Haze CharmerHaze Charmer
Notes: Haze Charmer emerges from a soft, swirling cloud of oats and unmalted wheat. Vigorous dry-hopping adds a second phase of haze, propping up the oils of El Dorado and Citra hops. Each sip delivers notes of juicy pineapple, fresh grapefruit and candied peach balanced by a hint of white pine and low bitterness. A soft, juicy and hazy pale ale, Haze Charmer is here to cast its spell on you. We taste: juicy pineapple, fresh grapefruit, candied peach, hint of white pine.

Malt: Honey Malt, Malted Wheat, Oats, Pale Malt, Unmalted Wheat
Hops: Citra, El Dorado, Lotus, Mosaic

Very light and hazy in appearance. Good head with decent retention. Smells of light pine. The taste is pineapple and finishes with grapefruit. Very sweet with moderate carbonation. Finishes clean and kind of thin. Not bad, easy drinking and perfect for summer.

Bottle. Hazy indeed. Straw coloured with a thin bubbly head.
Mild aroma of mixed tropical and citrus fruits.
Tastes similar. Light grass and pine present.
Soft carbonation. Light to medium body.
A bit under flavoured.

Hazy orange with sticky white foam; dank pineapple nose; slight toffee, orange slices, mango, light pine; smooth, soft, light.

4 4 4.25 4.25 4

Citra, Idaho 7, Azacca (per the can label)

Bright and bouncy - the fun side of Citra + a bit of gooey tropical from Azacca.
Way sessionable, which is what it’s aiming for.
Troegs have a quality bar + they don’t miss it often.

A - Hazy medium gold pour with very sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

S - Light grainy malt base and delicate candied citrus on the nose. Overall, not alot of aroma.

T - Light grain base malt with citrus, grapefruit, very delicate pine apple, and some slight spicy citrus rind. Ends with light bitterness and some lingering candied tropical fruit on the palate.

M - Big medium body with with a little bit of thinness around the edges.

O - Not really my gig but would be interested in trying a fresher bottle.

Cloudy gold appearance with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma of stone fruit along with layers of tropical fruit and citrus. Subtle but nuanced. Taste brings those qualities together while finishing in a piney note. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel. Overall, just like the way this package comes together. At first, I thought this was just going to be a mediocre session beer but was surprised how much I enjoyed it.

Purchased at the Troegs brewery, enjoyed in a frosted tulip glass.

L - Good and hazy, medium yellow color, light head, small lacing
S - Fruit upfront, mostly pineapple like, maybe grapefruit
T - Wheat is what I first experienced. Not a big wheat beer guy so this was a bit of a turn-off for me but nevertheless, the taste is clean and distinctive. Clean and crisp come to mind first.
F -Clean sharp finish that does not linger on the back of the palate. Refreshing, good for summer days.
O - While I was not overwhelmed by this beer mostly due to t the fact that it is brewed primarily with wheat and oats, I want to give it a fair shake. Not my "cup of tea" but still a well-brewed and balanced beer it falls in the middle to somewhat lower of the pack for me but that is due to the fact that IPAs are my favorite. I could buy a sixpack and enjoy it during the summer months while working outside in the yard.

This was a bit of a disappointment. Pored from a can, with light head. Pleasant, but not distinctive aroma. Taste was thin and watery. Not what I was expecting from Troegs. I'll stick with Peretual.

I got a can of this beer off the single shelf from my local Giant Eagle store. It poured a hazy golden with thin white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had subtle bright citrus notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bright citrus presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a good beer.

12 oz bottle from Pennsylvania served in a lager glass.
Appearance. This has a hazy straw colored body with a good white head.
Aroma. Tropical fruit bites from the hops dominate, including pineapple and orange.
Flavor. Follows the aroma but with the addition of wheat, pine, grapefruit and multigrain bread. Low bitterness and high balance for the style.
Mouthfeel. Light body with medium carbonation.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a 1.5" white head, which lasts. Moderate lacing.

Aroma is grapefruit, orange, pineapple.

Taste follows nose: grapefruit, orange, pineapple, also a slight pine.

Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Semidry finish.

A very nice hazy Pale Ale.

Solid summer refresher that imparts citrus and mild tropical tones. Oats smooth out any lingering hop bitterness. Plenty of great smelling frothy head. Great beer for those that prefer a palatable pale ale vs an overpowering hop monster. Great session beer on draft.

From a 12oz bottle dated freshest by 9/9/21 into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy pale brownish yellow. Great retention, moderate lacing.

Smells of oranges, tangerines, grapefruit and mango.

Taste is similar to the nose. Citrus, pineapple, mango are noticeable. Very, very slight bitterness on the swallow.

Thin, soft mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Lightly citrusy acidic aftertaste.

Overall, very juicy for a pale ale. For this type of PA, Pseudo Sue is probably the standard. This isn't that good, but it's not terrible.

Hazy gold, creamy white head, decent retention, awesome lace
Grapefruit, passionfruit, and pineapple aromas
Hop flavors mimic aroma, although more subdued. Oat milk like malt quality
Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation
Not bad, but wouldn't buy again outside of a mix pack.

Purchased as a single can from Kroger for $1.69. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

L - Hazy dark yellow with a wonderfully creamy milk-white head.
S - Very hop-forward. Pineapple, grapefruit peel, and slight stone fruit. An air of sweetness is present, but only a little bit.
T - Candied stone fruit hit me like a bus here! Definitely bitter, but toned down by a sort of floral sweetness. Pineapple and grapefruit are here, but are rounded out by a nice wheat and oat base. Earthy throughout. Mineral finish.
F - Dry. Clean finish. Medium body, with medium carbonation. Refreshing.
O - What a lovely beer to review for my "Aspirant" rank up! A very rounded-out and clean pale ale. Refreshing, but not too drinkable; would pair nicely with summer food. Relatively bitter for the style - I had to do a double-take on the label to ensure it wasn't an IPA! I'll definitely purchase this again as a fridge-stocker beer. Definitely recommend.

Pours a hazy orangish yellow color with a big white foamy head which stays for a while ultimately developing a frothy lacing. Pineapple and apple on the nose with pine, hops. Taste follows the nose with the addition of grapefruit for mild tartness and bitterness. Very drinkable pale ale.

Not exactly hazy; more pond water cloudy. Head is a craggy monstrosity. Lotta lacing, though. Hard to rate this on the looks scale. Peach and melon and (I want to say) lemon on the nose. Something bitter and citrusy, anyway. Taste is just a generic fruity hodge-podge. Melon, grape, peach, candied citrus. Thin-bodied and far too effervescent with a weird, lingering low-level bitterness. It's like vomiting after swilling too many screwdrivers or something. I'm not generally a fan of this style to begin with, so it's charms may just escape me, but I don't particularly care for this.
