12 oz. bottle poured into a Weizen glass. Hazy pale gold with a finger of frothy white head. Moderate retention and a bit of lacing.

Aroma is very grainy cracked wheat bread. Slightly doughy yeast, but no esters or phenols. Citrus and other tropical fruity hoppiness.

Flavor definitely has a lot of grain in it, but more hop-forward as well. Apricot, orange, and grapefruit. The recipe says Mosaic and palisade and that's not a surprise. Very juicy, but otherwise pretty simple. Subtle wheaty spiciness, but no yeasty phenols.

Flavor is light-medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Very refreshing.

Overall, I don't really like what's going on here. It's a pretty standard, bland, boring American Wheat Ale with a generous amount of hops thrown in. Very juicy, but boring. Mosaic are the cool new thing, but you need a good beer behind it as well. Not bad, just not good.

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.

Poured into a standard pint glass. Head is bright white and leaves a ring. Body color is copper and dense looking, opaque - good wheat beer appearance.

Aroma is definitely hop forward: grapefruit and lemon are prominent. Some lighter malt notes, touch of biscuit.

Taste is very good: clean malt flavors, not sweet, wheat and biscuit are noticeable; hops are fresh, bitter, flavoring is citrus and some grass.

Mouthfeel is pretty bitter for lighter ale, very strong not the tongue, and drying.

Overall, a solid hoppy wheat ale that is bitter and slightly biting in the mouthfeel, but good flavors.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with short head that slowly fades.

S: Aromas of lemon, grass, bread and a some fruitty esthers.

T: Taste is a mix of spice, grass, orange peel, biscuity/bready notes, hints of grain.

M: Light to medium body with adequate carbonation and is mildly spicy, dry, with aslightly bitter finish.

O: Overall a decent hoppy wheat but I think I was hopping for a little more from the mosaic hops in this one. But to be fair I will have it again on a hot sunny day.
