Appearance: Dark amber in color with thick white head. Extremely dark for a wheat beer. Good Clarity.

Smell: Hoppy, citrus, light dank, light ammonia, tropical fruits.

Taste: Surprisingly light. Light malty sweetness, a little bit of chocolate. Similar hoppy characteristics as the smell.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, crisp, medium carbonation.

Overall: Unique take on the style. Decent hybrid, but I would have liked a little more pronounced wheat characteristics. Good enough to drink again, but I'm not sure I would seek it out.

Clear brown body with a soapy off-white head that leaves an archipelago of lace. Nose is very bready, including toasted and crust, with an overtone of caramel and must. The flavor is equally focused on the bread and burnt grapes, with a bitter, chalky finish. Body is medium-full, with a surprising, but for once out-of-place, smoothness.
Missed the mark. The malts didn't provide much sweetness nor appreciable flavor, and the hops contributed only the negative aspects of bitterness. I'm still searching for a tasty example of this style.
