look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: A very clear, honey-tinted straw color. Strikingly clear. Nice foamy bubbles on top of the beer.

S: Not very strong. Grain and husks with a touch of citrus.

T: Stronger on the hop flavor than I had anticipated. Starting off with semi-sweet bready malts leading into the hop flavors of lemon and orange and finishing off with a grassy and bitter flavor that lasts for awhile

M:medium bodied with a nice carbonation.

O: Not bad. More of a hoppy beer made with wheat than a straight up american wheat which is more of what I was expecting, not that I am disappointed. It has a relatively lower IBU, 25 I believe from the bottle, but it seems like it could be a bit higher on the finish. I could see buying from time to time but would definitely drink one if offered.

Semi-opaque golden, with a light head of white carbonation. Lace didn't really appear.

Nose is caramel malts, toasty and bready. Nice.

Taste is similar, with more toasty malts, caramel, and a swift kick of hops at the finish. A delightful and full-flavored wheat beer, and one I'll revisit.

Awful from the first sip. Nothing noteworthy to the eye or the nose. The taste is just odd, feels a bit fizzy. Drank about 5 oz. and used the rest to clean the hotel sink drain.

Triton just started bottling this a couple weeks ago.

This beer pours a light bodied honey gold in color with just a slight white lacing around the glass that quickly disappeared. It is very bright and does resemble honey or a honey tea quite a bit. The nose is pretty standard for a pale wheat. There is slight pale malt aromas, a touch of honey, with an ever so slight yeastiness. There isn't reall much to it. I definitely don't get any Amarillo and the yeast character is muted. It's ok. It drinks really light in body with aggressive carbonation. It has a slight bite to it. Overall this is a pretty average wheat. I would have preferred some hop character as well as traditional yeast characteristics. That said, I could see others really enjoying this during the summer. It would be very session able and great in warm weather.

For an American Wheat it's very pleasant to drink. It was a little more hoppy than I was expecting for a wheat beer and it has a slight IPA like feel in the mouth. Very good taste and flavor but personally I could have used a little more. I'm familiar with very flavorful beers and I enjoy ones that have a bit more weight to them. This would be a good summer session beer.

Overall it's a good beer but there is nothing that really distinguishes it from other craft wheats that I've had; if you do find yourself at Triton I recommend the Rail Splitter IPA.
