11/3..pours hazy yellowed gold with white foam ringing. Wheaty tropical fruit nose. A little sweet. Taste is a light wheat ale, fruity, followed by a latent hop bitter that never quite comes out. Good beer, good cause.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some notes of wheat. Taste is tart, lemons, wheat, light hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Like this beer a lot. Nice hoppy spiced thing going on. Great fruit tones. Extremely easy to drink. Too bad I only got one.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden color with a two finger thick and billowy white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a decent level of ring foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is light overall and is of the biggest of a wheat cracker like aroma mixed with a bit of yeast and a moderate showing of some lemongrass smells. Some sweeter orange is there as well rounding out the wheat and lemongrass nicely.

Taste – The taste begins with a wheat and more lemon like taste mixed with a bit of orange citrus. As the taste advances a little bit of a tasted bread flavor comes to the tongue. Along with the toasted bread some of the wheat fades with it being replaced by some flavors of a little bit of yeast and some grassy hop flavors. Toward the end the lemon and grass combined to produce a rather stronger lemongrass flavor and with a little bit of graininess coming to the tongue, a rather dry citrus wheat flavor is left to linger on the tongue

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer one the slightly creamier side for a wheat beer of 6.2 % abv with a carbonation that is on the slightly lower side. While traditionally a higher carbonation and slightly thinner body may be more appropriate, the combination in this beer actually accentuated the wheat and grass over the fruit and overall made for a pretty nice feel.

Overall – A rather easy drinking wheat beer. Nothing exceptional, but a nice drinker none the less.
