12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/15/2015. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pepper, pine, caramel, brown sugar, wheat, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pepper, pine, caramel, brown sugar, wheat, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of piney/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pepper, pine, caramel, brown sugar, wheat, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate amount of dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hoppy dark wheat ale style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

12 ounce bottle into a weizen glass.

Pours a medium copper, a little cloudy with a one finger head and some foamy cling. Smell is malt, yeast. some floral hops, caramel, a little musty grain. Taste also leads with malt, then caramel, a more distinct wheat flavor than the nose. Hop bitterness comes through on the back end. Smooth, creamy, good level of carbonation.

This is a very good example of the style. Lots of flavor and enjoyable to drink. Well worth a purchase.
