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.

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).

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.
