simple

Mouth- A medium body with a high carbonation level. Very bubbly with a lemon, yeast and peppery residual flavor.

Drink- Took a while to get into this one but it finished quite well. Lemony, yeasty, wheat and clean. Enjoyed it a lot.
