a: This was a murky, muddy wheat color. It poured with a thick, medium sized white head.

s: Grassy, lemony hops; earthy wheat; and some estery, floral bananas.

t: Some sweet but subdued tropical fruit held in check by grassy lemon rind and earthy wheat. As it warms the wit yeast esters come into play.

m: Medium body with light carbonation.

o: I wish I would have had more than one small glass. Interesting for sure, a lot of diffetent flavors coming together pretty well.

Serving type: growler

16oz served in a pint glass
On tap at Wilmington Iron Hill 8/24/12

A: Pours a golden yellow color. Only a faint line of bright white. Leaves some lacing sheets.

S: Smells of lemongrass and wheat. And some yeast strains.

T: I get a lot Belgian yeast character. Spice: coriander, clove, etc. it's strange though. Don't know if it's the Grains of Paradise but it's a slightly off flavor.

M: Light to medium.

I had this on tap at Lancaster during Hop Attack -the release of Kryptonite '12. Served in a goblet chilled.

The color is deeply hazed golden with a thin cap of ivory. The bead is tiny and lace sticks well with carbonation visible. The smell is very fruity, lemony and zesty with some of the esters of the yeast present which gives a nice ripe banana accent. The smell is more floral than fruity as it warms. Mouthfeel is light with some body from the wheat and yeast with moderately high carbonation and mild bitterness with tangy zest of hops adding a nice amount of acidity and spice.

The taste is fresh and citrus tinge with lemony hop flavor combined with the slight tropical notes of yeast which has a banana element with mild toasted tinge from the wheat and malt. I like the way the Sorachi ace works with the yeast flavor which is a little spicy but more zesty with each sip. Overall this is a very quaffable beer for the strength, I would have guessed 5 or 5.5%, this is a highly drinkable stronger than average wheat with pretty substantial hop flavor - a nice juxtoposition between wheat and hops.

Served on-tap at the Lancaster location.

A - Pours hazy golden orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving light streaks of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of lemon zest, lemongrass, spicy yeast, chewy wheat, and grassy hops. A touch of alcohol creeps in toward the end of the glass.

T - Starts off with the chewy wheat quickly giving way to a mix of lemongrass and lemon rind, spicy yeast, and plenty of grassy hops. The booze is light at first becoming stronger as it comes up to room temperature. The finish is a mix of chewiness, spice, and hop bitterness that lingers on the pallet for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Chewy, hoppy, feel with plenty of it lingering through the finish.

O - Pretty good stuff. I like how it had a good amount of spice yet it wasn't overpowering. It still had plenty of hops to keep me interested for the duration of the glass.

On tap @ Iron Hill Lancaster on 7/16/11 during their Christmas In July event. Served in a tulip glass.

Pours a clear copper, topped with a thin layer of bright-white head. This retains with some foamy edges and more of a wispy look across the center, before leaving back a frothy cascade of lacing that quickly slides down the sides of the glass. The aroma sits with some strength in the nose, with a mix of grainy sweetness, lemon, more juicy tropical fruit notes, and a deep spiciness. This definitely puts some flavor out into the nose.

The taste is crisp on the palate, with sweet grains, a light citric bitterness, zesty lemon, and lingering spice. The grains of paradise come out across the back of the profile, adding to the fruity ripe tanginess of this. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a lively crisp feel to the carbonation that matches up well with the flavor profile here and dances all of that character around in the mouth. Alcohol is very well hid here and I honestly probably wouldn’t have guessed that this was close to 7% ABV.

This was nice, with a well done blend of malt, fruit, and spices all coming together into a complex yet still accessible bundle of flavors. The crispness and well hid ABV of the body only add to the overall drinkability of this. I’d love to see the return of this one every summer here!
