See this all the time, thought I should finally try it

A - Not a lot of head, but what is there leaves a ton of lacing

S - Pretty crazy: biscuit, big red gum, cookie spices, raw flour, a lot of hop presence: getting citra and chinook big time. Obviously a great amount of wheat malt and maybe roasted pale malts

T - Wheat astringency, good amount of hoppy bitterness, some juicy hops. Big malts, big hops

M - Almost drying, like tap water with some implied astringency. Alcohol is very well hidden

Definitely gets points for originality. It definitely is a "little sumpin" cause I have no idea what just happened

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

A- Transparent golden body with a frothy white head that leaves some lacing.

S- Lots of wheat and lots of piney hops with some grapefruit.

T- The wheat and the hops play very nicely off of each other. The beginning is a slightly sweet wheat presence with the piney and resiny hop flavors coming through in the middle. The finish has a very bitter taste with a hint of alcohol presence which is surprising because it is not as noticeable until the end.

M- Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very drinkable for the ABV.

O- Very good beer that would be great if the alcohol was dialed back slightly.
