4.18/5 rDev +25.5%
Stubby bottle poured into a standard pint.
Standard pour left a 2-1/2 finger creamy white head. Golden orange body with slight haze.
Nice citrus aroma with balance of wheat. There is a very subtle spice, but the citrus is the dominant aspect.
Medium citrus flavor with a hint of spice and balanced mild hop. Medium carbonation
The mouth feel is nice, a touch grainy, there is nice medium carbonation.
It is a nice balanced beer. It is easy to drink, but not too light. Overall, pretty good. I've been trying many of the North Peak beers and I've become a fan. Nice addition. I'm a big Founders Fan too. This isn't my preferred style. But, still a decent b

So, been working on this beer for a while. Probably my least favorite from NP. Not sure really what style it is. Wit or American Wheat beer. Confusing. That said, this beer used to be just terrible but they were new so I thought they needed more time. IPAs can hide a lot of flaws but this beer couldn't hide a thing...so Big improvement. As others have noted , something has changed in the this brewery since December. Don't know what but very happy. If they could keep working on this and make it into Spotted Cow thennn - home run. Still a nice light wheat/wit beer. Just needs some more work still.

I have become a pretty big North Peak fan. There was one I didn't like as much, but I can't remember which. These have been really nice.
This one is nice in the glass. It has a unique malty sweetness I am not used to in the style. But it also has yeast and hops flavors very prominently. It is a unique, not too heavy brew.
This is one to buy for a nice change of pace - it is unique.

A slight hint of fresh strawberries and oranges seems to emanate from the head, which is an off-white color and pretty short. Quickly dissipating, the head leaves a thin film with a ring at the edge and a modicum of lacing. A clear golden color, the brew is well carbonated and feels good on the tongue. After sloshing about the last dregs in the bottle, the yeasty sediment is added to the glass stein to add some haziness and a bit more citrus to the flavor.
Frisky hops hit the palate first, followed by cereal grain malts and a hint of cloves. Almost a pale ale in style, but with the lightness of wheat, this ale is nicely done.

Light amber and slightly cloudy. Only the tiniest amount sediment at the bottom of the bottle. A thick full rich creamy white head fading quickly leaving laces behind. Smells Malty with a trace of fruit in there. Some sort of berry maybe. Tastes lightly malted yet very sweet, with a bitter undertow.

A: Slightly hazy darker colored amber. Forms a thin, patchy but still rocky-bubbly surface coating of white head.
S: Strong wheat aroma. Lemon, yeast, and a mild funkiness.
T: Bready and yeasty. A little clove spice. Lemon and lots of wheat flavor.
M: On the lighter side of medium with heavier carbonation. Slight tartness on the tongue.
O: Fairly good and quite drinkable, but nothing too exciting and couldn't see coming back to this one again.

Poured golden with a fine grainy nose. Tasted like a standard wheat beer, medium bodied and very drinkable. Nothing bad about this beer, but nothing obscenely great either. A very standard and drinkable wheat. I liked it but not enough to buy it on any regularity.
