Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Surly tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy yellowish golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid three fingers of white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of clingy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A wheat and grain forward aroma with nice hints of citrus fruit and earthy hops. Wheat and pale malt upfront with hints of grains, biscuit, cracker, straw, and yeast. Subtle hints of white pepper. Citrus hop hints of orange, pineapple, apricot, melon, and lemon. Earthy and floral hop hints as well. A pretty nice and zesty wheat beer aroma that is well balanced by the hops.
Taste: Like it smells, a zesty and bready wheat driven taste with nice notes of citrus fruit and earthy hops. Lots of wheat upfront along with malt notes of biscuit, grains, crackers, yeast, and straw. A little white pepper spice and honey like sweetness. Citrus hop notes of orange, apricot, pineapple, lemon, and melon. Earthy and floral hop presence with notes of grass. A pretty solid well balanced taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp and smooth. Fairly drying.
Overall: A solid wheat ale. Hoppier than usual for the style but it lends a nice balance.
Serving type: can
