Appearance - Hazy amber/orange with a large size fizzy and frothy white coloured head. Hard to make out the carbonation level due to the haziness and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes before it began to dissipate.
Smell – Grains, oranges, coriander, an earthiness
Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste lots of oranges mixed with grains and coriander. I'm also getting a bit of an earthiness/funk but that might be from the 'Oregon honey' that they apparently use. It finishes with a tart orange aftertaste.
Overall – The beer had a nice interesting taste. It really isn't your typical wheat beer. I'd say that it's definitely worth trying if you haven't already. Thanks Swedes21

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
