4/5  rDev +6.4%

Extra pale golden color with a bright white head basically describes this beer as well as I can. The nose is full of amarillo and grapefruit notes, with a bit of skunked wheat and light malts including malted wheat. Fuckin' fantastic flavor I'm tasting beautiful light beer from the draft twice at two different bars both Bocktown and Fathead's has done me well. Flows very well on the palate with a big hop flavor with balanced wheat bread notes I really enjoyed and I plan to drink it some more when I find it in bottles or draft again. Another mouthfeel aspect belongs to the carbonation and the oily hop textures going on in this beer, I really enjoyed it. Overall damn tasty beer that I will meet again with all intentions.

Poured into a Ball jar on a sweaty summer day. This is just what I was looking for in the heat. It poured a hazy amber with a tall white head. It's a subtle lighter-bodied beer with a crisp, hoppy finish that makes it a wonderful session beer. The flavor has a biting, citrus rind hops character with underlying floral fruit notes, and long peppery grapefruit finish. I don't get much wheat, but I could say the same for Oberon (I'd rather have this beer). The aroma has a cleaner pineapple and floral citrus mix, which makes a great contrast to the rougher flavor. Check this out.

Hazy yellow-orange pour with one finger head with minimal retention and decent lacing. Nice fresh hop nose with hints of grapefruit, lemon, pine and just a touch of tangerine. The taste follows suit with great fresh hop resins and tons of citrus, specifically grapefruit. Just enough malty sweetness to keep it balanced. The mouthfeel is slightly fizzy and a bit oily with a nice tangy, crisp, dry bitter hop finish. I'm not typically a fan of wheat beers, but this one stands out from the pack. My first Lavery beer, but definitely not my last!

4/5  rDev +6.4%

Pours hazed golden with a foamy white head that lasts, leaving some lacing.

The smell is of citric and tropical fruits with herbal spicing and a wheat malt backing.

The taste is of citric zesty/spicy hops with a sweet grainy and dry wheat backing. Finishes refreshingly dry.

The feel is crisp with a smooth light body that is not too thin or watery.

This is a nice, refreshing, well-hopped wheat ale. Great for a spring or summer day! Well-done!

Pours a hazy yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, a sweet fruitiness of peaches, and somewhat sugary. In the taste, faint dry peach skins and a thinner flavor than nose. A smooth and light bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry faint peach skin in the aftertaste. Big nose, but a touch watery. Decent nonetheless.

Pours like a wheat beer, almost white and very pale. White head forms and leaves plenty of lace. Aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon and herbal elements. In the flavor, a nice dose of grapefruit and bitterness, with a light wheat malt backing. Nicely hoppy, bitter, and pretty tasty. Light bodied feel with a good level of carbonation. Overall, another winner from Lavery, a local brewery that can do no wrong it seems.

Pours a hazy blonde in the tall tulip. A pleasant sudsy appearance. Plenty of carbonation in the mouth.

Taking a big mouthful, it takes just a second to think "grapefruit." Tastes more like grapefruit juice than any other beer I've had. Totally a fresh hop experience. But it's so anemic on the wheat flavor with so little malt to provide any balance. Thin and bitter. Not a bad hop, but it's all citrus, and the bitter pith taste just keeps on and on.

It's a decent alternative to a lighter style of IPA, if you're looking for a big mouthful of hops. In the 22 oz bottle from the Foodery in Philadelphia.

4.4/5  rDev +17%

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color with a relatively modest head that leaves a few strands of lacing behind

Smell: Tangerine citrus and pine, with a hint of bread

Taste: After an intial taste of bread, the tangerine, lemon and pine flavors take over producing a flavor akin to a citrus drop candy - primarily tart and citrusy, but strangely sweet without being sugary; the sweet/tart flavors linger into the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; a bit puckery from the citrus flavor though it could stand to be a bit crisper

Overall: Another fine beer from this relatively new brewery; I really appreciate the way Jason packs flavor into a sessionable beer

Thanks, Axic10, for the opportunity

This beer looks great off the pour. And the nose is phenomenal; a floral, fruity thing. But the flavor profile does not fit for the style. There is no discernible wheat character here. Just a lot of hop influence that seems to clash with the wheat. And this seems somewhat Belgian to me also. Carbonation fills the mouth quite a bit.

As a beer, this certainly tastes nice. But as a wheat ale, it doesn't really fit the bill. I'd give a 4.25 based on taste alone. But as a wheat beer, it doesn't quite work.
