1.8/5 rDev -40.6%
Served at the Madison area restaurant on tap
A - More orange than I remember, some pale highlights, opaque. Bits of pulp floating in the beer.
S - Way too much citrus, some cereals, no hops.
T - Orange juice in shredded wheat
M - Medium. I remember it being a light mouthfeel before but now it's getting heavier. Carbonation is fine.
O - It seems with this batch they forgot the citrus addition during brewing and "fixed" it by pouring orange juice into the beer upon serving. It's too bad because I remember this being a fairly decent wheat beer but now it's a mish mash of orange pulp, citrus sugar, and the remnants of a beer recipe. Undrinkable.

2.48/5 rDev -18.2%
Reviewed from tasting notes.
Transparent pilsner light yellow transparent straw color, one finger of relatively stable head with small loops of lacing. Light and thin body, heavy fizzy carbonation made me feel gassy and bloated with each sip. Way too much carbonation.
Tastes and smells faintly of mild earthy noble hops with a little bit of wheat malt sweetness that marginally dries up towards the finish with some ghostly citrus peel. If the carbonation is going to be this high, the flavors and aroma should be at least a factor of ten higher than what they are here in order to punch through the distracting fizziness.
My suggestion is either to reduce the carbonation levels or boost the flavor / aroma accordingly. Actually, do both. As it is, my beer should *not* be like a spritzey mineral water.

3/5 rDev -1%
Reviewed from notes.
Hazy yellow with a white foamy head, with decent retention and lacing. The taste and aroma are both similar, with wheat, grain. and citrus.
Light to medium bodied, well carbonated. Not much of an aftertaste. Not bad or stellar, just decent.
