Nice looking wheat ale. Dirty straw yellow with hints of orange thrown in. Think orange juice with a healthy splash of coke. So hazy that light has a difficult time penetrating. Nice firm head, great retention.
Wheat malt, orange peel and sweet honey are all detectable, more so as the beer warms a bit.
Smmoth, almost creamy wheat malt followed by that snap that causes some to add a lemon wedge. The hint of sweet orange peel follows as does the hint of sweet honey. A sharp bitterness in the finish is slightly off-putting though.
Smooth almost creamy feel to the start, tends to get a little watery in the middle.
Interesting take on this style. I liked it muchly

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
