Six pack acquired at a Denver liquor store.

Pours thin, similar to an American lager, vaguely cloudy. Not much head.

Nose - not much.

Palate - an American wheat, strangely hopped?

Mouthfeel is negligible, aftertaste is nasty- grassy, vaguely sour.

Purchased this bottle in Denver on a trip, with a bottle date of 4-5-12. A little out of date but poured into my beer goblet with a swirl.

Appearance: A nice orangish opaque beer due to the yeast suspension. This one has a few larger specks that may be due to the age of the bottle.

Smell: Not terribly strong in the scent category. I get a vague wheat, some spiciness I suspect from the hops and yeast. A light citric note as well.

Taste: This is a thirst quencher. A more pronounced wheat in the taste, with the other flavors noted in the smell. As suspected, I think this may be a little beyond its best. Not bad, but not great either. I will hunt down another bottle.

Mouthfeel: The suspended yeast add to the solidity of the mouthfeel. The carbonation is OK as is the light to medium body.

Overall: I wish I had not let this one sit so long. This one is supposed to be really good and I found it only ok.

Bottle enjoyed in Fort Collins, but not at the brewery. Nice looking wheat, clear and glowing gold. Not overly complex, but the flavors are crisp, clean, and vibrant. Black pepper, grass, and lemon peel mingle beautifully with the crackery wheat. A hint of herbal bitterness keeps it dry and interesting. Quality, easy going, low impact beer with just enough oomph to stand up to the fish taco that I paired it with.

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a hazy deep golden color. A Frothy white head sits on top and dissipates slowly to a chunky film. Loads of soapy sticky lacing. The beer smells slightly sweet with traces of malt grains and maybe even faint orange peel. The taste is very clean and balanced. Sweet malts hit first, followed by a mellow, faint hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with a clean finish.

Overall, a very solid wheat beer. Very sessionable and clean tasting.

On tap poured into a 4 oz sampling glass

A - Poured a yellow-orange, unfiltered color leaving a short head (some froth). Average carbonation.

S – A light scent of sweet citrus and banana.

T - A taste of sweet malt and biscuits followed by some spiciness with a slightly earthy finish.
M – Medium body that remains wet throughout the tasting experience.

D – One of the sweeter wheat beers lacking the spicy coriander that some beers seem to focus on. Very refreshing and on the light side as far as filling me up. The mouthfeel is of a medium-bodied beer. Interesting.
