look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

From a bottle to a pilsner glass.

A: light gold very transparent. Light wispy head and no lace

S: strong citrus aroma to this one like oranges and grapefruit

T: not as flavorful as the smell might indicate. Still picking up citrus notes but it's mild enough that it's hard to pick out which fruit.

M: light mouthfeel, very easy to drink.

O: A sold beer if you have been working outside all day and need a refreshing brew. Of you looking for a flavor bomb try something else.

12oz bottle into as pint glass.

Not sure what happened here. I guess it's called 'dirty' because it has a cloudy appearance, and muddled aroma and taste. Smells like a wheat beer, with hints of some spiciness, nothing special though. But the flavor...let's just agree that it's got all the stuff you'd expect and some more. Feels weak and watery, medium body, some carbonation. I am not impressed. I've had other Atwater offerings, and this is by far the worst I've had, and does not represent the overall quality you should expect.

Sorry guys, it just wasn't good.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled April 2014.

Actually bought this by mistake, had some memories of a beer with similar name that the missus actually enjoyed. This was not it.

Hazy dirty blond color with some dark floaties. (The coriander?) Thin head, minimal lacing.

Only getting a little belgian yeast on the nose. No spices, no orange peel.

Did get a faint touch of spice in the mouth, along with the yeast. No other taste at all.

Mouth was really disappointing. Extremely watery. No orange taste at all, and struggling to find the coriander.

Overal, a pretty unispiring beer. Refreshing on a very hot day, perhaps, cant think of any other positive reason for buying it.
