look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a mostly clear golden color with a one finger head and nice lacing.

S: Lots of fruity and sweet aromas along with a little bit of bread.

T: Just like the smell, there taste if very fruity and sweet along with some bready flavors. Mainly citrus and floral flavors balance nicely with the light malt backbone. Really nice!

M: Medium body with good carbonation.

O: As a hop-head, this is right up my alley. I haven't has many Wheat Beers, but this is about ideal for me. I really enjoyed this one and will be buying more!

Pours golden orange, mostly opaque and cloudy with a somewhat thin, wispy white head. Decent lacing left along the sides of the glass, more so during the latter half of the beer. Nose is a cornucopia of fruits and sweetness; grapefruits, apricots, grapes, raisins, pears. It has a nice rum and booze-like aroma overshadowing the whole thing, too. Taste follows right along with the fruit heavy theme, also adding slight orange to the mix. The booze flavor is noticeable as well, but adds a nice complexity to the flavor profile rather than hindering things. Wheat and yeast heavy all around; grains and biscuits finish things off and show up strong in the aftertaste. Another big flavor that comes out quite a bit after the beer has already been swallowed - burnt sugar, like the top of a creme brulee. Very interesting and very taste. Hop flavors are weedy, musky, and heavily vegetal. Medium body, lots of carbonation.

Very unique beer, tasty, no doubt. Possibly a little too sweet at first, but it mellows out nicely and turn into one hell of a drinker. Wheaty and fruity all around, with a nice alcohol warming through and through. Not sure if I'm in love with some of the hop flavors, though.

a: hazy dark yellow body, two fingers of thick clumpy head stay till the last drop, leaving clumpsof lacing all the way down the glass.

s: sweet spicy sugary hops and wheat.

t: pretty tasty wheat beer with a very nice hop forward profile.

m: medium body, good carbonation level. little hop twang on the tongue, but not dry or overly bitter. maybe a little oily.

o: one of my absolute favorites that got me into craft beer to begin with.
