On tap at town hall tap.

Really, I think someone slipped me a Belgian. I've only had a wheatwine or two but this was not what I had in mind. Pours an inert, headless orange. The taste has tripel all over it, with an unwelcome bitterness and a strong phenol presence. Sweetness lingers in the background but it just muddles the storyn. Not as hot with booze as expected. Not to mention, would have liked a touch more carbonation.

A miss from a can't miss brewery, and a real bummer considering the number of sensational labels available at tht. No worry guys, this BA still loves you, just not this drink.

On tap at Town Hall Tap. The beer arrives a cloudy pale orange color. The head is a quarter inch in height, and recedes quickly into minimal lacing. The aroma is of apricot, orange, and a hint of cherry. It smells much more like an IPA that a wheat beer, but it still smells good. The taste is fruity and hoppy like the aroma, but with a yeasty finish that has a rotten vegetable quality that really takes away from the beer. The mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this is a rare miss from Town Hall. I won't be ordering this beer again.

Color is darker golden orange. Pours a white head.

Aroma: Really sweet. A lot of honey and wheat flavors. A little bit of spice. A big beer. Kind of dry.

Taste: Very sweet. A lot of yeast flavors. Kind of reminds me a Belgian. Dry grape skins and fruit flavors. Dry spice and wheat. A little bit of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, but dry. Fuller bodied. Medium carbonation. Ends dry, but cloying. Kind of sticky.

Overall, not my favorite town hall beer. It didn't have too much flavor for how big of a beer it was. A small glass was enough for me.
