Gold color with excellent clarity. Looks more like a lager than a hoppy wheat ale. Beautiful crown of white adorns a ferverously carbonated brew. Excellent.

Cracked wheat and musty hops meet crisp citrus and red delicious apple. Leaning toward green leaf and guava with a hint of grapefruit. Smells great.

Crispy and a little tangy. Slight banana ester creeping in amongst citrusy and floral hops. More of that bite of pomme and almost farmhouse-like delicious strangeness. Finishes with a tingle of soft peppery spice.

Mushy in the mouth, but super-easy. Low maintenance beer with a good sudsy carbonation.

I love this hoppy wheat offering. A great pale with balance and drinkability. Recommended.

1/2 growler filled at DeCicco's, Brewster, NY

The pour is super light golden and super clear. Moderate off white head. Leaves some fine strands of lace behind on the glass,

The nose picks up just some faint wheat malts.

Pale and wheaty, minor hop presence. Not a lot going on here. I like my "hoppy Wheat" beers to have way more hops then this tepid offering. Decent as a traditional wheat beer, but falling way short of the advertising....

On draft at Sapsuckers, Huntington, NY.

Poured a pale brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and good lacing.

The smell featured grassy and herbal hops.

The taste consisted of an upfront hop spice that dominated the experiences. Sharp, herbal and grassy.

The mouthfeel was round with a lingering spice.

Overall a pretty tasty wheat ale.
