Form the tall boy can in a snifter. This unique brew pours a chill hazed golden
color with a nice head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin spotty pool,
and displays some decent lacing. Nose of heavy citrus with lime and lemon zest
with a touch of grapefruit and herbal notes. Flavors lightly exceed the nose with
lemon zest and pith along with lime zest, heavy herbal notes of clove and other
spices, and subtle wheat notes. Nice mouth feel; medium light body, medium
high carbonation, and a bitter herbal hop and citrus finish.

Overall, not your standard cup of ale---unique, but a touch over the
top on the citrus and herbal notes.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 16 oz can into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a clear light yellow hue with moderate carbonation fueling a 1 inch bubbly white head with decent retention.
S: Citrusy with lemon, orange, tangerine, and grapefruit notes.
T: Citrus notes of lemon, orange, and tangerine. Fairly strong bitter notes, especially for style.
M: Light body. Light citrus sweetness. Moderately strong bitter notes that linger into the finish.
D: A hoppy wheat ale...not bad, but not great. The bitter hop notes are too strong for a wheat ale. Very much meh.

Pours a clear golden yellow color with a 1 finger head. Smel had citrus and lemon/lime with some cracked wheat. Taste was very fruity with a lemon/wheat finish. Mouth feel crisp and very citus forward while not being hoppy. Easy to drink a session wheay for me.

16 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 5/16/2018. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy medium golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lemon, lime, citrus peel/zest, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, white grape, mango, melon, guava, berry, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, citrus zest, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, lime, citrus peel/zest, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, white grape, mango, melon, guava, berry, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, lime, citrus peel/rind, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, white grape, mango, melon, guava, berry, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, citrus zest, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop/citrus astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering hop/citrus zest bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly crisp/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.3%. Overall this is an excellent hoppy wheat! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, citrus zest, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful for the ABV. Great Galaxy, Summer, Nelson showcase. Very juicy, vibrant, dank, and earthy hop complexity with balanced lemon/lime zest; solid pale/wheat malt backbone, with minimal residual sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example.

Pours a clear golden color. The head is 2 finger, white, quite frothy, great retention, and nice lacing on the glass.
The nose is very citrusy. I also get a slight malt background.
Taste - very interesting. I get a lot of citrus, but then, mixed in with that I get cloves and banana from the wheat. Damn good mixture.
Feel - Decent body. Kind of a creamy feel to it. There's a decent amount of hops and they do linger.
Overall this is a very tasty beer. Very well made and it combines hops and wheat very well, and brings both out in a great way.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a quickly-dissipating white head. Light citrus on the nose. Taste is orange, the telltale wheat bite, hints of lemon and spice as it warms up. Soft, light-medium, lightly carbonated body. Very easy drinking and refreshing.
