A - Warm orange-golden hues. Appetizing.

S - Reminiscent of a hefeweizen. Perhaps a very faint scent of yeast with citrus undertones.

T- Pleasant, quite wheaty, but not particuarly remarkable in my book.

M- Highly carbonated, which although true to style description, overpowers the mildness of the taste,which somewhat spoiled the overall experience.

O-Would be highly drinkable if it weren't so aggressively carbonated. Maybe a style thing, but I wouldn't buy this again, although I would drink it if offered.

12oz single was bottled on 4/18/13. Chilled. Pours into pint glass a sickly yellow, nicely cloudy, with a moderate white head which rapidly falls. Aroma of lemon, wheat, and a hint of clove. Sharply fizzy and of moderate body. The carbonation helps to accentuate the tart flavors here, which I'm going to attribute (having cheated and looked at the brewer's notes) to the acidulated malt. Spicy clove flavors come through in the taste as well, but not much else does. Mild and enjoyable, and it would be a great summer session wheat ale *except* for the overly carbonated mouthfeel.

(Served in a bowtie glass)
Bottled 4/18/13
A- This beer pours a glowing hazy to the pale orange body with a bubble white head that fades to a ring after a few sips. There is a gentle carbonation that works its way to the surface.

S- The unripe fruity hops blend with some green banana esters and a bread dough note in the finish.

T- The dry green hops have some jammy fruit hints with white bread notes that lead to a dry field corn flavor. The finish is a nice mellow unripe fruit hops flavor that lingers after each sip.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a full crisp fizz in the finish.

O- The great blend of flavors compliment each other with unripe fruit hops and green fruit esters in a very sessionable, drinkable beer.
