A: Brilliant clarity on a tarnished orange coloring shows a strong and fast rate of effervesce. The head is initially good, a solid finger, some fizziness and bubbly action atop with a one part creamy and one part frothy texture. Retention was moderate, lasting a few good minutes while the lacing was weak, spotty, and hardly worth a mention. Squeaks by with above average regards, but not by much.

S: Stale metallic oranges, weak and a big drop off from the visual aspect. Soft feathery green hops, but where is the wheat character? Hardly impressive to say the least.

T: Oranges and flowery with a spicy hop character. Much better defined then the nose. Sweet orange with a touch of dried honey flower.

M: Medium body, a bit creamy, some resistance but overall just an average experience.

O: Labeled as a cross between a bright wheat and wheat wine ale, both of which i didnt see. Easy drinkability but little fan fare. Its not bad flavor wise, just not what i consider a wheat beer by any stretch let alone bright. Average.

Looks quite lovely in the tall glass, golden with a touch of amber. Weird root flavor, like vegetable broth with some parsnips. Malty and fairly rich, rather sweet. Not much in the way of hops.

I remember this as being better, so probably like a lot of malty beers it has started going south. Odd perfumey flavor. A touch of the plastic.

I like the brewery and I should have reviewed this a year ago. From the 12 oz bottle.
