12 oz bottle into a Hoegaarden glass. Bottled 6-11-12.

A - Cloudy blonde with brisk carbonation. Massive head that lasts forever. Lots of lacing. Excellent.

S - Resiny, piney, grassy hop aroma. Fairly aggressive for an american wheat.

T - Firm initial bitterness with crisp wheaty malt flavor. Transitions into a grassy, black peppery hop taste and mildly dry finish.

M - Light body with brisk carbonation. Slight impression of oiliness.

O - A refreshing, grassy, hop-forward summer wheat beer.

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.

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

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.

Thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of lemons, wheat. Taste is light and mild, a bit of wheat tang, a touch of lemons, very refreshing but a bit bland. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

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.

A: The beer is nearly clear yellow in color and has a light to moderated amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with notes of citrus hops—lemons seem to stand out in particular.
T: As in the smell, the taste has flavors of wheat along with notes of bready and grainy malts and lemons. Faint bits of bitterness are also perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than being light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and can be considered sessionable. It's not a bad choice for a beer during the summer months.
