This was one of the regional offerings at Pints in Elmhurst,. They always seem to have a 2 Brothers on tap.

Served in a standard shaker, the beer is brown with ruddy notes and a beige head.
It has an aroma of Citra hops and a bit of caramel malts.

The taste is hoppy with the citra hops shinning through. There is some wheat and a bit a dark fruit and malts. It is very easy to session.

The mouth is slightly thick with a bit of coating.

All-in-all, a very enjoyable beer!

Appearance is deep gold, not quite as dark as the can would lead me to believe. Nose feature heavy grainy wheat notes. Ripe fleshy fruit comes through, notes of melon and citrus. Taste is mild in bitterness, big in hop flavor. Pine and melon are the dominate notes. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. Overall, easy drinking brew.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Nice clear, dark amber color with good carbonation. A thick, pale head with medium beading and decent retention, but little lacing.

Smell: HUGE hoppy aroma! Citrus notes and tropical fruit.

Taste: Very similar to the aroma. Citrusy and fruity with a slight maltiness at the finish from the wheat.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation and a light body make this surprisingly refreshing despite the dark malts.

Overall: Very enjoyable seasonal! I was really pleasantly surprised with this. Great, sessionable dark wheat ale that's big on hops. The only reason I didn't rate it higher was that the aroma and flavor is a little one-dimensional but if you like the dimension it's a great beer.

A - beige head tops a deeper brown colored ale; decent head retention and excellent lacing is left as the head fades
S - sweetn Citra hopped tropical nose with pineapple, mango, mandarin, passion fruit
T - oddly pleasant concoction of tropical notes of mango, mandarin, pineapple, passion fruit coupled with dark malt and wheat, while the yeast provided a nutty and spicy character. Nice complexity and the flavors keep me curiously coming back for more
M - thinner body, fairly refreshing, finishes dry, bitter, and spicy
O - definitely thinking outside the box here and by not limiting this beer to a particular style category it's like nothing I've ever had before. Glad I tried it but not so sure I'd get it again.

A very nice beer from Two Brothers.
Pours a lighter brown with a decent tan head.
The citras smell a bit on the piney side with a hint of grapefruit.
Only a small piney hoppiness in the taste to go along with a malty sweetness that must be from the wheat. They go very well together.
On the thinner side. Overall a very good,easy drinker.
