Cloudy hazy - what you'd expect from a wheat beer. Decent lacing.
Smells like a hoppy wheat beer. Nothing spectacular but not bad at all.
Tastes a bit hoppier than I'd expect, but does not overwhelm the wheat by any means.
Feels smooth, not overly carbonated like a lot of other wheat beers I've had.
overall, if you're looking for that blend between wheat and hops, this is a fine start.

Ophelia Hoppy Wheat Ale - Breckenridge Brewery. Poured from the bottle int oa Weia] two and a half finger thick white soapy head, web-like, and hazy golden body.

Smells like grassy malts, floral hops, and a touch of citrus.

The taste here is pretty much the same as the aroma. Nice and easygoing, but full of flavor.

Mouthfeel is clean and smooth. No lingering elements here.

Overall, a 4.25 Ophelia Hoppy Wheat Ale - Breckenridge Brewery. Another spring hopeful I've experienced this winter.
