Flower Review - Wagners Blue Lime Pie
Reviewed by the POTery's Potanist: Jack
Visual/ Bag Appeal - 7/10 - Small, definitely machine trimmed nugs that boast a pale mossy green hue accompanied by dull orange pistils with the occasional hint of purple deeper in the bud. While this bud may not be the most vibrant, it is still coated in a heavy coating of mostly intact trichome heads.
Smoke Quality - 5.5/10 - I found this lot to be a tad harsh, with a bit of salt n pepper ash. It was definitely tolerable, but the rough exhale was certainly a downside. With that being said, it still burned evenly and left a medium sized oil ring on the paper, and I would smoke it again.
Aroma - 7/10 - Upon cracking open my jar, I was greeted with a slightly spicy citrus note, which was followed by a sweet and mellow earthy scent. Very balanced between the bright citrus of the key lime pie with the heavy sweet aroma of a blue power. I will say, although the aroma is pleasant, it is not very strong which made it somewhat difficult to pick out the different notes in it.
Flavour - 6.5/10- The pleasant aroma only somewhat translated to flavour, with a sweet earthy taste being more on the forefront with a gentle citrus spice on the exhale. I found this to be most enjoyable in a joint, as the flavour comes out more muted and earthy in a bong. This was very enjoyable, but did not have the depth that I expected from the genetics.
Effect - 7.5/10 - I found this to be a pretty balanced hybrid, maybe leaning slightly to the indica-dominant side. This hybrid is the perfect potency for a daytime or evening smoke depending on tolerance. I found that this strain did not stimulate my appetite, which can be a positive or a negative depending on the individual's needs. I found this strain to be quite relaxing with a nice balance of uplifting effects that would be great for doing housework or for a lazy day.
Overall Thoughts: Great genetics with a very pleasant aroma that sadly did not translate into taste as well as I would have liked, but still a decent smoke. I would have rated this much higher had the quality of the smoke been a bit better, but the somewhat harsh exhales and the slightly dark ash knocked it down a few points. Despite its downfalls, it was still a very enjoyable experience and for the price at $30+tx, I would buy it again and recommend it to others.
Overall Score: 6.7/10
