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.

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.

This brings to mind one of my silly-vilian stuporvisors on the Self Defense Test Ship who used to lust after a co-worker named Ophelia. He would emit a wolf whistle and say, "Oh, Ophelia, I wanna feel ya!" It was a different time.

From the bottle: "Hoppy Bouquet Wheat Flavor"; plus the lovely russet-haired Ophelia reclining in a bed of flowers.

I was gentle with Ophelia, but still she was anxious to give me head. My pour netted just over two fingers of dense, tawny head with great retention in the face of today's humidity. Color was a cloudy orangish-yellow (SRM = > 5, < 7), kind of like freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice. Ophelia smelled wonderful, citrusy but not bitter and with a slight sweetness. I was reminded of tangerines or orange zest. Mouthfeel was a little thin, but the taste was very nice. It had a semi-sweet orange tang along with a wheat tartness that was really refreshing. Finish was semi-dry, more citrus than wheat and a really nice drink on a hot, humid day. Please put this in CANs!
