Poured into a pint glass. Bottle.

3.75 A: Well hazed yellow-orange-brown color. Two and a half fingers of frothy foamy off-white head. Retention is good and lots of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Big floral, piney hops with grapefruit and a touch of generic underneath. Neutral wheat maltiness. Definitely a hop forward brew we have here.

3.25 T: Again hop forward, but with a low bitterness. Floral hop flavor dominates with just a touch of pine, earth, and grapefruit underneath. Yeasty breadiness.

3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and a touch chewy. Good enough here.

3.25 D: Fairly standard hop forward APWA. Nice drink, but nothing special.

A decent, light wheat. ABV is 5.70%. It is a strong wheat as far as abv, but is not as flavorful as other wheats I have had. Overall, a nice tannish-orange color and great head. Flavor has some subtle citrus but not as much wheat flavor as I would expect. Overall, a mild, very very drinkable beer

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

An absolutely unique and remarkable color for a wheat ale. Makes a classic foamy white German style Hefeweizen like head, thick and fluffy and even pin head bubbled. The body color is just like the label. Brass orange and deep crystal clarity with rocking long rising carbonation. As the head settles a perfect foamy ball appears with thick icing and lacing. This sucker wont quit. Throwing in the last of the sediment we return to a bit more of course opaque and classic looking wheat. Gorgeous looking beer.

What an enjoyable nose on this beer. Soft apricot like fruit and juicy orange. Nice chewy malt sensing body and very clean. Feels ready to dive in.

Palate hits with a bit of neutral, safe, and somewhat unexpected average ability. Matching senses on the nose come down quite subdued, and a little runny. Chalky orange taste, and some flat watery hop finish. Real dry aftertaste and strangely citrus parching. Mineraly tang like finish a bit, and some floral notes to go with it. Really missing some chewy wheat depth here unfortunately.

With all this great senses before hand the beer feels like it's going to be something great. But in the end it all comes up to being a bit better than average. It is however, a gorgeous looking and smelling brew, and I am still blown away by how much this brewery does so many different styles so uniquely and real well.
