3/5  rDev -14.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a light turbid gold topped by a white frothy head.

Inhaling long and deeply mostly I get grains, and a bit of the honey, orange and coriander as advertised, but it's though they did nothing to make them integrate them into the aroma in a way that was enticing or in any way remarkable.

Taste is light, honey with straw and pale malts and wheat with orange in the finish. Crisp and dry with light bitterness. There's something to this that reminds me of soda crackers or matzo crackers. Overall the flavor profile is very subdued.

There's a high level of carbonation that lends an aspect of Perrier to the taste. This makes it crisp and refreshing but diminishes the flavors for me.

This is a very approachable beer, one that's good for summer drinking in a pinch. But it wouldn't be my first choice.

3.39/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

kind of a random purchase when I got that once-in-awhile craving for a boring APWA

a: wheat ale glass, lightly hazed honey golden in color, topped with a thin layer of white carbonation, average retention

s: wheat and pale malt base, clean with a light peppery spice, a little floral, brief glimpses of orange, some bready yeast aromas, not very fruity but some apple or pear, mildly hopped

m: carbonation a touch spritzy, lower in level, with a lighter body

t: cleanly grainy wheat and very pale malts through and through, some yeast, mild orange peel, grassy hop flavors, just a touch of sugar early before drying thoroughly to leave a hint of spice and mild bitterness, very delicate honey flavors that are quite tough to pull out - but that's usually expected with honey, pretty one-dimensional here

o: not bad but fairly uninteresting and one-dimensional, nothing off about it though - would be a decent choice on a hot summer day, honey pretty much absent
