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.
