Brought home in a suitcase from Alburquerque. Poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy orange. Not much head (of course that may be from the jarring in the suitcase). Some bubbles and light lacing.

S: A pleasant wheat and cirtus blend with notes of honey.

T: Follows nose with an orange and coriander medley. Wheat, lemons, honey. Floral

M: Light with low carbonation (once again, the jarring may have affected this).

O: Not bad, very sessionable. Smooth, light and satisfying.

Big white head dies into a decent lacing above a slightly cloudy honey golden colored beer.

Lemony citrus, yeasts, and light grains divide the aroma quite nicely.

Citrus (lemony) and grassy style hops, grain malts, and some honey in the taste.

A slightly dry aftertaste with a bit of the lemony citrus tastes hanging around on this light bodied wheat beer.

Wow, I'm not a wheat beer drinker by definition but I think I could drink this stuff in quantity.

poured from the bottle into a weizen glass

A - Pours a slightly hazy blonde with ample carbonation rising to the one-finger white head. Head is gone relatively quickly, leaves behind only a few small spots of lacing.

S - A fair amount of wheat malt with dandelion and just a hint of honey. Reminds me of the alpine wildflower fields in Montana, very good.

T - Light wheat malt upfront. The body is an excellent balance of wheat malt and zesty lemony hop notes with hints of wildflower and honey to add complexity. Refreshing and slightly tangy lemon, honey, and wheat malt finish.

M - Light bodied and highly carbonated, this beer expands to fill the entire mouth with lemon-honey goodness. Could stand to be a tad thicker.

What I night and day difference this "floral" brew has with the one I sample a few days ago (St. Lupulin). Unlike that beer, everything fit together great to create a fresh and exciting brew. The wildflower and honey notes were not overwhelming and added complexity to the beer. I have yet to have a Marble selection that I haven't loved. Definitely deserves a permanent spot in my fridge in the summer to beat the 100 degree heat like we had today.

a very very refreshing wheat beer. pours a little cloudy straw color with a nearly 2 inch white head. smells like pale malts, delicate floral yeast, and honey. flavor is very well balanced with the wheat taking the primary role and some bittering hops and flowery honey notes backing it up. the mouthfeel is excellent, very bubbly and light on the body, but not too too light. this is an excellent refresher when served ice cold, and a beer i will certainly buy again. it has everything you need from a wheat beer. i continue to be impressed with marble brews.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a hazy goldenrod with a frothy white head that leaves some dots behind

Smell: Wheat bread, honey, a whiff of banana and a hint of lemony tartness

Taste: Bready, up front, with a building slightly sweet honey character; by mid-palate, the lemony tartness causes a puckering sensation that lingers into the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Refreshing but a bit strange, with the tartness taking the beer in a surprising but not altogether pleasant direction

Thanks, sunkistxsudafed, for the opportunity

12oz bottle stamped 11 (10?) 11 poured into a Shock Top weizen glass.

Appearance - Hazy pale yellow body, like a witbier. Small white head withi low retention and patchy stick.

Smell - Honey. Hay and grass. Maybe even coriander? Floral. Light and refreshing.

Taste - Light. Honey. Grassy hop. Floral. Reminiscent of spring. Noticeable but balanced alcohol.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied. Some effervescence. Clean finish other than some pollen like aftertaste.

Overall Drinkability - Light, refreshing, balanced. No major flaws.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with a tiny head and poor retention.

Smells is lemony and grassy. Also a slightly musty smell.

The taste is fairly muted all around. A little bit of grass and lemon but nothing really stands out to me. Decent prickly carbonation.

This is by far my least favorite beer from Marble. All their other offerings have greatly impressed me but this seemed to be a bit of a letdown. Just not much going on here.
