3.99/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a mini mug.

Appearance: Cloudy sunset yellow, apple juice-like color. Looks like it was unfiltered, or at best, not filtered very heavily. Thin foam head with no visible carbonation through the glass. From the pour, not a bad beer, but nothing intense yet.

Smell: Oooh, man. Awesome. Banana bread and cloves, maybe sweet corn and pine. The nose is heavy and fruity, matches the appearance but does it one better by enticing me to take a sip, so I shall.

Taste: Yep, this is beer. The wheat flavor is much stronger here than in the scent, but it's not distracting. Questionable hops...there's something about this beer that isn't perfection to me; what that is, I can't put a finger on. As it stands, it's worth another taste.

Mouthfeel: Much like the scent, I am feeling the term "banana bread." Malty to the extreme, which works for this one (being a wheat beer and all). Goes down smooth but strong, and leaves a slightly earthy feeling afterwards. Also gut.

Drinkability: I'm not a big wheat beer guy, but I can't see any reason NOT to recommend this beer to a connoisseur. A bit heavy for me to take on a nightly basis, but then again, a taste that I could get used to.

This one is alright. Might be good to finish off an evening with, or as the only drink during a fireplace session. There's something soothing about this beer, and as such, I've gotta give it props.

4.02/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle purchased at the North Coast Co-op in Eureka, California.

Bright white, airy pillow of foam ascends rapidly as I pour. The head deflates after several minutes leaving no lace, but a curds and whey layer of foam on the surface of the brew. Body is luminous straw yellow.

Smell is a lemon pepper encrusted breadiness with some brighter, grassy notes springing in the background.

The taste kicks off with a bitter-sweet undertone that rises into a buttered bisquit sweetness. Aftertaste is an enjoyable rattle of hops on the tongue, and still that mild sweetness lingers.

Mouthfeel is light, as it should be, and plenty carbonated.

Refreshing and flavorful.
