Late Check-in of this beer from Town Center Tap House, Daleville, VA. July 1, 2014. Lost in the archives... Day of the unfortunate US loss to Belgium in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

A good wheat ale. Had a lot of (probably too much) Oberon when I was in Ann Arbor last summer!

Pours a brilliant bright orange. Nice white head. Aroma is pretty standard for a wheat ale...a little weak, but no real complaints...maybe there's a sort of popcorn smell I'm picking up - yeasty elements as well. Taste is some orange with rather bland malts. Feel is nice- highly carbonated..medium bodied. Overall, seems to be more of a summer easy sipper. Not a lot going on to like or dislike really.

This one pours a very cloudy blonde color with a nice white head that is relatively thick and settles moderately slowly while leaving nice lacing down the glass.

The noise is sweet malts, bread, cumin, back pepper and a touch of pine.

The taste is an exceptional one with similar notes to the nose and sweet malts, bread, cumin, back pepper and a touch of pine. Great balance and very excellent overall flavor. I love it.

The mouthfeel is rich but not too rich and it is just right for this style.

Overall another fine example of a rather exceptional beer.

This is an above average beer, it pours a nice golden color with a fluffy white head, and there is a descent amount of Lacing left on the pink glass. This is worth a try.
