Semi-opaque golden, with a light head of white carbonation. Lace didn't really appear.

Nose is caramel malts, toasty and bready. Nice.

Taste is similar, with more toasty malts, caramel, and a swift kick of hops at the finish. A delightful and full-flavored wheat beer, and one I'll revisit.

Triton just started bottling this a couple weeks ago.

This beer pours a light bodied honey gold in color with just a slight white lacing around the glass that quickly disappeared. It is very bright and does resemble honey or a honey tea quite a bit. The nose is pretty standard for a pale wheat. There is slight pale malt aromas, a touch of honey, with an ever so slight yeastiness. There isn't reall much to it. I definitely don't get any Amarillo and the yeast character is muted. It's ok. It drinks really light in body with aggressive carbonation. It has a slight bite to it. Overall this is a pretty average wheat. I would have preferred some hop character as well as traditional yeast characteristics. That said, I could see others really enjoying this during the summer. It would be very session able and great in warm weather.

For an American Wheat it's very pleasant to drink. It was a little more hoppy than I was expecting for a wheat beer and it has a slight IPA like feel in the mouth. Very good taste and flavor but personally I could have used a little more. I'm familiar with very flavorful beers and I enjoy ones that have a bit more weight to them. This would be a good summer session beer.

Overall it's a good beer but there is nothing that really distinguishes it from other craft wheats that I've had; if you do find yourself at Triton I recommend the Rail Splitter IPA.

On tap at Tomlinson Tap Room. Poured a nice gold with excellent bubbles, with nice head and lacing throughout. Huge sweet wheat malt aroma with a nice citrus hit. Excellent wheat/straw flavors with a wonderful citrus hop kick, with a slight spiciness at the end. Went down very well, although I'd be okay if it were thicker.

A: A very clear, honey-tinted straw color. Strikingly clear. Nice foamy bubbles on top of the beer.

S: Not very strong. Grain and husks with a touch of citrus.

T: Stronger on the hop flavor than I had anticipated. Starting off with semi-sweet bready malts leading into the hop flavors of lemon and orange and finishing off with a grassy and bitter flavor that lasts for awhile

M:medium bodied with a nice carbonation.

O: Not bad. More of a hoppy beer made with wheat than a straight up american wheat which is more of what I was expecting, not that I am disappointed. It has a relatively lower IBU, 25 I believe from the bottle, but it seems like it could be a bit higher on the finish. I could see buying from time to time but would definitely drink one if offered.

A:Pours a golden straw color with a good sized white head. Little bubbles can be seen.

S: Starts with some citrus and orange with a bit of caramel. Pretty much what you'd expect from a wheat.

T: Starts with a bit of bready caramel before going into some citrus and orange flavors. Just a bit of grassy hops on the finish. There are hints of honey and straw throughout.

M: Light with high carbonation.

O: Solid wheat beer. Being from Indiana I'm a big fan of the artwork (basketball sun rising over fields).

A- Pours a medium level of hazy with a swirl around the bottle to get it out. Bright yellow in color like a wheat should be, with a 2 finger head that retains a minute or two and has decent lacing.

S- Light, grainy, and a little citrusy for most of the scent. At the back end of the sniff there is a hint of very mild, balancing hops bitterness.

T- Starts very light and grainy with a fairly strong citrus presence. Lemon is prominent in the fruit flavor, which takes over the middle half of the drink. Citrus flavor lingers until the end, when a very mild hops presence appears. The combination of citrus and hops gives a bit of a metallic flavor that lingers after the drink ends.

M- Highly carbonated and pretty light flavors make this one very drinkable, but the heavier wheat presence limits it a bit. Still, this is in line other wheat ales as far as weight.

Overall, nothing especially special here, just an everyday wheat with a little above average citrus flavor. Metallic flavor really brings the flavor back to average.
