Got a growler fill of this about a week ago, finally got some time to sit down and enjoy it. Served into a SA Perfect Pint glass. Nice pop upon opening.

A - Worcester's Bravest pours a very hazy straw color with a decent sized foamy white head. A touch of lacing along the glass.

S - Nose is mostly made up of some slight citrus notes with some yeast notes. A bit of grain in there as well.

T - A bit of orange peel with a slight hop bitterness. Light sweetness and a bit of wheat component as well.

M - Light bodied and highly carbonated. Boderline watery.

O - Refreshing, but rather bland beer. I've enjoyed the other Wormtown beers I've had, this one however was rather disappointing.

On tap at Peppercorns

A - Nice hazy straw appearance with a fluffy one finger head that left medium lacing down the sides of the glass.

S - Very, very light citrus notes as well as yest. Not picking up on much of anything.

T - Watery citrus resulting in what seems like almost a "held back" or muted taste. Kind of bland.

M - Watery, light carbonation.

D - Goes down easy but but almost like a generic macro brew. Pretty shocked at this one by Wormtown. I guess I can't love them all.

Had on tap @ Prezo in Milford, MA.

A: Huge head forces a long pour, big fluffy and white, over hazy golden wheat yellow color.

N: Nose has some wheat, a little fruit (almost blueberry like), Belgian wit spices aromas, toasty even. A little banana and Belgian wheat malts.

T: Also starts with toasty bready malts, some bitterness with a touch of earthy hops, saison like dry flavors, a little wheat and more wit like spices, Belgian malts, and a touch of yeast. A slight banana and lemon flavors as well.

M: Medium to lighter body with good carbonation.

F: Slightly bitter on teh finish, with spicy hop, long dry saison spice taste, some toasty and Belgian malts, more yeasty bready malts too, some rustic saison dry flavors as well.

4.01/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Completely hazy with suspended yeast, straw-golden color with a medium density head that settles to a thin skim with decent but minimal lacing.

S - Slightly spicy and wheaty with a mild orange peel note. All are subtle but inviting.

T - Like the smell this is wheaty, orangey and yeasty but very light. Ethanol in the finish balances with the yeast to end remarkably cleanly, encouraging another sip.

M - Small, crisp bubbles in this effervesent beer nucleate on the tongue rather than in the glass making the mouthfeel exceptionally light with a clean, neutral finish.

D - When this beer is at it's coldest the carbonation can seem a little sharp but as it warms, all limitations are self-imposed.
