Poured into a Riedel tulip. The liquid is a hazy gold with plenty of bubbles, and the pour kicks up a thick, although somewhat disappointing, eggwhite head that fades after a minute, but leaves plenty of lace.

Aroma is citrusy, floral hops. If I was blindfolded, I could have almost believed that this was Daisy Cutter. There's just a hint of spiciness from the wheat, and the other malts give it a candied-orange feel.

Taste is tons of citrusy hops up front, mixed with a nice peppery spiciness. Finish is less bitter than all the hop flavor would suggest, though still fairly bitter, and surprisingly clean. The aftertaste leaves a nice wheaty bread flavor along with some lingering oranges.

Mouthfeel is moderately thick and silky smooth, with plenty of prickly carbonation to cut through it.

Overall, really nice hoppy wheat beer. The hops definitely steal the show, but they're not too overpowering to prevent the wheat from playing too. Really, really enjoyable! Thanks to batfireman for sending this as an extra.
