This beer is refreshing. I explored it in a variety pack in April and wondered if it was the left-over of the Valentine special. It seems insignificant at first, but the aftertaste is a perfect blend of sweet and bitter. It reminds me of Cherry Dr. Pepper but not like a thick syrup. It's light and easy to drink all night. It has a flavor that stimulates the pallet and wakes you up with a pleasant vibrancy.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a wheat beer glass. Pours cloudy orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of wheat, nothing too surprising. Tastes of wheat and very slight orange, nice combination. Beer is heavily carbonated, light bodied, good finish. Overall a slightly above average beer.

In the beer's defense the distributor I purchased it from sold beer that was bottled in September so it is not super fresh.

A-Interesting bottle design and not one that I have seen before. Pink frontal lay with the brewery name a cross the top with the name of the beer on the bottom. Good choice of cap with a gold star and red outlay (will go great with my collection). Too "feminine" for me to truly enjoy. Bonus points for putting the master brewer on the label.

S-The smell is very crisp and clean; very much what you would expect from a wheat beer.

T-The taste is surprisingly refreshing and certainly emulates the crisp and clean smell that gets your senses started.

M-There is something missing as you feel the beer hit your tongue but it very refreshing.

O-It is a good wheat beer but lacks in flavor in my book. It would be a good drink for a hot day while mowing your lawn or laying on the beach.

A: A loud, audible crackling and popping from a foamy, dirty white head leaves much to be desired with a washy, quick, descent. A hazy, brass coloring has a rapid rate of macro-bubble effervesce while the lacing is lean and disappointing.

S: Aroma of pale wheat, light rose hibiscus, small tart funk that was near moot. There really isn't alot going on here, a fade of semi-dry orange peels with a strength and complexity that was flat lining.

T: Flavor of tart orange and wheat, funk, hefeweizen yeast, bubblegum and tangerine. Hint of apple cider.

M: Mouthful was crisp, sparkling, lots of activity, feels a bit foamy when things die down.

O: Overall, moderate drinkability at best, may be a overcarbonated and hardly worthy seeking out.
