Maryland

3.74/5  rDev +2.5%

Poured from the bottle into a curved wheat ale glass.

Deep orange apricot body, with a good opaque and dark brown to yellow edge. Head is fluffy and creamy white with a simple top of two fingers, and a somewhat rich looking foam. Settles to a half finger puck ready for consumption. Looks like an inviting hefe.

A real solid classic hefe nose. Nice hints of bubblegum softness, and a bit of lemon. Clove and some phenolic brown spice character, and wheat density malt coming up. Just about bang on.

Palate unfortunately lacks a little in flavor and body. Slightly wet, with a faint flattened mineral carbonation a bit, and a quick fleeting finish. Missing a lot of the hinted density of chewy malt that is on the nose. Mild lemon, but with no dough or bakery quality. Kind of a seltzery palate as well, with a little bit of banana warmth slightly.

Overall it comes off a little disappointing, but still decent.

3.06/5  rDev -16.2%

A- pours a golden lemon color with a 1 finger bone white head. Delicate ring lingers around the edge. Cloudy in appearance.

S- Lots of malted wheat take over the nose. Bright fruits of pears more than the traditional clove. Ripe aroma.

T- Grainy wheat malt. It consumes the palate and renders the remaining flavors mild and bland. Faint banana, but nothing more than a hint before it goes away.

M- Body is light and welcoming on a hot day. Solid for the style.

O- Quite disappointing for the most part. I have had multiple brews from Steel Toe and based on previous results, I expected more. Just not a lot of distinct and bold flavors going on here.
