Poured from the bottle into a laser-etched Sam Adams glass.
Review from notes 3/1/2014.

A: Hazy gold with floating particles visible. Thin white head.

S: Hoppy nose, I'm anticipating bold pine needles and citrus flavor.

T: Inoffensive hops, just the way I like them.

M: Medium body. Low carbonation.

O: Not a bad choice. I was intrigued by the cool label. If you're looking for a little hop bite, this is a good one.

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
