Drank on-tap at Flatbread Company, Somerville, MA
Served in a pint glass
Hazy, glowing, orangey-amber in appearance. The liquid was topped by a small, creamy, off-white head that quickly fell to a clingy ring.
The nose was unique and quite pleasant. Floral, slightly fruity, jasmine tea-like notes came through strong. Lots of honey. Some orange peel was detectible as well.
The flavor profile was also quite distinct. Jasmine tea was most noticeable. Citrus notes appeared in the center. Biscuity malts showed up on the back end. This beer looked and tasted more like an amber ale with flavor added than a wheat ale. Lots of sweet honey notes. The finish was dry and tannic and seemed to contain a green tea-like flavor. No hops were detectible. At 8% ABV, I was amazed by how remarkably well the alcohol was buried.
The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with an ultra fine, medium effervescence.
This is the first Night Shift beer that I have sampled and I was quite impressed. I look forward to trying their other releases.
Serving type: on-tap

750ml bottle into teku glass. Bottled 7/16/13. Thanks Kevin!
A: Pours a burnt amber orange color with a couple fingers of fizzy tan head that faded into a fuzzy collar.
S: Lots of spice on the nose. I get scents of peppery yeast, apple juice, green tea, orange, honey, and golden fruits. Smells intriguing.
T: Honey, orange blossom, and peppery spices dominate alongside hints of green tea that is flavorful and still easy to pick out. Wheat base is crisp and grainy. The finish has a fruity quality to it that reminds me of an apple juice blend. The aftertaste is sweet, spicy, and lingering.
M: Medium-full body, tingly and and fuzzy carbonation, fuzzy and mildly drying mouthfeel.
O: Complex and interesting flavor. Green tea, orange, honey and wheat worked well together. Very delicious. Thanks again Kevin!
