I had this on-tap at Churchkey in DC. Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color with a layer of white head that fades to a rind around the pour.

Smell: I'm getting tropical fruit, pickles, and a mild vinegar note. Very light.

Taste: Like the smell but a bit less tart. Fruity with some mixed vegetables and pickles. I am getting some passion fruit. The finish is fruity and crisp.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with aggressive carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This was a really weird beer for me. I didn't enjoy the other flavors that I was getting. I wouldn't have another.

Thanks to drabmuh. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin white head and some spots of lacing. Thin cap. The nose carried some light grain and a touch of stone fruit. Flavor is very grainy with some tannins in there. Far too tannic. Light body. Crisp. Just okay.

A- hazy light golden brew with a rocky off white head. Head retention is poor, and the lacing is decent.

S- citrus! Grapefruit, clementine, lemon. There is some grain in there as well.

T- light wheat and malt with an astringent grapefruit finish. Not too much going on.

M- it's light with lively and prickly carbonation, which it should be.

O- it's a pale wheat ale, plain and simple.
