A: A dense marshmellow structure sits above a tawny-orange body with a fine, misty rise of carbonation within. Head retention is lengthy and strong while providing a thick band of foam lacing adhering to the vessel on descent with a milky thin covering atop.

S: Spicy fresh tangerine with a spicy hop wiff of citrus. A bit of candy sugar, fresh wheat, light semi-dry lime with some citron notes. There are background nuances of candy-cola with a slight hint of kiwi-strawberry. Fruity.

T: The flavor is spicy and tart tangerine, wheat, lemon and lime hopping that was fairly aggressive. Grapefruit floral hints, some yeasty fruitiness of apricots, banana and pear. Really spicy bite of hops and tangerine twang that shows a cantelope fruitiness. Finishes with some oaky sweet alcohol.

M: Medium full body, creamy texture of wheat that was softly carbonated.

O: Overall enjoyed this, a very good summer time hoppy wheat with a fruity twang and yeasty contributes that was wet and refreshing, lightly tart finish. Easy hot weather drinking beer, nice level of hops.

12oz bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy pale straw color with a very small head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is spicy and herbal hops along with some breadiness and hints of ctirus. The taste is an odd mix of what i can only describe as dill and olive oil Triscuits. I love that flavor of Triscuits but in a beer it is somewhat less appetizing. Some spicy and herbal hop notes at the finish. Not much else going on here except for that dill and olive oil Triscuits taste. Light mouthfeel with not much of an alcohol presence. Overall, I won't be buying this agin.
