A- orange/amber in low indoor light. semi-transparent a bit hazy. Nice creamy head

S- Sweet citrus, light hops

T- Floral, hop flavor. floral, perfume/hop aftertaste that ain't bad and lasts a while. or as they say "lingers long time"

M- A little foamy, malty.

O- Usually like wheat beers. This is no exception. Floral hop flavor dominates and I have a thing for hops.

"A derisious wheat ale with a hoppy finish that lingers long time"

Chill haze runs throughout the burnt orange body but when backlit shades of sunset orange take over. The dirty white head grows to a finger in height and becomes incredibly dense as it slowly settles to a thick cap. Sticky lacing decorates the glass.

There is a lot more caramel in the nose than I expected. I'm afraid this one is past it's prime. Tea leaf hoppiness and a squeeze of lemon join a more pronounced jammy orange but like I said, there is a lot of malt present in the nose of this beer, although the sugary jammy notes smell solid.

Tea leaf hoppiness hits right off the bat as well, too bad. For such a low alcohol beer there is a heavy dose of caramel, it's not overly sweet but the flavor is there. Orange marmalade comes through mid-palate and adds a nice touch. There's a decent bitterness on the finish.

The body has a nice softness and sits just below moderate in weight. It feels a little to light at times. The bitterness hits in the middle and lingers after each drink growing to a nice firmness toward the end of the glass.

This beer is past it's prime, which is a shame because I can see the flavor profile being inviting if it were fresh. Jammy, bitter, caramel, and easy drinking would make for a solid beer. Unfortunately, this particular bottle is a shell of its former self.

Served in a perfect pint glass

A - This beer is amber with golden highlights. It is topped with three inches of beige head.

S - The first thing I smell is caramel malt. This is a sweet smelling beer. Disappointing given the "hoppy' in the name. I do get some floral hops as it warms.

T - The taste is sweeter than I care for. I get little as far as hops goes. It has some toffee and caramel taste along with the wheat.

M - Smooth. The wheat makes for a smooth transition down my throat.

O - This is a disappointing beer. I have loved all the Odd Side Ales I have tried so far. This beer was way off the others. I will have to grab a Citra Pale Ale to cleanse my palate.

Oh, Me So Hoppy To Wheat You looks like a red sun; it has a fiery amber tone and heavily blistered complexion. Clarity is compromised despite the bright highlights. It also has a head with a soapy lather the likes of which would give the health inspector an erection.

The beer certainly smells 'derisious'. It's full of hoppiness of all sorts: piny, citric, herbal. If the dark colour didn't give it away this "Wheat ale" is really more of an IPA. The bouquet includes lots of mandarin orange notes (part of the Asian theme?) as well as tree resins.

Wheat is overlooked on the palate as well; thick, toasty, biscuity notes of barley malt dominate the flavour, though grass clippings and citrus fruits fade slowly into the aftertaste. It's bready and toasty enough (with just enough marmalade) to spawn a different type of "breakfast" beer.

All this hoppiness does indeed give it a finish that 'lingers long time'. The texture is resiny and has a dry, pithy quality like that of a citrus peel. OddSide Ales doesn't list the level of IBUs but it's got to be up there - it's bitter enough you'd think the beer was trying to punish you for drinking it. That's OK - I'm a glutton for this kind of punishment.

'Oh, Me So Hoppy To Wheat You' is indeed a beer I'm "hoppy" to have tried. It is definitely more of an IPA than Wheat Ale; the wheat ensures an ultra-fluffy, super-resilient head but that's about the extent of its influence. If you're a hophead who wants to expand their portfolio (at least superficially) then a purchase of this beer will surely result in a 'happy ending'.
