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

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.

Ophelia – American Wheat (5%) - Breckenridge Brewery (Colorado)
☆☆½

App: Pours a very hazy true gold, practically opaque, with very little light passing through. Hazier than a lot of other american wheats. No head to speak of, what head it does throw settles to a filmy white sheen over the top. Some lacing.

Smell: Nose is hoppy with pine and herb hops notes dominating. Slight lemon notes from the wheat. Wheat graininess comes through slightly. Smells cheesy, and honestly a little off.

Taste: Foretaste is slightly sour, with some pleasant cereal wheatiness on the true taste. Hops go from normal to pronounced as the beer sits on the palate, and further sips are taken. Primarily citrus and pine, with some deeper herb like flavors. Not complicated or engaging really, just sort of routinely bitter. Pretty well balanced, but sort of unremarkable. Slight lingering bitterness and wheat flavors in the in aftertaste.

Mouth: Carbonation remains high after continued agitation. Body is solidly medium, but a little disappointing.

Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Tulip. 2/7/14.
