What the brewers say

“American wheat, light, citrusy, and fruity. GABF 2013 Bronze, 2015 Gold.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Bready and sweet malts at the start, with estery notes of bubblegum, fruit, and floral. Just a touch of honey, with some bready malt and toast. A subtle resinous hops character blends with vegetal undertones of celery and cauliflower, and earthy and musty notes. Overall, though, the aroma is quite low.”

Flavor: “This is on the sweeter side, with a caramel-and-toffee bent. Some malt richness is fairly understated, some pastry crust, and honey that lingers through the finish. Bubblegum and clove mingle with some floral and fruity esters and a touch of hops flavors that are herbal and slightly bitter. The finish is dry, with a hint of bitterness.”

Overall: “Light and refreshing, with some interesting yeast character. Lots of honey on the flavor gives the impression of sweetness without the beer actually being sweet, and the bitterness on the finish cleanses the palate for the next sip. The toffee character is interesting, and the ester and yeast add a pleasant layer of complexity.”
