I bought this on grand opening day from a big box wine chain store. Some earthy fruit on the nose, a hint of mustiness and a shot of skunk. Pours hazy, murky straw under a ½” off-white foam cap that quickly dissipates to a thick film. I try to swirl off the skunk but it still interferes with the big fruity flavors over white wonder bread that lead to a tart finish and a suspicion of wet cardboard. Well carbonated with a very creamy medium body. My rating gives this beer the benefit of the doubt, assuming that some of the flaws in my bottle derived from mishandling. My rating gives this beer the benefit of the doubt, assuming that some of the flaws I tasted derived from mishandling by the big box retailer and not by brewing mistakes.

Boiling potatoes so I gotta make this quick.

Appearance (4.25) : Pours a hazy almost 100% opaque apricot colored body. Very pretty. On top is a two fingered head that isn't going anywhere soon. Very nice appearance.

Aroma (3.75) : Some typical pale aromas but they are not strong or overpowering. There's a little orange peel, orange flesh, lemon, wet celery, cliantro, and then the typical barley wheat malt mixture. Bouquet is medium strength.

Taste (4) : Refreshing and yummy. Full on wheat, a pinch of orange, and a minor hop bite at the end. Finishes with a bit of rolled wheat and hop. It's very flavorful. Pleasantly surprised.

Mouthfeel (3.75) : Rich and creamy, almost wit territory. Ends snappy and sharp with a pinch of dry. Light to medium bodied.

Overall (3.95) : Great stuff. I'm sure I'd get tired of it after awhile but for this quick taste it has been exceptional. Now I will finish it while making lunch (dinner?).
