Situation: recovering my senses after Jerilyn and Rob's wedding weekend--cheers!
Glassware: Koenig wheat...
Appearance: Hazy golden body supports an equally hazy, bubbly off-white head-handosme...
Aroma: Tremendously aromatic bouquet of alchemized hops, as the bottle proclaims; the clever merge of Northwest and English hops provides a delightfuly softened citrus fruit aroma when wedded with the wheat...
Palate: confident, strong yet smooth body in a wheat ale...the wheat softens the approaching crunch that never hits, like a wave that breaks well before shore...
Taste: genuine citric crispness that holds its alcohol well within its body--the hops are balanced nicely within a wheat pillow case, but flavor is definitely available on the teeth and tongue...
Overall: A birthday gift handpicked by mother-in-law--and what a gift! I applaud Flying Fish for their (somewhat politically maligned) attempt to pay homage to NJ's distinguishing features...the big bottle affords a big yet respectable taste...if only Jersey traffic were this smooth and enjoyable...

Pours a slightly cloudy, golden yellow color with a medium-sized white head of soapy foam that recedes quite rapidly leaving some sparse lacing.
Aromas begin with a semi-spicy, grassy, citrusy fruity hop profile with some dry wheat maltiness along with some subtle breadiness.
The tastes begin with some grassy, citrus and floral hops. As it warms you can appreciate the balancing bready malt flavors with a touch of sourness from the ample wheat malt additions.
The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is crisp, slightly bitter and overall quite freshing and clean.
Overall this is a super solid hoppy wheat beer from an emergingly solid NJ brewer. While some of their "regular" 6 and 4 pack offering are lackluster, these Exit series beers have been quite above average and well worth seeking out. This is flavorful and great for when you want a slight twist from your basic pale ale.
