A: hazy gold, plenty of lacing, and a head that lasts forever.

S: bouquet is that of a pale ale more than anything else. Centennial hops meld with citrusy wheat.

T: taste follows the nose, delivering a wheaty pale ale. Piney hopes and wheat combine for a deliciously thirst quenching experience.

M: medium body and heavy carbonation.

D: great for the hot day at Founders Fest.

Got to sample this at Founders Fest! The review is from notes taken on 6/19/2010 and poured from the tap to a big ol' plastic cup.

Appearance: Pours a wheaty yellow/orange/coppery color and starts with a short 1/2 finger head that's white; head fades to a full and complete cap; body is very cloudy, but shows very fast and tiny bubbles of carbonation near the sides; a nice ring and a few washes of lacing are left behind.

Smell: A nice and sweet citric and juicy orange/mango presence; a bit of a sweet bready yeastiness; nose is solid, and there is a bit of a peppery spiciness lingering in there as well.

Taste: Nice light an smooth citric aspect (orange, possible a hint of banana and mango tropical presence as well); a slight Belgian peppery/clove like spiciness in there and a bit of a tall and toasty wheaty graininess; also, there is a bit of a grassy hoppy bitterness lingering in the back. Quite solid.

Mouthfeel: Mouth is smooth and fairly creamy; body is of medium weight; carbonation is light, yet very present; a thin semi-dry coating is left hanging on to the entire palate.

Drinkability: This could really be an all-day kind of beer, especially in this warmer summer weather; nice light and smooth flavors and a body that doesn't necessarily weigh you down, I wish there was a known ABV to help me determine this in a more overall fashion, but going by what I picked up in the beer, it's a great drinker.

Reviewed on 6/27/2010. On tap at Founders. The beer pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, hop oils, and wheat malt. Flavor of hop spices, light floral hops, and citrus. It is very hoppy for a wheat beer and pretty tasty too.
