Ophelia is pale yellow, cloudy with a smallish white head that's a bit loosely constructed but holds a tight foam. Patching seems to offer a bit more than I would have expected.
The smell is somewhat dusty with a lemony twang. It's somewhat more than moderately hoppy, particularly for the style, with a crackery wheat note on the malty side. After the lemon come out some softer, sweeter and less tangy fruit notes.
The body is medium, pretty hefty for what's typical, and semi-dry all the way as hops and tangy, acidic lemon balance in the feel with the sweetness. It's crisp to the point of being sharp, and carbonation offers a soft smoothness as well.

I am a fan of the Ophelia...certainly can compete with Blvd 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat. The beer poured a hazy unfiltered yellow with virtually no head and no lace. The smell was a good mix of citrus hops and wheat. The taste was a very good balance of bready malt and citrus hops. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a great beer and would certainly try it again.

Pours a super effervescent/hazed straw color with 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Near perfect lacing & head retention
S: Wheattyness & grass
T: Follows the nose, a bit of lemon as well, some tartness & peppery notes up front. More grassiness, tartness & lemon zest as this warms, plus dryness & a bit of green apples. Finishes tart with green apples & lemon zest
MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation,
Drinks very easy, didn't really push the hops forward, but this would a nice summer time beer around here

Sometimes you come across a beer that is so simple that it is difficult to come up with 250 characters to complete a review. This is one of those beers. That doesn't mean I didn't like it, in fact I did, it simply is hard to write much. The nose and flavor are light piney hops coupled with a light wheat malt. Pure, easy, simple but a nice drinking beer.

A: Bright nectarine orange coloring with a dense clarity and a good suspension of yeasty matter. Dirty white head is thin and skimmy, average in retention, with minimal lace dressing.
S: Aroma of fresh lemon-lime flower hops, dried orange peel and wheat. Hopping is average at best, as well the strength and complexity. Expected a bit more ummph from a beer called a hoppy wheat.
T: Flavor was tart orange, lemon and flower hops. Herbal orange, wheat and floral notes with a mild bittering finish. Lemon-straw, light dry grapefruit with some semi-dry tropical orange at the finish.
M: creamy, moderate snap of carbonation with a flowery edginess. Dry wheat finish.
O: Overall moderate hoppiness, mildly entertaining, but not enough to really hold your attention. Decent, but forgetable.
