Score Sheet #1 - Judged by a Certified judge and scored 39

Judge: Charles Simchick (bjcp@simchick.net)
Judge Qualification: Certified
Entry ID: 24299687
Style: 6D American Wheat or Rye Beer
Beer Info:
Descriptors: Sour/Acidic
Bottle Inspection: All Good
Bottle Comments: wheat ale brewed with lemon peel and grains of paradise

Aroma:
Moderate wheat graininess with light spicy hop aroma. Light citrus notes. Clean fermentation character, with no diacetyl or DMS noted.
9 / 12

Appearance:
Bright golden with light haze. Fine white head is not as large as expected for style, but collects in a nice collar and wispy cover and has excellent persistence.
2 / 3

Flavor:
Flavor mirrors aroma, with prominent wheat character and somewhat more firm lemon zest citrus notes. Lightly sweet on the center of the tongue, but medium bitterness over the back of the palate is well-balanced and pleasant. Slightly tart aftertaste.
16 / 20

Mouthfeel:
Medium-light body with medium carbonation that provides for a crisp feel. No alcohol warmth, creaminess, or astringency, however a solid carbonic bite gives an impression of more spice. A medium-low sense of stickiness lingers in the finish, which detracts somewhat from the enjoyment.
4 / 5

Overall:
Crisp and refreshing, and generally true to expectations. The aftertaste/feel keeps this beer from being more quaffable, but is not so much as to significantly reduce enjoyment on a hot summer day.
