Draught @ Brewpub: this one pours a cloudy golden color. A fair amount of a foamy white head that doesn’t linger long but does leave some lacing. The aroma id decent. Mainly some wheat and citrus notes. The taste is also pretty good. Wheat, citrus, and a slightly lighter body. A nice brew.

Had on tap at Portsmouth. Review from notes.

A: Served in a tall weizen glass, the beer was extremely hazy, light orange in color with yellow highlights. Small ring of foam on top minimal lacing.

S: A little bit of honey and wheat with some light citrus. There is a little bit of a yeast aroma as well.

T: Very wheaty with little else going on really. Some very light citrus hops and faint fruit flavors.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.

O: It was just ok. Not bad, but a little boring especially after the other beers I had that day.

Poured on-tap at the Portsmouth Brewery and served in a weisse glass. The beer is a cloudy goldenrod color, with no head whatsoever. There is a light spicing, with a fruity balance to the aroma. The flavors are a citrus sweet blend, with light spicing in the background, mostly coriander. Very tasty. There is a tangy sweet aftertaste, with a puckering finish. The citrus notes really kick in strongly at the end. Tart, but tasty!

Pours a clear yellow with a touch of white head. Not too highly carbonated. Smells fairly non descript. Sweet and kinda boring. Tastes boring but very drinkable. Overall a pretty solid lager but nothing special. I think this is miscatagorized... O well, still an interesting one that i enjoyed

Poured on tap at the Portsmouth brewery into a pilsner style glass.

Very nice simple light orange and consistent throughout. Opqaue in appearance with a nice standard like white head and fluffy. Looks like a hefeweizen. Some minimal lacing while drinking. This beer also looks a little flat as well.

Bouquet is once again very closed, perhaps a faint lemon but that's about it.

Bready light malt in taste and spice. Does lean to clove in the mid palate, but a bigger bread punch on the finish and swallow. Feel is pretty good too almost crisp but balancing some good density.

Overall this is alright, but I know I've had better.

22oz bottle into a Augustiner Weissbier glass. Purchased in…April of 2011?

A – An aggressive pour produced rather short head which disappeared rather quickly, although it left lacing all down the side of the glass. A lovely golden color. A bit hazy as expected.

S – Grain, yeasty, a bit of citus in the nose.

T –More of a citric hop pucker than the aroma would predict. A long noble hop finish as well. Flavorful, but not massively so.

M – A heavier body than most , but medium body is still the best descriptor. Really lacking in carbonation for my taste.

O- I’m kind of underwhelmed. While the flavor was good for the style, the low carbonation made this a bit of a drag to drink. I truly don't remember how long I've had this bottle in the DBF, but maybe it is past its prime. I'll try a fresher one the next time I have an opportunity to do so.
