Poured from tap (new keg) into standard pint glass here at Two Bros Scottsdale. 1/2" head, dissipates slowly, lace sticks high up on glass, just a hint of caramel color in the lace.
Color is a deep burnished copper, clear, no haze. Served perhaps a little too cold, hard to find a nose at first. Someone who handled the glass before it was served had a fragrant lotion or perfume, makes it a bit hard to figure out which is beer and which isn't. After a while, it seems there's a slight malt note up front, hop finish.
Typical carbonation, not unusual, remains even 10 minutes into the tasting.
A pleasant beer, would have this again. Good for those who are acquiring a taste for the hoppier side of the beer universe.

Appearance: Dark amber in color with thick white head. Extremely dark for a wheat beer. Good Clarity.

Smell: Hoppy, citrus, light dank, light ammonia, tropical fruits.

Taste: Surprisingly light. Light malty sweetness, a little bit of chocolate. Similar hoppy characteristics as the smell.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, crisp, medium carbonation.

Overall: Unique take on the style. Decent hybrid, but I would have liked a little more pronounced wheat characteristics. Good enough to drink again, but I'm not sure I would seek it out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Brown, ok head.

Smell: Citrusy, mild.

Taste: Moderate citrus bitterness with a little bit of roasted malt and toast flavor.

Overall: Comes in a 12oz can and I like to support dark wheat beers, so I gave this a try. It's pretty forgettable, mostly tastes like a pale ale with a little more roasted flavor to it. Not particularly wheaty.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brownish amber with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head which settles into a patchy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus, grass, biscuit, and wheat. Upfront scent of hops with juicy citrus hints of grapefruit, orange, lemon zest, and pineapple. Earthy and grassy hop hints. Wheat and toasted malt with hints of biscuit, caramel, grains, and yeast. A kind of odd but good smell.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely juicy and earthy hop forward taste with notes of citrus, grass, and wheat malt. Juicy presence of citrus hops with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, and pineapple. Earthy notes of pine and grass. Wheat and toasty malt notes of caramel, biscuit, grains, and yeast. A pretty solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, slightly chewy, and smooth.

Overall: A pretty unique and solid twist on a wheat beer. Good juicy hops with a solid toasty malt backing.

More alley than Aristocat. A marketable beer but so are thousands of others.

A - Clear deep red/amber color. Nice 2 finger head white in color that was retained for a decent length of time. 4/5

S - Very heavy on the grapefruit. Very hoppy which fit the given description of the beer. Slight hint of wheaty graininess. 4/5

T - Tasted like it smelled. Very heavy on grapefruit and tropical flavors. Indistinguishable from many Pale Ales that I have had before so I did not really get the wheat. 3.5/5

M - Wheat shows up here nicely. Very smooth. Nice wet finish. 4.25/5

O - Good offering. Really very simple in it's tasting profile but a nice execution of brewing. Not what I expected but would order again. 3.75/5
