This one is very... um... let's say "organic" tasting. Moreso thsn any of their other brews.

A: Pours an amber color with a tiny head that fades to nothing

S: Get some fruity notes that mix decently well with lightly sweet wheat and barley malts, along with a cereal graininess. Very straight-forward and simple

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a sweet cereal/malty sweetness along with a moderate fruitiness. Goes into some of the wheat notes before finishing with lingering cereal notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very straight-forward and simples brew that is fairly decent. Extremely easy to drink (like most of Uinta's non-crooked line brews) and could be easily sessioned. Nice for a "break" beer every once in a while

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet, some spices are apparent. Taste is of mild lemons, some spices, a bit of wheat, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

a: bright red-gold with minimal head.

s: yeast! And a little fruity hoppiness, but mostly yeast.

t: yeasty, toasty and mild. They say beer is like bread that you can drink. Now I believe it.

m: sparkly.

o: I like this! It's complex enough to be interesting without being overbearing and pretentious. It's just a nice, smooth, beery-bready-flavoured beer. This is going on the "classier-than-usual summer evening quaff" list.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on April 20, 2014.

It looks very nice with its medium amber, mahogany color and long lasting off-white head. I love beers that look this way.

But after that it becomes pretty routine. Aroma of caramel malts, toasted biscuit, and clean and crisp finish

Light to medium body.

The flavor has an expected sweet toasted malty character. I'm not sure if that could change. But it does not overwhelm. Yet it is also nothing extraordinary.

Pretty straightforward pale ale taste with its biscuit malts, clean, hop balance and sweetness. Nothing that sets it above the fold. Drinkable for sure.

I wasn't so sure about having Hazel at first, but upon further reading, I decided to give it a shot.

Serving Type: Straight out of the bottle

Appearance: Didn't really see due to drinking out of the bottle, although I'm sure it would've looked really good.

Smell: Scent of Citrus and Wheat bear strongly and come forth. Really good scents in my opinion, and it also tells me this is going to be an interesting brew.

Taste: When I first drank it, I detected an orange-lemon taste. Second drink, the wheat comes forth, giving it the taste of Wheat Thins. All throughout the duration of drinking, it becomes clear that this is what a Citrus Wheat Thin would taste like. The flavor is consistent all the way through the brew 'til the end.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, the hops are very balanced. It's not too smooth, but not really rough at all either. Very pleasant feel to it.

Overall: It's an extremely good beer. This could be a drink-straight or drink-pair brew. Either way it could go. If pairing with food, I would recommend a wheat-bun burger to go with it, and have a mildly spicy sauce on it. Flavors really open up with that pairing.
