Golden / yellow color with decent head and moderate carbonation. Floral, herbal, citrus aroma. Malt balance is great but there's one element that brings down the whole beer. Not quite sure what it is, but it tastes almost buttery (salty, honey, buttery) to us. This beer just came out, so it's fresh. Eh.

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.

Pours a hazy golden straw color with a small wispy white head that settles into a light ring.

The aroma has a light floral note with a hint of pepper. A touch of a musty perfumey note. Seems a bit odd but not unpleasant.

The beer has a substantial lemony flavor, some lemon rind bitterness and a bready wheat body. Kind of reminds me of that Sam Adams Coastal Wheat brew. Light grassy hop presence to balance the brew; some pepper notes as well.

The feel is light and crisp with active carbonation. Sweet on the palate and finishes with enough of a grassy bitter to balance the beer. Drinks well.

Overall, not a bad beer but not sure why this is a "harvest" beer. Reminds me more of a summer wheat ale.

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.
