Big foam on the first few attempts at a pour, but it settled down eventually. Handsome amber color. Quite sharply carbonated. Kind of a pulpy, cardboard aroma.

I guess the idea is a hoppier sort of dark wheat bock. It's not very strong tasting and the body is on the watery side. Spritzy mouthfeel. Somewhat sweet but that seems to be knocked down by the club soda intensity. This reminds me of bran muffins. The hops are rather herbal and not as aromatic as you'd hope. Slight bitter aftertaste.

Interesting but rather peculiar brew. Worth experimenting with, but this seems coarse and diluted in flavor. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at the Fish Tale brewpub in Everett.

Serving type: bottle

New beer. New (to me) brewery. 'Alpine-style wheat ale' per the label.

Overcarbonated. Took me 4-5 pours to finish the bomber. Head finally settled to a 1/4" white foam. Slightly cloudy golden color.
Smells of weak grassy and spicy hops.
Similar spicy elements follow through in the flavor. Tastes almost like some 'white IPAs' that I have had. There is just something lacking, maybe more wheat presence?
Fairly flat, but not detrimental to mouthfeel.
Wouldn't return to this beer, though it could just be me.
