Poured a cloudy golden body with large head and some lace that stuck around and has an aroma that is citric and spice with faint yeast/orange twang. Beer is smooth, easy to drink, the yeast is there and adds a touch of sweetness and fluff in the beer, also get hints of tropical fruits but mostly a citric, hoppy body mixed with spice (to bastardize as done before - imagine your typical wheat beer with extra hops). Pretty good and had on a hot summer day and it hit the spot.

Served in a Shaker pint at Blue Mountain Brewery (Afton, VA).

A: Hazy light chestnut brown with creamy tight bubbled 1/2-finger head with excellent retention and multiple rings of lace down the glass.

S: Aroma is a combination of spicy and fruity yeast esters with a tangy wheat edge topped off with a load of citrus and floral hops notes.

T: The flavor doesn't work as well as the aroma as the intense hoppiness with pineapple and grapefruit notes clash a bit with the tangy wheat and the heavy fruity yeast esters. It almost tastes like a Belgian ale with the variety of flavors. The alcohol is not very perceptible and just lends a little sweetness. There is a light graininess from pilsner malt I assume.

M: Creamy with medium body but easy to drink with the low carbonation. Very smooth and deceptive kick.

O: I can see why some people would really like this beer as it is a melange of different flavors, but they don't fit together well for me with too much yeast character and a strange interplay between the estery nature of the beer and the citrusy and floral American hopping.

On tap at Blue mountain.

Appearance-Yellow and hazy
Smell- Fruity tropical hops
Taste: Fruity tropical hops again with a perfect amount of malt balance.

Overall: Awesome beer, not sure if it follows the style as it comes off more as some sort of hoppy american wheat ale. We stopped at multiple breweries on the brew ridge trail and this is the one beer that blew me away. It sucked when I went inside the brew house to buy some bottles to find out they only have it on draft. If you like A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale or the wild version you will love this.
