look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - A cloudy orange/yellow color with a minimal head

S - Subtle grapefruit and hoppy

T - Fuller bodied than expected, get the grapefruit citrus up front and the hoppy finish. Surprisingly good body and taste for a wheat.

M - The body adds to the mouthfeel.

O - Excellent beer. Better than anticipated.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. A new beer to me from Breckenridge, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store. Expectations are moderate, based on the style and the brewery.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with some orange hues when in the glass. Less than a finger of bubbly white head fades to a ring quickly. Looks good for what it is.

S - Smell is grainy, earthy, grassy, fruity, and floral. Piney hoppiness, crisp golden wheat, honeyed graham cracker, & some breadiness. Has that lightly sour / cheesy pungent aroma that I associate with some Berliner Weissbiers also.

T - Taste follows the nose - lightly earthy, grassy, floral. Some orange / lemon zest. Dry grainy wheat. Hint of honeyed sweetness.

M - Crisp and clean, finishes lightly sticky with mild hop bitterness / resin clinging to the palate. Medium bodied with decent carbonation, if maybe just a tad bloating. Slightly dry.

Overall, an alright offering from Breckenridge; it was about what I expected it to be, though I did enjoy it more than I expected. Mostly just a regular wheat beer with just a touch more hops. A pleasant, enjoyable beer. I would probably have it again.

Breckenridge Ophelia ---3.5/5
