Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Batch # 88.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Batch 88.

Wheaty wiffs wight from the beginning. Very creamy smell with big vanilla notes. Pours a surprisingly clear lemon color with a white frothy head measuring in at a solid finger thick. No carbonation rises. Taste is similar to the smell. Creamy with a vanilla presence. Pretty darn smooth. A decent hop crunch sits on the tongue in the middle of it all. Slightly citrus as I start to notice some awesome lacing. Now the smell is reminding me of white chocolate. Not terribly sweet, but that seems to be a main idea. Balance is not outstanding, id like more wheat than I'm experiencing. As you'd expect, the 7.5% is hidden well. Carbonation levels in the mouth are satisfactory. The beer lingers pleasantly for an extended period. This specimen makes the cut.

22oz, batch #88 2/20/13
Riedel tulip

A: Slightly hazy bright orange color. Soapy lacing. Faint really. Sticky lacing sheets left.

S: Certainly getting that bright citrus character. Orange peel. Lemon. Tangerine. The wheat malt bill pops out with those grassy hops.

T: Mild hop bitterness up front. Really soft. Some hints of spice and citrus. Medium malt bill. Those grassy hops are there. Dry crisp close. As mentioned, good summer beer.

M: Medium bodied. Good carbonation.
