Hazy golden. Big bubbly and frothy white head. Retention is better than average. Lacing is abundant and web-like. This beer smells of fresh sage, hay, sweet lemon and musty yeast. Pretty good. Mouthfeel is a compromise between smooth/creamy and carbonated, if that makes sense. It's 2 parts creamy and 1 part carbonated. Body is approaching medium-full. The taste is unique, but good. Sweet lemon peel. Floral hops. A little pepper. Solid wheat malt base. Good. Interesting concoction and quite enjoyable.

Color is a solid cloud of opaque yellow, nice crunchy off-white head thats tall and substantially thick, barely fades, but as it finally does settle it stays at about a eighth of an inch the entire glass with tons of thin wirey globs of lace that lay all the way down the glass as well. Quite a nice sight to behold. Smell is a wickedly super nice solid roasted toasty wheat grain with subdued sweetness, my oh my its nice! The toasty sense fades some as it warms and gains a bit more of a light citrusy sweetness. Taste is mellow wheat, quite toasty and freshly sweet like that of bagel sour dough up front and gains more of a citrusy finish thats very dulled and fainting easy dryness of grains and soft malts that lingers. Super fresh and clean, mellow medium body with a nice little texture from the wheat that gives it a real nice quality and makes for some super easy drinkin'! By far the best Wheat Ale I've had, refreshingly mellow, solid playful texture, and just plain Ol' good!
I'm Amazed & Amused of this Hazed & Confused.

Note: 9-6-2003 after the Autumn Brew Review some of us met at TH for a recap of the fest and a beer or two. Upon this offering the H & C seemed to much more like a hefe with more predominant lemon both in nose and taste. I liked it better the first time, loved the toastyness, but that was all but diminished. So no change in the numbers for me cuz the first was just so lovely. But would get tweeked otherwise.

Not to be mistaken in the mind with Dazed & Abused...or is it Unphased & Obtuse?..whatever...
...and further confusion arises, in my mind at least, by this
freshly coined and increasingly applied appelation, "American Wheat Ale". Does it mean a lighter kind of weizen, bearing some similarities to Belgian witbier, without the particular banana/clove character of the former or the orange/coriander of the later, being still fresh, fruity, and refreshing, much like Bell's Oberon? I say it does...and as for this one...
Appearance: solid orange color, perfectly opaque, with a tight white head.
Aroma: pleasant and fruity, but not too outstanding.
Taste: fresh, with a big orange and smallish spice flavor, fairly light on the tongue, but not too. Generous mouthfeel, takes up occupation and spreads happiness through all corners of the senses. Thoroughly refreshing, well-rounded, perfectly balanced, sitting very comfortably on the palate.
If they have any trouble draining this one, it won't be my fault!
