When first served, the head dissipated quickly and there was just enough left around the rim to provide aroma when my pint arrived at the table. On first glance, everything you expect in a wheat beer is there (a golden color, a nice hazy appearance, and low-carbonation).

Upon tasting, there is a little more citrus flavor present than in your typical Hefeweizen. I noted a medium presence of lime and orange. Also, the Hop/Malt and Yeast character are in good balance producing a taste that is smooth throughout and doesn’t overwhelm you at any point like a more hop-centric style would.

Being someone who defaults to more hopped up brew styles I appreciated the clean citrus flavor of this brew and would actually take one over the IPA I order on my usual visits to Bosque Brewing. This beer is a solid 4 mugs in my opinion.

Nice large foamy head, good lacing, and a fair amount of carbonation. Aesthetically speaking, this beer has everything I look for in a great beer.  Crisp clean initially with a smooth creamy wheat flavored finish. Not a lot of yeast flavors usually found in a Hefe which is a plus for me. Overall a great light summer beer that leaves you wanting more after every sip.  The only reason for not giving this beer 5 mugs is that it was the first to be reviewed and I had no comparison.

CHEERS!

About Our Review Process

About Our Reviews

The beer review process at ABQBeer.com does not conform to any standard held outside of this site. Although you may see professional terminology in our writing, we are not professional reviewers or brewers. We are simply local home brewers and beer enthusiasts.

Our rating system is simple. Beer can have from 1 to 5 mugs. One being sub-par, three corresponding to above average, and five being exceptional. While a sub-par one or two rating theoretically exists in our system, you will not see many. The reason being that we do not really see a point in talking about beer we don’t like. If you are looking to read complaints and overly critical posts, I welcome you to take a look at the rest of the internet. We believe that everyone’s time (everyone contributing and reading content on this site) will be better served talking about what to drink as opposed to devoting valuable time and energy complaining about what we won’t drink and why.

With that said, we chose a well rounded group of reviewers with differing tastes, interests, and experience. In the future, there will be up to 10 reviewers regularly contributing. The reviews are simply opinions reflecting each reviewers individual tastes. The best way to make use of the reviews is to find a reviewer who’s tastes best mirror your own. A reviewer that has similar tastes as yourself will be the most likely to lead you to beer treasure in the future!

If you differ on our approach, our review rankings, or have something to talk about that we missed, you are welcome to your own opinion in our forums and comment sections.

Salud!
