look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12 oz. brown long neck with a bottled on date jet printed on the glass.
Appearance: Dense white head stays for a while on top of the hazy pale orange brew.
Smell: Sweet malt, yeast and bit earthy, fruity and rustic.
Taste: Crisp spicy fermented wheat with an restrained hop bitterness, some yeast and fruit follows with some lingering grain. Touch of floral sweetness, perhaps a by-product of the yeast, and a mild tartness towards the end.
Notes: This is by-far one of the better America wheat beers around. One could say it is comparable to Widmer or Pyramid if not better. Flavourful yet on the clean side and very well balanced. This sample was decanted gently to leave most of the sediment behind, though if you want more of yeasty nutty character swirl the yeast in.
Serving type: bottle
