12oz bottle into standard pint glass.

A - crystal clear, light yellow color. Minimal head with no lacing, but typical for the style.

S - Very mild, but typical. Slight wheatie aroma but very faint.

T - Malty and sugary up front. Clean finish. Wheat comes through but still mild. Not alot of character and the booze is present but not as much as would be expected from the high ABV paired with this style of beer.

M - booze lingers slightly. creamy yet clean finishing. Leaves you wondering what you just drank but knowing it has some alcohol in it regardless.

O - Once again, not a style I would seek out alot. But, for what it is, Lagunitas has managed to make something drinkable. The high ABV is enjoyable though for many it might make this UNattractive as an option. Just can't bring myself to "want" any beers of this nature. Not bad I suppose but not something I would seek out.

I love this beer!!!
Pours a golden orange color with a nice head on it. Nice citrus floral aroma is a preview of the tastiness that awaits in your glass. This has the hoppiness of an IPA, but the wheat balances the flavor nicely and it has a wonderful mouthfeel. I can't believe this beer is 7.5% ABV... so smooth!

A - Pours a golden yellow with a white head. Plenty of bubbles rising in the glass long after the pour and great lacing.

S - Passionfruit and strawberry. The combination of wheat malt and hops aroma is utterly amazing.

T - Clean, fruity and slightly bitter with just the right malt backbone. A great change from your average IPA. I haven't ever tasted a beer in this category with such pronounced fruit flavors.

M - On the lighter side with great carbonation. Highly drinkable.

O - This is a wonderful beer and I'm glad I finally gave it a chance. I would have no idea it's a 7.5 on the ABV scale, it's very well hidden by the sensational flavor and drinkability.

Golden pour, thin frothy head, it has a beautiful floral hop aroma. The taste is similar, very good and heavy hop profile with some exciting funkiness that makes this brew stick out a little. Medium heavy mouthfeel with a great aftertaste that lingers with more of the floral notes you get in the scent.
