Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 16 oz. can into an Upland pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy orange-gold color with 1.5 fingers of white head. Visible carbonation on the low side.

S: Wheat predominates, although the impression is only a bit grainy. Faint citrus as well, but overall not a ton in the aroma.

T: Wheat and cracker malt, light orange citrus or perhaps orange zest, very light spiciness. Hop bitterness is in balance, not a punch-in-the-mouth profile. A clean finish with a bit of sweet grain flavors and a very slight hop bitter. The pilsner malt character of the beer grows some as it warms.

M: Medium body, essentially no alcohol presence. Good carbonation sensation.

O: This wasn't terribly exciting, but isn't flawed and it's well-made to be an easy drink during a hot concert.

A- Somewhat cloudy orange body with tons of floaters in it. Fluffy white head that leaves a ton a lacing all over.

S- Lots of fruity, tropical hop aroma, very yeasty, almost slightly sour like a lager yeast, grainy wheat.

T- Lots of wheat from beginning to end. Very nice hop presence that adds the tropical fruit flavors.

M- A little fuller body than I expected from a wheat beer. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, I guess the wheat adds some body.

O- Very good for the style. Great hop selection, perfect beer for a can.
