3.15/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5
Had on tap in a pint glass
A-incredibley hazy to the point it's opaque. Thin head gathered around the edge. Almost looks creamy.
S-dry wheat, orange peel, citrus zest
T&D- just like the nose slight orange zest with a very dry flavor. Honey is pretty non noticeable
Overall I had high hopes for it but it just came off alot like a beefed up blue moon I was pretty let down by the lack of orange and honey in it.
Serving type: on-tap

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
Serving type: bottle
