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!
