South Carolina

3.4/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

P:  Fuzzy effervescent golden straw body with copper highlights. Quick fading white head that settles to a thin film on top. 

S:  Sweet sun kist wheat, saw dust, leather, ginger, sweet toasted malt, spiced rum, floral and a sting of cinnamon. 

T/M:  Loads of wheat and citrus. Floral hops, alcohol is not really present like the nose, peaches, and a herbal oily coating, followed by green bitter banana.  Flavors are muted and not real clear, mostly wheat in taste. A touch acidic in a light medium feel that finishes dry and chalky and lingers fruit tartness and mild lemon zest.  Cinnamon shows up in the end and creates a hard to swallow feeling. 

O:  My first Southern Tier is a tad lackluster. I expected a terrific beer but got a decent offering.  It's not bad it's just less than expected. The nose was more powerful and started off great. Once warmed the nose was overly boozy. The taste was there but very docile. I would definitely drink this again though.
