Into a large imperial pint, pours a murky golden color with a nice one in ch white head. Some lacing in long arches. The aroma has some bready malt notes and hints of lemony hops.

Taste is quite refreshing, just what I needed after a hot, humid day. Nice hops, peppery, a bit of lemon, the grains sweet enough, briefly bready, but a little thin. The body feels a bit thin, but the carbonation is decent. in all, an easy quaffer, but a bit pricey for that. (456 characters)

(Served in a weizen glass) best before 11/10
A- This beer pours a clear golden yellow body with a big carbonation of racing tiny bubbles and a spongy snow white head pops.
S- The fresh grain aroma has a slight sweetness with a faint honey malt quality that grows as the beer warms.
T- The slight tartness blends into a fresh pale malt flavor with a yeasty note giving way to a green hint in the finish. As the beer opens up there is a bit of an oat and then raw grain note with the pale malt. The finish has a soft sulfury quality to a green Noble hop snap.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a slight chewy quality and a crisp finish.
D- This beer has a great fresh flavor with a slight sweetness that adds more freshness. The tartness adds some nice contrast with some nice support from the yeast. (816 characters)

20oz pint, another awesomely unexpected find on tap in Wild Rose Country - Craft Beer Market in Cowtown, specifically.

This beer appears a rather cloudy medium golden amber hue, with one finger of tightly foamy, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which seeps away quietly and slowly, leaving an uneven, low-lying berm of lace around the glass.

It smells of grainy pale and wheat malts, some sweet, fruity booze esters, and mild earthy, leafy hops. The taste is sweet, indistinctly grainy malt, a touch of wet cardboard, that petrol essence so reminiscent of good aged Rieslings, and more soft earthy, weedy hops.

The bubbles are well restrained, and mostly inert throughout, the body a near medium weight, yet a bit watery, and mostly smooth, the uptick in Euro-booziness providing a mild hiccup or two. It finishes quite warm, and somewhat sweet, though not all alcohol-borne - the fruity malt likewise contributes to the sensation.

A decent spring beer, kind of on the light side, helping hoist us out of the lingering winter, with some gentle sturm und drang, from the headwaters nation for the style. Easy drinking, long wooden table sort of quaffing, this one is. (1,173 characters)

Enjoyed on-tap at Chancey Smith's. An orangey colour with a good mouthfeel. A sourness that's well amlted, a good bitterness, some cloves,pepper. I enjoyed the flavours of others of this style, including Creemor, far better. Still a good drinkability. (251 characters)

A - Nice swing-top with a depiction of a happy guy with a metal or ceramic pitcher of beer. Dig the sideburns! This is a cloudy carrot orange brew (I swirled the yeast in) with a healthy head of beige foam. I served this in a pilsener glass, and the head was way to much for the skinny glassware to handle... should have used an oversized weizen glass.

S - Yeasty and fresh, like a loaf of white bread straight out of the oven. Reminds me of those doughy biscuit things they serve with honey butter at Texas Roadhouse. Glazed donuts.

T - Bread dough with a spritz of sweet orange citrus. Slightly tangy, but this is a very sweet and savory brew.

M - Light bodied, soft, creamy, and silky. A touch of carbonation reminds us that this is indeed a beer, but it's really understated and gentle. The finish is sweet, yeasty, and clean. This is as fresh and clean as a laundry detergent advertisement.

D - Perfect session beer! Creamy, but still light in body. Interesting and flavorful enough to keep ya interested, but not enough to distract you from the party. Would be good with a brat! (1,088 characters)

I dive into this on good faith from the crew at Hacker-Pschorr knowing they make some great brews yet this is an odd style. Poured from a 500ml. swingtop bottle into a large wine glass. Yes, we'll just call it a mug with a stem I say.

A firm pop is a pleasant start, particularly given the style guidelines. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin white cap. Not much retention but holds a surface ring and shows decent carbonation. A second topping off yields notably more lacing.

Aroma of neutral grains and some light hops with a bit of lemon and orange accompanying some fresh hay. Bit musky with an intriguing level of depth.

Flavor matches the nose largely, and is somewhat thinner in body than anticipated on the front of the palate. Lemony hops and a light sweetness continue, followed with a grainy close that offers moderate lingering notes again of lemon and grain. Lightly coarse in texture and easy drinking. Not as far afield as I thought as for the style. Quite nice and hope to explore the style further. (1,023 characters)

Pours a dirty golden honey color with a meringue like white head that left some lacing on the side of the glass. The aroma is yeasty with some light peppery spice, it also has a doughy munich malt aroma as well. The taste is of a doughy munich malt base with heavy yeast presence. The yeast doesn't seem to add much flavor as it does in a Hefe. The yeast flavor is of light spice with some clove and pepper. There is a touch of lemon that adds a little fruitiness to the brew. The body is big and heavy from it being unfiltered and unpasteurized and lightly carbonated; finishes lightly sweet from the malt presence. A big heavy style, feels like bread in a glass. The flavors are light and fairly sweet so it is easy to drink. Nothing exceptional but has a nice rustic quality to it. (784 characters)

Pours a cloudy golden color with two fingers of dense white head. The head eventually settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of lacing is left on the glass. The aroma consists of bready malt and a light citrus note. Almost like lemon. Some grassy aroma from the hops. The flavor is on the sweet side. Could use some bitterness from the hops to balance things out. The yeast adds some mild clove elements in the finish and saves this beer. Light body, watery, and uninteresting texture. A refreshing beer and a nice change of pace from wheat beers. My bottle had some age on it and maybe the hops faded. Have to try a fresher one. (629 characters)

A=Nice dark, golden color; two finger head lasted over a minute.

S=Nice moderate aroma with decent hop aroma and a slight sweetness.

T=Nice hops flavor with a bit of bite...noticed a bit of aftertaste. A bit of sweetness as well with a hint of carbonation. Hint of citrus as well.

M=Nice...smooth and refreshing.

D=Very drinkable...the sweetness prohibits it from being a beer that you would chug, but would stand up well with a meal or by itself on a hot day. (464 characters)
