3.98/5 rDev +16%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a standard pint glass.
A: A cloudy "pale ale" color or kind of a light brown. Hit the glass with a 1 1/2 finger off white or eggshell head that dissipated in about a minute leaving a ring of foam on the edge of the glass.
S: Spicy and tart. I can't name the spice, maybe clove? No noticeable hop aroma.
T: Wheaty with a hint of roasted or smokey malt. Very sharp and dry finish.
M: A little hard to describe, some creaminess from the carbonation and typical "wheat beer" feel. I don't know what to call that but you wheat beer drinkers know what I mean.
D: Generally, Wheat beers are not my forte but I really like this one. I may just have 3 or 4 after dinner tonight.

3.33/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Deep mahogany, before a strong light, there are ruby highlights and crystal clarity. The head is small, off-white and retains moderately well. Thin, glass-coating lace adorns the glass walls.
Aroma: Strong, fresh baked bread aroma dominates the aroma. Dark caramel notes are also present., as well as a subtle cocoa note.
Taste: Wheat malt is fairly strong at the open, I was hopeful of finding fruity esters, particularly banana, but these seem to be absent. Pleasant dark bread notes carry the taste from start to finish, although there is little else. There is a faint blush of herbal hops at the close.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, rather pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: Pleasant and drinkable, not outstanding, but not bad, either.
Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
