Pours a bright amber with light head, much darker than I'd have expected a wheat beer to look. Sweet with deeper malt character than I expected and a notable slightly bitter citrus finish. Enjoyed this one - see it more as a competitor to Lagunitas Lil' Sumpin Sumpin than to Gumballhead.

Orange color with a thin white head. From a bottle, yeast sediment on the bottom, the first bit was nice and clear. Fruity aroma, with a slight bit of noble hop character. Clean bitter finish. Not a lot of malt complexity, but not a dru finish, sweet at the end.

Great wheat beer, I'd buy more.

It's tasty enough. I would have wanted the wheat aspect to have come through a little more. Similar style to Gumball head but not as much citrus flavors. Hoppy with an easy drinkability. The 7%abv is not even noticeable.

The bottle is marked Batch 1

A- it poured a lovely golden straw color with a hint of orange. A 1 & 1/2 finger white foamy head formed and settled in nicely for the entire drink. Good lacing crept up the sides of my pint glass. It was a very pretty pint.

S- I could smell the grains & wheat notes right away. A bit of biscuit and a smudge of sweetness rounded the aroma out. I didn't really get any hop profile on the nose.

T- there are the hops! A herbal flavor hit me right upfront. It's heavy on the grains with the biscuit note and a mild sort of sweetness helping to balance the taste. A resin quality appeared in the tail end. It wasn't a hop bomb by any means, but it was rather hop forward. Tasty, but not really memorable. Personally, I thought that it could have used a bit of citrus to brighten it, but that could be just me.

M- the mouthfeel was medium. There was an abundance of carbonation, which made it very easy to drink. The finish was short to medium.

O- I would drink it again (especially on a warm summer day). But I'm rather excited to see if this new brewery tweaks this beer just a bit. I think as they refine the recipe, it could become something really wonderful.

L-clear, pretty copper color leaning amber. 2-3 fingers of fine suds that lingers a while. Good looking beer.

S-loads of hop aroma, piney, citrus, perhaps some pineapple/tropical fruits.

T-fairly bitter with some of the same notes as the aroma but a little greener tasting. The sweeter, caramel notes are there in the background and increasingly in the finish.

F-this feels a little more viscous than I'd like. It really sticks around which is not what I would expect from a hoppy, moderate strength wheat.

O-I like this beer and would have a couple but wouldn't buy a six. It looks and smells really great but is, perhaps, a little muddled when it comes to taste and heavier feeling than I'd like.
