3.63/5  rDev -1.6%

Very nice looking wheat beer. Hazy yellow with a tinge of orange and a nice fluffy, lasting head.

Smell is yeasty, with some orange citrus, doughy grains, and a little fruitiness. Almost heffish.

Taste is boldly yeasty, really nicely done in that category. There's a nice balance of hops and wheaty malts, along with a touch of fruit and citrus, plus just a little spice. Very nice.

Body is very light and pretty drinkable. Yeasty aftertaste. Kind of dry for a wheat. A bit on the bitter side for a wheat also.

It's quite the lawnmower beer. Tasty and drinkable, a nice summer selection.

This limited brewing pours a hazy gold, with a thick and sudsy head. Superb and thick spiderweb lace, too.

Nose is an appealing mix of citrus hops and sharp wheat. I get some lemon. Superb.

Taste is crisp and sharp, with a bread-like wheatiness and much of that citrus lemon character. Very nice, and worth a wider release one day, I say.

The beer poured out a hazy, pale gold color with a two-finger, bubbly, off-white head of foam. it left sticky rings of lace on the glass. The smell was fairly grassy with some nice wheat notes. A touch of pine, too. The taste was a good blend of flavors, wheat, grasses, pine and a touch of lemon pith. Great balance. The mouthfeel was crisp, sharp and smooth. A dry-finishing, medium bodied ale. Overall this is good.

3.85/5  rDev +4.3%

Bottled 04-02-12

Pours a super-hazed gold with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Light citrus & grassy notes

T: Follows the nose, some grapefruit & breadyness as well up front. Slight white grape green apple peel flavors as this warms, along with lemons & sweet breadyness. Finishes crisp, citrussy, even a little soapy, along with just a bit of orange peel

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, good balance

Easy drinker, but was hoping the hops might be a little more assertive. This is not the cheaper, semi-local alternative to a Lil Sumpin, Sumpin I was hoping for, but will quench your thirst very nicely

3.66/5  rDev -0.8%

Pours out to a patchy white head that lasts, a few narrow lace garters down the glass and cloudy, yeasty light golden color. Aroma is spicy, minty, floral hops and a bit of sharp wheat bite. Flavor really captures the signature characteristics of two styles (hoppy pale ales and American wheat beers) with a rush of hop flavor followed with a bready, grainy, slightly citrus finish. Mouthfeel is excellent. Overall a good call. If you want a "normal" wheat beer, grab a Boulevard Wheat, but for what it is, it is very good.

Basically they took a smooth and luscious wheat beer and dry-hopped the hell out of it to get the dominant aroma and taste of hops without extracting the bitterness. This is an ideal beer for those who love the smell and taste of hops but can do without the intense bitterness of an IPA or even an APA.

12 ounce bottle, bottled on March 19, 2012. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy light gold color with a few inch frothy off-white head. The head sticks around for a very long time, and there's also a lot of lacing. I had to let the head settle a bit before I could even pour the whole bottle into the glass. The brew smells like citrusy hops (lemon and orange peel), wheat/bready malt, and a little bit of banana. It tastes like grassy and citrusy (lemon peel) hops, and wheat/bready malt. Nice citrusy/bitter/grainy flavor overall. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's refreshing but at the same time has a bit too much carbonation for me. I'd try this again in the future. Single picked up at either Liquor Barn or Party Source, I forget exactly where I bought this one at.

4.11/5  rDev +11.4%

A-Cloudy yellow, some carbonation, one finger head.

S-Great citrus notes, along with nice wheat. But the citrus hops are very good.

T-Starts with light citrus notes, mild wheat, some grass and slight bitterness.

M-Lighter tad watery and not much carbonation.

O-Much better than I expected. The hops provide a nice citrus note but the beer is still light and sessionable.
