Clear orange, decent head.

Not too much going on with the smell, slight citrus note as it warms.

Crisp grain, hint of lemon or orange, toasted bread or cracker. Sort of an Octoberfest hop note.

Very crisp, smooth mouthfeel.

I thought this was very tasty, and a nice light option.

Pours gold in color with a half finger white head that dissipates instantly

Nose has large wheat and grain character that smells extremely sweet with a musty hint of sour orange.

Taste is better then then smell. Large amounts of grain and wheat are overlayed with a sweet and sour flavor that doesn't overpower the character of the grainy malt. A musty orange flavor also is present.

Mouthfeel is good, medium body with mild carbonation.

There's something off about this. I'm not sure what but it feels like corn.

(Served in a bowtie glass)
A- This beer pours a clear dark orange body with a pale white head of bubbles that boils into a thin ring. There is a quick carbonation of bubbles pushing to the surface.

S- The clean aroma only has a slight tart note when it warms.

T- The gentle taste of dirt and pale malt lead to a faint corn hint with some green hop hues in the finish. There is a cream note in the finish and some sweet tart flavors come through as it opens but it is very clean in flavor.

M- The light mouthfeel has a soft fizz prick in the finish.

O- The crisp clean beer doesn’t have any off flavor and unfortunately has very little flavor at all. It went down fast but not enough character to reach for another.
