look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pour/Appearance:
Golden in color with tiny chunks of unfiltered yeast floating about. Thin head that dissipates at a moderate pace; lacing quickly disappears.

Smell: Banana, with a strong wheat smell.

Mouthfeel: Notable carbonation, a light beer.

Taste: Slight citrus with a nearly overwhelming earthy wheat flavor. The unfiltered nature is very evident.

Though I am a fan of suspended chunks of yeast, and wheat beers in general, the taste was a slightly too heavy towards the wheat. I think the brewer hit what they were aiming for, though, and I can respect that.

A - Pale, straw yellow, fairly clear, and quite bubbly topped with a thin white head with decent retention and fabulous lacing. <4.5>

S - Bananas and clove with a slight tart, citrus aroma. Overall very sweet. <4.5>

T - Playfully sweet and spicy at the front of the pallet that gives way to a hearty malt backbone with a slight alcohol flavor, but the spices remain constant. The hops make a brief and subltle appearance to clean out the finish. Sticky remnants of hop flavor linger in the aftertaste, giving way to the spices and a faint return of banana sweetness. <5>

M - Creamy, medium body, carbonation is very subtle. <5>

O - The clean finish and subtle sweetness makes this beer very drinkable and the complex, spicy flavor begs another sip. One of the better wheat beers out there. <5>

Picked up a sixer from Total Wine in late June for $7.99. Best by 9/5/12.

Beer poured a cloudy golden color with a decent white head that dissipated quickly.

Nose is of wheat and grass and not much else.

Taste has a nice wheat backbone with a wonderful accent of lemongrass.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a nice carbonation that makes it refreshing.

Overall this is one of the better Wheat Ales i have tried. Odell does a great job with making true session beers flavorful. Great brew for around the pool when it is 105 out!

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.
