750mL bottle, batch E!031

Pours a cloudy, golden body with 3 fingers of egg white head falls to a cap that lingers throughout consumption. Nose is mostly grass and other earth tones, as well as tart citrus (lemon). Lots of tart lemon, grass, wheat malt, Belgian yeast, even a little funk to this offering. Big and bold for a Pale Wheat Ale, and also fairly dry. Lighter bodied and a nice dose of carbonation gives a solid mouthfeel. An overall refreshing offering from Ithaca.

Batch E!035

A-Cloudy yellow, extremly carbonated but no lacing is left.

S-Lemons, citrus and some sourness.

T-Light and lemony. Some tartness from the wild yeast. There seems like some bitterness is there but not much.

M-Light and VERY carbonated.

O-Yet another great beer from IBC. Wasn't expecting the mild tartness but it was a pleasent suprise and twist on the American Pale Wheat Ale

I just read my review of the beer on draft, which I had down the street at my local. I'm still surprised to hear that it was referred to as a sour but it is a very interesting beer that I'm not sure how i'd classify it.

American Pale Wheat Ale would work a little better if it was American Pale Wheat Strong Ale. Almost like a wheaty Duvel. I like this beer a lot. Very pale colored beer and head. Very frothy head...all like Duvel. Flavor is also very belgiany (maybe from the wheat more than the yeast) but this beer is very good. I'll get it again.

Ppours a hazy, pale yellow color, with a nice white head. In the aroma, corriander, orange peel, and nice wheat notes. In the taste, corriander, orange peel dryness, earthy, and a cinnamon like end. A small, spicey bite with a medium bodied mouthfeel, and a dry corriander and cinnamon like aftertaste. Quite dry, and nice spices, not to shabby.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, batch E!015(says copyright 2008 on the bottle). Pours hazy golden amber color with a fairly dense 2-3 finger white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some slight spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of big grape, lemon, apricot, earth, tart apple, herbal, wheat, bread, hay, and funk. Some pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of grape, lemon, apricot, apple, herbal, coriander, earth, funk, grass, and hay. Lingering notes of grape, lemon, apricot, grass, hay, and herbal on the finish for a while. A lot of malty flavors with good complexity; and no cloying sweetness. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed at all on the finish. Overall this is a damn nice imperial wheat ale. Nice complexity and flavor balance; and extremely smooth to sip on. This has held up well for the age. Really enjoyable stuff.

Beer is a very attractive hazy gold with an ivory head. Smell is of tangy sourdough bread. Taste opens with an orangey-citrus punch and finishes with sour cherry/lemon and alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is good; it's pleasantly carbonated. Overall, a very nice beer. It's big and assertive and not very subtle, but it's not trying to be. A good summer time beer.
