Notes: Are Wheat There Yet?, our hoppy Wheat Ale, is medium bodied with a hint of wheat and malt sweetness. Magnum and Galaxy hops contribute a slight bitterness balance of honey and malt sweetness. Late kettle additions of Nelson Sauvin and Kohatu hops add white grape, honeydew melon and passion fruit aromatics to this refreshing American Honey wheat.

Pours a hazy peach color with a foamy tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma is fruity. Tastes of hops with a hint of banana up front; fruit at the finish.

Bought a can of Brew Bus Are Wheat There Yet! whilst in Ft. Lauderdale to take on a cruise. The beer poured a cloudy white in color with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent was orange peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was light in body with good carbonation. Overall I enjoyed it and believe its worth a try.

Pours a cloudy/hazy golden color with white head. Citrus, light fruits, pine, and some wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with hoppy wheat notes. Nice change of pace for a wheat ale.

- spiegelau ipa glass from can.

A: Foamy dirty eggshell white head is short lasting after a promising 2 finger rise. Bright orange, slight haze obstructs clarity but not the healthy rate of effervesce within. Weak clinging lace with almost no coverage rate.

S: Spicy citric-orange nose, very quick glimpses of tropical fruit in passing degrades to a soft citrus-straw scent.

T: Spicy orange and citric-grapefruit tang, with a bit of pineapple. Creamy tropical fruitiness, soft grassy-citrus hops of moderate awareness. Yeasty tang of banana-orange, fresh, fruity and wet. Semi-dry lemon-grapefruit, spicy orange-citric alcohol.

M: Crisp mouthful, nice creaminess on the texture, crisp acidic orange-citrus, fresh and wet off the tongue with a short duration.

O: Overall nose held promise but faded way to quickly, appearance was so-so, the flavor and mouthful kicked it up a notch making this a try. Spicy citric-tropical wheat with a twist.

A: The beer is very hazy dark golden yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that gradually died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass and a few specks of bubbles on the surface.
S: Light aromas of tropical fruits are present in the nose—pineapples seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell, except that the pineapple flavors are a tad stronger and there are also hints of grapes to go along with hints of underlying wheat. No bitterness is noticeable.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is extremely easy to drink and has pleasant aromas and flavors from interesting hop varieties that you would expect from an IPA, but they are obviously subdued given that this is a wheat beer.

Poured from 12oz can into a weizen glass.

Appearance: murky yellow-gold hue with almost 3 fingers of frothy white foam atop. Head seems to have pretty good retention and it leaves a bit of chunky lace on the glass. Attractive.

Smell: very tropical hops sit atop a sweet and wheaty base. I'm getting tangerine, mango, grapefruit and a little pine; it's awesome. I love it.

Taste: piney and lemony and grapefruity hops right up front, with a lightly refreshing lemony-wheaty finish. Its one fault is that it is a tad soapy, but otherwise this beer really does the trick for me.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and a pretty good creaminess. It's alright.

Overall: I really enjoy the aroma of this beer, and the flavor ain't half-bad either. It just kind of rubs me the right way.

I live in Tampa and love to support local craft brews. I bought "Are Wheat There Yet?" as a single can to try. I poured it into a pub glass. The beer is a cloudy gold color, with a nice white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. The smell is fruity with hints of floral as well. The taste is a refreshing blend of fruit. This is not my favorite beer, but it's a very, very good choice if your looking for a cold American brewed beverage.
