I like the crash landed. It is a solid slightly hoppy wheat beer.....has decent bitterness that dissipates quickly making this very drinkable and sessionable. The beer poured clear and golden but with not much head and no lacing. Overall this is a good beer and I would drink it again.

It's tasty enough. I would have wanted the wheat aspect to have come through a little more. Similar style to Gumball head but not as much citrus flavors. Hoppy with an easy drinkability. The 7%abv is not even noticeable.

First batch of bottled beer from Begyle.

Pale straw color with a saturated orange tone in the center. Billowing head of creamy foam that sticks around, leaving behind concentric lace rings and a steady head that never retreats. Slow but steady carb trails visible. Looks pretty nice.

Husky grain aroma, wheat... mild sweetness, fairly subdued in general.

Flavor shows a little bit more hop character, slightly green and herbal bitterness comes through in the aftertaste. Mellow wheaty feel, smooth though not much oomph. Light and grainy, light hops in the finish. A bit bland, not much to set it apart really. Hope this improves in the future.

1/2/16 Chicago (12 oz Bottle poured into pint glass) Golden orange pour, light white head which quickly dissipated. Wheat and hops aroma. Strong hops taste, nice solid carbonation and feel while drinking. Easy going down.Overall good offering.

Tasted in a Teku glass from a 12 oz bottle on August 16, 2015. Look is bright amber, medium head that thins quickly and some thin lacing. Smell is wheat, citrus fruit, and sweet pale malt. Taste is a little sweet grain and then strong bitter citrus fruit. Feel is medium in body with a dry bitter finish.

Orange color with a thin white head. From a bottle, yeast sediment on the bottom, the first bit was nice and clear. Fruity aroma, with a slight bit of noble hop character. Clean bitter finish. Not a lot of malt complexity, but not a dru finish, sweet at the end.

Great wheat beer, I'd buy more.

Pours a bright amber with light head, much darker than I'd have expected a wheat beer to look. Sweet with deeper malt character than I expected and a notable slightly bitter citrus finish. Enjoyed this one - see it more as a competitor to Lagunitas Lil' Sumpin Sumpin than to Gumballhead.
