12oz single picked up at Pinocchio's in Media, PA. Poured into a Stella glass.
AP: Bright gold colour with a 1" white head that fizzles down to a 1/4", decent lacing. There's both carbonation bubbles and sediment floating suspended in the liquid which reminds me of looking at a clear bottle of Aloe Vera or a lava lamp. Funky.
AR: Straw, hay, cracker, orange, funky yeast, a bit of lemon sourness.
T: Biscuit and cracker malt base with some wheat notes, soft note of lemon tartness and a touch of orange rind. Finish has a bit of a sour and bitter bite with a touch of pine and pink grapefruit and yeasty funk.
M: Too carbonated for my tastes, so much so it takes away from actually fully tasting the flavours of this beer. Finish has a kind of oily moist coating on the tongue and then starts to turn slightly dry.
OV: It's a decent Pale Wheat Ale, but I doubt I'd buy this again when I can get Lagunitas Sumpin Sumpin. I know, different takes on a PWA, apples to oranges, but this is somewhat mundane to me.
