I could've went about 2 other categories with this, but as their web site is useless, I took my best guess..

Pours a hazy apricot with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Good lacing & minimal head retention, pretty murky at the end

S: Some fruittyness & bready notes, & honey notes

T: Apricots & pears, plus, slight honey sweet notes as well. There's a bit of Golden delicious apple as this warms, slight brown sugar sweetness, some bready notes as well as well, some dryness & slight yeast/booze bite lingering underneath as this warms. Finishes with apple sweetness,a touch of grainyness & lemony hops

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation

Drank very easy, this is easily the best beer I've had from these guys

Poured thinly into a signature pilsner glass.

A - Simply Golden.

S- Hoppy and like a good Pilsner.

T. Thin but like a good wheat beer similar to a good basic budweiser, but of 6.0% abv.

M - Has the viscosity of 3.2 beer, not much carbonation at all. The high viscosity is thin.

O - This beer wasn't bad, then again I am biased towards quadrupel.

Serving type: bottle

There is no telling how old this beer is because the store I bought it from was not a craft beer specialist and there is no freshness date. To be fair I Will overlook flavor characteristics that speak to age. Based on the last day this was reviewed, this beer was probably bottled in late 2013.

Beer looks good for an American Wheat: 22 oz bomber, bottle conditioned. Pours to buff head that lasts, hazy orange -gold color. Aroma is grainy-malty-fruity with some hops evident. Flavor is mild and biscuity with a slightly sweet, fruity finish. Mouthfeel is just right. Overall a pleasant quaff.

The nice thing about bottle-conditioned beers is that they tend to have a more stability for long term storage, or so I'm told. This one certainly held up to what I believe to be about a year or more sitting on a shelf at room temperature. There were some minor cheesy hop/cardboard type flavors in there, but overlooking those, it was a good experience.

Had this beer at a festival in OKC and liked it so much that I had to get a bottle. The beer pours a hazy orange color with a finger of white foamy head that retains well. The aroma is strong with sweet malt and floral hops. The taste starts with sweet wheat malt and some citrusy hops, then becomes floral. The mouthfeel is nice and balanced and clean. This is a very good wheat beer.

Found this 22Oz bottle at BeirGarten in Jenks, OK. I think this one may be best described at as an American Pale Wheat ale as it lacks the banana esters and clove phenols.

Pours between amber and honey-gold with two fingers of fizzy off-white head made of bubbles of variable size. Lot of "snap, crackle, and pop" going on here. Only scant lace remains. First pour was fairly clear and clean. The second was very hazed as the thick yeast cake dislodged in chunks from the bottom of the bottle.

The aroma is probably it's best attribute. My first impression was caramel apple. Fruity esters and caramel maltiness with abumdant bread crust notes are nice. Some straw as well. Very grainy and earthy.

Taste is slightly sweet and apple-like with some tartness followed by massive grassy wheat and breadcrust flavors. Caramel malts are there although slight. Very wheat heavy. Seems moderately hopped which pulls back on the reins to slow the wheat cart down a bit before it crashes at the bottom of the hill. Grassy and dry slight alcohol finish leaves an aftertaste that a glass of water graciously flushes away.

The carbonation is a bit off here. Too fizzy and no sticking like soda. Light to medium bodied. Not bad, just "hum-dee-dum."

Overall, I call this beer "okay." At first whiff, I thought this might be something terrific. With some tweaks and balance, I think it could be.

In the glass this beer has a nice hazy yellow look to it. It does not pour with a lot of head, and what head is there has small bubbles and dissipates quickly. The smell has a hint of wheat lemons and hint of orange peel. The taste is very watery, but leaves the mouth with a clean finish. The flavors are pretty weak with a hops and wheat being the only ones I can taste. I do not taste any fruit or sweetness at all. For those of you looking for a bitterness in the beer wait for the after taste. You get a bit of IPA on the finish. Overall, I would say this beer would best be paired with a relaxing weekend afternoon. Cheers.
