3.53/5 rDev -1.9%
Pours a semi-hazed honey colored with a thumb of pearl colored head. Average head retention & lacing
S: Grassy & bready
T: Grassy, faint lemon & grapefruit notes along with sweet bready notes up front. More grapefruit as this warms, some tangerine notes too, along with more grapefruit. Finihes with malty sweetness & grapefruit bitterness
MF: Light bodied, soft carbonation, good balance
This a decent attempt at a hoppy wheat, but not great. I'll stick with a L'il Sumpin Sumpin

12 oz bottle pours a much hazed orange-tinted gold color with a quick fading, off-white head. Not much lacing or retention.
Snappy wheat and grassy-citric hops. Nice, clean and fairly unique nose. I like it. The hop-fruitiness of the nose is astonishing and shifty. One sniff it is tangerine, the next lime peel and then maybe even cantaloupe.
Mmmm, taste is refreshing and dry with a nice fruity kick. The hop flavor is pretty unique and is accentuated by the tart wheat. Lime peel and grains...grapefruit and honey, nicely complex for a wheat. This is a wonderful take on the American Wheat style and one of the most distinctive I have had since I first tried Oberon many years ago. The mouthfeel is crisp and medium-full with a plethora of bubbles. Southern Missouri is overflowing with good beer, it is amazing to see some of the quality brews from this region...well done Ozark country...well done indeed.

Poured out of a stubby brown 12 oz bottle with no discernible freshness or bottling date. Poured into a classic weizen glass. The bottom of the label says "ale brewed with grapefruit peel", which is something new to me.
Appearance - It certainly looks the part of a hefeweizen, with a big bone-white rocky four-finger head that slowly starts to break apart, forming thick webbing after a long retention. Lacing is sticky, but spotty. Body is a sunny golden hue with a haze from the yeasty sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Shades of peach flesh and yellow.
Smell - Initially, an aromatic citrusy fruit element, with a nice sharp acidic element to it. That smell soon gives way to the rounder tones from the wheat and bready yeast characteristic. It's really nice how much the aroma balances the two contrapuntal flavor profiles. Very promising.
Taste - Unfortunately, the floral, citric hops that the aroma suggested are not nearly as present in the taste. Instead, we have a more classic APWA flavor profile with the bready wheat along with some notes of lemon peel and faint citrus.
Mouthfeel - Medium-body and high carbonation provide for a filling but refreshing feel. Finish is mostly dry with a faint lingering bit of sweetness.
Overall, a wonderful smelling, but slightly less inspired tasting take on the American Pale Wheat Ale. I will say that the "hopped up wheat" label might be a bit of a misnomer, especially compared to other so-called "hoppy wheats" I've had. The hops are present in the smell, but not very much in the taste. Still a very solid beer that I would gladly drink again on a hot summer day.

Reviewed at a pre-launch brewery tour, though the beer is now available at local bars on tap, and in growler's at local fine beer stores.
A wheat beer with a pale ale style hopping? Finally something to keep in the fridge for the fruit-in-beer friends, as well as a solid after-work choice.
I was pleasantly surprised that a wheat could make it's way on to my beer-run list. It takes a lot for me to stray from my IPA/imperial stout tastes, and to find a yellow beer so appealing, is simply shocking. There's a lot of skill into this one.

Pours a hazy gold color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of hops, lemon, wheat, floral, slight sweet malt, and slight pale malt. Fits the style of an American Pale Wheat Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of hops, slight pale malt, slight sweet malt, wheat, and a hint of floral notes. Overall, good appearance, aroma, and feel. Tastes very similar to Bell's Oberon.
