A wheat ale that we dry-hopped with a blend of citrusy American hops and left unfiltered, perfect for summer or anytime you feel like it! This beer pairs well with lazy afternoons and anything cooked outside.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a very thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, wheat, light caramelized malts and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a decent burst of hops bitterness that is quickly followed by sweet flavors of citrus, caramel and bananas. Then some breadiness comes in from wheat and a thin malt character creating a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a long time.

A - Hazy efervescent pale body with foamy white head. Very good retention and lacing.

S - Citrus

T - Dry wheat start, floral and citrus hops, and earthy grassy finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Clean with slight stickiness in the aftertaste.

O - Really enjoyable brew, especially when a bomber is on sale for $1.99!

Poured into my weizen glass, this beer was a gold color. with a medium-sized sticky white head. The head lingered nicely.

Aroma of fruit, floral hops, and spice.

The taste followed form. Banana, bread, a little spice, with that little kick of hops.

This was a nice beer, and it did a great job quenching my thirst. Usually not too much of a fan of this style, but would try this again.

Whipple's Wheat from Henniker. As a fan of lighter wheat beers (especially those that have a fruit flavoring), I was expecting some good things out of this one. On to the review:

A- Cloudy orange/dark straw.

S- Grassy with citrus notes, primarily lemon and grapefruit.

T- About the same as the smell: grassy with citrus popping but not as much as the smell sugests, more grapefruit than anything. Finish is slightly bitter for a wheat/hefeweizen with citrusy hops and floral notes.

M- Smooth, crisp, I love this kind of beer after a warm day like today. Refreshing.

O- Again, I am partial to lighter wheat beers and this one was very good. I would put a slice of lemon in this or even some fresh raspberries (or even both!) to give it more of a citrus pop.

Half gallon growler from the brewery.

Tight tiny bubbled lacing sticks to the glass. Hazed out pale straw hue. Big citrusy aroma with faint catty and herbal notes. Very smooth with a refreshingly quick crispness and moderate body. Biscuity all around, neutral but nutty yeast. Surprisingly very drinkable with a near perfect balance.

Well done for the hoppy wheat style.
