3.93/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 5-liter mini-keg into a standard pint glass.
A - Depends on how you look at it. In a lighted area, it appears an amberish orange. Hold it directly up to the light and it is a murky yellow. So it is quite a bit more appetizing if you don't hold it directly up to any light source. A hard pour produces a nice thick two finger off-white head that disappears pretty quickly leaving only a ring of bubbles around the glass that leaves a slight lace.
S - Orange rinds, biscuits, fresh hops, malts, and a hint of lemon.
T - The orange taste is immediate. Give it a couple seconds and the hops and malts come through, followed by that hint of lemon.
M - A little thin with a bit too much carbonation for a pale ale. Overall, not too bad, but certainly not remarkable.
D - Very nice! Good ABV, not too strong but not weak by any means. Definitely refreshing and a great summer beer!
Serving type: on-tap

3.69/5 rDev -3.1%

This is a pale gold colored beer with a very hazy body, and a slight head of airy foam. Aroma consists of little more than faint wheat malt. Nice hoppiness, with high bitterness and a grassy, citrusy hop flavor. The yeast strain gives a well-rounded fruitiness. Otherwise, nothing much else here. It is well-carbonated and refreshing.
Nothing too special, but a pretty drinkable beer. It reminds me of the early days of micros when everyone made a generic American wheat.

3.61/5 rDev -5.2%

Pours a cloudy straw color with yeast floaters all around. The finger of white head dissipates slowly but steadily. The nose is yeasty. The flavor profile follows the nose and, of course, has plenty of wheat upfront.
This offering is slightly tastier than the average wheat beer but it is certainly nothing special.
