look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. Canned on 5/15/13.
Appearance: Pours a pale and somewhat hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big four finger white head that holds some decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing.
Smell: A zesty wheat driven aroma with lots of fruity citrus esters and some spice. Wheat and pale malt upfront with hints of biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Sweet hints of honey. The Sorachi Ace hop scent comes out as well as a big citrus hop presence. Big hints of juicy orange peel and pulp, pineapple, and lemon zest. Also some hints of white peppers and coriander spicing. A very juicy and zesty smell. It literally smells like there is orange juice mixed in here. Very nice.
Taste: Lives up to the good aroma, lots of wheat with zesty citrus fruit notes and some spice. Dry bready wheat and pale malt with notes of biscuit, yeast, and crackers along with some sweet honey taste. Solid hop presence for a wheat ale with good notes of the Sorachi Ace hop. Big citrus fruit notes of oranges and peel along with some pineapple and lemon zest. Some spicy taste as well with notes of white pepper and a little coriander. Zesty and nicely balanced. A very good taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, juicy, and somewhat spicy. Very smooth.
Overall: A really good wheat ale. Good balance of sweetness and dryness with really vibrant citrus taste. A great summer beer.
Serving type: can
