A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium straw yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy white head that reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat, bready malts, citrus/orange rind, and hints of spicy hops.

T: Moderate flavors of slightly sweet wheat with a touch of tartness to it along with a light to moderate flavor of bready malts. There is a light amount of citrus/orange rind bitterness and just a hint of spicy hops. Overall, light amounts of bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: This is easy enough to drink and refreshing but not great - there is something that is slightly out of harmony in the flavor of this beer which does not make me want to have a second one.

The only headache-inducing beer I've had in the triangle area, and I've had most of them. When I had a sip, it had a slight chemical taste, but I ended up having another 1.5 after that one, because it wasn't terrible. Had plenty of water and still woke up with a light hangover at 5am. No thanks. Doesn't taste bad overall, but whatever is in it, it lives up to the name.

Poured on-tap at the Tap House and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, gold coloring with a tall, light, frothy white head. Nose of butter and toffee, with a subtle toasted grain backbone. Flavors of buttered bread and toasted grains, with an overall rich and sweet character. Smooth, thick bodied for the style. Sweet and rich aftertaste, with a slick, smooth finish. Missed the boat on the style here.

I drank this at a halfway decent Tex-Mex restaurant at Cameron Village in Raleigh.

First impression: I immediately regretted ordering it. The first sip was like no other beer I've had before. Sour, but not necessarily bad tasting, just a bad first impression because this beer is so unique.
About halfway through my meal (I was eating a somewhat spicy Chimichanga) the taste became amazing. It's an acquired taste that can be appreciated halfway through a pint glass.

There was a lacing on the glass from top to bottom when I was finished. Like no other wheat beer I've had. Would recommend, would order again. Don't let the unique smell and taste scare you off!
