3.68/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz brown pop top, nice simple label, bottled with love on 3-14-12. Great to see more new, experimental brews from Schlafly, esp. available in six packs!

Appearance: Into my Duvel tulip, as my wheat glasses were all dirty. Pours a rich, golden straw hue. A couple swirls of the yeast in the bottle ensure that this is perfectly opaque. A large, creamy ivory cap with nice retention and some lacing.

Smell: This is a single-hopped (and dry-hopped) beer, I believe, using US Challenger hops (a typically UK variety) grown in the Yakima Valley. It's an interesting hop profile, and something I'm not really used to. The hops are earthy, resiny, and a bit dank. Certainly not unpleasant, but a bit unusual. No real citrus or pine, but perhaps a bit spicy. A neutral American ale yeast is used here, so not much in the way of esters. Perhaps just a bit sweetish smelling malt as well.

Taste: Wow. Not really what I was expecting. Firm, off-dry pale malt presence with a medium-bodied silky mouthfeel (assuming it's from the wheat) and a really interesting hop profile. Starts a bit dark and herbal, but ends with a bit of a sweet orange note. As it warms, I get a bit of underripe peach as well. Firm, relatively strong bitterness, but not at all overpowering.

Mouthfeel: Rich and silky

Overall: Summer sipper with lots of (interesting) hop character, nice pale malt background, and great body and mouthfeel. For $8.00 a sixer, this is a really nice summer beer, and a really interesting take on an American Pale Wheat Ale.

High B to possible B +

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 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.

look: 1 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.75

Poured from can into pint glass. Lots of suspended flocculated yeast, seriously two cans poured and both were snow globes. Bottom of can says it was canned march 12...so maybe four months later this puppy is past its prime. Not a strong hop character flavor or aroma wise, just stale cracker flavor and nose. Kind of disappointed with this offering.

3.14/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: A cloudy rusty cantaloupe rind colored body holds up a nice foamy cream colored head. Very little recession in the head. Light foamy lacing.

Aroma: Malty and spicy with woody cedar notes.

Taste: Just like the aroma, very thick with malts, spiced cedar, and maybe a faint touch of citrus in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thick for a wheat beer.

Overall: Not sure if I understand this beer. Thick and spicy.

Serving type: can
