Not a huge wheat beer fan but this brew is helping me change. Only available on draft at their D-tow location, if you're near by or frequent the place this beer is certainly worth a try. With a slightly hazy, straw colored body and a pronounced white head, this Hoppy Wheat Ale will leave you craving another. A balanced aroma featuring peppery wheat aspects and fruity esters, prepares you for the mild hop bitterness that stands up against the chewy grain flavor from the rich imported malts.

Gold color with excellent clarity. Looks more like a lager than a hoppy wheat ale. Beautiful crown of white adorns a ferverously carbonated brew. Excellent.

Cracked wheat and musty hops meet crisp citrus and red delicious apple. Leaning toward green leaf and guava with a hint of grapefruit. Smells great.

Crispy and a little tangy. Slight banana ester creeping in amongst citrusy and floral hops. More of that bite of pomme and almost farmhouse-like delicious strangeness. Finishes with a tingle of soft peppery spice.

Mushy in the mouth, but super-easy. Low maintenance beer with a good sudsy carbonation.

I love this hoppy wheat offering. A great pale with balance and drinkability. Recommended.

Small head but it lasts and leaves a solid ring of lace. The liquid is straw with a bit of white from the haze.

I smell aggressive dry hop, with yeast

Nice banana flavor up front. The black peppery hop kicks in quickly and dominates the rest of the taste through the swallow and aftertaste. The flavor also features some sweetness but it's mild. Good body and carbonation for the style.

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden. Pours clear amber orange with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating to a light film, leaving small streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smells of grassy, piney and slightly citric hops as well as some mildly toasted caramel malt and bready wheat. Taste is pretty similar to the nose. Lots of bitter hops up front with some chewy wheat and sweet caramel malt backing it all up. Crisp, bitter feel with some chewy sweetness toward the end of each sip.

Overall a decent hybrid IPA. Good amount of hops backed up by a strong core of wheat and malt. Another nice IPA out of Victory.
