Slightly hazy orange with barely a white head.
Some caramel and apple aromas.
Taste the hops and wheat of the beer, along with the caramel and fruit.
Mouthfeel is alright except for a peculiar aftertaste.
Overall this beer is slightly under the mark of okay.

A - A hazy orange color with just a 1/4 of head.
S - Well wheat is predominant but I do smell some citrus hop goodness and malts.
T - Not that bad has a very balanced hop profile, easy drinking wheat flavor and a nice smooth finish. Maybe it's because they labeled it as a "harvest ale" and everyone expected an uber hop experience idk.
M -Light to medium, rather smooth easy to drink.

Overall it's actually very similar to the hoppy lager in that it does have a decent amount of hops and a smooth taste. Yep.

Pulled out of the fall 12 pack. Overall, it's a gently hoppy wheat beer with a mild, floral melon hop taste and crisp citrus kiss in the finish. It's very drinkable, and I wish they knocked down the ABV a bit to make a better session beer. A little research shows this is a Sorachi Ace ale. While I certainly wouldn't mind a bigger hops character, but it's a fine beer and I'll be drinking the other from this mixed box.
