3.27/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle, month past the freshness date

look is a very pale yellow, cloudy, almost no head after 5min. smell is banana, clove, pepper, the usual suspects, with a minty earthiness. taste/flavors are a little flat. not sure if it's because of the age or what.

might come back to this one at some point

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a hazy, milky gold with a fluffy, feathery white head. Head retention is quite good and there is a moderate amount of lace.

S: Aromas of green apple, unripened banana, minerals, lemon, herbs, grass, and wheat toast are present on the nose. In terms of smell, this ale is reminiscent of both a Bavarian weissbier and an American pale wheat ale.

T: Fruity notes of unripened bananas, unripened pears, and green apple are immediately evident, underscored by traces of wheat toast, minerals, lemon, lime, grass, and herbs. The finish is bready and crisp with notes of grassy, mildly citrusy hops and wheat.

M: Predictably light in body, very dry, and a bit chalky in the mouth. Carbonation is relatively crisp and intense. Very quaffable.

O: I'm not a huge fan of Boulder Beer, but this wheat ale is far from bad. Some may not like the slightly muddled character, but I kind of appreciate it. I would not go out of my way to find this again, but I wouldn't have a problem knocking back one of these if it were readily available.
