3.28/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Poured from 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint.
Appearance: Orange/gold, transparent liquid that was obviously filtered because of the clarity. 1 cm head that quickly dissipated leaving no trace. Disappointing for a wheat beer where I expect huge heads.
Smell: The orange fragrance was very prevalent along with a floral hops hint. Pleasant.
Taste: Tangy orange. This is the prominent flavor throughout. There is a very slight bitterness to balance the flavor. The aftertaste is pure orange sweet-tart that stays around for a while in the mouth. You can savor some of the typical wheat malt that is common to the style.
Mouthfeel: Medium. About normal for the style. Not too much or too little carbonation.
Drinkability: A very drinkable brew that I would have again, but it's far from my favorite for the style. I like orange, so that doesn't turn me off like it might others. I'd have one again, but don't know if I'd buy a six-pack.
Comments: It was not what I expected. I anticipated something more like a Belgian Wit or a German Hefe, but it was neither. None of the cloudy, flavorful yeasts to be had in those styles. However, I don't think this was supposed to be one of those but rather it's own thing.

2.71/5 rDev -17.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Served on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with no head or lacing whatsoever. Not a good start.
There are some hints of light orange peel and coriander in the aroma but light is the key word here. Not very exciting at all.
The flavor continues the trend of light flavors with a bit of caramel from the malt along with more orange and a bit of a bready yeasty note. Mouthfeel is extremely watery and light with just the least bit of bitterness.
Overall, I am disappointed with this one. Everything about it is light and a bit boring.
Serving type: on-tap
