2.15/5 rDev -10.8%
12 oz Bottle - Dec 20, 2007. Aroma glows of light styrofoam and tangerine spritz. Weird. Lightly off. Comes out as a clouded pale orange with white soapy rim. Flavor is a thin, minimal cardboard, mineral and light, faint infection. Bland and terrible. Nothing really there and what is, isn’t working. Finishes on palpable wax. Thanks anyway Sean!

Appearance is a burnt orange hazy cloudy , slight lacing. every bottle tells you it has sediment. So it has floaters, looks like cloudy beer, kinda funky.
Smell- Can smell the alcohol for sure, Malt and citrus like the bottle descripts, but boozy smell over powers that for me
Taste- I dont like it, maybe you will. Not typical wheat flavor,,,,again earthy, Much like the other beer i had from this Brewery . Alcohol warming too. and that soapy taste again too? refreshing bland taste. Acidic slightly, metallic also , poured from bottle into a snifter could swear im drinking form a can? The taste is not bad I would prefer to drink something with flavor. Malt becomes more pronounced after warm up.
Mouth fell- Soapy? What with this place and this flavor? Maybe it is the type of yeast they use, I don't know but I dislike it. Loaded with small tight carbonation bubbles that gives it the refreshing feel. A cloying after taste that is less than desirable . Not overpowering but meh?!?!
Overall will not seek out or buy anything form this brewery until i can confirm that soapy taste is completely gone. For a Summer Beer this has no qualities to lead me to believe that it is. I am expecting citrus or lemon or orange as the label would lead you to believe. Like a refreshing wheat style shandy or something along that line , Not just something more than bland flavor with a kicked up abv.

A decent beer. Drinkable... nothing spectacular.
I got this at the MCBW on tap as part of their sampler and I didn't think it was too bad. Not too strong on flavor, but pretty high on the ABV... was served with a slice of orange as well. No head, and minimal carbonation.
It's an A-OK made in Detroit beer.
